Writer Statement

I wrote the narration for this script when I myself still had undiagnosed ADHD, two months before I was able to finally get help. ADHD is often missed in both young girls and children of color, two groups I stood at the intersection of when I was little. Even now that I am able to present an official diagnosis, my experience is often invalidated by people who think that this disability is really just a convenient excuse for "lazy" and "irresponsible" people to avoid "growing up." While the main character is certainly at fault for much of what happened in his relationship, he does also display a lot of behaviors that are largely out of his control. My hope for this script is that when it gets made, it will A) help change the narrative that ADHD is only experienced by cis white boys, and B) help minority ADHDers to feel seen, accept themselves and the trauma that comes with being undiagnosed, and realize that they don't need to mask their symptoms to be "normal."
