Is ADD as prevalent as we think it is?

I know so many kids who claim to be victims of Attention Deficit Disorder that it could be seen as an epidemic.

I consider myself a true millennial, hampered with a serious case of ‘I want it now’ syndrome and guilty of countless cases of impulsive multitasking. But I wouldn’t go so far as to say that I have a behavioral disorder. Rather, I think of myself as a product of my fast-moving environment. Technology is only getting faster and faster, and with that, the way we think will continue to adapt.

What do you think?
