i told my dad i was bi yesterday at the car dealership because he literally asked me straight up if i was
he took it “better” than i thought he would (ie: not straight up disowning me or telling me to stay out of his life)
but he also told me its just a “phase” and that im “feeling obligated” to identify as such because of how much im being “exposed” to the community and that because im catholic its demanded that i dont act on these impulses and that i “just havent met the right boy”
and then he said he only wants to see me in heaven and that he’s gonna schedule an appointment with a priest to talk to the two of us
Thousands gather in Manchester and across the UK to pay tributes to those who lost their lives and the families affected after a terrorist attack after an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. Many of the victims were children, and the youngest confirmed dead was only 8 years old.
Adhd is already taken much too lightly, it can be extremely debilitating to many people and impacts every aspect of their life. I’m tired of it being treated as a less serious or “less important” disorder. I’m tired of it being thrown under the bus. It can be just as debilitating and hard to live with as depression or autism.
I grew up thinking i was neurotypical until 9th grade, despite being diagnosed with adhd in first grade, because nobody treated it seriously as a disorder. All I’d known about it was “Hyper and draws in class uwu” until ealier this year, 10th grade, i found out about executive dysfunction, hyperfixations, memory problems.
I grew up thinking i was neurotypical, but that i was just lazy and st*pid, that something about me was broken because i couldnt remember things i had just been told, i was told that i just wasnt trying hard enough because i was a smart kid.
I thought i was messed up because of my hyperfixations, and i hated how “obsessed” i would get with my fandoms and how much my friends made fun of it because many of them were “cringey” (Mlp, hetalia, fnaf, and undertale to name a few)
Please stop treating adhd as nothing more than “hyperactive and easily distracted”. It’s fucked up.
