Couples With One ADHD Partner
Impulsive/Compulsive buying tips?
Does anyone have any suggestions or trying to curb the impulsive/compulsive (don’t know which term is more accurate) buying that accompanies ADHD? In the last three months my husband has wanted to buy a new computer, iPod, XBOX, smartphone, car parts, home decor, etc. and I feel bad every time I have to say “no”. We are not in a financial situation where we can afford much (I’m sick and we’re both in couples counseling) and, even when he gets what he wants, a few months later he wants another one. Do meds help with this? I appreciate that he at least consults with me but I think it’s just a formality because he eventually still wants what he wants. Any suggestions?
