"My little brother has ADHD,"said a girl at the next table. A bunch of teenagers, about 16, were sitting next to me in Starbucks, where I had gone to wait for an hour. "He's got, like, two personalities. When he takes his medication, he's one brother, and when he goes off it, he's another kid."
"I used to be on Ritalin too," said a boy. "I just went off a year ago. It's kind of a relief but my schoolwork got worse."
"My boyfriend is like, a different person when he takes his Ritalin," said another girl. "It's like, 'Whoa, dude, what's wrong with your eyes?'"
