A great article about Adult ADHD and Overcoming shame by Dr. Scott Shapiro
Shame can become integral part of a person's struggle with any debilitating illness, especially mental illnesses. A sense of personal and professional inadequacy, dependency on others and a chronic sense of being "broken" or "defective" can take an emotional toll on the person in addition to dealing with the burden of the illness itself. Dr. Shapiro provides valuable insight and guidance on how to address this important issue in patients with ADHD. In my opinion, this wisdom could be applied to other illnesses as well.
