If I were to compare our illnesses (even though I shouldn’t, because comparing oneself to others can be a source of misfortune), I would say: I am better equipped for social interaction, while you seem better equipped for independent living. Neither of us can hold down a job right now (age difference aside). Who’s better off? I don’t know… you seem to be bothered by your issues just like I seem to be bothered by mine. So it’s a stalemate
So you said you liked English in school. Who was your favorite English author (writer, poet… anything) during those times? And who is your favorite English author now?
My favorite English writer is probably Sir Arthur Conan Doyle or Agatha Christie. I admit my knowledge of English literature is far from complete: I’ve read some Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, Thomas Hardy, Brontë sisters… that’s about it.
