Soon after my diagnosis, I ventured into Melissa Orlov’s ADHD and Marriage forums.

And then I threw myself in front of a bus.

Emma slams the invitation onto the table so hard, the spoon in your hand jumps and dribbles bits of oatmeal down your arm. Your jaw tightens, heart races, and the breakfast you were enjoying moments before is now a hard lump somewhere between throat and stomach.

“You will attend the luncheon, Alice,” your sister says, “and you will use that fanciful mind of yours to fancy yourself a lady and act as such.”

You grip the spoon and fancy it’s her neck.

“I am not opposed to attending,” you say for what feels like the hundredth time, “but I may be fashionably late. I promised Clarence I would speak to his gardener. He’s having issues with rabbits in his rose garden again.”

She steps closer, rests one fist on the table, and leans in. You can feel her breath hot on your face. Capers. She must have eaten something with capers.

“You will not speak with Clarence nor his gardener. You will attend the luncheon, you will attend promptly, and you will not cause me further embarrassment.”

Which choice would you make?

A. Fling the spoon of oatmeal at Emma.
B. Swallow your anger and pretend everything’s fine.
C. Make an excuse for her behavior, apologize and blame yourself.
D. Confront her behavior, ask questions, and try to get to the root issue.

“This hour in history needs a dedicated circle of transformed nonconformists… dangerous passions of pride, hatred and selfishness are enthroned in our lives; and men do reverence before false gods of nationalism and materialism. The saving of our world from pending doom will come, not through the complacent adjustment of the conforming majority, but through the creative maladjustment of a nonconforming minority.” -Martin Luther King Jr., Strength to Love

2017 had me searching for the right focus word and I've finally found it. Do you have a Word for the Year? Are you still in the process of choosing? No worries, there’s a lot of year left! If it helps, here are 150 words I listed when looking for my own. (Weird thing? I wasn’t trying for a certain number and somehow ended up with 150. Kind of cool.)

Stop remembering everything you’re not and forgetting who you are. wp.me/p84iui-4pG
