Adult ADHD in Men often enters a relationship carrying a great deal of emotional baggage this is mostly true for men who haven’t been diagnosed until adulthood.

Does your wife often complain that you don’t listen every time she is talking? Does your wife tell you that she feels like she’s dealing with more than one child inside the house? Have your close friends lost patience since you always arrive late?

Your ADHD symptoms might be to blame. This condition often starts in your childhood and develops later on into adulthood. There are a few people who don’t even know that they are suffering from ADHD up until they’re adults. If you are suffering from ADHD, then it must be taking a toll on your relationship.

Learn about the warning signs and what to do about it.

Warning Signs of Adult ADHD in Men

One might say that every individual is different, however, some common problems affect the relationship of men with ADHD. Do these complaints sound familiar to you?

Do you even hear what I am telling you?

If you have ADHD, your loved ones and friends might have a hard time getting your undivided attention which often is the reason they get frustrated with you. On the other hand, it would usually feel like they’re constantly nagging you.

You never do what you say you’re going to do

It usually feels like you’re constantly making promises only to break them. Remember saying to go to your son’s basketball game only to be distracted while later and before you even know it, the game is already over.

People who are suffering from ADHD often forget things they say though they are not being deceitful or lying to you when they say it.

You never pull your weight around here.

Washing the dishes, folding your own clothes, helping out with household chores often seem to be a challenge for people who are suffering from adult ADHD.

You often get told by the people you live with that you just ain’t doing enough, take a moment to yourself to consider that they are right. When was the last time you actually mowed the lawn or took out the trash outside?

Your family members might be tired of doing more than their fair share of household chores just to keep the household presentable.

I can’t believe you purchased that when you know that we can’t afford it!

Constantly fighting over your finances tend to become a problem in a relationship wherein one is suffering from ADHD. The most common ADHD symptom is being overly impulsive, more often than not, you find yourself buying things that you don’t really need. Adult men with this disorder tend to be reckless with their spending habits and usually have a hard time-saving money.

How can you keep on forgetting it?

Do you always feel like being blamed for forgetting something when you know that nobody has told you about it?

Take into consideration the fact that having ADHD might be the root of you forgetting things that people have already told you about. It often creates a huge problem with your relationship especially when your wife has been telling you time and again that you’re always forgetting something.

WHAT TO DO

If you think that you are suffering from adult ADHD, the first thing that you should do is to go to an ADD specialist and consider taking an adult ADHD test to determine if you really are suffering from such a disorder.

If you have been diagnosed with adult ADHD then you can start searching over the internet for free online resources from various organizations like Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) and the National Center on ADHD. These sites would be a great help to you in locating a local adhd specialist and support group wherein you can meet people who are facing the same issues that you are. You can also try to find out how to get assessed for adhd.

YOUR RELATIONSHIP

After being diagnosed with ADHD, you can work with doctors near you to deal with your day to day problems. Adult ADHD symptoms are often treated by a combination of therapies like cognitive behavioural therapy or ADHD medications.

It is important to get your wife involved since they can help in pointing out if the treatment is working for you or not. Aside from that, your partner can become more supportive towards you and could work out into being more understanding. The sooner you get diagnosed, the sooner you both can work towards strengthening your relationship, the better.

Skills training or coaches often help people with ADHD. Skills training would often involve building your skills to help you manage your time more efficiently and get organized. As for how much you’re moving forward with your relationship, most experts would say that every situation is different.
