On Wednesday I told you of my wife’s recent passing, my personal loss. I received condolences here and by email, thank you.
And while dwelling on it isn’t very pleasant for me, I need to share it with you in order to blog about my ADHD without having to censor myself. Modifying my personal anecdotes that illustrate ADHD-related information by leaving out my current and past marital status is possible, but it isn’t my style.
The following is an example of an anecdote that I could not have told adequately without having told you about my wife’s passing:

I’ve been aware for some time that my wife was the greater half of our “couple dynamic executive function.” But I’m just now finding out the staggering extent to which I relied on her to play that role.
