ADHD AND MARRIAGE

Are these scenes familiar?

* You're moving. You make a list and start packing room by room. Your spouse scrounges some boxes out of the garage and starts throwing things into them at random.
* You and your partner have a big argument. Hours later, you are still hurt and fuming. He traipses back in as if nothing ever happened, all cheerful and ready for romance.

Dr. Rick Fowler, a Christian counselor, has Attention Deficit Disorder. It is a difference in the way the brain handles information. While most people think in a one-thing-at-a-time way, ADD people take in everything at once. Sometimes they overlook the trees because they see the forest. This can be frustrating for a non-ADD partner who doesn't understand the ADD thought process. However, since communication is one area where people with ADD shine, it is well worth learning a few special skills so that you and your ADD spouse can understand each other.
Rick and Jerilyn, his wife of over 36 years, share proven and practical tips for dealing with the sometimes exasperating traits of an ADD partner. Also, they share insights into how they raised their son, Chip, who takes after his ADD father. They show you how to turn those unique ADD qualities into benefits that will lead to a more intimate, satisfying family relationship.
