Couples With One ADHD Partner
He's blaming everything on my ADD!
I’ve been officially diagnosed for 2 years now, and although I hate the way Vyvanse dries out my mouth, it does help my focus greatly. Before and since my diagnosis, my husband blames everything on my ADD. Yes, I am messy, but so is he, and this is no news flash! Today, I asked him to defriend an ex girlfriend that I had asked him to defriend several years ago. She’s married with 2 kids like us, but she was still calling him up until our wedding, and she only” likes” pictures on his Facebook page that I’m not in. He became very defensive when I asked him to defriend her, and started picking my clothes up off the floor and accusing me of being a hoarder, and started yelling at me in front of our kids, so I just left. We’ve been in counseling 5 years, but he usually uses the sessions to point out all of my shortcomings: sex, cleaning, gratitude expressions, and to list every wonderful thing he’s ever done. Plus, our next session is 2 weeks away! Did I mention that I didn’t pick up the clothes because I’m busy working on resumes, cover letters, and a portfolio because I’m trying to find another job? Anyway, I don’t want to raise my girls (16 and 9) in a broken home, but also don’t want to portray our relationship as acceptable either. .. help!
