Couples With One ADHD Partner
Diagnosis Causing Spouse to Rethink Relationship
My spouse was diagnosed with ADHD about 8 months ago and the medication has helped him considerably. He “feels like a different” person and I am extremely happy for him. He has more recently become to “rethink” everything about our relationship including whether or not he should have married me in the first place (he would have been so different if he had been taking medication, maybe he would not have chosen to be with me). We have been together for 16 years so it is very hurtful for me to hear that he is so uncertain about “us”. We are actually really good together and I have been his champion all these years - before and afte diagnosis. Is this a common effect of the “awakening” ADHDers feel once medicated?
