Things Maybe You Don’t Know About Having ADHD — ADHD Tip O the Day 745

What is it like to have ADHD?

Frustrated, distracted, looking for things, dealing with people I’ve offended or annoyed, very concerned about time, enjoying things that are a waste of time, forgetting things, making mistakes, irritated with others and with myself, impatient, jiggling, trying to get traction to start doing something at least, look there’s a squirrel –

Oh, Ok, I could go on, and on, and on, but –

Anyway – I like being interested in so many things even tho it’s a handicap, and being creative, and hyperfocus can be great depending on what it’s on.

Don’t we all wish that people would understand us?

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.

    I’d add “dealing with feeling irritated and triggered by everyone”. I’m going through a ver rough patch. 😦 It was worsened by my vacation and seeing all of what I can’t enjoy more often.

    • Ram – boy, I know what that’s like. Probably caused by stress. sorry about the rough patch, hope it gets better soon. general strategies – try to reduce stress, lower expectations of yourself, like if you had flu. do a little pampering.

        Thank you, I’ve been doing that. But it’s been a couple of months with no significant improvement, although I had 3 weeks (!) inbetween! I’ll keep doing the “heavy-lifting” of not pushing too hard and pampering myself, but just in case, I have an appointment with my shrink for next month. I think my brain might’ve just adjusted itself to the medication I’m on a bit too much.
