Hey that’s one thing that my ADHD book never touched on … the cocaine. My partner was a cocaine fiend in his later teenage years and he admits that it went very badly in the end and he was close to being dead and never giving it up. He mentioned the emotional toll it took on his family but now that you mention it I do believe that this hard drug may have impacted is mental capacity or rerouted things completely in a manner such that he cannot function like a regular person. What started off as a simple diagnosis in his mid teenage years may have been completely shifted on the spectrum because of this drug use. This is almost to Eureka moment and another reason why he just had to go. Never touched a drug in my life and I don’t like associating with former addicts who are still displaying the characteristic behaviors of an addict today
