Multitasking — ADD Tip o the Day 373

With ADD or ADHD, we often aren’t aware of what’s happening (tho I’m not sure this is limited to ADD/HD).

There I was, cruising down the highway at 72 mph.  Listening to the radio, squeezing a cork in my free hand to build up my grip, and rehearsing a psalm in my mind.

Suddenly it hit me — “I’m multitasking!!!”

With ADD or ADHD we’re supposed to be extra good at this.  Is it a good thing?  Maybe it would safer to just uni-task at driving?  But on the other hand (please note that this is a very subtle pun here; you’ve been alerted), but on the other hand I’m pretty sure that squeezing the cork helps me to focus better.

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.
