The knowledge that I have ADHD has transformed my life. Many of the things which I believed were faults were the effects of trying to adapt to a neurotypical world when there was no way to fit my triangle peg in to the octagon hole without glaring gaps.
Those gaps are the things which cause the most issues. I can’t do what I am not designed to do. Literally, my brain doesn’t operate on the same code as a neurotypical brain. I can’t think the way a neurotypical does and at 46 I’m finally glad that I don’t.
My brain has allowed me to remain kind and loving despite all of the people who told me that being me was wrong.
