BF with ADHD-need help
I am 19 years old. My BF is 20. We just had a son on October 28th. My BF was diagnosed with ADHD when he was a child. A few years after being on medication he stopped taking it, well before he even got into high school. His parents didnt believe he really had ADHD. They thought he used ADHD as an excuse when he got into trouble. I believe he has ADHD. He has all the symptoms: very easily distracted, easily frustrated, figidy, problems concentrating at work, talks very fast. He also has problem with abusing drugs. And when he takes drugs he gets violent, and verbally abusive. So, im very scared of him being around the baby. I havent let him come near the baby for a week now, the baby is now 2 and a half weeks old. Even when he isnt on drugs, he tends to be very careless with the baby, hes not gentle with him, hes negligent. Does this have anything to do with ADHD, or should I be worried that there is something else wrong with him ? Im concerned for the safety of my son, and myself also. I hate to keep his son from him, but I feel I have no choice. Are these things signs of ADHD, or something else?
