Couples With One ADHD Partner
Just found out hubby has ADHD and he doesn't like my son
First of all if you reply please no negative comments as I am already depressed, thanks.
My DH and I have been married only 2 months and it’s been all bad, except for 3 months ago when our son was born. He really changed after we left the hospital. I also have an 18 year old that lives at home. He feels I should give my son a time limit and kick him out because he’s not finding a job fast enough, well I’m not going to just throw my son to the wolves. He also feels my son is manipulating me to end the marriage but he’s not, he just tells me I deserve to be treated with love and respect.
My MIL is in town and I have found out that everything in our relationship was based on his own selfishness and him lying to me. He now is showing an ugly side of him so to the point he had to move out. MIL told me he has ADHD and without meds his temper and anger is the way it is; also his dad was very abusive in all ways possible growing up, as well as he was bullied at school. All this has now come to surface and he has been hurting all of us, so much so that he had an altercation with my son and he went to the prosectors and there’s a hearing coming up. He doesn’t understand why and can’t see what he’s been doing wrong even though EVERYBODY has told him he’s being an a$$.
I am losing my mind as I can’t believe he was so sweet and now so sour. Everyone says leave him but I don’t want to be a single mom again, but I do know I’m a good person that doesn’t deserve all this. He finally got his insurance so he can get the help he needs but I wonder has the damage he’s done been too much to repair. Thanks for listening.
