So I've been one of those creepy lurkers that read ... everything, and never post.
Decided to come out of the darkness and make my presence known.
I'm a 45 year old male, married for 20 years to a female 41, I have two DDs (21, and 16)
So, you are wondering what brought me to this fine establishment ... great question !
Well, short answer is I want to be the best husband I can be in my marriage.
Long answer, my wife and I have had a very turbulent marriage, and alot is on me. Here are a few issues I am blessed with, just to get them out there ...
I have ...
ADHD combined type, predominantly inattentive type (diagnosed by psychiatrist)
Major Depression (diagnosed by psychiatrist)
Plus a few tendencies that is of concern.

About our marriage, and issues, I will make another post, just wanted a starter post to jump off the discussion!

Welcome to the forum! You sound very self-aware and I bet you have a lot to contribute. It never hurts to have a little extra support and a place to vent.
