Is it You, Me or Adult ADD – Gina Pera

Book review

Help for ADHD couples

In “Is it You, Me or Adult ADD: Stopping the Rollercoaster When Someone you Love has ADD”, Gina Pera her own experiences, summarises the clinical and research literature, and offers a study of her own design to show the complex ways in which ADD affects relationships.

Sadly most books on marriage and conventional couple therapy make little impact on the challenges brought by ADHD to a relationship, this book helps couples with these added challenges find hope and solutions. Pera is effective in the way she captures the subtle dynamics of partnerships affected by ADHD.

“Is it You, me or Adult ADHD” is brought to life with quotes from both partner in relationships, both those with and without ADHD. Her book provides a strong framework to address the stresses that ADHD imposes upon intimacy, love and friendship.
