Tom’s post


Bonus Rant of the Day:

” – it is clear that the days of the country doctor who meets all of his or her patients’ needs are long gone, and in the modern era, the health care system comprises a large team of various primary care and specialist doctors, as well as an assortment of various other professionals. Although this heath care team is, ideally, all very impressive, in reality it is a mess. There is usually little effective communication between different providers, and the various treatments prescribed occur independently of and, at times, at odds with one another.”

book review by Robert J. Borland MD   Am. Journal of Psychiatry, 3/1/2014

– so true

Not about ADHD ADD exactly but I couldn’t refrain from sharing it.

 My new mantra:

Tom’s post reminds me of my new mantra-“Does it really matter?”   This has been saving me a lot of irritation and frustration.


“We create our own reality!”

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.
