Couples With One ADHD Partner
deciding to stay or leave
i have beenin a relationship for 4 years. I see many signs of ADHD in my boyfriend. I have been researching and i am convinced he has it. he has all of the classic symptoms, disorganized, cluttery house, talks incessively, interupts when i talk and easily distracted, can not organize anything, easily frustrated.
I am at my wits end dealing with his angry behaviors. He’ll be calm and then next minute a simple trigger and he is in one of his “tantrums’ rambling on and on and on about things that we have already discussed, angry blurting out things and becomming verbally disrespectful and insulting to me. I understand he is frustrated but i do not deserve to be verbally disrespected. If i interupt he will say things like, “don’t talk back to me and shut up” and the insults will come too.
I am trying to be calm, patient and restrain my self during his tantrum. I will discuss things later even the next day. always trying to “find the right time”
Do i stay or do i go? i am hurt and can’ t deal with his insulting temper.
