Get a Second Opinion

Throughout human history there have been times when a new disease or disorder was discovered. I know because I have done some research on the subject (see below). For some reason, the new disease then becomes a popular diagnosis among doctors. Let me give you an example.

My child was having trouble sitting still in class. He first started squirming a lot, which then escalated into jumping out of his seat. Then he began running around the room. The teacher and I were both concerned so I took him to the doctor.

The doctor diagnosed him with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyper-Activity Disorder). I was not convinced of the diagnosis, so I took him to get a second opinion. And Im glad I did because it turns out that when the carpenter took a look at him, we discovered that he did not have ADHD at all. He just had termites in his pants.

GET A SECOND OPINION! Dont let the same thing happen to your child as happened to my little Pinocchio.
