Marriage and ADHD, by Rod Dreher (and more on ADHD)

“This mystery is a profound one, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the Church.” (St. Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians 5:12)

Rod Dreher wrote this “Hi, honey, I’m ADHD” on Beliefnet, July 20, 2010. A spouse with ADHD is hard to live with, he admits. In the post he hints that he himself has this disability. And there are 18 comments at the end of the post. http://blog.beliefnet.com/roddreher/2010/07/hi-honey-im-adhd.html

At the beginning of Rod’s Post, in blue, is Attention-deficit disorders can take a big toll on marriage. Click on this for a longer article by Tara Parker-Pope in The New York Times “Well” Section, July 19, 2010, which is the resource Rod Dreher is commenting on. Or click on the following:

(And though, there is no current diagnosis, yours truly shows  signs of it, too. Bought a book that paints a familiar picture:

Adult ADD: A Reader-Friendly Guide to Identifying, Understanding, and Treating Adult Attention Deficit Disorder, by Thomas A Whiteman, PhD & Michele Novitni, PhD, Pinon Press, 1995.)

Here’s a site from Science Reference Services with a long list of resources on ADHD, including the book mentioned above : http://www.loc.gov/rr/scitech/tracer-bullets/adhdtb.html
