Upsides are good. had a great ADD article today:

Here's my favorite part:

People with ADHD “may instead be our most creative individuals, our most extraordinary thinkers, our most brilliant inventors and pioneers,” writes Hartmann in his 2003 book The Edison Gene: ADHD and the Gift of the Hunter Child. He posits that the people with ADHD may carry genetically coded abilities that once were, and may still be, necessary for human survival and that contribute richness to the culture.

I do have enough creativity to kill a large boar, so I can't argue the logic there! Heh heh.

Hmm, I think I might have to pick up this book.
