This is a quote worthy of posting somewhere so you can read it again and again! It seems as if every week I see one or another of my clients, worried about their future (and ignoring the best of what is happening today), make decisions because of their worry that could easily make their future worse!  For example, even though their ADHD partner has had 4 weeks of being on time, they choose to comment about how that partner "rarely" is on time and how hard that is for them.  This discourages, rather than positively reinforces, the spouse who has been trying so hard.

Don't let worry about tomorrow (or the past, for that matter!) sap the strength out of what is happening today!  Focus on the positives and making today better (for example, celebrating the spouse's ability to be on time.)  Not only will today be better, you'll also increase the chances that tomorrow will be better, too.

For those in marriages impacted by ADHD
If you or your spouse has ADHD, please join our forum at www.adhdmarriage.com to ask your questions and learn from others who share your issues.  In addition, you'll find in-depth essays and a terrific recorded in-depth seminar to help you learn how to thrive in a marriage affected by ADHD.
Hope to hear from you there!
