I am a white able-bodied person with a decent job living in a 3 bedroom house with two dogs. How difficult can my life really be?
Forced social situations are easier for me than voluntarily committing to something. Meaning, it is easier to go to work and deal with being around people, than it is making or keeping plans with a friend to go for coffee or just hang out.
Friendships are easier for me to maintain if they are based on texting and keeping in touch via Facebook.
When I run low on food, instead of going to the grocery store, I will munch on whatever concoction I can come up with until I am emotionally on edge and have to go get real food.
Life is difficult because I am not living. I am barely getting by.
