I don't know a whole lot about the condition, but I know that it can ruin lives. I think many ADHD sufferers can relate to Percy before he discovers that he is a half-blood, with all the trouble and all the moving schools. I applaud Rick for turning ADHD into a positive trait, turning it into an aide for survival, but thats where he leaves it. In the normal lives of half-bloods, ADHD is rarely memtioned. It doesn't affect the way they live or interact with each other. It only comes out during battle, and I think that that is a little too convenient.

ADHD sufferers often fidget, can't stay in one place or sit still and get distracted easily. Impulsiveness is also a mjor issue, especially for people fighting monsters and gods. I imagine running a camp full of half-bloods would not be as easy as shown in the books.

PS. When are you guys doing the podcast?
