This has always been an issue for me. Even when it comes to my disorder itself, I wonder if it's real or if it's something that I use to excuse my symptomatic behavior. I've had at least a couple peers tell me that I use my disorder as an excuse for being lazy and skipping… Continue reading tired or lazy? (i can’t tell.)
