Of course, we ADHDers like everyone else do our best to present ourselves as well-adjusted, minimally baggaged individuals. Before you know you have ADHD, you blame your dating partners who never seem to want to stick around in usually tumultuous relationships with you for very long. Post-diagnosis and armed—or so you think—with meds and coping strategies, often ADHDers continue to wonder why their love relationships continue to end.
We ADHDers know that. ADHD message boards are full of stories from men and women who mourn how hard the disorder can make it to find your way finally into a committed relationship for examples, see here and here. At least not post-diagnosis, anyway. Sometimes it really is us. Post-diagnosis, those times when we truly do have a hand in helping cut short a love relationship, the failure probably has more to do with an inner decision to surrender to that damnable expectation of failure than from our actual symptoms, as annoying as others may find them.
I speak from experience. Before I knew I had ADHD, I blamed them for the tumult and drama of my short-lived relationships…and wondered what was wrong with me for attracting such unavailable men.
