Just Diagnosed With ADHD (Adults)
My husband just diagnosed 5 days ago...is this normal?
Five days ago my husband was finally diagnosed (after years and two misdiagnosis). And he started Ritalin the next day. He is 43 yrs old. Leaving the dr he was pretty upbeat and the next day too. But now he seems kinda withdrawn. Granted, what prompted him making the dr appointment (on his own) was because our marriage (13 yrs) had reached a breaking point and was seriously considering ending it. But after the dr visit and a long talk, I decided to try to wipe the slate clean and move forward from here. And normally he gets over things way quicker than me. But he seems to be the one having a hard time moving forward or maybe on the meds things are finally hitting him and he needs some time?? It’s just very different than what I’m used to. When I ask him how he thinks things are going, he says OK or good. He says he just wants to make sure he isn’t going to hurt me anymore…which I appreciate. I guess we’re just in uncharted territory and I’m getting nervous.
