There are many obstacles that neurodivergent people face with a lack of accommodations and awareness. That doesn’t mean we can’t laugh at the situations we find ourselves in from time to time… they say laughter is the best medicine after all. That’s why we’ve put together our highest rated memes from social media that will either make you laugh - or cry. Feel free to share them with other neurodivergent folk (or you boss if you’re brave enough).

2. When it comes disclosing whether you are neurodivergent at work and you only have one of two options.
3. When the one thing that makes your heart beat faster is noise-cancelling headphones.
4. When someone verbally explains a task to you, but your communication style is the written format.
5. When you’re being productive but evil Kermit comes along and seduces you with his distractions.
6. When you get distracted and then hyperfocus kicks in and you spend way too much time on the wrong task.
