Being positive — ADD Tip o the day 103

Just read a great comment from Lucy, who read tip 101 as self flagellation and over pressuring myself.  As I just wrote in 102, we often don’t see ourself, or what we are doing, or hear what we are saying.  I did not mean to sound negative.  And Lucy is right, we need to focus on the positive, and self flagellation only leads to demoralization and that makes it harder to get anything done.

The positive is that I am going to finish the book- I know how frustrated and down I would be if I didn’t, and I am looking forward to the positive things that will come from it, like helping others who are also struggling to cope with ADD or ADHD.  Therefore I will need to keep typing.  And the positive thing is that by focusing on the delete key for a while, I will be able to stop the repetitive typing error and the FRUSTRATION that comes from making that same mistake and having to correct it over and over and over.

thank you for the comment!



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.
