“It's like being a chameleon. You try to look neurotypical or you try to block out the ADHD tendency, so you can mask when you have any type of disorder. So autism, OCD, ODD. But you block it out so you appear neurotypical. And while you're doing that, it takes so much energy to do so because you're trying to put on that face, you're looking like you're focused.” - Brooke Schnittman, ADHD Coach
