Parminter, you’ve said it so well!! That’s a wonderful description, and thanks for not making it sound like a lot of excuses. The other thing I want to add is that even though we (I’m a woman with ADHD) get frustrated and can be irritable, it does not mean you, morena26, should put up with truly bad behavior. You have a right to expect to be treated with respect, so it’s not okay if you feel you are being abused in any way. The reason I say this is I’m seeing way too many women posting questions about being treated badly by their spouse/boyfriend and using the excuse of ADHD. Reread what Parminter has said, and note that he says nothing about lashing out, being unkind, etc.

Good luck!
