Couples With One ADHD Partner
My husband has adhd and is awesome, but he is very hyper, and is always “running to the store” to get cigarettes and soda, or nickel-and-diming us into near bankruptcy. We are always getting utilities shut off or bank overdrafts, even though on paper, we should be living a lower middle class/middle class lifestyle (about 50k/yr between the two of us?). We make too much money for government assistance, and my husband can be very stubborn and defensive if I make suggestions.
My husband has been taking adderall for the past few months, but I haven’t notice any change in the crazy spending. I don’t know what to do, and am worried for our future and especially my kids’ futures? Therapy might be an option, but we can’t afford that. Can you please help? I have no idea and am constantly stressed and depressed. I know he can’t just “snap out of it”, but we can’t keep living like this. Thank you.
