  1. Not to take any pride in this…But I guess I do exclude the high functioning. Simply because they are able to function at that level even with the same disorder as me, so I view myself as weak and lesser than them. Feeds my self loathing. I don’t like that. Who does?
    But it’s true. Mental illness does not discriminate in who or how it manifests.

  2. I over achieve. over ride emotions so as to not functioning as human.i don’t know anything other than matching blindly going through the motions/emotionless if you will. To the point of total shut down/crumbling emotionally (to me, breakdown sounds so commercial). I don’t dare say (*until recently) anything inside my fucked up mind.
