Frustrated

Husband has ADD. Every time we try to complete a project together it quickly escalates due to me not doing what he wants me to do exactly how he wants it. I physically became hurt due to a movement he did and then stated it was because I did not move out of his way. This continued through the entire project. I was going to walk away but that would have made things worse. Is this normal? If so what can I do? He won't let me go to appointments with him.

Re: Frustrated

ADHD or not you need to work on boundaries. You need to decide what you are willing to do and how much of something you want to take, state those boundaries and then hold him to them.
