Um, yeah, I’ve had similar reactions neurotyps, some don’t care while others have started heated arguments.
It’s a mine field, the annoying ones are, “oh yeah I have that, I’m a little ADHD from time to time”.
Ugh, either you have it or you don’t, it’s not an “occasional “thing.
I really hate the deniers, “it’s just a made up disease by the drug companies” oh really? I did not know there are pharmaceutical companies that have been around since 1775, when the first time an ADHD condition was written about.
As long as there’s prejudice there’s always going to be stigma, so I pretty much don’t tell anyone unless I know them really well, and they can be an adult and have an intelligent discussion about it.
I’ve been thinking of finding a support group, one my area, it’d be nice to actually talk face to face with people like us, with similar experiences and share ideas.
