ADHD Key Points — ADHD Tip O the Day 1000

Just a few of the key ADHD points.  There are so many, so many ways to make our lives better, so that we are managing our ADHD and it’s not in control.Sadly, this is my last post. I want to leave you all with some key points to remember that will be helpful to you.Science:

  1. Science is not perfect, but it’s better than anything else.
  2. Correlation is not causation.
  3. Unproven is not proven not.
  4.  One scientific study does not prove anything.


  1. Your ADHD is not your fault. It is not a weakness or a moral flaw.ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that you were born with.
  2. But you are responsible for educating yourself about ADHD, seeking appropriate help, and learning how to cope.
  3. If it is expensive or promises a cure, avoid it.
  4.  Many professionals do not understand ADHD, and many of them do not know they do not understand.
  5. Everyone deserves a trial of medication, which works for 80% of people with ADHD. If you get any side effects, they can usually be managed; if not, they will go away when you stop it.
  6. Genetic testing to decide on medication and brain imaging to diagnose ADHD are not yet ready for clinical use.
  7. Living Well with ADHD should be coming out in about a year (“should be”).
  8. Your Life Can Be Better.I will occasionally post something about ADHD on my Facebook page,      and probably will post there and here about the new book as it gets ready     I appreciate your comments and support over the years and wish you the best of luck.

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 am very sorry to see you’re leaving. hardly anywhere else I got so much insight and (spiritual) support I could so well relate to, like in your letter – I wish you success and accomplishment in all the things, you are doing – fare thee well. doug…gert

    Hi Doug
    I’m sorry to see you go. I’m now/ still following your Facebook page for laughs and useful insights, but I won’t actively comment, as I’m uncomfortable with Facebook sharing my thoughts on ADHD to everyone who friended me, even those to whom I blocked the view of my regular posts. But please know I’ll forever be thankful and watchful of your next step. 🙂
    Cheers and hugs from across the ocean

    Thank you Doug!
    Your book and blog posts have been so helpful to me over the years! I wish you the best as you move on to the next thing. I recently found out about bullet journaling, invented by another ADDer Ryder Carroll to help him stay organized and figure out what directions he wanted to go in and achieve long term goals. It fits nicely with a lot of the tools I learned from you and builds on them.
    Thank you again for your wonderful blog posts and books!
    All the best, Scott

    Thank you Doug for your superb posts over the years. I have learned a lot – about ADHD in general and about my own ADHD – thanks to you. I’ve loved your memes too – absolutely perfect, every single one of them! Bless you my friend, your work here has been very much appreciated. I am just sorry I couldn’t interact as much as I would have liked (but you know…ADHD and all that…)
    Blessings to you
