Give Gazza A Break

Last night's Channel 4 documentary on Paul Gascoigne confirmed what a lot of us in ADD support roles suspected. Whether Paul has been formally diagnosed with ADD is not clear but the psychologist interviewed for the making of "Inside The Mind Of Paul Gascoigne" believes that he suffers from Attention Deficit Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Tourettes Syndrome.

Paul's wonderful football talent and his off pitch lifestyle have been so well documented in the media that I don't feel it's appropriate to go into detail here. Suffice to say that the media and to a certain extent the British public are perhaps guilty of helping this man along the road to despair. Like many people with ADD, Paul's negative behaviour has hit the headlines more than his superb talent on the football field and rather than help and support him, he's been knocked and kicked at every opportunity.

adders.org hopes that Paul now receives the help and support he lacked in the past and looks forward to the day when he can say, "ADD, OCD and Tourettes helped me become one of England's greatest footballers".

So let's give him a break!
