    Work was hard today. I was diagnosed with

    auditory processing disorder. The stuff my manager was telling me to do just wasn't sticking. Or I would hear it all wrong. I just wasn't understand what people were saying even though i was paying attention. It may be just fatigue. I don't know. I feel horrible.

    I got diagnosed with high functioning autism

    when I was 3, I showed some symptoms like I spoke my words when I was about one and a half years old. Then I didn't say anything 2 years later. I get bullied at school and tortured by a lot of people. I feel so alone it brought depression and social anxiety too. :-(
