Demons and ADHD —  ADHD Tip O the Day 963

Demons are worse for ADHDers. This explains a lot.

 

You don’t believe in demons?  Really?!?! 

 

How about this: 

 

  1. If you fly fish, how about when you lay your fly rod aside for a minute and turn your back and when you turn around the lines are irretrievably snarled? 

 

  1. Who keeps hiding my cell phone and my eyeglasses if not demons? 

 

  1. I need to put a safety pin in my sweats (don’t ask). When I go to take it out, the head is still on the outside but somehow the tail is on the inside and there is no hole. How does that happen? 

 

  1. And in computers? The demons must be Legion.  Don’t even get me started. 

 

  1. Do demons really like to build a collection of single socks or do they take them just to frustrate us? Do they compete to see who can collect the most socks? 

 

Do demons attack everybody equally or are they particularly attracted to people with ADHD because we’re so vulnerable?

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 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.

      Technology is tricky.
      About the socks, I have a magical trick! In my experience, they’re either forgotten inside the washing machine, or the laundry had to be done in more than one batch and they got separated. So I have a drawer where I blindly stuff all single socks that I get in my hands. When I start running out of sock pairs, I open the drawer, take all the socks out, and magically, I have a bunch of pairs of socks in there! Magic!! 🙂

    Don’t get me started on cell phones! I just rode my bike home after nightshift under pouring rain, got home completely wet and jumped in the shower. Then I realized I didn’t have my cell phone. Tried to track my steps. It was surely at work. My garmin watch does have a tracking mode for my cell phone and it said it wasn’t near enough. So I took a bus and a train and almost a mile on on foot (which is why I usually ride my bike and have done with it…) and looked everywhere. The saleswoman helped me look everywhere, even the big garbage bin!! It was not there. I knew it didn’t fall of my bikepack because it’s double folded. On my way back to the train station I suddenly remembered: I had taken my cell phone out as soon as I got home to make a video of water pouring out of my boots. AAAAAAAGH! Why does my mind have to blank like this sometimes? And why does my garmin have to miss connection with my phone at a time like this? 😐 Demons, as you put it.
