  1. I agree with so much of this from the non ADHD side. After over a year of trying to catch his attention in and out of the bedroom I feel defeated… I know I shouldn’t take it personal but I do……….. I do hope it can be fixed because I do love him but I don’t have alot of faith. Also with the initiating, after a year of being rejected in everyway possible thats completely terrifying. I thought I did my research and thought medication would be a magic cure. It help gets everything done except the partner….. I just feel completely defeated, numb, and selfish. Maybe i’m not good enough, maybe someone else would be better for him because their more interesting. I’ve never in my life been boring to anyone (i’m a good bit younger) but maybe I met my match. With all of that being said any tips to make me more interesting???
