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. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at amazon.com, or smashwords.com (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.

  1. homey – i dont understand it either, but suspect the critics are somehow threatened by the idea that they might not always be able to control all their thoughts and feelings -if it happened to you it could happen to me, but you caused it yourself so i’m safe??
    does that make sense?
    thanks

    That was an excellent article. It made me think, not only about myself, but a family member who has borderline personality disorder. She was previously diagnosed as depressed but recently found out she has bpd and is bi-polar. She doesn’t ever get a pass either and she could definitely use one. Why is it that emotional issues aren’t treated the same way as a physical problem? A physical problem can actually be easier to deal with because you can take medicine, have surgery, etc. and frequently fix it. But the kind of problems my family member has can’t be fixed like that. And she struggles on an hourly basis but doesn’t get the same kind of pass as someone with back pain. I hadn’t thought of it until I read this article. Thanks for sharing.
