sonya71 is on a distinguished road
Sonya71 - San Diego, CA.

Hi everyone. My name is Sonya and I live in San Diego, CA. My boyfriend (of 4 years) has ADD (i do not), and I was looking online for support. His 41 years old and I love him to death, but it's been strenuous. His inability to comminicate with me and his emotional distants he has with me is the core of our problems. I hope that someone out there can help me, Us. Thank you..

Hi Sonya ,and welcome to the forum. I am not sure if it is a trait of ADD per say, but I also want the friends and relationships, I just find it hard to communicate my feelings and wants in the right way. I have a problem also, with trusting people,I want to let them into my life I am just afraid to.

I know where you are coming with the frustration of not being able to communicate with your boyfriend. At the moment, I would just say to keep being there for him and supporting him. Also, there is a section in the forums here that talks about books and news on ADD. You might want to look at the forums. Also. at the top of the screen is a link to SEARCH. You may want to put in such words as trust, interpersonal, communication along with ADHD and see what comes up. I think I might do the same search seeing I have a problem in that area. Again, welcome the 2 of you. auntchris
