I hope this episode makes you uncomfortable.  I know it was for me.  Instead of continuing the Executive Function Chronicles, I decided to go a different direction in honor of ADHD Acceptance Month.  I decided to take a break from talking about the ways my brain holds me back and send gratitude for all the ways it makes my life more vibrant, colorful, and beautiful.  Neurodivergent life is really hard, AND I love my ND brain. And I love yours too. Happy ADHD Acceptance Month.
