I process things much slower than most people, feel emotions deeply, experience stimuli more acutely and with greater intensity. This makes life exceedingly difficult and amazingly awesome in equal measure.
It is challenging to explain to others what I am just getting a grasp on myself.
I didn’t always have the words.
In a world that requires multi-tasking, thinking on the fly, and quick appropriate replies, I have accepted that I must navigate it on a sort of conditioned response auto pilot.
But if I’m honest… sometimes I just wish I could hold up a sign that says
“Processing…Please Wait :)”
