A mental health metaphor I ripped straight from tumblr Show more
Having a mental health problem or a neurodiversity and trying to function in neutotypical spaces is like trying to peel a potato with a potato.
And then someone will see you struggling to peel this fucking potato and they'll say "Oh, you're just not using the right tools, here's my potato peeler." And they hand you another FUCKIN POTATO.
This metaphor is why I would like to call someone giving you tools that don't work with best intentions "Giving me a potato."
Thank you for coming to my ted talk.
