Hi Tom,

Can you please elaborate on how your ADHD demonstrate in your everyday life and your relationship?

For instance I know, it takes a very strong and stable individual to be with me – my gorgeous and amazing husband.

He tells me, he doesn’t know how to handle me at times and I am fully aware of it.

If I had a husband who is emotionally unstable, to be fair, I don’t think we would last long.

Boy, when my depressive mood hits me and it hits hard, I can be quite a handful, to say the least.

As many of you know, when you feel your emotions DEEPLY and INTENSELY, there is no rationalising it.

When you are hurting, you will say or do anything, to make a pain go away.

In a process, your spouse gets caught up right in the middle.

Perhaps it is difficult to differentiate when your ADHD is speaking and when it is really you.

I normally tell my husband I had a BPD moment and it was NOT me speaking with him…
