The i phone and ADD: an adventure — ADDTip o the day 275

Kids gave me an i phone for christmas, said I needed it.  I didn’t realize that, thought I was doing fine without it.  Dystechnologica can accompany ADD or ADHD.  Steep learning curve.  Why do half my fotos come out upside down?  How do I get the app that names the star I point it at, and after I have the app, how do I make it work?  How can I get the apps arranged?  And type on those tiny keys????

Now I love it, making progress, got my grandson to teach me how to text.  New problem, kind of addicted, don’t really need to check the e mails and the stock market that often.

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.

  2. that’s great. i think i can get the hang of it, and perhaps then benefit as you do. but of course, i live in terror of losing it. I do see it as a great tool for ADD/ADHD
    thank you for commenting


  3. I LOVE my iPhone! I mean, REALLY, REALLY love it.

    It keeps my world put together… Everything is at my fingertips.

    For my ADD, I can plan things… I can set reminders, alarms, notes, lists, and I’ll never lose them!!!

    BEST ADHD tool in the world!
