ADHD in Women
My husband doesn't understand my ADD
I was diagnosed ADD 7 years ago at the age of 40. I’ve been unhappily married almost the entire time being married, 26 yrs, but, we are still together. Yes, we have had separations. We have 6 kids, 4 minors. When I was on meds I filed for divorce, in ‘09, but, didn’t follow through because it couldn’t have worked anyway. I don’t have a paying job these days and can’t leave. So, now I want to try meds again to help with my overwhelming life. He’s against it. He doesn’t understand my ADD. We have always had problems connecting mentally and emotionally. He’s passive and I over communicate, well I use to. I gave that up. It’s no use communicating with someone who always thinks I am wrong. Actually, I think he has it too! I’m here to hear other people who do understand. Hopefully,others have not made a mess of their lives as I have.
