Hi all, it has taken me 13 very long and frustrating years to get my husband to admit that he’s undiagnosed and untreated ADHD has pushed our marriage to and over the bridge…..
We have now thrown up a rope to attempt to climb back up (watch this space)….
I have finally given him an ultimatum he accepts and seeks diagnosis and help (with me fully behind him) or he has to leave as I can’t take anymore… it has been made even harder as there is also extreme RSD…
I don’t know what our future holds as yet but I have come to the conclusion that the only way to get the message through is to give them direct choices but only 2 and whatever you do stick by what you say no negotiation no going back as I believe it’s the only thing that gets through.
The thing is I need support now as our eldest daughter is extremely demand avoidant and our youngest is ADHD not the best combination!
So it’s accept and ship up or ship out….

Good luck to all. X
