Tempers and mood swings are common among those with ADD; it is also very usual for someone with ADD to become very focused on something that interests them. It is best diagnosed by a clinical psychologist with the aid of questionnaires and observance. It is worth noting that ADD is hereditary. If your partner is truly ADD, he should be sensitive to your needs as much as you will need be sensitive towards his. Medication is not the only form of treatment for ADD; a change in diet can often help, reducing refined foods and carbohydrates, sugar, and avoiding additives and preservatives as much as possible.
