Re: To wives of us ADHD husbands: how can we make you happy?

Leo:
Your wife has ADHD. Then she should now some of the traits of the disorder, one of which is not being able to keep a steady job.

I'm getting more and more convinced that you do in fact have ADHD.

Re: To wives of us ADHD husbands: how can we make you happy?

Flia - LeoJ said he was the one with ADHD - and he was asking how to make sure his wife was happy despite the struggles of being married to someone with it.

Leo - are you on medication?

I understand how difficult it can be to keep a job with ADHD - and I also know that many women in general need emotional and financial security for their happiness. Not wealth, but being free from daily worry about paying the bills.

Kudos to you for even asking the question! I thank God every day for my husband - he is sooo much more understanding of my ADD than I would be if the situation were reversed.
