I've seen studies about how frequently ADHD occurs linked to on here before, and things about how its not getting horribly misdiagnosed

Can someone provide me the links?

Someone is being horribly offensive saying over and over how ADHD is all boredom. The first time I ignored it, as I wasn't in a mental state to handle it. Now I want to provide studies. I know people here have links to studies.

International consensus on ADHD:

Is ADHD overdiagnosed?

Forum post - "No scientific basis" - here's the proof (that it is real)

That's all that comes immediately to mind.

ADHD is not all boredom.

Thanks. I started with the consensus and will see what the response is to that.

Do people with ADHD have a lot of boredom often? I wonder if it is similar to the overwhelming boredom that I have in certain situations that I described in my thread on overwhelming boredom. I think that boredom is one of the worst emotions to feel.

I have ADHD and I would say I am very rarely bored. One could even say that part of my problem is that I get too interested in too many different things. I have many projects started that I still enjoy and would like to finish, but I never do. Not because I am bored with them, but because something else grabs my attention. Then, before I can finish that, something else grabs my attention. But it is almost never because I am bored with what I am doing. Even when I have nothing to do, I am rarely bored. My brain is in constant motion.

Does that make sense?
