A Clean Slate… ADD/ADHD Lessons

In This Issue:

Michele’s Message

Relationships of all kinds take work... and it is important to take care of them because they are such essential parts of our health and happiness.

This month we have an excellent set of articles on managing communication difficulties with our significant other, family, and friends in our lives.

As always, Native Remedies will be right there to help whenever you need us.

Best wishes to your health and happiness,


Finding the Path to Success

While so often ADD/ADHD is an internal struggle, when problems arise with our kids or significant other, we are often reminded that challenges are not self-limiting in nature. In addition, finding the right path and approach to take can sometimes be part of the struggle. Since our relationships greatly influence how we handle ADD/ADHD, it is very important to recognize and confront challenges we face with others, as neglecting issues can be detrimental to our health.

As we now know, ADD/ADHD isn't just for kids. Couples struggling with ADD/ADHD may deal with many challenges beyond typical relationship problems, as symptoms of the disorder may come across as being distant, distracted, or despondent towards a partner. This can in turn lead to sexual and overall relationship dissatisfaction, which can escalate to other health concerns if not addressed.

Along with relationship struggles comes a gender-related issue of controversy, as it has generalized behavior to the point of misdiagnosis, time and time again. Although male children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) display more signs of impulsive behavior versus their female peers, in adulthood, the roles appear to reverse. What's concerning is that adult women with ADHD were found to have high levels of emotional symptoms in combination with cognitive problems associated with ADHD, including depression, limited anger management, excessive tension, and over-reacting to normal stressors.

In addition, regardless of your gender, age, or race, we are all likely to experience stress at some point in life. Perhaps you have a friend or family member struggling to cope with unsettled emotions.

Check out our tips on taming tension through tranquility

So whether you are fostering relationships with your family, friends, or others, don't forget to spend a little time self-nurturing, as well. To be a strong supporter, we first must be able to be in good physical and mental health ourselves!

Trouble Between the Sheets

When ADD/ADHD Interferes with Intimacy

While all relationships require effort to overcome challenges, sometimes barriers to effective communication are beyond a willing partner's control. In cases of relationships between a person with ADD/ADHD and one without, both parties need to exercise even more patience, tolerance and effort to maintain a healthy bond.

Intimacy has no switch that can be flipped on when one partner wishes to become intimate, and usually the setting and situation must feel right and comfortable before both partners can enjoy it.

Couples struggling with ADD/ADHD may deal with many challenges beyond typical relationship problems, such as wandering thoughts during intimate encounters, exhaustion from demands of coping with the disorder, rushing through or avoiding foreplay and affection, or becoming distracted when initial intentions were supposed to be focused on time with one's partner.

Often times, ADD/ADHD sufferers have additional ailments that compound their condition, including depression, anxiety, and sleep disorders. These disorders can then lead to sexual performance anxiety, which can occur in both men and women.

Stamping Out Gender Differences

Women Hit Harder with Adult ADHD

Although male children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) display more signs of impulsive behavior versus their female peers, in adulthood, the roles appear to reverse. Adult women with ADHD were found to have high levels of emotional symptoms in combination with cognitive problems associated with ADHD... including depression, limited anger management, excessive tension, and over-reacting to normal stressors.

As a result, ADHD may be missed when these women report troublesome symptoms to their doctor or healthcare provider, as these other issues may overshadow the underlying cause of symptoms. The results also showed that women had more combined-type ADHD than men, which could explain the increased prevalence of depression, anxiety, and sleep disorders.

These findings were featured in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry after clinical trials conducted by Dr. Frederick W. Reimherr of the University of Utah in Salt Lake City and his colleagues.

Tips to Tame Tension Through Tranquility

Practically any life situation can cause stress. For adults with ADD/ADHD, seemingly small stressors can present themselves as larger than life... creating or adding to existing struggles sometimes present in communication between those with learning and concentration difficulties and others who do not. Since it is not possible to completely eliminate stress, it is important to develop a positive attitude towards life that can help manage stress that occurs.
