Hello Sara and friends!

I would love to join the crew. I was diagnosed at 40 with Inattentive type, and without mincing words, life has always been a struggle.. trying to pass myself off as “normal” or “neurotypical” is exhausting. I still struggle with self acceptance/low self esteem, with feeling intensely, with speaking too honestly, and the list goes on. Nonetheless, I am not all doom and gloom. I am grateful for many of my quirks and traits!

I am ready for candid conversation free from judgement or ridicule. It would be lovely to connect and feel understood:)
