Conversation Stirred by NYTimes Article on ADHD and Marriage
Posted Jul 20 2010 2:44pm
Tara Parker-Pope’s article in the NYTimes today is creating a lot of conversation around ADHD and how it impacts marriage, which is a wonderful thing. But there are a number of people who seem to be responding defensively to the idea and suggesting this is just another way to get people with ADHD drugged up. Far from it – treating ADHD doesn’t necessarily mean medications, though they can help. Also, knowing about ADHD in your relationship doesn’t commit you to doing anything differently – though I’ll almost guarantee that once you do know you’ll BOTH do at least some things differently and be happy you learned about it.
