I have been with my husband since I was young. I have constant challenges. I was raised in the 50’s and when we met it was his happy, outgoing nature that attracted me. He was a risk taker but always made people laugh. The life and soul of the party. In saying that he always had accidence due to the no fear factor but never appeared to display empathy as he was able to disconnect easily. Does read body language and we have been married for 44 years and there is such a distorted sense of what love is for me and the children (3) but has a great love for them along with his 5 grandchildren. He is still the child among them all. Still sees no fear and has no boundaries. He has worked away in the mines for 37 years and that has been my saving grace as it is my time out from the caous. I love him but it’s differcult to be in love in the true sense as you always feel like the parent not the lover?

Thanks for your comment.
Yes, that feeling of “parent more than partner” is a common one, especially when ADHD symptoms are significant and not treated.
