He has clinically diagnosed adult ADD as well as anxiety and depression. 3 months after we got married and moved to a new city he lost his job and was unemployed for over two years. During that time I experienced two miscarriages. He finally found a permanent job when I was almost 6 months pregnant with our now 5yo. With her I was so sick some days I could not even open my eyes with out getting dizy and throwing up. Hubby had to do most every thing during that time. She was born healthy but my recovery was slow and it was months before I felt normal again. I was also in college at this time. Baby girl was just 20 months old when I found out I was pregnant again with her younger sister. While I was pregnant the last time; he became very unsatisfied with his job but was unable to find anything else. My grandma also passed away and my sister lost her first baby to still birth. I failed out of school and the stress of everything sent my blood pressure sky high. I ended up having an unplanned c-section and recovery was even slower than the first time. Our youngest was born healthy but after a few months began having health issues. She almost 3 now and has thankfully out grown most of her issues. We found out our house was full of mold and started having issues with our land lord refusing to fix things. We were both convinced that the poor condition of the house was part of the problem for our youngest but there was nothing we could do about it. We were finally able to move after more than a year of fighting every thing and hubby found a better job, but with no insurance. He went to a psychologist and got medicine for his ADD and depression but is not great at taking it.
THAT IS A LOT OF STRESS!
I was an adult when I was diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. It plays a major factor in nearly everything I do.
If he is so inclined, he is welcome to IM me.
