I'm trying to navigate and make sense of my 16-year marriage (2 kids - 10yo and 13yo) post my ADHD diagnosis at 39yo. I only recently started medication trials at 42yo.
I'm a Male, married to a wonderful woman, however, with a new perspective on our roller-coaster marriage (after reading a few books on Adult ADHD, including "Adhd Effect on Marriage") I am struggling to see a path through our challenges given our different "modes of operation".
For our, and our kid's mental health, I wonder if separating is the kindest approach.
I'd love to hear from anyone (male or female) who has travelled this journey - whether it be separate, or "stick-it-out" so to speak. My wife is understanding and supportive, but burnt-out and exhausted and does not want to endure more years of the confusion and chaos that comes with "me".
With love, thank you.
