I wish neurotypicals understood that I am incapable of not working as hard as I can. I’m always terrified that people will misinterpret my occasional poor performance, tardiness, or other “failure” as a lack of effort or care. I ALWAYS put maximum effort in everything I do. My ADHD makes me feel like everything is important. So being mislabeled as careless or irresponsible is extremely painful for me.
Good luck with your project!
