Autumnowl, it’s YOUR health that is in question, and with all
due respect to your wife, it’s not up to her if you see a MD
for whatever issues you might be having.

I can not imagine why she might get angry about you going to
get checked out, and possibly begin taking an ADHD medication.

You’re an adult, so if you want to see an MD, then go see an
MD. Her approval is not required. If she gets upset…well,
she’ll get over it.
