Is It You, Me, or Adult A.D.D.?
Stopping the Roller Coaster When Someone You Love Has Attention Deficit Disorder
This book is perfect for couples struggling along where one partner undiagnosed with ADHD is in perfect denial. It is full of information; illustrated by real case studies of what effect ADHD has on relationships, finances, children, careers and the non-ADHD partner. Some of the case studies are real horror stories of divorce and violence; some are tales of hope and survival of the fittest.
In part three the sub head is Your Relationship and the Art of Roller Coaster Maintenance’, giving success strategies for stopping the ADHD roller coaster and standing on solid ground or at least installing airbags and shock absorbers. This tells us that much of the information is dealt with both humorously and realistically. The book gives voice to the many non-ADHD partners who struggle with chaotic partners who will often refuse to accept they have a problem. What a relief it must have been to them to be listened to for once. This authoritative guide has many top-notch endorsements already and I’m sure it will take its rightful place in the canon of classic books on ADHD.
