You can still be in the world without being of the world. Try to find someone who can accept you the way you are, and can disregard society's norms. It'll be hard, and it takes time, but I'm almost certain that someday, someone will come along. Much love to you!!

I'm the same way. But I've found my value. You just have to find the right people. Trust me, it's hard, and it takes a while, but it's worth it.

Hey, guess what? You're insanely more valuable than you ever feel. When you think you're weak, there's someone you're holding up. There's someone that will need you, and you are strong enough, and you will be strong enough. Yeah, this sucks to have that. a lot.
For the anxiety, remember that you're alert to danger. My friends have warned me lots of times when something bad is brewing, because they're anxious to catch it, and me being an impulsive idiot means that they help me a lot xD
For the depression, that's hand-in-hand with the value stuff.
You are Definitely valuable.
There's lots of ways to function, and lots of people. Different people need different people.
I know people who don't need physical strength, or total agility. Whether they themselves have that or not. They need someone

Depends on the type of "value".

Emotional value is something else as a... work/money/job-value?

Someone can be emotionally attached to you, EVEN if you have trouble coping with depression and anxiety disorder.

Hanging out with outcast can help they don't care how well you function

Oh wow, ST. :tighthug: I really, really know that feeling. Both my sisters have MS, and I have hypothyroidism. It's so incredibly, hair-tearing-out frustrating. To remember what I used to be able to do, how well I used to be able to think, to see people around me doing things with their lives that I. JUST. CAN'T. It kills me, more than feeling like hell physically. It hurts like hell.

The only thing that I can do is to live every day as that day, as myself. Today, I lost 12 hours to sleep, lost more hair, but I read some, made some tasty food, had a conversation with my uncle. Tomorrow I may miss entirely to sleep. Next week, they may change my medication, all my hair will fall out, and I'll be even less functional than I am now. Next week, they may change my medication and I'll start to feel human again. I haven't been there yet, so I don't know. All I can do is live today as today.

Most people can't see what's wrong. They can't see the dark circles and the puffiness and the lack of coordination as anything but fat and lazy. They can't hear the intelligent person behind the slurred and stuttering speech, or the lost trains of thought.

But you know what? Fuck them with the fun side of a rake if they have no compassion for a fellow human being. I have value. You have value. And just because people can be assholes doesn't take that away.

Dear ST.
It's not going to be easy. But you'll have to face it. Just be strong and keep fighting. I'm sure someone around you will listen to you. And stay by your side after you tell him everything. Until you find this person, you need to keep fighting.
Be strong!

Secret Teller 13264, if you can look him up I'd suggest finding Tim Ferguson's show 'Cain and Able' or 'Carry a Big Stick' He's a comedian with MS. He might help you see that you are valuable.
I wish I could help you see that but I think Tim would be better at it.

You ARE valuable <3
Whether you function or not.

Here's a tip.
Forget about all the diagnoses for a minute. Just forget about them. Take some time, take a walk, enjoy life. You're so much stronger than a diagnosis <3

If you ever need someone to talk to, I'll listen. Feel free to drop me a note any time.

Nonsense, people don't have to function to be valuable. At least, not many people in my direct environment actually function.

Right now I see a talent for typography. Your secret is not only beautiful as it hints to hope (you want to be valuable), you also show part of your value in the way you present it.

Do not give up and work to become valuable enough for you to be satisfied with yourself, ST. :huggle:
