Does anyone out there have a husband or boyfriend that has ADHD?

My boyfriend has it...BIG TIME. I'm trying very hard to be understanding, but sometimes it gets to be too much to handle. He currently lives with his mom (it's just easier for him because she helps him a lot), but he wants us to move in together. I'm not sure if I'm ready to take on his illness. I love him dearly, but I'm a professional in the area of ADHD.

How do YOU cope?

  • My husband has ADD and my son has ADHD. I handle it one day at a time (and sometimes one hour at a time!).

  • Oh my GOD yes. My DH is on Concerta, it helps a lot. He also exercises 1-2 hours 6 days a week. It really helps with bringing his energy level down. Before he was on Concerta he self-medicated with caffeine... he would drink 1-2 pots of coffee a day.

  • yes, thankfully he can control a lot of the issues on his own but the stuff he can't he talks to a therapist or me. Its a one day at a time thing.
