My boyfriend has ADHD. I am a Psychology student, so this should be easier for me but sometimes it just feels like he's another species.

Medication can truly change your behavior.

I really hate my boyfriend when he’s on his ADHD medicine. He wants to argue and be an ass about everything.

From:
Calhoun, Louisiana, US

He doesn't need to know everything.

I do not want to tell or want my dad to find out my boyfriend has ADHD because he’s so judgmental

St. Paul, Minnesota, US

Bummer.

I feel like the worst girlfriend ever for saying it, but my boyfriend is sooooo much more fun off his ADHD meds. I wish he could function okay without them, but he really can't.

Everyone is unique.

My boyfriend has awful grammar because he has ADHD and vision problems, so he didn't learn to read until he was 10. He's absolutely brilliant. There are different types of intelligence.

It comes with the territory.

My boyfriend rarely listens when I talk. Usually he talks over me or disregards what I’ve said. It’s getting really frustrating. I’ve talked to him about it several times and he says it’s his ADHD.
