ADHD in Iowa
help marriage on brink of divorce!!!!!
I’m a 40 year old man I was diagnosed with adhd at age 7. My wife and I are separated ( have been for about 5 months now.) the problem that I am having is she don’t want any or give me any physical attention. I love my wife and I want to work things out with her. I struggle with the lack of physical attention. I get upset when she don’t want to have any sort of physical attention. That puts me in a bad predicament because all I do is push her away farther from me. Can anyone give me some advice on managing my frustration? I feel like a worthless jerk. I beat myself up when she rejects me. She is mad at me because we both have put too much focus on sex over the years. I don’t want to fight with her and I believe in my heart that we are soul mates. There is something deep between us and right now she fails to see it because she is upset with me. I know that sex isn’t the most important thing in our marriage. I have made changes but it always come back to sex. for years she always gave into me and now she resents me for her choices.
