ADD & Relationships
I’m a single mom of 3 with ADD who for some reason can’t ever hold a relationship together. I just had a baby 10 weeks ago and the father of the baby and I are not married, but he wants to make it work and for some reason I really don’t have much desire to make it work. I feel extremely overwhelmed by my parenting duties and working and keeping my house in order. The baby’s father is constantly on me about making time for him and I just can’t seem to do it and really don’t have the desire to make time. I love being with my kids more than anything, more than him and he gets so upset, saying he should be first in my life. I just feel stressed over the whole relationship idea and making time for him is so hard for me. We’ve been together on and off for over 2 years and it always falls apart. He says it’s my fault for not making time. He also doesn’t believe ADD is real, which makes it really hard for him to understand how I’m feeling. I’ve never been on medication either, scared of the meds and side effects. Anyone else know where I’m coming from?? I wish I knew why I feel this way.
