    ADHD for hyperfocusing? Wouldn't someone with ADHD find it extremely difficult (if not impossible) to hyper focus?

    Respect the 2 hour limit folks.. No need to spam anyone. We can move to 1 hour limit after Round 9 again.

    ADHD causes you to hyper focus on particular things (especially that you’re interested in) and not be able to focus at all on other things that may be less interesting (classes, work, etc.).

    Basically ADHD causes your focus to be one extreme or the other.

    nope!! people with ADHD find it nearly impossible to focus on things they don't find interesting, but can hyperfocus like motherf***ers on things they like

    people with ADHD are not necessarily hyperactive, off-the-walls wild either

    it is important to note that ADHD manifests differently in women, so many women go their entire lives being undiagnosed because the DSMs remain biased towards its manifestation in boys

    Also since it was mentioned earlier... OCPD is what most people think OCD is. OCD is actually more just intrusive thoughts that often cause people to behave in strange, repetitive ways. OCPD is when people need particular patterns in their life or they become irrationally angry.

    Back to hockey now, though :laugh:

    @LatvianTwist @Panda Bear - that's really interesting, damn. Had no idea, but that definitely makes sense. I've always had ADHD tendencies and so the above description really ties into me as well. As far as this fantasy draft goes, it's going beyond ridiculous for me, lol. Given that I'm not very far off from 40, I go to the bathroom at least once or twice at night in the middle of my sleep. Recently, I've been making trips to the bathroom with my cell phone to keep tabs on who's drafting who. Perhaps that's my OCD kicking in as well. :-p

    I think too many people are freaking out over their cap. Being between 30-40 million for your first 6 picks is quite normal in my opinion. As the draft progresses into later rounds, the cap hits of players being selected will go down substantially. In the last draft that was completed, most people were finishing at around 73-75 million and they were deliberately taking on bad cap hits/contracts in the end either to increase their depth in the most marginal of ways, or were simply selecting goofs like Lucic and Marc Staal :)shifty: -) for shits and gigs.

    It can usually be self-treated but if you actually think you have it, it can't hurt to discuss it with a doctor or mental health professional.

    Yeah.. My 4th line made 11 million last game with another 5.5 in cap space left. I'm spending way more on my earlier picks this time and we'll see how it goes.

    Probably too early for Yamamoto, but he looked like an absolute stud and I need a strong RW.

    Taking Yamamoto right before Llamamoto should be a crime.

    OCD can even include horrible intrusive thoughts that disgust them, which is why some people with OCD have thoughts on repeat about killing their children or stomping on their dog's head!

    Could always do what I did and get a Ph.D. and plan to literally stay "in school" your entire life.

    Yamamoto completely changed the Oilers season. Small sample size, but he's a stud.
