Doug Puryear is a psychiatrist with ADD. He lives in Santa Fe, NM (not Santa Fe, Tx), with his wife and dog, and down the street from his 11 year old grandson, Michael. In spite of having ADD, he enjoys guitar, spanish, and writing. His first ADD book, Your Life Can Be Better, tells how using strategies for the various problems of his ADD enables him to function better and makes life much more enjoyable and much less stressful and frustrating. It also makes life easier for his long suffering wife, who uses her own strategies to cope with his ADD symptoms – that’s not discussed much in the book, though. Perhaps she’ll write another book of her own -How to be married to a man with ADD without leaving him or killing him.
This book has been successful in terms of people writing about how it has helped them, and sometimes saying it has changed their lives. And it has sold over 11,000 copies.
He writes ADD Tips of the Day on his blog, at addadultstrategies.wordpress.com. clik
The blog was the source for the new book, Living Daily With ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips o the Day, published August, 2013. It can help you make your life better.
