Luckily everyone I care about is super supportive and understands my ADHD. A lot of words do trigger me though “lazy, slow, stupid, irresponsible”. The worst for me lately is meeting new people. My social anxiety as I get older is getting worse. Have you ever tried to play a super complicated board game at a dinner party with a group of neuro typical adults?! The last time I attempted I was nearly in tears even before the game began. As they were going over the rules my head was spinning. I looked around and it seemed everyone else understood. I was the only one blankly staring at the board completely panicked on the inside. It has made me hate board games.
