Frustration ADD Tip o the day 85

Computers are wonderful, aren’t they?  We can do so many things with them that we never could do before we had them.  This blog is just one example.  So I guess we just put up with the fact that they are enormously frustrating, and presumably more so if we have ADD or ADHD.  Yesterday I tried to post the blog on “laugh” (#84)and wound up with it posted six times -how did that happen???   and none of them right.

How can we cope with frustration?  Here are some coping strategies:

1.  talk to someone about it.

2. get some help.

3. take a break.  you are less and less effective the more frustrated you get.

4. laugh.  that’s from yesterday.  just laugh.  laugh again.  etc.

5.  take a walk or do some other exercise a great stress reliever.

there are others, i like these.        


draft 16 is done!  writing is so much easier with computers.   the book will come out late 2011 – Your Life Can Be Better-using strategies for adult ADD

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.
