I need to start writing more things down

I have a good memory.

I swear.

Just sometimes I forget where that important document is

(because I haven’t needed it for a while)

or can’t remember the next task I needed to do.

Lists and calendars are very important these days.

Without them

I probably wouldn’t get anything done.

Unless it is to tell you about some silly trivia tidbit

that has nothing to do with the situation at hand.

Misdiagnosis

The criteria used

Is based on the wrong gender.

You have known for years

That something was different about you.

Your thoughts, your actions

Your decisions were based on trying to fit in.

Be normal.

Be a good citizen

And society will accept you.

But the truth is

You will never be accepted

Because you are not normal.

You know the diagnosis you should have.

Yet the physician, therapist or psychiatrist

All base your symptoms

On research that never took in to consideration

That you are female.

Not male.

We are equal

But that does not mean

We are the same.

A baseball player

Does not have the skill set to play football.
