I wish my husband knew how HARD it is for me to have so many responsibilities and have ADHD. I am a teacher (an organizational challenge as it is), I’m responsible for ALL the housework – cooking, dishes, laundry, grocery shopping, trash, and housecleaning – and I’m also the “caretaker” of the dog and cat. I am constantly cleaning up after him; he leaves dirty laundry on the bathroom counter and he is always leaving his dirty dishes in the sink, despite repeated requests for him to put the dishes in the dishwasher. And I’m always being asked to do MORE instead of less. If I ask him to do something, it’s always put off or he “doesn’t have time,” not even for things that only require five minutes of his time. I’m secretly resentful and angry at him because I feel like he should be an adult and a partner, not a child. I have tried to explain how overwhelmed and stressed out I am. I have tried to defer some commitments to summer when I am not in school, but I’m always pushed into them anyway. My husband is not the one with ADHD, but given some observations of his behaviors, I’m beginning to wonder. I am at a loss for how I can get him to contribute without bringing about the apocalypse just for asking.
