I feel like having controlling parents have taken a toll on my mental health. I would feel like if they weren’t like that I would’ve been more happier and do more things that I would. My parents tell me how much I need confidence in my self and to be more comfortable yet they prohibit a lot of things that I can be able to do in order to do that. The fuck type of logic even is that.
I would’ve been more confident to say and do the things I wanted to if they wouldn’t constantly remind me to watch how I act whenever I I don’t react the way they want me to. I see how my friends are more like the,selves like I am myself. I feel like once I get out of the house the damage to my mental health would be done. That how my parents raised me and made me feel about myself is something I have to fix because of them. I get blames for the way I act because of how much internalized ableism they hold despite being neurolodivergent themselves.
If that was the case and I end up healing how the fuck am I supposed to forgive them after that. Does that have to do with feeling certain things they don’t and being gaslit that I’m the only one hurting myself and that they never did anything to make me feel that way.

As a neurodivergent person its fascinating and baffling to me that the base premises and assumptions behind police interrogation, and shit like micro expressions, basically any practice that claims to teach you how to detect lies, completely falls apart once neurodivergency enters the picture.
Lack of eye contact? completely normal if you’re on the spectrum. Same with exaggerated “put on” facial expressions (or lack of expression if you arent masking). Giving lots of unnecessary details? Autism and ADHD baby. Cant sit still? ADHD. Cant seem to remember extremely basic info, or conversely remembering “too much”? ADHD and Autism.
Like it’s honestly pretty horrifying, since these misunderstandings about how our brains work could literally be used as evidence of us committing a crime.

One time in 3rd grade I zoned out and I don't think I've ever zoned back in

Just a reminder that if you have mental health issues, or are neurodivergent or both, it's 100% okay to toss out the conventional ideas of housekeeping.
Use the dishes straight from the dishwasher until it's time to fill it again.
Toss your clean clothes into baskets instead of folding them.
Shop on a daily basis if a big weekly shop is too much. Use Door Dash, Uber Eats, home delivery..
Leave your bed unmade (just change the sheets regularly, so have a few sets available to you to avoid executive function issues).
You don't need to function like your parents did in order to function like you do.

I never cease to be amazed at my ability to mess up my room in such a short time

The neurodivergent experience is talking about your brain as if it's a separate entity from your self

people with adhd be like:
well there’s 24 hours in a day, but i have to sleep for like 6-7 of them so then that’s like 17-18 hours. but i have to go to school for 7-8 hours so then that’s just like 9-10 hours. but at home i have to do homework which takes me forever so that’s like 4 hours so now i only have like 5-6 hours. and then if you count time to eat, bathe, use the bathroom, and talk to family that’s like only 2 hours. and during that 2 hours i’ll be so stressed about how i only have 2 hours that i won’t even enjoy my free time, so i’m not going to sleep tonig-
