New to this spot Wife of undiagnosed ADD/ADHD man

Hi I just found your forums (Hi Mike! LOL). I am married to a man who is yet undiagnosed ADD. We have been married for one and a half years. In all actuality he's a really great guy and we get along wonderfully, except for his job situation, which is just about non-existant.

We were going to marriage counselling but we are switching over to going individually. He and I both want him to get officially evaluated for ADD/ADHD, but I'm not sure where to go. There are a couple places around here that I'm looking into. He just wants meds to 'fix' him and then go on with life.

I'm new as well. I'm married to a diagnosed ADDer. We tried marriage counseling but found that individual therapy worked better for us. When we're each doing well with our own issues, we find that we work better as a couple.

Hi Karen nice to meet you.

I'm having one heck of a time getting in contact with any of our local CHADD people... no one seems to return my calls. *sigh* not fun.

If you want to give me a general location of where you are, I will try to get some information for you. This is for a diagnosis, right?

PM if you do not want your location widely known.
