I'm confused by your questions. Are you asking wether we know any ADHD men who have an ADHD male partner?

Sorry if I completely misinterpreted it!

Haha, thanks for clearing up the confusion! My brain doesn't work very well at night.

Yeah, of course. I know plenty of other people with ADHD, and probably at least half of them are men. I've never done a formal count, though.

Yes, my daughter's boyfriend has adhd.

Her boyfriend's adult son has adhd.

Her boyfriend's uncle has severe adhd.

(clearly hereditary)

Her boyfriend's step-father has autism.

She has to work with these people each week.

She has mild adhd herself, and anxiety, and depression.

Nope, but I'm sure someone in my family has it and they just don't know.

What is the point of this thread?



I probably know more men with adhd than women. Or at least are prescribed meds.. A few co-workers, 2 of my friends, my step brother, gfs father, and more I could think of I'm sure.

Never met anyone else with ADHD. UK though so probably massively underdiagnosed here compared to the US.

When I told my friends I was seeking a diagnosis through one of my pals realised he probably had it too.

The stupidest thing they could've done is put that H in ADD. I never even considered ADHD because I'm hypoactive if anything.

I have the gut feeling when I meet someone of my own kind.
Especially at work, it is like you just recognise your own kind. Then, I will take some time to confirm he or she might be the case. Then, I will try to tell them that they might be add and give them links and all that. Just a Rain Man trying
to help his own kind
