Guys I seriously relate with Padparadscha and here’s why:
When I was 10, I was diagnosed with Adrenal insufficiency, which is a condition where the adrenal glands don’t form properly on their own. Without these glands, it is harder for a person to understand and retain information as quickly as someone normal.
So before I started taking the medication that helps my condition, I was slow. I wanted to understand the information given to me, but I couldn’t. I also wanted to help as much as I could, but whenever I tried, people found me annoying and inconvenient.
So this is where Padparadscha comes into play. She can only predict things that just happened, yet she still let’s everyone know how she feels and what she thinks. She gets things, but she just has to take more time to think about it. Before I was diagnosed, I felt exactly like her! Both of us want to help out as much as we can and we do even if the information has passed.
I’ve always had relatable characters, but never to this extent. I give the crewniverse so much respect for taking action and representing such a character like Padparadscha.
If I am able to have a deep connection with such a character, then a child who watches the show that has a case similar to mine can also have that connection and I really feel like that’s important
