You may think I'm just listing mental disorders

And I sort of am.

These disorders have one connection.

Me.

I have all of these, and possibly more.

I hear voices

I hate myself

I can't ask for anything

Everything has to count up to a specific number

Everything has to be clean

I see things

I am easily distracted

I can't focus

And people scare me.

People bully me.

But no one understands the real me.

They don't know why or how,

They don't care.
