Ask Dr B about Relationships: My ADHD Makes All Kinds of Relationships Hard - Episode 059

Hey ADDers! If you’re married, living together, dating, have close friends or it’s you and you…these are all different forms of relationships that you are in. And where there are relationships, there are potential challenges and delightful times to be shared.

I look at relationships as kind of a progression. First, there is the relationship you have with yourself. Then there is the relationship you have with one other person, whether that’s a friendship or coupleship or partnership in business. From there, your coupleship or partnership could expand into a family or expansion of a business.

Beyond Cinderella: Living & Loving With An ADHD Partner - Episode 003

Welcome to the third episode of Harness Your ADHD Power, a podcast I created to explore the many facets of adult ADHD life and how we can learn to become unstoppable.

What you say matters.  What you do matters.  Who you are matters.  There's a lot of power in all three of these statements.  Be mindful of your speech to yourSELF and others.  Be mindful of the impact of your actions or lack of them on others.  Be mindful of who you are becoming on the way to where it is that you are going.  

In this episode, I talk about getting past the fairy tales and misinformation to the real challenges and real solutions of life with an ADHD partner.

Thanks for Listening!
