October is national ADHD Awareness Month. A celebration of Shiny Things and other distractions, diversions and digressions.
My personal brand of Attention Deficit Disorder / Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD / ADHD) has created a massive strain on my marriage over the years. Apparently, finding my cell phone in the microwave, or having to explain things eight times has failed to stoke the fires of romantic love for Rachel. In the book, The ADHD Effect on Marriage: Understand and Rebuild Your Relationship in Six Steps, Melissa Orlov explains how the impulsiveness, distractibility and disorganization can create a severe disconnect in a relationship. This book has assumed a place of honor in our home, and its pages are dogeared.
This year I have finally begun to make some progress in overcoming my jacked up, ADHD brain, and I wanted to share some of my lessons learned with those with the Curse of Shiny Objects. Not coincidentally, my marriage has taken huge strides during that time.
Therefore, I have produced an edu-taining pamphlet offering ten tips for common ADD/ADHD-related relationship challenges. This resource is available at a small fee, but if it helps someone turn the corner and improve their marriage, the investment will be well worth it. As someone who has struggled to find strategies that work, this is the kind of resource I wish I’d had a long time ago.
