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, 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.

    “One of my ADD ADHD symptoms is that when I try to explain my ADD ADHD to someone I forget what my symptoms are.” I was talking to someone about ADHD the other day and they didn’t know much about it. They asked me what it looked like and I drew a blank. I couldn’t believe it. I live with this every day but I couldn’t come up with a thing. I did eventually come up with a few things but nothing awesome.
