Neuro-diversity and the Tyranny of the Hug

I spent February in Connecticut with my brother, and his wife, and playing with their two adorable toddlers, Di-di and Buddy. But mostly, I went to write.  Connecticut in the dead of a long winter is a peaceful wonderland of nothing happening. It’s snowy and tranquil.  Nothing to do but write.

Valentine's Day-- A Neurodiverse love story.

Henry spent the fall working on a red MG sports car outside the window of my bedroom. He wore a thin white t-shirt and looked for all the world like a blond Marlon Brando from  Streetcar Named Desire. ( see attached picture. Rather than post a picture of Henry and embarrass him, I have included Marlon Brando.  Enjoy).

My ADHD holiday season-- the Tarantino edition

    It’s a truism that there are as many different kinds of neuro-diversity  as there are neuro-diverse people, yet there is one  thing that unites us all.

    Holidays are hard for us. I have yet to meet anyone ND who doesn’t have a disastrous childhood holiday story.  

      Mine happened when was when I was thirteen.  I wanted to make snow ice cream in the blender.  My mom said I could if I hurried, and cleaned up after myself.  My grandparents were due to arrive at any moment.

ADHD and the Election

    One of the best things about being ADHD is that I don’t have to unfriend people on Facebook or twitter. All I have to do is lose my phone.  It happens all the time.  And it’s great.  I recommend losing your phone every couple of weeks or so.
