Markiplier saying he has ADD has actually made me quite happy.
I dunno, its like, when I was at school with autism, it wasn’t very well understood, and teachers were either patronising or outright nasty (one teacher called me crazy to another student, then when my father complained the teacher claimed that autism can cause “false memories” which is completely untrue). I was bullied a lot, and still do struggle with self-esteem and confidence issues.
Either way, i got wind of the fact that I wasn’t expected to succeed. And that’s the case for a lot of people who are neurodivergent - people look at you like you aren’t as capable of doing great things.
So it always makes me happy whenever I see anybody who is neurodivergent succeed, especially at a job in the public eye, and especially when they get to utilise their special interest. It reminds me that we can.
Good job Markiplier! thank you - maybe its not too late for me after all?
