Dear Forum Folks,
Hi. This is my first post. I've tried looking for local support groups for ADHD, but have not found anything, and the closest I can locate is AL ANON. My hope to gain knowledge from learning your experiences, individual tics, and so forth in order to better my own life.
I am recently married, about four weeks ago, and my wife and I are having problems. She feels I am not considerate enough.
Four months ago we were involved in a car accident. She suffered a brain injury that has turned our world upside down. She had to leave graduate school, lost her insurance - being a cancer survivor she cannot purchase an individual plan, and we moved up our wedding date to accommodate.
To compensate for the lack of income, I've been working about six or seven days a week and trying to keep the house clean in the meantime.
Her anger comes from my inability to filter. We had a family member over, and I asked them, "What do you think we should get: a dog or a kid?" I thought I was being funny, but she did not take it into consideration.
There are numerous examples like this. I do not want to completely censor myself, but I do not wish to create this drama.
What advice do you have?
Thanks and take care,
