I have a problem.

I have acne.

I have a leaky roof.

I have a run in my stockings.

I have two left feet.

I have a peanut allergy.

I have an ingrown toenail.

I have anxiety.

I have a headache.

I have a short temper and it’s going to blow the next time I hear someone say “My son is ADHD.”

Or “My neighbor is Down Syndrome.” And although “autistic” and “dyslexic” are syntactically correct adjectives, you could do better than that, too. But mostly I object to anything that equates to “A person is a problem.”

I almost feel like writing more just to make the post more literary. But more strongly than that, I feel like I shouldn’t need to. Need I say more?
