How to successfully comfort a partner with ADHD?


Advice please! My partner is currently crying about “not being good enough”, worries that we aren’t ever going to get better, and that they feel like they’re losing me. To be brutally honest, they are losing me. They’re not addressing their issues/bad behavior or at least not addressing them to the extent and speed that I need. I have no idea how to comfort them in a way that they’ll understand and be able to get my needs across.

There is no comforting that's basically covering up what you actually need. It's time to say look I'm sorry but I'm going to be brutally honest and hear me out. This is how I feel and if it continues yes things are going to be changing a lot and you probably won't like the outcome. Stick to your feelings and not this persons because " they" aren't meeting your wants and I'm pretty sure it was u who posted about this person staying out at other peoples houses and not trusting this person as it is

Sounds like a good time to write it out. So you can be really clear that you live them and don't want to lose them but YEAH things have got to change. You know how much I like texting or emailing for this kind of conversation.

Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder is a brain disorder characterised by three patterns of behavior; inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Although it is common to meet these behaviors in young children, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder amplifies them. As a result, children or young adults suffering from it may experience social and integrational difficulties in school, university or job.
