My husband has ADHD; however, I was also diagnosed with ADD, so I’m sure our experiences are a bit different. Regardless, I understand where you are coming from. He means no harm, and probably feels confused when you get upset. I’m sure it’s very frustrating for you. I’m sorry. =( My suggestion is to go ahead and try counseling! You should never ever be ashamed to try to improve your relationship! It definitely couldn’t hurt. It may take some adjusting from you both, but I’m sure you will be good in the end. =) Good Luck!

From the other end of the spectrum – I have ADHD. I was diagnosed at age 14. It is considered severe. I do not take any medications for it as I react badly to them.

My FH has had to get used to my forgetfullness and my almost total lack of organization. I told him upfront that I have ADHD and so he had always known about it. He is very good about reminding me of important events and truth be told, he cleans up after my clutter most of the time. Luckily I have lab assistants at work who are well aware of my lack of memory and organization and they really do take up the slack.

That being said, I personally do not feel my ADHD is a disability. I believe that not everyone is meant to think in a linear fashion. ADHD people are rarely bored, usually have great imaginations and often make fantastic researchers. It is believed that Albert Einstein, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Edison and Ben Franklin all had ADHD. I managed to get two Masters and a PhD “in spite of it”.
