Where do I begin? We dated a little over a year and she was finally diagnosed with ADHD. I pushed her to get checked out. She had all the symptoms. She acted obnoxious, she forgot everything. Her house was a disaster. Finally with Streterra sp? and Prozac she seems to be acting somewhat better. She still has problems with memory however. She forgets important things.
Here's the problem: when I remind her to do things, she usually acts annoyed that I'm reminding her. She's very argumentative and just generally disagreeable to begin with. I don't know how to remind her without her getting defensive. It's annoying. I think being a contrarian and just being disagreeable comes with her adhd. I've thought about breaking up with her because sometimes I feel like I'm dating an obnoxious irresponsible child and it's frustrating. With her general lack of organization, poor time management, bad memory, I worry about getting married. I feel that marriage would be a bad idea. Anyway, does anyone have any advice on how not to take her symptoms so personally? Btw, and I know this is ironic, I was diagnosed with ADHD years ago, but my symptoms are much less severe and are manageable.
Does anyone else feel like no one ever listens to them, like they just aren't interested . I know I talk fast, and sometimes people can't keep up. But seriously it seems like no matter how fast or slow I talk or what I'm talking about no one ever really listens. They listen enough to reply but not really hear what I'm saying. Idk maybe it's just me but it really gets old being there for everyone...
