…tines that most people seem to find normal, perhaps even easy for them. At least, basic or obvious. And I still haven’t found too many other people who feel this same way themselves, so, I guess that makes me feel even weirder.
THIIIIS this is the main reason I find your work so healing and relatable. I've spent my entire teenage and adult life feeling ashamed about my struggle to stick to basic routines and find balance. I suspect there are more neurodivergent people out there who feel the same, but the shaming and hate one encounters when trying to speak up about it is reason enough for a lot of us to just stay silent and ashamed. We (often rightfully) fear that if we speak up about our struggles we might lose our jobs, our friends, our peers' respect. So we stay silent - and the stigma and shame cycle continues. Thank you for helping to break the cycle.
