    I don't know if I'm abused or not

    I always feel like no one listens to me, and being a social outcast makes it even harder for people to hear what I have to say. Mom always tells me what to do, and what are my dos and don'ts. I feel like I'm a puppet of hers only, and my cousins feel the same. They neglect our feelings, and are so moody, they are unpredictable. I just want things to stop already. We are planning to run away. Is it a good idea? Am I just overreacting ? I mean, this has been my lifestyle ever since I was a....

    Drowning

    Ever feel like your drowning? The world is overloading your plate, and no matter how hard you try its swallowing you whole. Your losing control and losing the people you grew up loving and that by society standards, are supposed to love you back. Lost friends. Lost family. Losing my home. I feel backed into a corner and like I'm losing an uphill battle. I'm drowning. The room is spinning, I have to much anxiety to open up to people. To talk about my problems.

    Fairly certain I'm schizophrenic

    So I know people are going to tell me that It's not likely but hear me out. I've been trying to find a diagnoses for severe hypersomnia for over a year, but my sleep doctors have given up on trying to figure it out and have labeled it Idiopathic hypersomnia, which is just medical jargon for: is sleepy, but we don't know why. Figuring that I still need a way forward, because 400mg of modafinil and 30mg of adderral feels like it's doing more damage than helping, I decided to talk to....

She would also become aggressive and loud, something very uncommon for mom. Over the course of 2-3 weeks, her episodes intensified. She would lay in bed for hours, eyes mostly closed....
