i wont bore you with the the list of medical conditions ive been labeled with but lets just say its alot
for someone who has to watch their eight year old sister overtake them physically and outstrip them mentally on a regular basis is very easy to look at her and get upset or jealous
and on occasion , i have ... i know its ridiculous , she's eight
but , guess what. being normal or "neurotypical" as the doctors like to call it
ITS WAY OVERRATED
and here is why.
i get to learn valuable lessons about what it means to succeed after almost everyone has said you can't.
she will never know the satisfaction of getting an email that starts
"wow , that essay was amazing" after 12 years of working flat out just to scrape a pass
having the sheare joy of looking a dr/teacher in the eye and saying i did it anyway .. have a massive slice of humble pie my friend
so when you look at it like that i'm not sure i want to be jealous actually, being neurotypical sounds kind of boring
ps... I love her to pieces
lots of love
