One issue that I am dealing with in a relationship with an ADHD partner is that he focuses completely on everything that he needs, he wants, he thinks, he feels, his symptoms, his problems, his frustrations, and on and on and on. I am completely worn out and tired of hearing about everything with ‘him’ in the center ~ I can’t get him yet to look at compromise on anything HE wants, etc…. I am working for the day when it isn’t all about him but I am allowed an emotion, need and frustration too. Couples counseling I hope will finally balance out the relationship ~ I give patience, but he blows up at me for the slightest ‘infraction’, I give understanding, yet there doesn’t seem to be any thought to my side, I give support, but receive none. Please, ADD’ers, make sure that you are giving to your partners as well as taking.
