Hi, what a situation. Not too different from my own experience. Have you considered that your husband may also have Borderline Personality disorder? The irresponsible, wanting to be parented behavior sounds just like my ex husband. He was also ADHD, and I am ADHD Inattentive Type. Having ADHD in itself doesn’t make a person childish and irresponsible. Most of us try very hard to achieve, even to our own detriment despite our brains being wired differently.
