Hi David Name is Mark from Montreal. I myself am ADHD and a college professor in specialized education.I`m now practicing as an ADHD certified parent coach.Just writing to say how I can connect with your inner strife at times.I`ve met so many non ADDERS experiencing what you`re going through.Have you done some research in Israel to find a support group for you.There exists also a website called www.meetupgroup.com which I started here in Montreal for ADDERS AND IT`S VERY APPRECIATED.Also I know a former student with whom I studied who was an ADHD coach in Israel, and if you want I can ask her if she could help you find assistance.Take care Mark

Hi! So nice to meet you on here!

As I read your story about yourself, your wife with ADHD and your children, I deeply sympathize for the stress that has overcome your family. I am a 44 year old mother of three kids who are 10, 13 & 17 years old. It seems like only yesterday when my oldest son was first diagnosed with ADHD. His younger years with ADHD were very stressful on me and my husband. When I was in my 30's, I got diagnosed with ADD, which I was very confident that I had. I had two more children and I did breastfeed the last two so I understand, as a female, how this bonding time with babies is probably so important to your wife.

My youngest was diagnosed with ADHD when she was only six years old. Both her and her older brother were also diagnosed with learning disabilities. From the very beginning of the diagnosis, I have always been very resourceful and learning as much as I could about their learning disabilities and ADHD. As a parent, I have always been the one in my marriage to advocate for my kids to make sure that they receive the most appropriate accommodations. I honestly understand the stress that you are experiencing. I know that it is not easy when the home environment is chaotic and disorganized.

Try not to let discouragement pull you down or interfere with your family life. There are many strategies that could be beneficial in helping your wife and family. Possibly a professional ADHD coach could be a positive help for your wife?

As a parent of three children, I can honestly say that life does get much easier as the children become more independent! Hang in there and don't give up hope!

I am glad to know the other side of ADHD. Thanks for sharing about your wife and I might add that there is hope for me after all, meaning there are men out there who will love a woman with ADHD. You are a trooper in my book!
