Does parenting a child with ADHD affect your marriage?

Does anyone feel like the stress of dealing with and ADHD child impacts your marriage? After years of daily stress of dealing with my now teen (inattentive with some ODD) as the major caretaker (my husband used to work 65 hour work weeks. Now he travels half the time) my husband thinks that I am the biggest bitch. I must say that I am mentally drained most days and I do tend to snap at him.

sorry to hear that ng24! I don't have kids or a spouse but I do imagine that all parenting is stressful and that any additional challenges would add to that. is there any way you can carve out some time for yourself to de-stress? and is there anything he could do to help that would make you feel more supported? wishing you well.
