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.

    I’m the opposite. I take in and retain information much much more if it’s on screen. Paper books I have to work harder at…

      very interesting, i thought most of us would have the screen problem. I love books, always have, and much prefer them but can read on screen. just havent been able to get my kindle set up with our library yet – after several years.
      do you have nay other thoughts on this? its strange.

    i just found the review for the book that you were talking about and was going to suggest you try something that you already did! leave a comment offering exactly what it was you already offered.

    good job. at some point one has to realize that there’s only so much you can do and it appears as though you’ve done all you could with this particular instance. i wouldn’t sweat it. if you left the review 24 days ago and they still haven’t gotten back to you it means that they got distracted (maybe?) and the ball’s in their court.

    anyway you’re awesome don’t ever change

    Hi Doug,
    Yes, I also have trouble reading from screens. Anything that is longer than I can read in one quick sitting, or anything that I want to make notes on or come back to in the future doesn’t work for me on a screen. That said, I do like audio books for listening to in situations where I can’t read, but have the ability to listen, but I find I miss a lot of the content. This makes listening to the same audio book multiple times a pleasure. I get more out of it each time I listen. I was given a Kindle a few years ago and tried using it, but it never took. I do have piles of books… One more thing to try to deal with, but, if I put the piles in my visual space I eventually read them. If they get put away outside of my visual space they disappear from my consciousness though and often don’t get read.
    All the best, Scott

      I would listen to the audio books in the car or while I’m on the computer doing something else. I keep wanting to do my books as audio but it seems very complicated, and maybe expensive.
      i can’t remember to take my kindle to the library to get them to set it up because i cant get it to work.
      and like you, if i cant see it it doesnt exist.
      as always, thank you for commenting
