My friends surprise me.
My anxiety friend, for example... when she had those panic attacks, I was thinking "My God, if you're freaking out about something as small as this,
how are you gonna survive if the world goes to hell?"
Then, the other night, we were all wandering around downtown, in a sort of dangerous part of the city. This tattooed guy came up and started talking
to one of my friends, and my anxiety friend stood between the tattooed guy and my other friend. She was being very protective, and very gutsy.
My bi-polar friend goes COMPLETELY insane when he skips out on his meds, but he can fight like a mother f%$#@#. The problem with him is, he fights
with my anxiety friend, and in a SHTF scenario, his outbursts wouldn't be tolerated. He blows his top about the smallest things, and the tiniest
little events make him want to attack people. I don't know how different he'd be in a SHTF scenario, but hopefully he'd surprise me too.
In my friend circle, my family, each of us has some kind of disorder--and they're all different.
One friend has anxiety, one has severe bi-polar, one of them is a mild schitzo, one has very mild autism, one has mild ausburgers AND is a mild
schitzo, and me personally, I have what's called ED. Emotional disturbance.
I have no idea what emotional disturbance means, what it consists of, or how it affects me. I was never educated about it. I was stuck with pills and
a week in the loony bin when I was 13, and that's all.
Honestly, I know less about my own chances of survival than any of my friends.
Does anyone have any clue what ED actually is...?
