I have the same issues. My kid has ADHD combined, too. I am pretty sure that I have the hyperactive ADHD and my husband has the inattentive. (I was never officially diagnosed, but my family says that our children are “active” and busy and can’t sit still and that it is normal behavior for most of the kids in our family.) I’ve found ways to cope, but that means, often, having a quiet and orderly house, which is impossible with more than one person living in a house.

I constantly have to remind myself that my kid is not doing this on purpose and I do a lot of walking away. I also realize that I have less patience when I am stressed, tired, or both.
