Are you married to ADHD? I am! And for the first 10 years, before we understood it, life with my husband was really stressful. Okay, so he was fun, smart, and playful — the life of the party. But oh, he was so unreliable, and he could be so irritable! I just didn’t know what to do! I knew I loved him, and that I wanted to make it work, but I didn’t know how.
I stuck with it because I knew that his intention was clear, that he wanted to be a partner to me, and I kept trying to figure out what was going on. When we finally grew to understand the ADHD, and I stopped blaming and started taking action, we learned to work together as a team.
By managing our ADHD (that’s BOTH of us, it turns out!), we’ve been able to create the healthy marriage we both really wanted. It’s been great for us. It’s been a true blessing for our kids! If you want to know more about how to live with and shift a marriage with ADHD, let’s talk. I definitely have some experiences to share 🙂
