A new rule —– ADD Tip o the day 66

         I need to carry some medicines with me, so I carry them in a pretty little tin Altoid gum box in my pocket.  Always handy.

         I went to my volunteer job at the pen today.  I remembered to take the money and the pocket knife out of my pocket.  I forgot to change into my tennies, which go thru the metal detector ok, but remembered in the garage so went back and changed.

         When I got into the pen the pills were still in my pocket.  Very bad idea.

        Time for a new rule:  when I get out of the car, check all my pockets before I go into the pen.  That should do it.  Standard ADD coping strategy. 





About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at amazon.com, or smashwords.com (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
