Couples With One ADHD Partner
Desperately lost, I guess.
I am having a “fork in the road” moment; whether to stay in this marriage or not.
At the end of the day, I know that I have to make my own decision. As there is no crystal clear, right answer,
I am trying to get all the help and info. to make a major life-decision.
I met my ADHD husband when I was 23 years old.
We’ve been together for 5 years and married for a year. I’ve been feeling like in a hell battle, tortured, heart-broken, and miserable.
Although he is working on his issue, I’m not sure if I can just waste another 5, 10 years feeling disrespected and unsatisfied.
Not only his issue are the big problem itself, I feel that we don’t have much common ground; what we enjoy, how we share the worldview, etc. You probably know how it’s almost impossible to have your spouse “meet you in half-way”. My joy has been non-existent ever since I’vet met him. Even I force him to do my “activities”, I know he is not there with me.
I feel tremendous sympathy for his incapabilities. However I am not sure If I can be miserable like this for the rest of my life. I am young. Is there any fruits at the end of this journey???? He is a great guy who loves me , and trying his best to save our marriage. But at the end of the day, he can’t help himself…
Why is it hard for me to just leave this relationship? When I know that this is not good. :(
It seems to me that a part of reason for this writing is to find me some reason to stay. like some hopeful message?
