Freddie Mercury and ADHD?,

What is your opinion on Freddie having ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). On a dutch side about ADHD they suspect Freddie of having ADHD during his life but he never was diagnosed.

What's your opinion on this subject and is there any proof? (besides the fact that he went mad on stage and was bored very easily)

It's a load of crap, as per usual. Anyone who knows anything about Freddie Mercury can tell you that he was extremely quiet and relaxed off-stage. The stage antics were part of the performance. An act. Anyone referring to that as ADHD (which itself is a fashion disease. The real thing is far more rare than the amount of kids diagnosed with it; nowadays, any child that is a little on the busy side is called "ADHD" so that they can feed the poor kid medication) needs to get his/her head examined.

Yes, he had all kinds of afflictions, including dsypraxia. That's why Bo Rap was originally called Bolivian Raspberry, WATC was We Are The Champagne, GOFL was God old Freddie's Liver's Bad. And much more besides, but I dont have time to list them all, and besides, no one will believe me.

I agree with you, that a lot of kids get diagnosed with ADHD these days and yes they all get medication for it. It's indeed something people should be aware of. In Freddie's case, indeed he was quiet and very private off stage he didn't get or took any medication for ADHD and in those days busy people and kids didn't got diagnosed with ADHD because they didn't invented the desease yet  (he only took recreational cocaine).

I think the farmaceutical industry has a lot to do with all of this!!?

i wondered if he had a form of it actually- i heard somewhere that he had a hard time relaxing at all, which is why he was always so busy.

nothing wrong with it!

but i agree with caspar about this ridiculous 'pill popping' society as an 'easy way' to calm a busy child. if anything, it shoudl be embraced. those who truly have ADHD are hard to handle even if medicated, but since its so overdiagnosed its impossible to 'tell' anymore.

I doubt it.  He was hyper, but that doesn't mean he had ADHD.  I know lots of hyper people who don't have ADHD.  ADHD means you cant pay attention, or sit still.  He could pay attention to things, and he could sit still if he wanted to.  That is such a lie it's not even funny.[img=/images/smiley/msn/cry_smile.gif][/img]

Ah, I think Freddie had severe ADD... he had a lot of symptoms of it. And you don't have to be hyper-active to have ADD.

Do you guys think that maybe Freddie is just not taking his medication?  Someone should remind him.
