Couples With One ADHD Partner
Im really confused at times
I become so confused by my husband’s behavior ( has ADD)at times that I second guess myself and feel crazy. When I do confront this issue, my husband tends to have no response leaving nothing resolved and me feeling like I am stressing him out with my emotions, so the end result is me not only feeling confused, but at times feeling guilty. He does not take medication and has recently begun to acknowledge that he has ADD, which is a good thing. I encourage and support him with positive comments as much as I can, but it never seems to be enough for him to see that he doesn’t need to be defensive with me when we need to discuss something and that he also needs to do things to nourish our relationship.
I feel that he expects me to just deal with things when his capacity to deal with anything is very low. Needless to say, my energy is spent and I would greatly appreciate any positive feedback.
