Im 22 and was diagnosed at 17. I can't help but get upset when i read some of these posts from older people going through the same thing. Like, it never gets better? Then I read from younger people and it breaks my heart because I can relate, I know exactly how they feel when they say "im at war with myself." There is absolutely no one that gets it around you. Your friends try to help and try to be there for you. But, if you're anything like me it's embarassing to not be able to keep up with people your own age. I don't expect any of my friends to relate to the emotional battle I face day to day. Im at such a low point. I just want a little ounce of hope.
