: Help! I am worn out dealing with ADD-I try to understand and try to accommodate and compromise-try to
: keep a sense of humor-try to "not sweat the small stuff" but it seems to be all one way. I am tired of job changes and moving-tired of conversations that last for a few seconds before he literally leaves the room-I am tired, just plain tired- any other spouses?
Yes, there are plenty of us like you. I have 2 ADHD/dyslexic children and a ADD husband. I breathe your frustration. My advice. Go with it as much as possible. Throw out your average present day concepts of what life is supposed to be and what is considered normal. Who said so anyway? Learn to capture moments of joy, live in the moment ....learn to laugh at your situation...look at your husband through eyes of love....he doesn't mean to make you feel unhappy! Don't try to live the perfect life...think of it as an adventure. don't forget to take time out for yourself on a daily basis...doing something just for you and nobody else. Find what makes you happy and just do it.
