Hi everyone. I'm new to the board. I get lonely (housebound), but it can be trying to phone people. Most of the time I can forget that there are things going on outside these walls. I dunno. It's been raining for several days and the weather's starting to get to me. I have some candida too. My eyes are stinging, and I'm nervous and more tired. Talking to 'outsiders' can get me down any time, you know? Like, there are the people who think you can fix yourself if only you do this or that. People who make you feel more pathetic by just being sorry for you. People who think you can snap out of it and pull your life together. I started getting sick in high school... and I'm 23 now. Never got to have a job. All my stuff is so expensive, and my dad has to pay for it. My mom died when I was 7.
