In full disclosure, I do not know the person who wrote the initial “letter” to the ADHD partner.
I read it & just had to answer it because it resonated with me as I was diagnosed with ADHD about a year & a half after my divorce. Knowing what I know now, I see my past relationship in a new light. There were several similarities between this person’s letter & things my ex used to say. In writing a response, my hope is that it starts discussions in a new way for couples dealing with this. Maybe it will be able to help save a marriage or get a struggling couple to see they need counselling with a professional who really know what they are doing & a few tips that have worked for me in my new relationship that they could start now until they get the help they need 🙂
