I loved your essay so much. It reminds me of when people were coming out of the closet. And, essentially that’s what you are doing. The thing is there are way more of you out there than you know because people hid their mental illnesses so well. I never knew or suspected my own ADHD until some doctor recommended me to get a checkup. The thing is that your brain chemistry and your specialness allows you to see things that others won’t. It’s a special way of being. Coming out and feeling accepted for being different is liberating. Anyway, coping mechanisms and different ways of dealing with work environment is so essential. I think I have learned my share of them as well. One of which to alleviate my own Dopamine deficiency, I eat eggs. Vitamin D helps to regulate my Dopamine better. Good luck to you. Your essay was really inspirational. Thank you for writing and publishing it. It must not have been easy. But, you have definitely conquered!
