When you're a parent with ADHD, it could feel like everything is crashing down around you. When you have a partner with ADHD, it might be difficult to show support. When YOU have ADHD you might feel misunderstood and lost. And sometimes, you aren't even aware that you have ADHD.

I've been in my fair share of negative relationships and dealt with emotional trauma, now I can show you how to navigate your situation in an effective manner. Relationships all start with work that comes from within, in order to better the situation around you. If you are having trouble loving or thinking positive things about yourself, how are you going to handle being with someone who also has feelings to take into consideration? If you can't show up for yourself, you will eventually struggle in your relationships.
I know the above may be difficult to hear, but feeling that way isn't permanent, it is FIXABLE.

The goal isn't to have a perfect relationship, the goal is to truly care, understand, and work as a team.
Try coming up with a team name together, something silly or fun. This can help to keep you grounded in the true meaning of working together and being connected.
