Wife refuses to enable husband's ADHD denial 🙅‍♀️

A wife has reached the end of her tether with her husband's denial of his ADHD diagnosis. Despite previously managing his symptoms with medication, he stopped taking them after reading some blogs that convinced him he no longer needed them. His wife, who is a medical resident, noticed significant changes in his behaviour and has been covering the majority of their expenses while also doing her residency. After refusing to continue enabling him financially and with household chores, the husband exploded verbally and has since refused to seek treatment. The wife has made the difficult decision to separate from him due to the impact on her work and health. The situation has escalated to the point where there is now physical damage to their home. Despite the challenges, the wife remains committed to taking care of herself and hopes her husband will eventually seek the help he needs. Stay tuned for the comments and reactions to this story.
