    I my goodness, yes yes yes!
    My partner and I have been together for 10 years, and my undiagnosed ADHD has driven us over a cliff many times. In fact, as a last resort in saving our relationship we started reading a book called, "Is It, You, Me or Adult ADD".

    Word for word, in painful detail this book described our life together! It also gave practical advice on how to proceed, together. (: Get the book immediately, and then ask your partner about seeking counseling; it's essential for adults with ADHD!

    good luck, gabriel

    Thanks, Gabrielgew, my husband and I are going through the same thing. I will pick up the book. My husband is dragging his feet about therapy, which I believe is essential to move forward. Any tips for me to get him on board?
