Another ADHD Moment—ADHD Tip O the Day 890

“I can’t find it.” Living with ADHD

My wife asked me to bring her some pistachios from the cupboard. I was happy to do so. But I couldn’t find them. I looked all through the cupboard. I was pretty sure they were in there, but I could not find them. Finally, I realized that they were in my right hand. I had moved the bag of pistachios out of the way so that I could look for the pistachios.

Quote O the Day:

“I’m very good at looking for things; I’m just not good at finding them.”

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.

    This reminds me of the time I was in a frenzy looking for my cell phone. I had gotten home from work and wanted to take a shower and go to bed, but I wanted to locate my cell phone first. Where could it be? (this was before I had a smartwatch that helps me locate it) I was getting frustrated as I was sure I had been browsing the web on it while on the bus on my way home, so it had to be there. As so often in these situations, the background music was becoming more aggravating so I decided to shut it off to help my mind calm down while I looked.

    Wait…. music?

    My cell phone was already in the bathroom playing music for me to jump into the shower with music playing. Imagine how I felt :p
