"Maybe I could just move and not send him the new keys..." Jerilyn Fowler was at the end of her rope. Her husband, Rick, was spontaneous, funny, creative - but he had "the attention span of a butterfly and the sensitivity of kudzu." Are these scenes familiar? ^ * You're moving. You make a list and start packing room by room. Your spouse scrounges some boxes out of the garage and starts throwing things in them at random.^ * You and your partner have a big argument. Hours later, you are still hurt and fuming. He traipses back in as if nothing ever happened, all cheerful and ready for romance.^Rick Fowler has ADD, Attention Deficit Disorder. ADD is not a disease, and people who have it are in no way "sick." It is a difference - a big difference - in the way the brain handles information. While most people think in a one-thing-at-a-time way, ADD people take in everything at once. Sometimes they overlook the trees because they see the forest. This can be frustrating for a non-ADD partner who doesn't understand the ADD thought process. However, since communication is one area where people with ADD shine, it is well worth learning a few special skills so that you and your ADD spouse can understand each other. In "Honey, Are You Listening?" the Fowlers - married 34 years - share proven and practical tips for dealing with the sometimes exasperating traits of your ADD partner. Focusing on the advantages of living with someone who is "wired" differently, they show you how to turn those unique ADD qualities into benefits, so that you will have a more intimate, satisfying relationship.^
