Can you give a basic explanation of DBT? How is this approach similar and different to other forms of therapy like CBT? When is one approach better than another?

Hope I'm not too late to this! I was very recently diagnosed in my late 20's whereas my boyfriend had been diagnosed and taking meds as a child, but thought he grew out of it as an adult. Surprise! I realized during research into my own ADHD that it didn't magically go away and he definitely still has it.

Do you have any advice for another dual-ADHD couple? Most of the relationship advice in books or online generally assumes that there is one partner with ADHD and it's typically assumed the man has it. How do you tackle chores or other things where no one is especially motivated to get it done? Also, how can we support each other to have the agency to get things done on their own (ahem, the dishes) without having to remind/nag the other?

I just downloaded the app! I've been looking for a good way to keep track of my plants and plan my garden each spring. I've checked out the FAQ, but it would be super helpful if you had a Getting Started guide for the app!

Getting LASIK was one of the best things that ever happened to me! I got LASIK 6 years ago after I finished college and my prescription had been stable for several years. My vision is still way better than it used to be, and I mostly don't have to wear glasses anymore, except for driving, going to movies, or in the classroom (I'm back in grad school).

However my vision in my right eye has degraded and I'd prefer to never have to wear glasses again. What are your thoughts on getting the surgery again? Is there a limit to the number of times you can have the surgery? Are there increased risks?
