My spouse has adult ADHD, and we are both working from our (tiny) apartment for the forseeable future. On our best days, it is a challenge for our household to create and follow a routine. With shelter in place, it’s even harder. If you have ADHD, or you have a spouse with ADHD, can you share any strategies that you have found to work (or NOT work) with this new normal?

In a non-shelter-in-place world, as the non-ADHD-having spouse, I aim to be supportive but not in the “mom” or “caretaker” role 24/7. In this world, we’re in a tiny apartment together for an unknown amount of time, and I’m scared that if I don’t figure something out, it’s going to have severe ramifications on my spouse’s professional life and our relationship. Currently my spouse spends many hours each day laying down and reading the news online, and is finding it difficult to concentrate on work or to step away from the news firehose. I’m finding it difficult enough to create a routine for myself.

Fitness is typically a great helper for my spouse’s ADHD and mood, but we live in a very dense area where it’s virtually impossible to exercise without being surrounded by people, and my spouse is immunocompromised and does not feel comfortable going outside.

I’ve been doing workout videos online and my spouse will join me if I “sheepdog” them into it, and after they do it they are markedly more happy and energetic – but my spouse doesn’t have the oomph to do it by themselves. I’m unclear how much “sheepdogging” I should be doing right now and would like to know if others are finding strategies that work for them and/or their adult partners.
