There is a lot that goes on in this head of mine. I have quite a few diagnoses and, coming to terms with that hasn’t always been the easiest. However, it’s not like I can just remove them from who I am as a person so, I’m forced to accept and work with what I've got. Though, what frustrates me is when people tell me to stop making excuses when I relate a characteristic of mine to a disorder I have. I'm not making an excuse, I am letting you know that hey, this is why i do what I do but, I do try my hardest to work around them (trust me). I will reimagine every bit and piece of any social interaction and analyze all of the should haves to hopefully craft a better execution before the next and future interactions are usually met with anxiety there on out.
Being a neurodivergent person in a neurotypical world is not an easy feat, I am constantly met with challenges preforming the most simple tasks. It feels like you’re more often than not, broken.
I really want to encourage anyone following me to be a little more mindful and patient within your interations. Not everyone is willing to unviel all of their diagnoses like myself and therefore, you will never know the struggles they are facing and trying to overcome in that moment just to make that interaction pleasant for you. Masking is something I (and p much everyother neurodiverse person) have learned early on as a way to blend it. It is exhausting. We may tend to be a little more sensitive, more easily overwhelmed, and a tad more resistant to sudden change. So, give some love to your neurodivergent friends and feel free to hit the DMs if you need support, lovings, and a good virtual hug.

the topic of plastic is now more relevant than ever: it’s more and more plastic, and there’s less time to help the planet! (sounds funny, but it really is)
Even the smallest of your efforts can help our planet!
• Carry steel straws. They weigh almost nothing and take up very little space (you can search it on @amazon / @aliexpress
• Take your own grocery bags.
• Buy the things you need, but only in cardboard
packaging. (soap, shampoo, shower gel, etc.)
• Carry your cups / bottles with you whenever possible. Cups in a cafe, and bottles in school, for a walk or just use them at home. It will save you a lot of money.
