This is my first post here
Quick background
I've been diagnosed with add/ADHD when I was in elementary school
Never took it seriously. Now my marriage is in jeopardy
My symptoms have driven my wife to the end of her rope. She's no longer the happy person she used to be. There's no love between us just extreme anger and hatred towards my symptoms. What it boils down to is if I do something that she's made clear makes her uncomfortable instead of owning the mistake I instinctively make excuses and justify who I did what I did. I've started reading books, I'm going to therapy and I was prescribed vyvanse but I need it to be effective at home and I take it in the morning at work, otherwise I'll be up all night. So when I get home it's worn off. I think what another issue is is that I haven't truly accepted that I have ADHD. I know I have it. Just looking back at things that have gone on in my life, impulsivity, trouble with the law etc. I think if I really accept that I have it I would do everything in my power to get a grip on this. I have a 2 year old son and cannot picture my life without my wife and him in it. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
