Can a Month Cause ADHD? — ADHD Tip O the Day 846

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 was not the youngest. I was born in March.
    I would like to point out, Doug, that you weren’t diagnosed until a later age. So unless you’re going with the virus and December-pregnancy theory, you can rule the immaturity one out. 🙂
    I was an A-student in elementary school, but the more I learn about ADHD, the more I remember stories that fit the profile. Like when my 1st grade teacher found out that I could read. We had an activity book which consisted of one activity per page. Teacher found me gluing pieces of paper on a tree – which she had not told us to do – and asked how I knew I was supposed to do that. I told her I read what was on the bottom of the page. The thing is: I was done with our activity very quick and got BORED, so I flipped a page and started doing that. :p

    • ram – a great story. i doubt the virus and pregnancy theories but wanted to show that it is too easy to jump to conclusions and there can be other possible explanations.
      thank you as always for commenting.

        Ah! I thougt it was strange, but I did not get that hint from your post – actually my fault. Mental note to self: do not read Doug’s blog in a rush the 5 minutes before you leave for work, just because you thought of it. 😉

              I’m not sure I was aware that you can subscribe – at least in a way that you get e-mails.
              Something went wrong though. I didn’t get your last two updates. I too am sometimes technologically challenged. :p

        • ram – yes, I’ve written about that – skimming instead of reading. but it’s hard for me to change that. may need to come up with a strategy. I know how to do better, but haven’t yet figured out how to get myself to do it.
          thank you for your comments
