ADHD Coping Strategies (gone bad)
Show Notes

Today Rick Webster returns with a topic that I had NEVER thought to talk about before. 

Some of the more maladaptive coping skills that we with ADHD might adopt in an attempt to move through the world. 

On the surface many of these things seem to work. But long-term, most of the strategies aren't very good for us. 

Some*** day there will be a full length article on this. I swear. 

Listen as we talk about:

  • Oppositional behavior (temper tantrums aren't cute anymore)
  • Black/white thinking
  • Planned procrastination to force performance
  • Perfectionism
  • Negative types of self-soothing
