    I want my life back. Now.

    I'm fed up with being so tired all the time. I'm fed up feeling like I don't belong anywhere. I'm fed up fearing to be judged by everyone around me since I'm not normal. I'm fed up pretending everything is normal when it clearly isn't. I'm fed up being emotionally numb, sweating, itching...
