ADDaboy! the Vlog: ADHD in Motion

March 1, 2010 Douglas Cootey

In this ADHD video, ADDaboy! adult ADHD blogger, Douglas Cootey, provides tips on how to stay focused, a big problem when you’re an adult with ADHD. Take a look.

After two weeks of viral fun, I finally emerge into the sunlight slightly pudgy and pasty, but ready to introduce myself to the world in my first YouTube video. It’s not bad enough to go viral, but gosh! It’s not good.

In this video, you will find genuine ADHD “oooh, shiny!” moments of stupendous mirth. It’s a good thing I’m not going into politics, otherwise the opposition would have plenty of material to pound me with in the polls.

Today’s ADHD Video Question

As an adult with ADHD, what tips can you share with me that help you stay focused?

Douglas, I love your video. When you were talking and got distracted by "a creature" like you said, I got into that too!! I was so hoping that you pointed the camera to the bushes and let me know what was going on. Thanks for the tips. I hope you continue doing more videos!

Thanks, Brendan. I plan on doing a follow-up to my Get Out of My Way blog by showing the Bug Out Bob in use—likely the end of next week.

I love the critter in the bush part...
Your honesty is refreshing. It really helps me feel better about my situation. I love your blogs and it's nice to "meet" you so to speak. Keep it up.

Haha! Thanks. I felt so silly, yet we can’t be ashamed of who we are, right? Love your comments. Keep them up! ;)

Love it! Awesome Vlog. I love the beginning where you say you feel funny everytime someone walks by and sees you talking to a stick. That just made me laugh out loud.
I think you are very brave to attempt a Vlog. When I think of doing something similar myself all that comes up is panic so Good Job! I'll be back for any you post in the future.

Thank you, Christy. Kind words.
I have to admit I have had not too little an amount of apprehension about this. Next one will post in two weeks. Hopefully I can keep your interest. Thanks for commenting.
