We're dealing and working with getting DH treated for this. We've gotten the diagnosis, but have been fighting with a psychiatrist that claims with DH being a SAHD, he doesn't have grades or work performance to judge effectiveness of treatment. Now we're trying a different route for treatment, he has an appointment tomorrow. We found out we may be able to get disability for him with his combination of issues of ADHD, off the charts depression, and OCD. It's definitely cost us money as it has impacted his ability to hold a job, and since the last one get one. It's impacted his ability to pursue higher education. It's also impacted our budget, as he doesn't have the time management ability to pursue the home making and cooking and planning skills that would help reduce grocery costs, etc further. There's also his limits with keeping track of things that lead to leftovers going unused due to not knowing how old they are for food safety, in addition to simply not being able to differentiate between leftovers that should be eaten for lunch or those that are enough to be used for another dinner. All these are complicated further by me working night shifts, which is why I'm working hard to get a daytime job, be it where I am now or elsewhere.
