I vividly remember one day in school, when I seriously starting fighting the condition. I started asking questions as soon as I got confused in class.
Only, when I got confused and asked a question, it was usually about a piece of information the teacher just said 20 seconds ago.
Classmates would literally jeer at me for asking such a dumb question. The teacher would just look at me exasperated, like I was a dense motherfucker.
I wanted to start throttling people. Nobody understood why I asked those questions. They didn’t fucking ask. All they do is judge me for something I’m doing my best to change.
Nobody cares. You’re in this fight on your own terms, and your neighbor doesn’t give a shit that you have a condition.
