The next time I’m late for work I swallow my usual ADHD excuse.

I started a group course ADHD for adults.
Eight companions and a psychologist. It was a warm atmosfere of trust and understanding.

It was nice not to feel strange when you speak in a group. I always think that people find me a little strange.

I was told by the group that when I objectively am affected by ADHD symptoms and others have suffered from it (such as being late), I use my ADHD as an excuse. It might explain it, but should not be used as an excuse.

Because I have a hard time not obsessing on certain subjects, I use the dictionary. It states that an apology is an apology. And a statement a clarification.

It lies in the word debt.

So…

The next time I’m late for work I swallow my usual ADHD excuse. I fold my hands behind my back and with a smug face I say that it is due to an undiagnosed brain disorder which I’ve had at from birth. My boss says angrily: "boy, that's no excuse!" To which I say, "right, it's an explanation." Sighing, he shakes his head and mumbles that he is tired of me.
