Plan B — ADD Tip o the day 81

It is good to have a plan B, or maybe its a plan C.  We get anxious about the future. Life is full of uncertainty.  We are often worried about a problem or a decision. So it is good to ask, “What is the worst thing that could happen?” and “How would I deal with it if that happened?”

That is plan C.  For when none of our hopes or expectations work out. Then we are prepared and we are less anxious.  It might be unpleasant but we can deal with it.

Fortunately, it is rare that the worst possible thing actuallyhappens.  But if we are prepared for the worst, we can handle anything that does come up.


If we have ADD or ADHD we need these strategies to cope.  Of course, they can help anyone, ADD or not.  The book is on the 16th draft and should be coming out in September.  The illustrations are in and Juan did a great job.

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, or (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.
