Couples With One ADHD Partner
How do you do it?
I’m new to this forum, and new to being married to an ADHD spouse who was diagnosed as a child. I’m super rational, a strong ISTJ personality, we are trying to figure out how to live together. But my husband lets his ADHD run his life! He is on Adderall but it doesn’t really do everything we need. He is manic, disorganized, and unfocused. We talk and argue about his attention span, his lack of organization, but our frustrations are just escalating. I am a fixer, but I just don’t know how to help. Can someone tell me how to be supportive rather than critical? I can’t seem to find my way in this!
