So….my pdoc was supposed to write me a letter to get me accommodations for my apartment AND my schooling (because my apartment is NO DOGS and only allows me to move in with my Sadie with a letter (“prescription”) from my pdoc. They only wrote me one for my school.

does anyone know of any movies that i could recommend people watch?
all i can think of is neurotypical...which may be the only worthwhile one. but if there are more, let me know!
