@FuchsiaShock wow uh
this is eye-opening for us

"ADHD is the most poorly-named affliction ever. like hi do you have a profound physical inability to accomplish your goals specifically because they're your goals and also the thought of your friends not liking you makes you want to die? you may have Trouble Sitting Still Disorder"

"it's so obvious they named it based on how we inconvenience them rather than what it actually does to us"
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
