ADD ADHD and Change of Schedule – – – ADD Tip o the Day 521

I changed my schedule. And Oh, my!

Wake up.

Pills, pills, and more pills.

Kegl exercises (don’t ask).

Quiet time.

Check net.

Breakfast and read paper.

Brush teeth.

And so my day is begun –

Change of schedule

But recently I realized that I feel better if I eat breakfast earlier. But that changed everything, and I’m forgetting to do things, forgetting to brush my teeth, forgetting quiet time, etc.

Forgetting to brush my teeth!?!

Can’t anything be counted on?

I need structure.

See recent post, # 519.


I made out a new schedule and put it on a whiteboard next to my computer. It will eventually become habit and I won’t have to think about it. Thank God.

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.

    Yup – when I change a routine, everything else falls apart and it takes weeks to months to get back in the groove again. Drives me bonkers.
