Answer

I have had ADD most of my life yet I wasn't officially diagnosed with it until about 7 years ago when I started seeing a doctor for depression. I have been married for over 17 years, and have 3 children. My husband is my best friend.

He does get a little annoyed when I space out on him, lose track of what I'm saying in the middle of a conversation or abruptly change the subject altogether. Sometimes, however, he finds it rather amusing. The biggest problems we've had dealing with my ADD is my forgetfulness and my tendency to lose interest in endeavors before I finish them. But he's been very patient and tolerant and has always tried to be supportive.

So, I'd have to say that it is very possible for someone with ADD to maintain a happy, healthy, long term relationship with someone who does not have ADD themselves.

It seems less likely for two people who both have ADD to have any kind of functional relationship.

If you really want to hold onto the relationship you have, just try to be as patient and supportive as possible. And perhaps gently suggest she try to get help for her condition, or encourage her not to give up if she already is being treated without the desired results. Sometimes it can take a long time to find the meds, combination of meds, or a combination of medication and therapy.

It took me about six years to find the right treatment (but I also suffer from severe chronic depression and anxiety.)

Good luck and hang in there.

Answer

I am 21 and would suggest ONLY having relationships with non-ADD people. 2 people with ADD doesn't make a good combination, although it does build an understanding of eachother. Us with ADD need someone with patience, but that can also help to remind us and keep us on track. Good Luck.

Answer

It is very possible my wife and I were to gether for 8 1/2 year before we got married. She doesnt have ADD I had ADD to the worst extrem. However I fell I grew out of it or I just know how to control it. I think you should make that decision on your own apprently some thing is wrong or you would not be asking if you dont think you can handle it get out its up to you but yes it is possible. good luck on making the right choice

Answer

There is no such thing as a normal relationship. :)

Yes, it is possible. It may be a little hard for them to get through to you but its completely normal to be friends with someone who doesn't have ADD

Yes, an Autistic person can have a successful relationship. Sometimes it is harder for Autistic people to find a healthy relationship, and for them to maintain a normal relationship, especially when they are attempting a relationship with a Neurotypical person rather than another Autistic person. Like with anyone else, relationships take effort.

First, you must ask yourself why you are pursuing a relationship with that person. Their behavior is not normal or legal and you may have some emotional issues yourself if you continue to seek any relationship with them. In a normal world you should file a police report and seek a restraining order.First, you must ask yourself why you are pursuing a relationship with that person.

Yes,it is, depending on who the person is.If you are talking about love in a relationship then the answer is no. Yes. What kind of question is that?

Like the other person is an extension of them and their self-esteem. Very often the other person is just arm trophy or used as a pretence to the outside world that they are normal; when they are very not normal.

it is the same as normall bullying. degrading someone or hurting them to be mean or feel some kind of power over them.however in normal bullying the bully is NT in a relationship with the person being bullyed so they do not have the same resources or amo as the person n the relationship.

The normal term is an Imam. The function of the Imam is to lead the prayer, and this person is not held to have any special relationship with God.

Yes, it is perfectly normal. A handicap person shouldn't be categorised because of their physical state because they are normal people. They have the right to be in a relationship as much as anyone else, and your feelings for them should not change because of their disability it shouldn't matter to you, see the person not the disability! Simarlily your age should not matter either as with someone's disability.

it is but its not advisable Of course it is! People with a mental disorder are still people and it is always possible to have a regular relationship with a person. Believing that it's not possible is a serious stigma that people with mental disorders have to deal with, and it can be very damaging.

Leave that person as that person is not mature enough to be in a relationship. If a person falls for peer pressure then they aren't that interested or in love with the person they are with

== No one ever forgets their first relationship. Whether the person is a lesbian, a gay male, a straight person, or a bisexual person, no one forgets their first relationship. Especially if this was your first love and/or first sexual relationship, it may take some time to fully get over it. Even though you are in a relationship with a new person, you probably still think about the other person for a while & this is normal. All people have trouble getting over their first relationship, because it is their first. Years from now, you will still remember & think of that first person from time to time, & it is perfectly natural.
