    I was extremely surprised to hear such terrible, outdated advice to the woman seeking guidance for ADD and anxiety during pregnancy, specifically “injest NO drugs during pregnancy.” This is far from the standard guidance, especially as it relates to anxiety— there are many protocols that allow for continued treatment of mental health. This answer, coupled with the dismissive answer of “and pregnancy may lessen ADD anyway!” was actually shocking to me, considering how well measured your writing on mental health has been.
    Shame on you.
