Re: VERY playful husband/ Lazy or Disorder

my adhd partner likes to 'teach me' fight moves haha which basically amounts to rough play fight and me having to tell him off like hes a naughty child. But if he is physically hurting you then you need to tell him in a firm way - that his behaviour is unnaceptable. as soon as he starts or suggests a play fight firmly reitterate that its not okay!

In regards to cleaning and jobs around the have you tried giving him small tasks to do rather than saying - help me clean. Its such a big task to him. Try can you hoover this room then when thats dine - can you you clean these windows. Be more specific with little jobs at a time

Re: VERY playful husband/ Lazy or Disorder

The play emotion feels good.

When playing does not feel good, is a good indicator that something is not right.


edit: I am wondering how much abusing medication has to do with behavior?

Have you discussed these topics your husband and/or your doctor?

We have been married for 4 years ( 2 separations on my part) and the only reason I have stayed with him for so long is due to seeing steps of improvements. We have been through a lot in our marriage and it is hard for me to give up something that may improve when he is settled. I have been through hell with my husband ( Verbal Abuse and sometimes physical at the beginning of our marriage) but he has passed that stage in his life; showing he can improve with hard work.
Does he break up the medicince so he can take it more frequently but stay at the same overall dosage or does he take more than he is prescribed?
