Learning About Allergies and Asthma

Hello, my name is Rodney Turner. Welcome to my website about allergies and asthma. As a kid, I could not go through the spring months without suffering from back to back asthma attacks. The asthma attacks usually started when my pollen allergies flared up. As doctors linked these two conditions, I was given medication to better control my attacks and improve my health. On this site, I will explore the link between allergies and asthma, plus talk about the treatments available for both of these conditions. Please feel free to visit my site daily to arm yourself with the knowledge you need to overcome allergies and asthma. Thanks.

What Can You Do If Your Partner Has ADD?

Attention deficit disorder, or ADD, is not a condition that is limited to children. Adults can and have been diagnosed with the condition. ADD can have a special impact on a person's relationship with a spouse or partner. If you suspect that your partner has ADD, here is what you need to know. 

Is It ADD?

Even though you might believe that your partner has ADD, it is possible that another condition is causing his or her symptoms. However, there are symptoms that you can look for that might be helpful in making the case to your partner that he or she needs to be evaluated. Common symptoms of ADD include:

  • Difficulty concentrating 
  • Hyperfocus
  • Impulsiveness
  • Being disorganized
  • Forgetfulness
  • Mood swings
  • Low self-esteem
  • Restlessness

A proper diagnosis of ADD is important to helping your partner deal with his or her condition. Although your partner might be exhibiting ADD symptoms, a definitive diagnosis is needed. A proper evaluation by a professional can also help pinpoint other issues that could be contributing to your partner's problems. 

How Can  You Cope With an ADD Partner?

If you and your partner have been experiencing problems that are directly related to his or her condition, there are steps that can be taken to improve your relationship. 

Even though it is both partners' responsibility to work on the relationship, you have to take into account your partner's symptoms and how it might take time to find a rhythm that works for both of you. 

One of the most important things you can remember is to stay calm. Getting angry or expressing your frustration with your partner can escalate a situation. Since ADD can cause mood swings and other emotional problems, adding anger to the situation can only make it worse. If you need to, walk away from your partner until you are better able to discuss the situation.

A good way to thoroughly explore your emotions is to write in a journal. You can choose to share the journal with your partner when he or she is in a better emotional and mental space, if desired. At its best though, the journal is a chance to express yourself freely about what you are experiencing. 

If you and your partner are not in counseling, consider going. A trained counselor who has experience in helping couples when ADD is involved can help both of you understand each other and develop techniques for working together.
