As both an ADD Coach and a woman with Attention Deficit Disorder I am getting more and more frustrated with the show Starting Over. Once again there are current guests in the house with ADD. TJ is officially diagnosed with ADHD and the show has addressed it. They really don’t seem to be very educated or equipped to deal with TJ’s ADHD but they are at least recognizing that it’s a real issue.
Then there’s poor Lisa. This woman has almost no skills and gets so overwhelmed trying to do what seems like easy tasks. She just ends up shutting down and getting even more frustrated with herself. An ADD Coach or a life coach who understands ADD would have recognized this and tried to help Lisa break things down. Instead of this the Coaches and Psychologist on Starting Over just make Lisa feel even worse about not being able to complete assignments.
