I love vacation as much as the next person. I welcome the chance to get away, to spend time in nature or with friends. I know vacation can benefit my overall health. But because of my ADHD, the very task of planning a trip is so overwhelming that I don’t even want to start.  It’s no wonder people with ADHD…
