Hearing about some of the reactions we get when we tell people what we’ve discovered, or your in your case, Larynxa, that you were changing medication, I have to keep reminding myself, “They are saying this out of real concern and caring for me.”

The people who often have the biggest reaction to my stuff are those closest to me. Because they care about me.

If I tell a relative stranger I’m going on medication or that I have ADHD, they kind of shrug. They don’t care about me.

I know there’s other stuff going on as well. Often loved ones have a lot of anger and other stuff built up from things we’ve said or done over the years, (Or especially the things we failed to do.) and they are incredibly skeptical. Again, I have to remind myself, that’s okay. I can’t tell you how many people in my life were skeptical, dismissive, or whatever… and who are now accepting and supportive.

I just did what I had to do and they came around, one by one.
