It Just Bothers Me

This probably won't win me any popularity contest but it really bothers me how people describes people with ADHD as children and babies and not adults. We have a disability but we are adults. It hurts, it bugs me. It's bigoted. I know it comes from a place of pain but I don't like it at all. It's demeaning and disrespectful. If someone had a physical disability and needed help would it be okay to call them a manchild? One lady here has bad knees and needs extra help and can't do some things. Can I call her a little girl? It's just wrong and I don't like it. How can you expect someone to want to love you and be married to you and make themselves better if that's the sort of names you call them? It's abusive. Plain and simple. If I treated the kids at my work, at the special needs daycare with that attitude I'd get fired. If my boyfriend ever called me a grown baby or something I'd break up with him. It's not okay. It's just not.
