In this episode Nicnac describes a moment of incredible clarity that they reached at the end of last weekend. An experience that they articulate as something akin to A “Dr. House” style epiphany coupled with the euphoric clearly the character would experience at the end of the majority of the episodes in the 2004-2012 series. They make the best effort they can muster in an attempt to explain their lifelong social, work and daily cognitive experience. They have made a herculean effort to complete this production as they endure the early stages of neurodivergent burn out. They begin the wrap up process by providing recommendations for sources of other first hand accounts of the neurodivergent experience. Capping it all off by sharing a piece of prose that they feel captures their experience in a unique way. If you have feedback or questions please share them with Nicnac. They would be happy to respond and engage with those that are interested.
