@julia it was decided that since i was 'gifted' that any disfunction or ways in which I was challenged was totally my fault. And then I found the diary my mom kept when I was 9, and it's a laundry list of ADHD/autism behaviors in me that she just wishes could be controlled or stopped.


@raye @julia@efdn.club Ooh yes. I grew up (and lived much of my adult life) thinking I was evil. Finding out I was autistic made so much sense.
