I actually started writing on Medium because he fascinated me so much! Whenever I feel like beating myself up over executive dysfunction, I like thinking about how he probably did too. And he still did amazing.
With many historic figures who were probably neurodivergent, it is up in the air whether they were or not. Da Vinci, I have 0 doubts he was. He was classic ADHD, and while I didn't find out I was on the ASD spectrum until after very shortly after this was written, I wouldn't be shocked if he was on the spectrum as well.
I may revisit him in the future, but I want to look at women who were likely neurodivergent for now since they tend to get looked over. I have several ideas that may or may not actually happen. Tis ADHD life. Hahaha.
