ADHD and Science part one— ADHD Tip O the Day 926

There’s a big anti-science movement today, with some people being born knowing all there is to know and not having to study or learn like the rest of us. I’m still a fan of science, as opposed to ignorance, conspiracy theory, gut feelings and unfounded opinion. Science is far from perfect, but it’s the best tool we have.


A lot of ADHD research is being done, but most of it seems to be plowing old ground, finding more information about our brain structures, networks, neurotransmitters, and the underlying genes for ADHD. This is a good thing, but it’s not very exciting.


The new data overwhelmingly shows that our ADHD is real and that our brains are different from vanilla’s. If you think this proof will help you in a discussion with doubters and nonbelievers, let me assure you that it will not.

Personal Note O the Day:

The second edition of Your Life Can Be Better will be published within the next two weeks, hopefully. I’d like to send you a final draft if you would post a review on amazon.com and any other book sites. I’ll notify you when it’s .
Thanking you in advance.

Joke O the Day:


I was at the swimming pool and suddenly I urgently had to pee. So I just peed in the deep end of the pool.

The lifeguard blew his whistle so loud, I nearly fell in.

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.

    Jokes? I like jokes. Since you made an innocent peepee joke, I dare to share one of my favorites:
    Two old ladies meet over a cup of coffee and one of them tells the other “girl, there’s a suppository sticking out of your ear!”. The other lady friend, frowns, takes it out and says “thanks. Now I know where I put my hearing aid.”

    (Now that I think of it: that granny MUST have ADHD 😉 )

    Morning,

    I’m a CEO, small healthcare organization, mostly psychiatric/addiction, Holland.
    Last week I turned 51. And only last year I was diagnosed with ADD. Bought your books. And they were / are helping. Thanks.

    I will gladly review your new book. So it may help others as your books help me.

    (Interestingly, ADHD / ADD seems to be the case with many of our clients.)

    Kind regards,
    André Sluik

      welcome to the tribe. glad the books are helping. thank you for your kind offer. I will send you draft as soon as it’s ready (??????).
      as you probably know, many of us have comorbid disorders that bring us to clinical attention before the ADHD is diagnosed.
      (have been to amsterdam twice — love it.)
      best wishes
