Yes, I forget things [RANT]

Yes, I forget things.

I forget things because I have ADHD, but you barely acknowledge the existence of ADHD, let alone that I have it.

I forget things because I hyperfocus on another things.

And yes, I forget things because they just aren't f~~king important to me the way they are to you, and there's no way I can MAKE them important to me, and frankly, I don't care to.

No, I DON'T know "what Life is".

I don't know what your life is NTer.

I don't derive pleasure from the same things that you do. I don't share your goals or motivations. I don't GET you anymore than you GET me.

YOU DON'T know what MY LIFE IS.

You don't know the life of an ADHDer.

You don't know the life of a person with severe, pervasive Anxiety.

No, I am not "someone who can do things", because I have executive dysfunction.

So perhaps I was NOT suitable for the position that someone else (who saw more potential in me) suggested I should have.

I DID get the position just below that though, and you got NADA, so middle finger to you. ..|..

Yes, I hang out with people you think are crazy and socially undesirable.

Maybe it's because I can relate to them in a way I can't with you.

Maybe I am crazy too.

And yes, I have about twice as much more to write, but I can't get myself to do it. Bleh.
