Driven — Tip o the day 141

One of the worst things about ADD is feeling driven so much of the time, like there is giant fly-wheel inside that won’t stop, that I have so much to do, so much pressure and have to keep going and pushing and can’t relax.  That’s how it was this morning.  I had to stop, sit down, take a deep breath, pray, make a list and remember that no matter how many things I need to do, I can only do one thing at a time.


for those of us coping with ADD or ADHD, the thought, “I have so much to do” is a red flag.  We are in trouble, and need to regroup.

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.
