ADD & Compassion, by Larkin Oates, MA, Integrative Therapist

This is the season for compassion.  How can someone with ADD find compassion for themselves in a season filled with societal traditions that are difficult in the best of times and monumental during the holidays?  One may really want to send holiday cards and yet never accomplish the task.  Friends who visit may be handed letters left unfinished from the 1990's, or some bizarre craft project instead of the well-respected holiday card or invitation for coffee.  Shame and guilt can pursue you like a storm cloud in a cartoon.
