The small voice — ADD Tip o the day 156

I got instructions off the net of how to fix the computer.  They didn’t work.  I had the necessary installation disc in the disc drive.  I have two disc drives.  I thought of putting it in the other one, but since I knew that the one it was in worked that didn’t make any sense.  I thought of unplugging the computer for a while and then trying again, but I didn’t think that would work.  I didn’t really think about these options, they were just in the back of my mind and I ignored them (denial?).  Finally  I had tried everything I could think of, and had spent a lot of time and frustration , and I tried putting the disc in the other drive.  It finally started working a little  and I went  through the complicated instructions and that fixed it!  A miracle.

Those of us coping with ADD or ADHD need to listen to the small voice and not ignore it.


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.
