Navigators, let’s share some stories! How did you first realize you might be neurodivergent?

I’ll go first… ironically, I became a School Psychologist who evaluated students with learning differences and neurodivergent profiles. In just a few years, I realized my brain worked in similar ways and began questioning the possibility of being neurodivergent myself. It has evolved into a special interest of mine ever since!

Anybody else here have compulsions surrounding hair? I've been awake for hours with color depositing shampoo and conditioner obsessively perfecting my hair, and nothing seems to get the color I want. While I know my previous color depositing items weren't working perfectly, this compulsion is getting exhausting...I don't know if there's a product that's ever going to work "well enough" to keep up with it.

#WorldSuicidePreventionDay #WSPD 10/09/2020

#WSPD my friend died by suicide last year, i still haven’t even started to process her going. I have has suicidal thoughts every day for the past five years - going between active and passive. Chronic suicidality is so tiring, and it feels like nobody understands unless you are mid attempt. I feel like I am beyond help. I am in #emdr to try and help me process some of my trauma but so far I am stuck trying to break through my #obsessivecompulsive personality barriers to get there. I am over half way through and I feel like I am wasting so much time. I feel so unbelievably lonely, nobody understands. I am in the same depth of #Depression as the day the trauma happened. I am so frustrated by my #Asexuality and sex-repulsion not understanding why i am petrified of anything remotely of that nature. I am never going to be able to live a life in this society or ever be a functioning adult in any sense. I am just so scared. I am being a horrible friend to all of my friends at the minute. I am not seeing anyone as i want to be cautious about #COVID19 and friends are messaging me but recieving messages stresses me out so much that i just ignore them all and hope they will disappear. Everyone must hate me for ghosting them. #MentalHealth #Anxiety #Depression #PTSD #PersonalityDisorders #SuicidalThoughts #Suicide


Preferred sleeping condition

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I can’t get comfortable enough to fall asleep if the sheets aren’t as smooth as possible with no bunches or wrinkles. Especially by my feet. Does anyone else have this quirk? #obsessivecompulsive
