Couples With One ADHD Partner
ADD Spouse lying and manipulative
I have been married for four years to my spouse who has ADD.
He lies and manipulates all the time. His logic is he doesn’t want to hurt me. I understand that and can accept that on some level. He also has depression which is linked to his ADD. He is on a variety of medication, welbutrin for depression, addarell for adhd.
He speakes about having a hole inside him, always craving new things. Very recently he started an emotional affair/possibly sexual where he has an ego boost by the constancy or new affections from another woman who is not me.
I am not leaving my husband, I don’t think he is trying to harm me. I want to understand him. Does anyone out there have experience with the issues that I just discussed if so, how did you approach counseling? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
