    I am excited about this. I am married to the most precious man alive, who also happens to be a dyslexic/mild ADHD/and a Highly Sensitive person. I jokingly laugh to myself that while my husband is brilliant, he’s high needs (NOT special needs) but there’s no help or info for people married to high needs people. Your blog has been a huge help to me.

    • AWESOME!!! My husband is super high-needs and that’s okay, but draining all the same. You’re right. There’s not really a lot out there for marriages that are both strong AND trying. Ours has it’s challenges because of mental health issues (both diagnosed and possibly more) and overall emotional wellbeing, but that doesn’t mean that he’s a bad husband, abusive, or anything like that. We both have to work to make it work, but hey – we hit 10 years so we must be doing something right!!! I’m glad to have you following along!!

        Thank you. It’s not easy. He’s also a natural forgetful person and an (endearing) scatterbrain. It’s like being married to a loveable absent minded professor that you half to stay a half step behind to put out fires, but also right next to in order to help be a buffer but you need to be quick thinking and half a step ahead in to clear the path and scout for trouble. Our marriage looks so different than we expected even though I love him dearly. I really cannot imagine having kids anytime soon, if ever, because I am responsible for so much already and am so tired by it. He tells me constantly that I’m his rock and I love him so well and I’m so patient with him & he loves and respects me for who I am and overall he’s amazing. But dear god I am just… tired.
