Messed Up Again with ADD ADHD– – – ADD Tip o the Day 527


On Friday, I stood up my friend for our monthly breakfast appointment.

I felt badly about that plus I really enjoy our meetings.

At our last meeting, I’d written the next  appointment time in my appointment book, but I’d only written the time, 8:30.

I’ve been looking at that 8:30 Friday for a month, trying to figure out what it was about. Never got it. I do this fairly often, plus when I do write down the information, often I can’t read it later.


New rules – always write down the whole thing and make sure it’s legible.  Double check it  before I close the appointment book.

It’s like I double check that I put the credit card back in my billfold every time I use it. This has become a habit, and it works.

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.

    that would be another mess up again, but I think the one year thinking of is the one where I messed up and put it to early and stopped it? Thanks.
