Happy Valentine's Day to ADHD Roller Coaster Relationship Riders
It's Valentine's Day on the ADHD Relationships Roller Coaster. Are you celebrating—or crying? I used to dread the occasion. Now I look forward. How did this happen? Let's travel back in time. Back to the “bad old days,” before my husband and I started happily traipsing through the woods singing "I Got You, Babe" (see video at the end of this post). Back when we were getting ferociously whipped around on the ADHD roller coaster—but had just discovered ADHD. By chance. Back when we desperately needed better strategies—fast! The year was 1999, and almost no one was talking about Adult ADHD—much less Adult ADHD relationships. As for Valentine's Day, we were lucky it wasn't the Valentine's Day Massacre.
