i think the worst part is not bieng able to function, or adapt into society, the severe cases in state hospitals where they can't leave, that or just waking up everyday and having a intense dysphoria about everything and then see the world happy, and you dread being unhappy

>and then see the world happy

You might think that if you were terribly unhappy. Envy piled on top.

Very true in my experience.

Intense dysphoria I understand. The earlier posts brought this to mind. Not that I want to promote Tennyson.

Alas! for this gray shadow, once a man
So glorious in his beauty and thy choice,
Who madest him thy chosen, that he seem'd
To his great heart none other than a God!
I ask'd thee, 'Give me immortality.'
Then didst thou grant mine asking with a smile,
Like wealthy men, who care not how they give.
But thy strong Hours indignant work'd their wills,
And beat me down and marr'd and wasted me,
And tho' they could not end me, left me maim'd
To dwell in presence of immortal youth,
Immortal age beside immortal youth,
And all I was, in ashes. Can thy love,
Thy beauty, make amends, tho' even now,
Close over us, the silver star, thy guide,
Shines in those tremulous eyes that fill with tears
To hear me? Let me go: take back thy gift:
Why should a man desire in any way
To vary from the kindly race of men
Or pass beyond the goal of ordinance
Where all should pause, as is most meet for all?
