Justin Bieber Has "Self-Claimed" ADD, But Many of You Have Been Diagnosed For Reals
A doctor didn't confirm Justin Bieber has ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), but the singer still feels confident that he suffers from a small dose of it -- especially when it comes to focusing on schoolwork.
"I only have to do three hours [of school] a day, which is good," Biebs said. "I drift off. I definitely drift off. So I'm better one-on-one...I have a small case of ADD...If I don't understand something, and I'm bored, I don't pay attention. So my teacher has to really make it fun for me. Every hour he has to give me a five-to-10-minute break. But after the break I'll be back into it. I'll be good."
ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is becoming more and more common. According to the Centers for Disease Control, one in 10 children in America has been diagnosed. Over 66 percent of those with ADHD are said to take meds to help them concentrate.
Like Justin, many of you also experience symptoms of the disorder. One JSYK reader tweeted, "I have ADHD, and I can explain, but not in 140 characters, it's a lot to explain."
