On Being A “Real Adult”

I think what this post boils down to is what 99% of my writing boils down to; respect people.  Respect people who live in different household arrangements than you do.

And that includes yourself. 

Most of all yourself. 

Your existence is valid, whatever that existence may look like. 

You are valid as the person–as the adult–you are, no matter what skills you do or don’t have and how self-sufficient you are or aren’t.

It’s the ability that allows you to dine out with your friends and family in a crowded, noisy restaurant and make… Continue reading “Actually, I Didn’t Hear You”: Auditory Processing Difficulties
