About

Hi. I’m Augie Doggie and I’d like to be to be your guide. I have been watching my ADHD family for years.  ADHD runs rampant in my family. Checking the family tree, ADHD goes way back. At least from great grandparents though today.

I’ll do my best to provide Tips and Tricks and other tools to help you live with ADHD, hopefully with quite a few laughs along the way.

My goal is to guide you through your parallel universe. I have seen tremendous help for some people with many of the drugs available today. These techniques may help you whether you choose to go the pharmaceutical route or not.

This blog will be nothing with out your input. Your comments and suggestions are vital to making this blog useful to everyone.

  1. I am a “rookie” ADHD coach. I also have ADHD and think my family has had generations of it as well. They would rather drink alcohol than deal with such things though. I see you on ADD Connect a lot and LOVE your website so I thought I would “reach out” to you. You have such a wealth of good information on your website and your sense of humor is wonderful. Just thought I would let you know. Are you going to the ACO conference in Atlanta by chance? Pete Resch

    • Thanks for the kind words of encouragement. It means a lot to me. Funny, I had the ACO Website up on my screen but had not had a chance to check out the conference. I looked it over it looks great. I’ll try to make it.

      Good luck

    • I’m impressed, I must say. Really rrleay do I encounter a blog that’s both educational and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

  2. Found you via Twitter…cool site! Great content and it’s funny too. Love the idea of “the dog” teaching us about ADHD based on years of observation. Keep up the god work! Oh, and follow us back (@adultswithadd)!

  3. I have been told by family and friends that I exhibit symptoms of ADHD. While I have always known that I suffer from some mild lack of attention and daydream continuously, I am not so convinced that this is something requiring a doctor’s consultation. Recently, I was married and my wife has a concern that if we have children, that my lack of attention may place our children in harms way. I am really resistant to medication as a treatment and have concerns that you’re more likely to be placed on one of the hundreds of different anti-depressants, rather than being treated for ADHD and it’s associated symptoms. I have been looking for a local reputable doctor in the Pittsburgh PA area specializing in diagnosing ADHD to lay this concern of my wife to rest. Would anyone on this board be able to do that?

    • Mike,
      You sound very concerned that you may not like a diagnosis and possible treatment plans. Sorry, gumdrops and lolliipops are not my thing. IF you get a diagnosis than there are lots of options for you to follow. None of them great but some are much more effective than others.
      Please go to the learn about ADHD page and go to each of the links. Getting a diagnosis in Pittsburg should be easy but can will self diagnose first.
      ADHD is not a simple disorder and a large percentage of adults are diagnosed with other conditions. If so you need too accept your situation and deal with it. If you had poor eyes that glasses would correct would you say no, I don’t want glasses? Of course not. Do the self test, get a good behavioral history, (parents and siblings will remember) and talk to a doctor.
      Keep comunicating with me and I’ll help talk you through this while giving you lot’s of current info and other places to go.

      There are millions of us going through this and being very succesful in managing our conditions. You will too if you face the reality, accept your condition and do something about it. If not, things don’t get better on their own they just compound and get worse.

      Good luck
      Augie
