Clumsy, or Neurodivergent?

An explanation of some unexpected symptoms if you’re ADHD and/or Autistic.

People with ADHD may struggle with the following: 

  • Proprioception
  • Interoception
  • Fine motor skills 

I was nervous but on the surface…

…. I looked even more nervous.

One of the very first dinners I had with my now husband’s family was Thanksgiving dinner. I was in my early 20s, we were newly dating, and I was heckin’ nervous.

I already struggle with anxiety, now add to this meeting my partner’s large, happy family during a fairly major holiday dinner. Yikes.

How did it go, you might ask?
