I've been up since 8.30. Done dishwasher x2, washing machine x3, tumble drier x 2, fed the animals, scrubbed the toilets & bathroom floor, hoovered downstairs, wiped down the dining table, done a poop scoop studied for 1.5 hours (understanding ADHD- ironic), been for a run and showered.
Husband got up at 1130 & has spent ALL DAY on the sofa watching cr@p TV. I know if I challenge him he'll do his "this is how I think and organise myself" thing.
Is this really how it's supposed to be when you're married to an ADHD? I mean REALLY?
Do I have to work like a dog all weekend while he sleeps/ slobs. We both work ft so how come he gets all day off, but I can't? It'll be the same tomorrow. It's got to the point where I hate weekends and I absolutely dread retirement.
We are celebrating our silver wedding next year and I have been tempted to divorce more than once but I'm still here.
ftm42, thanks for posting. I feel for you, as I know that life for my husband over the last 29 years has been extremely painful and taxing. I know that you love your husband, because you have been with him for 25 years (amazing!) and you sought out this site.
This is exactly my life every day. Married for only 4 years and in 2019 I insisted he saw the Gp to get a referral as I just knew klhe has adhd. Unfortunately mine doesn’t bother read up about his condition and complains that I always want things my way. Instead of accepting that it’s not my way rather that’s what it means to be an adult and feel and act responsible. Everyday is a constant nonstop for me. I feels like am the only adult in the relationship. I need to change my behaviour abs not fall into the trap of parent child role

Dupautex: Hello, Hope this message finds you well. I want to attend the Adult ADHD Support Group at Costa in Argyll Street on Thursday, but haven't received a reply from this email address: email@example.com. Does anyone know if meetings still take place?...

Rossall: Yes this site is a bit crap but there aren't many alternatives. I'm 51 and started on meds about a month ago (initially Xaggatin XL but now Delmosart). Seem to be working now.

pixiemum: Hi, as a newly diagnosed ADD sufferer at an advanced age, I was looking for a group to discuss, get advice and generally feel accepted. Am a little worried about what I have seen so far on here as there is so much advertising and spam posts.
