ADHD & MARRIAGE

Watch what you say and how you say it. I plan, organize, manage and initiate so many things around the house that I don't feel like I should have to do that too. I would move overseas because of her not a really big deal. He was obsessed with me, wanted to see me everyday, almost felt like I was the only thing he sees. He is bitter about his job failures and yet will not consider the advice he receives on how to improve the situation. Have a weekly meeting at a predetermined time to discuss the workload and rebalance the tasks if one of you is feeling overwhelmed.

I am sorry you are furious, but know exactly what that is. Your increasing frustration, anger and demands only further damage any chances of communication or intimacy, as your partner feels that he can never please you and that he is not enough. Orlov likens optimal to a three-legged stool. Having to hear him say all this is just heartbreaking for him as I am so far away from him and I know he is trying his best to cope. You can see how this might be a lost cause! Move on and grow from this and focus on urself and better yourself and be happy.

How ADHD Affects Relationships And What You Can Do

I liked the end of the article reminding me to have compassion about his thinking processes. Second, have you talked with a sex counselor about this? Is my request for him to stay home at night an unreasonable request? To improve communication, do what you can to defuse emotional volatility. He rarely shows affection and never compliments. Inattention can also lead to mindlessly agreeing to things that you later forget. He is the one to follow up behind me to make sure things are getting done, phone calls made, appointments scheduled, kids getting baths enough, and so on. I don't know why I cant compliment, initiate physical relationship or make the changes i need to make but it is wearing him down. Then you begin to lose focus on the marriage and there is no family or structural support.

I have known my husband for 25 years. While I can understand what you're saying, you do not know what it is like to live with someone who does not have the disorder or the perspective from over here.

The main issue for me is his lack of intimacy and emotional neglect for lack of empathy in which i recieve no comfort or affirmtion. If I got a good pounding occasionally, maybe I wouldn't be such a demanding, whiny, contemptuous bitch all the time.
