Hi! Is anyone else here a spouse of a person with ADD/ADHD? My husband of eight years was diagnosed with ADD four years ago but he refuses to get help. Two months ago, I reached meltdown and separated from him. He won't keep his word. He promises to do things, such as file our 2005 taxes, but he doesn't follow through. I've been pleading with him to do the taxes for two years but he won't do them. I'm thinking of phoning the IRS and explaining the situation to them and just filing the taxes myself. Problem is, the paperwork is with him and he's overseas. But, despite these awful problems, I'm so sad that our relationship is on the rocks. I never thought ADD would be so destructive of what once seemed like a good marriage. Anyone else in the same boat?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
