Episode 86

Romantic relationships can present tremendous challenges with ADHD in the equation. Romantic relationships produce big, intense signals that can block out other things. This is especially true because of the emotional investment that comes with a romantic relationship and the emotional dysregulation that comes with ADHD.

Shelly and Cam continue their discussion on ‘seeing oneself in the picture’ as they explore romantic relationships. We delve into how developing a healthy, meaningful, complimentary relationship with ADHD in the mix largely lives in Quadrant 2 (important, but not urgent). We also discuss how success is largely connected to the state of one’s primary relationship and the impact that the state of a primary relationship has on the work we do with our clients and advocate for in the podcast.
