I”m not even a year in and it makes me nervous to read these things. I feel like the only time I can get my ADHD-husband to get it that things are bothering me is when I get upset and cry. That’s the only time he takes notice and his response is sometimes to tell me that I’m just finding something to be mad about. I’ve tried to convince him that we should see an ADHD coach together, but money is tight for us right now and his response is that we can’t afford it. I’ve tried to educate myself, so that I know what is his ADHD and what isn’t and so that I can learn strategies that will make it better for me, but it already feels like such a struggle sometimes.
