You are right, its a touchy subject for me - one faulty ladder at work changed everything in my life. Any career choice I ever wanted in life became impossible to achieve.
It grinds you down and I often just sit and watch a clock while depression and certain thoughts nag at me.
That was a tough sentence to write and admit.

A healthy person believing they're actually disabled dffers from a woman believing she should be a man in what way, exactly? We need to stop normalizing and appeasing mental illness and aggressively treat it instead.

I believe in reincarnation, and there are times I've wondered if people like this are still connected to a previous life and can't get over the fact that they're in a new one. For example, I remember reading about a man who really felt like he shouldn't have a right arm, so he staged an accident that was severe enough to need it amputated. The only "logical" reason I could think of was that he was still attached to a previous life where he lived without that arm, which is why it felt foreign for him to have it in the first place.

Another Liberal group that will claim to be victims and need handouts. And receive special status. Bring back the sanitoriums.
