Re: First time poster seeking comfort/advice/whatever else you can offer

This could be completely off the wall, but take a look at Aspergers in addition to ADD. Actually, my autistic daughter is the only other person in my family who doesn't have ADD, but ADD is often part of autism-spectrum issues.

And, talk, talk talk to work on the issues, and decide what you can and can't live with if you are able to be together all the time. While I've been very happily married to a man with inattentive ADD (and TS) for over 30 years, there are many relationships that have not worked out well. And, yes, a lot of damage can be done to someone whose family doesn't understand any neurological issues they might have. I spent many years convincing my husband that he is a wonderful person who is worthy of being loved for who he is, not despite anything else.

And good luck, however it goes.
