It's made me stronger and I did beat it at one point...(in hish school) I told myself I didnt care anymore and then I didn't. It took every ounce of my energy but to me it was worth it because people realized how awesome I was once I was able to show my potential. The important thing was that I knew I was awesome and that I had a lot of smart things to say, and I am glad that I got to show people that person. I did relapse when I came to college, but Im working on it. People seem to be ok with the fact that I dont talk very much, although they seem to feel bad for me. But I dont want sympathy I just want people to treat me the same as anyone else, because I am.
There isn't a problem with us, or the people that we are, its just that we have trouble carrying out/communicating our personality. I don't really understand why completely, but thats okay. We have to just be out for ourselves and play to win! Sounds corny, but true!
