Hi there,

I too am recently diagnosed though suspected it for last three years.

Would love to be able to chat to others who understand this thing. It’s a really tough trot, pretending to be normal as someone has already said.

Funny thing for me is that since diagnosis I have either gotten much much worse or I am just now more aware of how it has it’s grubby fingers all over every minute of every day.

I laugh and I am creative and consider myself an ideas person. Recently my role as a high school English teacher has become so heavy with admin, and so I spend a good portion of every day in self loathing because I am operating more and more in my weaknesses (forms, reports, marking, assessment dates, feedback dates)and less in my strengths (creative lessons, concepts, texts).

Hmmm there I go again, in too much detail instead of a quick hi.

Hi. I would like to be friends too. It is hard when ppl don’t get it.
