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 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.

    The article ‘When you care’ that you posted is amazing, Doug. It almost had me in tears: I really liked how it refrained from giving excuses for our behaviours but set them out in a way that some of our nearest and dearest might finally get.

    I’ve shared it on a couple of local ADHD FB pages here in South Devon (SW England) as I know it’ll make a real difference to others, too. Thank you from us all 🙂
