ADD and sleep — Tip o the day 174

I don’t think that sleep is particularly a problem with ADD or ADHD (although it can be if you take the ritalin too late in the day), but if we don’t get adequate sleep it makes our ADD worse.  So it’s  a good idea to pay attention to our sleep and to plan so that we get enough.  This also relates to structure, which helps do that, and to stress, which both interferes with sleep and which independently makes our ADD symptoms flare up all by itself.   More on structure and stress later.


am awaiting the paper  final proof of the book, Your Life Can Be Better.  Maybe today?  Don’t want to anticipate it too much, that could cause stress. 

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.
