I have ADHD. I know a lot about John, but I've always wondered if John had any kind of disorders or medical conditions. a-hard-days-night-john-6

There is a thread called Was John Bipolar? which delves into that, Strawberry.

I saw that, but I'm not talking about that. I thought that topic would more about how he would get very violent sometimes. I'm talking more general things.

I have ADHD, like you, and my personal opinion is that John did too, although that could of course be me projecting myself onto other people. His school record seems to line up with this; he had a lot of trouble focusing and stuff like that. I've also read he was dyslexic.  

"Now and then, though, someone does begin to grow differently. Instead of down, his feet grow up toward the sky. But we do our best to discourage awkward things like that."

"What happens to them?" insisted Milo.

"Oddly enough, they often grow ten times the size of everyone else," said Alec thoughtfully, "and I’ve heard that they walk among the stars."

I think the allegations of dyslexia were dreamed up by Albert Goldman.

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

John was crazy, but most musicians are.

I didn't mean crazy. I meant like what vonbontee and seaglass eyes said. (Thank you by the way.)
