Search - "neurodiverse"
I've just spent 20 minutes swearing about this to a friend. I'm now past "blind incoherent rage". 50% of managers in a survey said they'd be "uncomfortable recruiting and line managing a neurodiverse individual". Why the fuck should I have to hide my condition? FUCK THEM.
I may still be a bit angry.

I have ADHD. If you don't know what that means, for me it makes me a better software engineer. I can't do repetitive, so my code is by definition DRY. If someone needs help, I'll notice and help because my brain can't filter out the emotion of someone struggling. I fixate on problems I don't know how to solve, I literally struggle to stop myself. The list goes on. But, at its heart, who gives a shit?
I'm a software engineer, and I'm good at what I do. Does anything else matter?16
