    I also think it is important to clarify mistakes others make about us. Like, if someone calls you a researcher and you are a PR person, it is proper – and your responsibility – to correct the mistake.

    Melissa Orlov, ADHD Researcher?????

    Is CNN now no better than what....the local shopping rag?

    Melissa Orlov is the marketing minion of a psychiatrist who has ADHD, and she's marketing herself as an expert. Nuff said.

    CNN not only buys that but calls her a RESEARCHER!!!

    What's worse, Orlov doesn't bother to correct the error and instead fields questions about research!!!

    No wonder CNN is losing out to Faux News - they're probably doing a better job than you on the "facts."

    Researchers are studying the structure of ADHD vs. non-ADHD brains using fMRI technology and have seen interesting differences – including later development of the frontal lobes.

    I agree completely that understanding disorders – and loving each other in a way that takes those disorders into account – can bring a family closer together – it has my own, too. But living with undiagnosed ADHD often tears families apart because they don't understand what's happening. That's why it's so important to get a diagnosis and good, full treatment.

    Question for Melissa Orlov – Is more being learned through CAT and MRI research on disorders? Disorders can also bring a family closer as well. It has ours.
