Looking to get some enlightenment. Have noticed patterns in my Husband behaviour and suspect he may have either ADHD, Autism,or both. His tome keeping with everything including work is terrible he's always late even though he rushes around, wakes up earlier he still manages to be late.
He forgets a lot of things and contradicts himself through conversation. (This has caused a lot of arguments as i thought he was lying, but he does seem genuinely confused.)
He has memory problems, trouble focusing on TV or conversation.
Has bad self esteem, and is constantly worried that he's going to do something wrong.
Has a vivid imagination and can make up pictures and stories out of the most random things.
He's socially awkward and hates meeting new people. People he's comfortable with he can sometimes talk over them but it seems to be without realising.
He has OCD about certain things.
With information such as letters, emails etc it takes him a few times of reading carefully to absorb the information.

timharvardsweeting: I was diagnosed aged 45, after a typical ADHD rollercoaster of a life. I am now a psychotherapist and coach working with ADHD adults. I'm also an advocate for ADHD in the workplace- helping companies to undwerstand that ADHD is not to be feared/ fired.
