I'm amazed that Mark Vonnegut, who had a first maniac episode the age of twenty two, is
at this conference - ADHD Consensus Conference, 1998 - stammering about what ADHD without being able to put two sentences together.
He wrote two books about his struggle with bipolarity: "The Eden Express: A Memoir of Insanity" and "Just Like Someone Without Mental Illness Only More So: A Memoir".
From someone who has experienced the nonsense of DSM and its practice being in such a conference surrounded by physician eager to prescribe Ritalin to children is something out of this planet for me.
