How does derek deal with stiles’ adhd? I love how you write their dynamic and how you handle topics of mental health with sensitivity and realism. I know from living with someone with adhd that even with understanding and love there are moments of frustration on all sides. Just thinking of the dyk universe. Feel free to ignore.
derek thinks stiles is utterly unique anyway, so although he is fully aware that a lot of stiles’ “quirks” are symptoms of his little cocktail of brain stuff, it doesn’t process as, like, an addition to the building. does that make sense? he knows stiles has adhd, but when stiles gets literally pissed off when derek makes him stop doing something and eat, he doesn’t go, “it’s the adhd,” he goes, “it’s stiles and this is what stiles does.” he signed on for everything stiles is and does when he married him. in sickness and in health, for better or for worse, etc etc. occasionally they have to reevaluate where they are re: stuff they can’t handle, which is a side effect of being a person.
