Friends, Partners or Family of Adults with ADD

Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
This is a support group for those of us with close friends, significant others, or family members with adult ADD. Also, people with ADD are also welcome to talk about how ADD affects their relationships.

This is currently an open community. Please join us!

This is a place for sharing your helpful ideas about coping with the complexities of ADD in your friendships and relationships. It is also a place to vent your frustrations. However, be respectful. Abusive or offensive posts will be deleted.

Off-topic posts will also be removed. As moderator, it is up to my discretion to determine what constitutes an offensive or off-topic post. Those who do not follow the rules will be asked to leave, because I want to maintain this as a "safe space."
