Title: Shame Free ADHD (and Anxiety!): Mindfulness for the Rest of Us
Author: Rebecca Lavine
If you have someone you love with ADHD, ADD and Anxiety this is a must read. My oldest has ADHD and anxiety when I say it is tough going some days it truly is hard to understand where their mind is going. As someone with the same as my oldest I lived with the shame of having untreated ADHD and the shame I felt for not being able to perform at the same level as my siblings left me disappointed.
Shame Free ADHD will be eye opening for those who are unable to understand the reason the person or persons they deal with react and act the way they too.
Words and actions have powers that create lifelong hurt and pain some children and adults are unable to "Grow out of". This will help guide those with ADHD as well as those who work with people with ADHD. It will give readers a way to cope and no longer feeling ashamed.
