Couples With One ADHD Partner
How do I get him to understand...
I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 18 years old… I am now 20 and have recently started a new relationship with someone. The most difficult thing is that he does not understand how the mind of someone with ADHD works. He gets frustrated with me because I interrupt people, or ill say something inappropriate, or because i talk really loud. and also that fact that i’m very impulsive and have trouble filtering things through my mind before I say them. I dont like to blame the fact that I have ADHD but I do. and I dont think that he really gets it. or understands that if i could change these things with the snap of a finger i would. I do not know how to educate him about this, or how to make him understand…. Its really difficult and its causing a lot of tension in our relationship.
If anyone else has experienced this and found ways to overcome it. I would appreciate the advise. Thank You
