Been struggling with this for a long time.

Feeling less than human just makes me want to isolate myself, but that's not the life I want to live. It's been like this far too long. Forcing myself out into the world is a painful experience, but the more I do it, the more tolerable it becomes.

Human interaction is also pretty huge. Once you loose that ability, it's hell to get that back. I've been lucky that I have friends, male and female that take the time to engage with me, because without it, I wouldn't have the foundation to really start addressing this. They drag me out of my shell kicking and screaming, and I'm so so thankful for that.
