Couples With One ADHD Partner
Manic? or Hyperfocus?
Husband just entering what it appears to me another “episode.” This would be the 4th distinct episode
involving rapid change of plans, grandiose and impractical schemes,and very big outlays of money.
Beasue they have been so distinct (they feel like nightmares to me, and I definitely have PSTD-like reactions. In the past, when I’ve tried to waylay a particularly costly impulse, it has only served to strengthen his position…my reflections to him act his behavior ends in threats of divorce, and complete shutdown of information (secrets). Does this fit hyper focus? Anyone else with similar experiences?
Should I get out of the way and take cover? Is there anything I can/should do as a partner in the ADHD challenge?
THanks in advance.
