It’s two in the morning and I walked into the kitchen and my roommate screamed and said “oh my god, you scared me. You scared me!” And I just looked at her like this and said “hmmm” and walked away.
"im writing a research paper so reblog if—"
no youre not
I haven’t full belly laughed in months and I’m just sitting here cackling and crying over this conversation I’m having with Nova and I just. Love them so much. So much.
people have a tendency to think that when somebody has multiple mental disabilities that they are neatly compartmentalized from each other. This is not the case
For example I have ADHD and Autism but they cannot be separated from each other, they are one entity and each feeds into and off of the other.
In highschool I was given extra time on projects because everything I do has to be PERFECT and giving me a flexible deadline allowed for me to get less stressed over my work… the only reason I was allowed that extra time, though, is because I am fairly decent at articulating what’s going on with me. I’ve generally been fairly “likeable” to adults.
Then there’s people like my little sister who are not so great at articulating what’s going on, also have adhd, have been endlessly bullied their entire lives for being “lazy” or “stupid” and had to switch schools several times because of it. Like don’t tell me that being treated like that by people isn’t going to affect your work ethic and your sense of self worth.
I’m the only person in my family or really the only person at all willing to listen to her or try and understand. And that’s not fair to her, or to either of us really, because I’m also the only person in the family that’s been there. All it tells us is that people like us are never going to understand, or even try to.
But damn, to read that little girl’s poetry. It’s incredible.
I’ve posted this before but I’m posting it again because it’s just so important and really gets at the heart of why so much advice about procrastination, much of it targeted at people who have ADHD but are just considered “lazy,” fails. Before you can tell someone to “just do it already,” you need to think about the reasons they’re NOT doing it, like all the meanings they’ve attached to vague terms like “success” and “failure.”
That resonates too much. As I sit on tumblr at 1 in the morning, avoid studying for a test I have at noon today.
I am fairly convinced that Red Pandas are not real.

Well goodness! Maybe there’s some sort of mental connection going on. I love my friends so much that we can now communicate telepathically??
My brother just took the dnd alignment test and got neutral evil which is essentially Social Darwinism and I’m so disappointed
fuck you, etsy (this backpack has been sold but i want it T_T)
You are allowed to grieve the years you lost to mental illness. You’re allowed to be mad that it happened to you. You’re allowed to pine after the person you might have been had it been different. But don’t let that get in the way of your growing into your new self and following a wholly new path for your life.
