An ADHD Melange

I hope you’re reading the comments; they are often better than the post. They make my day, inform me,  and encourage me to keep posting.  I love the comments.

Observation O the Day:

Some days just come unraveled.

Conversation O the Day:

Q: How ever did you manage to drop your phone into the toilet?

A: Well, it requires a certain amount of skill and a good bit of luck.

Quote O the Day:

I’m so far behind that I’m about to catch up with myself and it could look like I’m ahead.

Definition O the Day:


a mixture; a medley:

“a melange of tender vegetables and herbs”


mixture · medley · blend · variety · mixed bag · mix · miscellany · diversity · collection · selection · assortment · assemblage · combination · motley collection · pot-pourri · conglomeration · jumble · mess · confusion · mishmash · 

Book Note O the Day:

I just signed up to get a professional cover.  This was way premature but I was concerned and eager and have no patience.  I’m excitedly waiting to see it.  The new working title is Managing ADHD.  Do you like this or is Managing Your ADHD better or do you have another suggestion?  Comments will be most appreciated.

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 comment is about my experience with ADHD, not really about your book, and yet I cannot resist!
    and to copy the title of a reddit group:

    An Attempt was Made to Manage my ADHD.

    Insert funny/tragic, or other, picture here.

    Just my little opinion, I like “Managing Your ADHD”. It feels more personal.
    As always your emails bring smiles to me. Thank you so much.

    Here is todays laugh for you: It started in the laundry, I needed a hanger for a wet skirt to hang dry. So I headed to the bedroom, but on the way I needed a drink of water, then saw the stack of uplifting note cards I want to tape to my bathroom mirror so I head to the back of the house to find tape. As I pass the bedroom I saw the blinds were open and the sun was hot – need to close those, then I notice the bed didn’t get made yet. Make the bed. As I notice I’m hot and need to change clothes I suddenly – in the midst of changing- realize I forgot to clean the kitty litter today. So I go to get the little bag and scoop (still in the midst of changing don’t forget) but I see the skirt hanger on the floor of my closet which reminds me – I set out 20 minutes ago to get a hanger to hang up the wet skirt, that is still laying across the washer, waiting to be hung up.
    My husband came to help and ask what all I needed. After relaying all this, I was laying sideways on the bed laughing so hard and he said first thing’s first “get dressed then go finish your lunch!” Oh yeah! I forgot that.
