I have written on here a while ago discussing my spouses hyperactive ADD, his DX and treatment trying various meds. Well, interestingly enough, through learning about ADD and getting help myself his nurse also notices some symptoms in me, but the innatentive kind. My brother was diagnosed with severe innatentive ADD. She said that I was very high functioning so most would just notice my complaints of depression not the ADD. Anyways, I had been having such a hard time with my spouse with his severe ADD, not sleeping, not being able to walk in the house because it was SO messy, etc. his anger flair ups.
In my life in almost all relationships, I always felt an inner uneasiness that almost pushed me to "get out" of them, to end them. I did the same in the marriage. When times got beyond unbearable I just divorced him, quickly. Anyways, now that we are divorced. I still dont feel divorced. I still feel that I love him and he does as well. I finally have been diagnosted with innatentive ADD and have started tx with adderall a small dosage. To my suprise I feel like a totally different person, I can get so many things done..and my depression has lifted. To the point I only need 1/4 of the depression medication that I was on! But after all this, I realize I may have impulsivly got divorced. It makes me feel sad, I still love my husband and he loves me. We plan on starting over again, and maybe even getting married again someday. My question is this, has anyone else heard of this? I mean does ADD make one impulsive enough in relationships to end them, and even get divorced or married fast?!
