In our workshops we talk about how Opposites Attract. And so the Impulsive ADDer marries the Compulsive Organizer because they each love what the other is capable of doing. They seem like magic to us. The ADDer thinks, “She’s so calm, organized, thoughful, considerate, good at listening, sensible and strong.” And the Non-ADD spouse looks at their ADDer and thinks, “He’s so spontaneous, outgoing, fun, creative, good at talking, gregarious, involved, ready for anything, energetic, forgiving…”
And then ten years pass… And some of those traits wear a bit thin.
