Dr. Ned Hallowell Launches New Marriage Blog
ADD expert and bestselling author Ned Hallowell dispenses advice on romantic relationships at adhdmarriage.com.
Thursday November 15th - 2:21pm
Adult attention deficit disorder (ADD ADHD) can affect a romantic relationship in many ways. The unpredictability—nothing is routine in a marriage with ADHD—can give rise to playfulness and warmth, and inspire creative ways to stay close. But it can also set off day-to-day squabbles that threaten to overwhelm a relationship, to the point that one or both spouses seriously ponder, “Do I stay or do I go?”
Whether you’re married with ADHD—or to it (or both!)—fellow ADDer Dr. Ned Hallowell offers relationship rescue at adhdmarriage.com. In his new blog, Hallowell dispenses advice on recognizing trouble spots for ADHD couples and on repairing relationships, with practical, proactive solutions. Since the website’s launch, he’s tackled tough topics, such as dealing with anger and resentment (a key issue in ADHD marriages), and choosing your battles, all in a signature style that emphasizes seeing the bright side of any situation.
Hallowell, a bestselling author of more than 10 books, has enlisted an impressive group of guest contributors, including his frequent coauthor, Melissa Orlov. In a recent post, on dividing household cleaning tasks, psychotherapist Terry Matlen suggests, “Be playful. Write down the chores, toss them in a bowl, and pick your chore for the week.”
Read more great tips at adhdmarriage.com, and don’t forget to post your comments and questions for Ned and his team.
