How does a non ADD partner help her spouse manage his ADD without immense stress on the relationship? We are committed to staying together but add in two preteen sons with ADD as well and it is very challenging to say the least. Strategies for communication, routines, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!

Am looking forward to attending.

For many years my wife complained that my actions proved that “I don’t really care about her”.  I kept trying to tell her that was not true, but it wasn’t until a therapist indicated my issues were ADHD related that things started to make sense.  However, this did not resolve the problems my wife faces every day and the ongoing hurts from years of feeling like my forgetfulness or lack of follow-through was directly related to my level of caring.  Now she just doesn’t know how to feel, and I think resentment is starting to dominate.

On top of that, we have 4 boys ages 9 to newborn.  The oldest definitely has similar issues as myself making life at home even harder.

We need help and I am not capable of fixing myself let alone our relationship.

Suggestion:  A link for an automatic calendar appointment would make life easier and make me more likely to get events like this onto my calendar anyway - now let’s just hope I look at the calendar that day!

I will attend. I’d like strategies on how to help my husband seek help for ADHD. My son was diagnosed several years ago; we’ve since learned that ADHD runs in my husband’s family (various nieces and nephews have been quietly diagnosed over the years). My son and my MD brother both agree with me that my husband has ADHD. However, my husband is in denial. It took him several years to watch “ADHD and Loving It?!” on the DVR… while my son and I could provide several examples of my husband’s behavior for each point, my husband disagreed. Any ideas to help him open his mind to help - not only himself but his family - with this would be greatly appreciated.

I look forward to attending! 

Regarding relationships:
- What are strategies to remove the parent/child relationship and become a partner? 
- How can I restore the intimacy / love that was lost?
- What are strategies to communicate effectively?
- How can I express my emotions in a healthy way? 

As I develop healthy habits for my ADHD, I want to learn techniques to really be a partner to my boyfriend the way he always supported me.

Thank you!!
