Is there alot of common problems with relationships and ADHD? I am the partner of an ADHD adult and we are on our 5th year and second child and we are starting to have major issues . Is there anybody else having complications with ADHD and significant others?
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!
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?
