Welcome to my neurodivergent brain
Either I will keep it all to myself, or I will tell you too much.
I will over-perform or I will leave the playground.
I can give you perfect life advice but have difficulty getting myself a glass of water.
I’m very calm except when I am having a meltdown.
Sometimes when I speak in a group, only I can hear myself.
I like to be seen but I cannot bear to be looked at.
I enjoy work too much. I cannot bear parties.
Intimate is easy but I cannot do casual.
I’m very slow. I’m fast as lightning.
I’m secretive, I’m clear as a pond under the blue sky.
I have no words and then the perfect words string themselves together and make their way out of me.
I don’t want to fit in. I insist on belonging.
I’ll have it both ways.
Welcome to my neurodivergent brain.
It keeps me entertained. (when we are not panicking together)
