    We discovered our son was dyslexic in 2nd grade and at the same time I realized I was also dyslexic and it was confirmed at the same time as my son. Hearing your pain and the years of stress I put my wife through thinking all my problems were some how related to me being dyslexic and not being ADHD. My wife has lived with my ADHD for over 40 years now and although I have accepted my ADHD making myself take the medication is our problem now. I wish I had an answer for you, because I know it was hard for me to accept I had a problem and my wife wasn’t just nagging me. It’s not normal to have unfinished projects everywhere and forget what you are doing as you go from room to room. I put my wife through hell for many years and didn’t even know it. I remember over 25 years ago when I finally told relatives my doctor said I had ADHD. They all said we could have told you that years ago!!! My advice to your husband and you can show him this letter is to at least get evaluated out of love for your family.

    I have lost count of how many times I have left the water running and come back and water all over the floor. I am always trying to clean it up before my wife sees it. I have even put up signs that say turn off the water. I left the water running in the laundry room sink and it flooded the hall and into the bedroom. That was the worst and my son and daughter in law were visiting and saw how upset I was and jumped in and helped clean up and didn’t make me feel crazy. If I turn away for a moment I will walk away and start doing something in another room. My cellphone and keys disappear constantly disappear. My wife got me a thing that hooks to my keys and will locate both my keys and cellphone. I have had it for 2 years and still haven’t taken the time to sit down and set it up. WHY IS THAT SO DIFFICULT TO DO!!! I was calling my phone to find it and I couldn’t hear it, because it was in the refrigerator. When can’t fi d something I hate when someone ask where did you have it last. If I knew that I wouldn’t be looking. Point of the story is you are not alone in your frustration.
