Quote of the Week

“We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.”

-Marcel Proust

Share Your Journey

I think of my work as a catalyst for couples as they take their own marital journeys.  My opinion being that what my husband and I went through was completely average for couples impacted by ADHD and by laying our learning bare we can hope to speed up that journey for others in a similar position.

But you still have to go through it, with your own discoveries.  And with your own approaches to solving your own issues.  I can suggest, for example, that putting aside some of my fears and baggage about my sex life (admittedly complicated after some affairs) and just deciding to enjoy myself again worked well for me.  I was able to set aside my fears until they could be healed over time by my more positive experiences.  But not everyone will be able to do that…or want to.

I invite you all to share your own experiences, journeys and questions with me and others at our website forum or through contacting me directly.  This is a journey we have all made and you don’t have to make it alone.


Starting April 6th - My Noon Non-ADHD Partner Support Group has availability. 7 sessions. The next sessions after April will begin in the fall of 2020.
