    I am so disappointed

    that I'm just now starting college instead of going as soon as I graduated high school!! I would have been in my career field by now instead of just starting out. It is so stressful to think about. I wish I would have had been smarter..

    Very Behind.

    I am very behind in my life, in all ways. Developmentally, socially, everything. In all ways I am anything from 10-15 years behind everyone else my age. In some ways, even more than that. The older I become, the bigger that number gets.
