Attention deficit disorder provides a cute acronym* that is easy to remember. ADD looks positive–unlike its actual intention, which is negative, victimizing, and debilitating. ADD subtracts. It adds nothing to anyone.
Lack of focus is a natural result of disinterest, mindless labor, nutritional deficits, or preoccupation with thoughts.
- Disinterest has many sources. Its appearance is especially apparent in school.
- Mindless labor occurs in abundance. It’s in school, work, and daily drudgery.
- Nutritional deficits impact focus by challenging brain function, digestive integrity, and cellular development. Nutritional deficits have many sources: over-consumption of sugar or sugar substitutes, sensitivity to food substances, insufficient intake of nutrients, chemically altered foodstuff, and water insufficiency (amount or quality).
- Preoccupation with thoughts assaults focus from many directions. Internally disruptive thoughts or externally caused mental processing equally strain focus.
Externally caused distractions are multi-directional: criticism from loved ones or authority figures; disturbing world or local events; drama in the immediate area; emotional feelings about others—happy or sad; traumatic experiences at the mercy of unknown or known people; exposure to information that is disturbing through social media, entertainment, or people; loss; and many others.
Internally disruptive thoughts are multi-faceted, ranging from criticism based on criticism from others or self-imposed to turmoil from natural aging.
Lack of focus is natural. It doesn’t require a label or medication.
Attention deficit disorder ADD  It’s a name with no substance, a name with no social purpose. ADD is negative, victimizing, and debilitating. It adds nothing to anyone. ADD subtracts.

* ADD is an initialism, because the letters are pronounced individually. I used the word acronym, because initialism is not well known.
