What is certain is that for the moment they exist in a strikingly obvious way.

Outsourcing Grownupping.

One of the things that was a huge realization for me was when someone explained why ADHD was thought of as a boy's disorder that you grow out of -

Because the men would be assumed to have both a wife AND a secretary, onto whom they would offload everything ADHD is bad at.
