Happy ADD ADHD Thanksgiving – – – ADD Tip O the Day 563

Challenging Occasions

Thanksgiving can be particularly challenging for those of us with ADD ADHD                  (but then, so can any day).


Adjust as fits if you are the host/hostess or if you are a guest.           Check all that apply

1. Didn’t burn the turkey nor serve it still partly frozen.

2. Didn’t spill all the gravy on the rug.

3. While “helping” with the dishes, didn’t break more than one.

4. Didn’t inadvertently insult the host or hostess or a distinguished guest.

5. Didn’t drink way too much, or if you did, did not barf in a conspicuous place or require much help to get to your bed or car.

6. Didn’t tell  more than one grossly inappropriate joke or sing more than one unrequested song.

7. Your significant other has not requested a separation or divorce – yet.

8. miscellaneous – you did not break any furniture, get into any fistfights,  set fire to anything, pull the tablecloth and dishes off the table, arrive more than one hour late or at the wrong house or give erroneous directions to incoming guests.

Test results

If you scored four or more checks, congratulate yourself – you successfully got through another  Thanksgiving (successfully for someone with ADD ADHD).

Happy Thanksgiving!


We are especially thankful that we are moved into our new digs. Hallelujah!

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 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. Glad the move is over. I know you were REALLY looking forward to it. Not. It’s nice once it’s over, though!
