ADHD in Women
Spouse not interested to understand ADHD
This would be my first time to post! Hmm - I am in a situation where my husband of 15 years have said he is not interested in understanding ADHD and how it affects our lives. My son, 8 have recently been diagnosed with ADHD, and as a result I discovered I had ADHD!
I never knew I had it for years (I am 44). This has proved to be a journey for me - a positive one!
I am very very sad that my precious husband doesn’t wish to understand or read articles or discuss anything related to ADHD. For me, it is quite important for him to do so in order to provide support for me as well as my son.
I do not know how I should handle it - I have kept telling him how important for me that he show an effort. I have even told him to leave, as I felt that my thoughts or feelings were not validated. It is very hard on me.
Anyway, I am wondering if anyone have experience something like this?
