As much I’ve read about experiences of Black folk in the USA, being ND on top of that, I also assume you know that the USA is a 1st world country, and Brazil is a 3rd world country, so is the country I’m from.
Things are and will be different, including the legal system, economy, the education system, etc, so I also will assume that you understand that OP being in a 3rd world country, things will be much more difficult for them. And the struggles of being Neurodivergent you already know.
I will not derail this thread further, therefore this will be my last reply to this thread. Being in the situation I am now, because I obviously won’t be able to speak for Blanche, if I was in the US I would’ve changed my career and let go of my hardwork. But being where I am, I can’t let go of it. I’ve spent sleepless nights finishing assignments and cried myself to sleep because of all the stress. I’ve had meltdowns in lab and walked under the scorching sun to get to my classes.
I’ve broken mirrors and went through difficult times for the sake of my education.
How could I let it go, just because some people wanted to kick me out?
I fight tooth and nail to go somewhere, I fight tooth and nail to stay because I earn it. My college seat will be because of all the blood, sweat and tears I’ve poured into it with my passion. All the emotional, physical and mental investment.
How could I let it go?
If I did, I would look back and regret. I’ve done it before, I regret it.
Also, I see you’ve had a bad experience with a therapist. Even I did. Among all the ND people I know including myself have all had bad experiences with therapists till they found the right one for them.
Not all therapists are narcissists. Some are, some definitely are, but not all. Good ones will listen to you and help you navigate, help you understand yourself and heal, but they won’t give you advice on your life. They can give suggestions, yes, but not advice. What you want to do in your life is in your hands, therapists won’t tell you what to do because if it goes wrong people will attack them.
This is all I have to say, and will say. I hope I’ve gotten across what I wanted to convey. Good day to you, Oflameo.
And to you, Blanche, I wish you good luck. Strength to you:muscle: and may those corrupt people have a taste of their own medicine.
Good luck to the magicians doing the workings as well
