Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 75 People

    Very, Very Rare. Except For Migraines.

    I rarely get sick.  Ever.  Be it a cold, cough, I don't get sick.  The past 2 years the most "severe" illness I've had was a cough and cold that lasted for 2 days.  The only thing I'm allergic to are crabs (I can eat any other kind of seafood). I do...

    People without a mental illness will never understand the severity of it. They have no right to talk. How would you like to battle your own mind every God damn day of your life?
