Do you and your spouse fight about the same things over and over? Dr. Phil's guests have threatened divorce and want to know if there's a solution for their constant battles. Deanna and her husband, Jason, argue often and engage in big blowouts that they say are destroying their marriage. They have a 7-year-old son who was recently diagnosed with ADHD, and Deanna wonders if her husband may also suffer from this disorder. Is this couple caught in a never-ending downward spiral, and is ADHD contributing to the problem? Dr. Ned Hallowell, psychiatrist, best-selling author and expert in the field of ADD and ADHD, weighs in. After watching a video of Jason participating in a specific task, what are the therapist's thoughts about Jason's behavior? Then, meet Kevin who has been diagnosed with ADD. His wife, Roseshel, says their marriage is like a roller-coaster ride, and he's impossible to deal with. Can this couple save their union, or is the damage already done? If you wonder whether your spouse may suffer from ADD or ADHD, tune in to find out the signs to watch out for and what you can do to bring peace to your home. Share your thoughts here.

MY SON - ADHD??????

Quote From: ngprlady48

Thank you Dr Phil and Dr. Hallowell,  I have read both books and it was an eye opener to me at least to know that could  first finish the books and was not going crazy! just a little bit maybe :-)  The hard part is finding someone to be knowlegable and someone specfic  psychiatrist, or support group iin the Tampa, FL area ts been a real task and challange-and you know how we love challanges, As far with my Health Provider- I really have insisted that I need someone specialized because in the past its been a waste of time and money and had one doctor diagnose me with med's in about 20mins- I felt like I was the doctor- when they are not specialized- I pass every ADHD symptoms test with very high grades- And know that I am special and have been dealing with it and - I had been doing pretty good in hiding my negatives over the years- but now in my 50's I have been really struggling and need HELP- becoming more emotional and forgetful and talk in riddles my kids say- and lately become very frustrated and Distracted  really bothers me- my mind is going 50miles a minute- So if anyone has suggestions for me in the Tampa, Fl area please HELP-

Thank you and sincerely, Norma
