Hi, I’m 37 years old, married since 2008, and we have a 7 year old daughter. I recently noticed some attention and impulsivity issues with my daughter, and suggested to my husband that we get her tested. I had realized shortly before this that I probably had adhd and my husband said that I self diagnosed so my opinion on this was moot.
In order to encourage him to get her tested, I went after my own diagnosis to prove to him that I wasn’t just making it up. I got diagnosed in May with combined type.
He still refuses to get her tested and thinks that I’m “Projecting my diagnosis” onto her. She behaves just like I did as a child in class and seems to be suffering from the same issues and I can’t convince him to at least get her tested. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to convince him?
