Hey community, I really really need you all right now. I'm so angry typing this out because I'm about to explode.
What tips/actions do you all take when relentless shit piles up for the non-ADHD person to cope?? I feel surrounded by ADHD and it's not my own doing!!! And I'll admit it, I'm angry and frustrated and at the end of my rope. And the list is so long of what has upset me just TODAY (before 9:30am Dublin time) but I know this community understands. My biggest anger is directed as his lack of ability to just GET UP OUT OF THE BED. Just get up and put one foot in front of the other. I'm tired of celebrating the 'little wins' and having to throw a fucking parade and erect an idol for worship when he does one fucking task when I'm DROWNING over here (and have told him as such) and have to do ALLLLLLL the day in and day out, mundane bullshit that comes from this life.
I didn't chose to be married to someone with ADHD, this is something that came up, what do I do to work through these feelings I have that make me want to actually throw my hands up and throw him out of the house? We've been in this place before, I'm exhasted from all of it. I'm so tired of dealing with his unmanaged ADHD symptoms.
Before, when it's gotten like this, I have turned to podcasts, spending time on my own, trying to push it out my mind and deal with it (cry) later, I read things and try to educate myself but I am finding that my compassion is gone, my empathy has run out. I am just wondering what you all do when there isn't space for you to BE in your marriages? Like what are the practical, tactical things that you do to calm yourself down so it doesn't escalate? (I have read that great blog from Melissa about when the non-ADHDer can't cope, very helpful!)
