Does it really matter? — ADD Tip o the day 281

“Is it really important?”  Our grandson is in the hospital, and we were taking a break by going to a movie (Marigold Hotel – great!).  Looked like we were going to be late, and I noticed myself getting all up tight about it, tense, rushed, annoyed.  Caught myself – Michael is in the hospital, and doing well, and we might be late to a movie -so what? Does it really matter?  What is important?

It would be a good strategy to ask those questions often during the day- is this worth getting annoyed or stressed about?  Is this worth doing?  What is important here?


Dr. Davenport recently commented on the strategy of not giving a damn.  clik here

quote of the day:  Expectation is simply premeditated resentment.

ps 6/26 michael is doing great, got out of hospital 6/25 – THAT is important!

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.
