I learned I had ADD just this decade. When I look back on the missed opportunities I could cry. But the resources weren’t there back in the 1960’s for this sort of thing. It took a long time to end the stigma against scientifically treating mental disorders, and a needed space for researchers.

I wish more adults on the spectrum would speak out.

I’ll tell you why most of them who I know don’t speak out: because the bad labels are still there.
If they say anything, they get branded with the whiner making excuses label and are told to “buck up and get over it”.

sigh.
