Remind yourself that a medical diagnosis isn’t a silver bullet cure but more of the first steps down a path. Stay hopeful but do not put too much into a miracle fix. Try some treatments and experiments, hold to what works, try new ones…

It is wonderful that your husband has been trying to help you with university studies. Many spouses wouldn’t get so involved. Be sure to thank him for the effort and share with him that you are trying to follow his advice but other things are getting the way. He may be as frustrated ad you are, but he doesn’t experience the challenges as you are dealing with.

How much is your husband involved in your ADD/ADHD research? Does he know about the kinds of challenges you’re encountering?
