Just Like You
“I think something we ADHDers struggle with but, don’t talk about much is our sense of inferiority. Its true, we feel, somehow, like were “beneath” our peers. As if everything we’ve tried to accomplish and failed is on display on a billboard above our heads! We live with the shame of failure that most NT’s (neurotypicals) will never feel.
We just want to see something, anything, through til the end. We wonder; how do you guys do it? How do you devise a plan, map it out, gather necessities, and see it through?? ADHD brains cannot do this at all.
We are envious of all your accomplishments. We want so badly to be able to get out shit together enough to even make a plan. We do, we want to be like you.”
