Well, I have anxiety, which have giving me lots of trouble.
I also have hard ADHD, which also cause problems.
Not really anything else, I guess.

Having red hair.
And feeling sad for no reason what-so-ever.

depression. just last year, my mom wanted me out of the house. one night, i had gotten angry with her being a bitch to me in front of my relatives. i bitched on her too. she followed me inside my room and punched me, kicked me, pulled my hair and shit. i kicked her for self-defense, and she goes around telling family members her side of the story. i became the bad guy and i had no one to talk to. i wasnt close with my siblings and they were avoiding me. my dad was always away, either at work or at a meeting. i only could speak to a couple of close friends about it. they saw my bruises, and not to mention a minor black eye. they told me to move out but i couldnt. i didnt have the money, plus my relatives were all "fight about money" kind of people. i even talked to a couple of adult friends, but they just told me to never fight back, because it would be used against me... and they were right anyway. i felt so depressed i wanted to commit suicide. but my best fiend brought me to the university chapel one day and told me to pray with him. honestly felt good, for some reason. that same best friend (actually also my bf ) helped me get out of my depression too. something somewhere changed my mum suddenly. ive been living the good life with my family ever since, with my mum bitching out but seldom hurts me anymore (which is as good as it ever gets)

You'd be surprised at how trivial these things really are.

Aside from what I dealt with regarding my father I would have to say currently it is just dealing with my disease when it gets bad. The medicine I am on has already had to be increased and there aren't that many other medicines to try before surgery will be necessary. I worry about it because I know I will refuse to have the surgery done and don't know what will really come from that.

My current hardship right now is that im 20 years old and will be turning 21 this March and i'm only 5'4 and I have a babyface. People always view me as a 16 year old kid and don't take me seriously. It gets in the way of finding a girlfriend


That's a small issue.

Sorry, I had to. Take it from me who is also quite small (And if I didn't grow my beard out to look full hobo I cannot get anything without ID), but anyone who would judge you on criteria like height (unfortunately most people) probably isn't good for you anyway. Shame it's such a shallow world we live in.

I'm also reading every one of these. I can't really offer much help, but life is always a story worth hearing.


I didn't ask you

My house got foreclosed in 2008 and I was homeless for a couple weeks. Thus far, it was the most depressing time of my life.
I had been depressed prior to the foreclosure and after it happened, I didn't get any better. I tried to take my own life at one point but eventually, things turned around and I've become a much stronger person.

I once made a promise to someone very important to me that I knew I probably would not be able to fulfill. Yet I knew I would spend the rest of my life trying. Not one single day goes by that I do not think about that promise or the one I made it too. It's been seven years and I have made so little progress. So little...

Depression and cutting myself, does that count?

^I think red hair is pretty bad ass, personally.

And my worst hardship was being so shy I felt like I was closed off from the world. However, after a few crappy instances I experienced in my life, I said 'Screw this!' and started talking with as many people as I could. The joys of life just came rushing in and I've been pretty good for years now.

Same here!
I have panic attacks frequently, but I've had to take therapy and meditation classes to learn to calm myself down.
Sometimes it doesn't work, so when I get them during school, it's pretty embarrassing. I end up going to the bathroom, hoping no one is in there to clam myself down.
I don't take meds as much for my ADHD, because it changes me. No matter what it is. I don't like to feel uptight. All though I can't concentrate all the time, it sure is better then being irritated!

I've lost two family members and a friend this year, on top of that, I am in a very hostile work environment. The work environment has become so toxic, that the president of my union local is coming himself this week for a meeting with HR, management, and me.

I literally feel like my entire world is falling apart around me.

My greatest hardship is clearly my bad personality. Nearly all my troubles have been self-inflicted.
I love this response, though:

Wrapping my head around the 10 step process of glycolysis was... freaking mind shattering, and the worse part is that I have to remember ALL 10 steps and what happened in each one for the exams. It was crazy, I'm telling you.

The 10 steps of glycolysis are cake compared to photosynthesis. Stupid plants. But seriously, you've gotta know glycolysis. You learn the basics in Bio 1, and then by biochemistry you've got to memorize the steps, the structures, and the enzymes for glycolysis and other metabolic processes, like gluconeogenesis and ketolysis. It is surprisingly useful in daily life, especially if you're a drinker.

Interesting fact: goldfish can live in unaerated bowls using only anaerobic respiration by fermenting pyruvate into ethanol in a similar manner to yeasts. The ethanol diffuses from their gills into their surrounding water, so they maintain a safe blood-alcohol content.

Goldfish water is not a recommended adult beverage.
