Couples Where Both Partners Have ADHD
A Whole Mental Family
Hello. I am needing as much help as possible, but first I’ll give a little background info: I was diagnosed ADHD when I was young, and have been on medication since. They work fine during the day and my doctor even prescribed me a second dosage for the evenings. I am finding that I can relate well to both sides in the articles that talk about one spouse having ADD/ADHD and one not, so it is difficult to put the advice into practice. My fiance was diagnosed when he was younger, but has never managed any of the symptoms; and three of our four children I am sure have it in one form or another. Our present situation is that he is Stay-at-Home-Dad, and I am taking on the challenge of college and a new job (plus trying to be Mom, wife, housekeeper, and new puppy trainer). School year is upon us, and our home is complete chaos. I would definitely appreciate any help in how to handle the regular-ol day-to-day tasks to keep a home running; yes, even just the basic things. Right now it feels like we are just people living in a house, rather than a family in a home. Thanks.
