Yay! I love your post, Brynn. That’s my point. Everyone has issues, but having ADD/ADHD doesn’t make us bad people! We DO care, and we love our partners. I’ve talked to friends who do not have any ADD issues, and they have some pretty big fights, too. Some of them forget things and are late, but don’t have ADD. It just isn’t the end of the world, and so much depends on the individual.

My husband is much more demonstrative, and it’s taken me awhile to learn to reciprocate! I’ll never be like him, but I tell him I love him and I occasionally give him a hug for no reason other than that.

He thinks I’m wonderful. We laugh so hard and we are both supportive of one another! I happen to not be interested in cooking at all, but he loves it, so thank God! 😉
