Hi everyone. I'm 40 and I was diagnosed a couple years ago but didn't really understand the impact ADHD has had on my life until last spring. Learning more and more everyday about ADHD and reviewing my past and current actions with this new lens has been eye opening to say the least.
One struggle I'm currently grappling with is the interactions with my loved ones and especially my wife. She is also having to wrap her head around my actions and intentions, or lack there of, with this new information too.
Now knowing that when I disengage or disconnect it's not purposeful or that I don't care for or about her, which is the way my disconnection is received, how do I let her know that I do care and love her very much?
Is this something other ADHD'ers struggle with? How do you show and communicate that you do truly care for those you are close to? What do you do to remember to do this when you're struggling? Have you ever had someone in your life never come around to understanding?
Thank you for reading this and sharing?
