Well, my husband makes comments about my ‘add brain’ and teases me about how I connect things in my mind that don’t really relate to each other…but they do to me…

Because my son also has ADD and autism, we typically think alike so I’m often interpreting why something was or wasn’t done the way he would think it should be done.

He thinks I’m just quirky and forgetful and on and on…and doesn’t see the point in going through everything I do to get treatment…(I am going through the process of getting accommodations at work for my ADHD). He’s supportive, but he doesn’t see how much I struggle at work to stay focused and get things done that aren’t immediate deadlines…he only sees the me at home, not the me under pressure to ‘perform like a monkey’ (my words, not his) so it’s his different perspective I guess…
