Dear PCE42

Hold to your decision to end your relationship.

You will have exponentially more heartache if you remain in any sort of close relationship to that man.

I am married 25 years to a man with ADHD. I have experience 99% of all you’ve described.

You will become his mother, his psychiatrist and his care-taker. You will become more depressed than you can imagine now. You’ll develop sicknesses in yourself…physical and mental.

I’m sorry to be so blunt..and I realize that you’ve already made your decision…I think you’re just looking for someone to reinforce you and to chat.

Please ask me anything…I hope I can help.
