askfrosky, the effects of ADHD on the non-ADHD partner is so overlooked that it leads to our own health and well being at risk. I’m not sure if you had a chance to read my first post, but in there I mentioned how there are very very few articles out there that would help the ADHD partner to understand what the non-adhd partner goes through. I feel like everything written is for the Non-ADHD partner to just “understand”, which really puts a lot of pressure on us. I’m hoping to change that by providing insight of what the non-adhd partners actually go through.

I’m sorry you had to end your marriage because of this.

I understand what you mean by having God in your relationship, it is very important to turn to faith first, and through that faith comes guidance. But because you put your faith first, you were able to be strong for your daughter!!

I wish you the best of luck! And am proud of your strength!
