A young lady who was recently diagnosed with ADD describes how frustrated she gets with herself when she messes up and recognizes that she is showing an ADD symptom. Usually once we learn the diagnosis we feel much better, because then so much makes sense. But like many of us, she has a tendency to be hard on herself. So the next step is to learn strategies. Then when she spots an ADD behaviour, she can start to apply a strategy, instead of taking it as a cue to be frustrated with herself and to beat up on herself-negative self talk.
Then her life will be better, partly because she will be using strategies for coping and partly because she can stop being down on herself.
