it was great having ...

I'm not sure what this is, but it's bothering me.

So, there was an event a fair amount of months ago that left me.. different? At my school we went to a camp for three straight days for science class. The experience was very mentally draining for me but it happened more slowly. I was not able to sleep at all. I would stay in my sleeping bag staring at the cabin ceiling for the whole night. It was like this for the two nights ...

I have more symptoms then this is I really dug down but these are what came to mind in a minute or two of thinking.

I don't know if it's the correct term or concept to use in what I want to explain/ask, but from the little bit I did read before typing this down, it seemed like the closest thing.

In my many hours spent staring at the walls of my room, distracting from destructive thoughts in the few ways I know how, I often tell myself that with all of the "free" time I have (free being in ...

facial weakness, duchenne smile and facial expression

Since my neurological diagnosis ...
