    Elizabeth – it really does hurt us when our partner’s ADHD effects their self esteem which in turns effects everything else.

    I will try to post anything that I see that will help!

    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!

    Natalie,

    Thank you! Knowing my partner is doing their part (taking meds, going to therapy) helps a great deal!

    Hi There!

    Thank you for the articles.

    I want to clarify something. I am in no way saying that the non adhd partner does not have to educate themselves, they absolutely do.

    What I am saying, there needs to be more awareness of how ADHD effects the non ADHD partners, and how to help them.

    Wendy,

    I can only imagine how difficult this must be for you. I know my bf struggled with it all when he was diagnosed at the age of 39.

    I am thankful that my words will help you and your husband.

    Please feel free to reach out anytime.

    Yes I do see it there.

    But how do I create a new topic not pertaining to that particular forum?

    Hi,

    I have the same notice at the bottom of the page, is there a wait period from when we first register on additudemag.com to when we’re allowed to start threads?

    Thanks,
