Most everything seems to work in feedback loops. If we get depressed, we don’t feel like doing anything. If we don’t do things we get more depressed, which makes it harder to do things, which makes us more depressed.
If we are coping with ADD or ADHD we have trouble getting things done (see previous posts). This lowers our morale, which makes it harder to do things, which lowers —.
We need to use strategies to break these cycles, to interrupt the feedback loops. And of course its best if we use strategies to keep the loop from getting started in the first place.
