Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for rigghteousness for they will be filled.

I have it harder than you!

Has anyone else noticed how impossible it is (here and in real life) to get a NT to validate or even acknowledge your feelings, how difficult it is to live with ADHD?

I have noticed that even when they ask a question about why you do something or why you feel a certain way, there's almost never any validation or recognition of it.

They go right to the "Oh, well you know I have to put up with blank and blank and its sooo hard for me"
