Couples With One ADHD Partner
How to Respond?
My husband has ADHD. We have been married for 3 years, and I have experienced much of what has been written. His temper, however, takes over and anger sets in over non-issues that will result in him not talking for days. After me reaching out multiple times and being ignored, he will eventually talk about every days things. He never says sorry or admits to anything. I am always to blame no matter if he misreads, says words that cut, or even how I look when I say something. Yet, he turns the situation around on me.
He goes from loving me to telling me he hates me-get divorce. I don’t know what to really believe anymore. We separated for over 1 year, sold our dream home, and are now about to be reconciled to live together again. But after all this work, he seems to be creating fights and controlling the situation.
What words do I say? What ways are best to respond when you have truly made progress and then out of nowhere feel like you get hit by a truck with his words? He knows what he is doing.
