You think ADHD is a scam by the government. You think I’ve been told I’m inferior and I’m just buying back my brain, buying back my skills, buying back whatever the fuck.
The only people who have told me I’m inferior are you, the people who tell me my disability doesn’t exist. The people who tell me the way my head is so fucked up must just be all me. I came up with feeling inferior all on my own, before I knew this was a disability, before I was properly and regularly medicated, because I didn’t understand ADHD.
Don’t try to tell me I don’t need this. Not being able to get out of bed because it just doesn’t seem fucking important, walking into class and finding out I have a major assignment due, trying to read the same page for five hours straight… I can’t live like that. I won’t live like that. And it won’t get me where I want to be in life. It just makes me miserable.
Is part of the problem with ADHD that we’re asked to live in a non-ADHD society? Of course it fucking is. But please don’t try to take my medication away from me because of that. Don’t take away my dreams because your ideals are more important when you don’t have to live with the consequences.
Because your “ideals” are fucking me over.
