    Go get a job! Not as easy as it sounds.

    So I've been researching online jobs, and a full time or part time stable job online is just as hard to get as offline. I've applied for some costumer service ones but I don't have much experience in that so I'm not sure they'll hire me. In the meantime I've researched micro jobs and while the...

    I experienced hair loss when my symptoms started, but the hair grew back. Then I started having hair loss again while I was in collage and now it seems to have stopped. I think in my case it could have been connected with stress.

    Go get a job! Not as easy as it sounds.

    Yeah. I think not trying to understand is a big issue. A lot of people think that if they can do something then everyone must be able to do the same.

    Are you awake a lot

    I sleep 8 to 10 hours but always wake up a couple of times during the night. For a while I would wake up about every hour and when I finally woke up I felt more tired than before going to bed. But after I bought a better mattress now I only wake up like 3 times at night.

    Cracking joints

    Only my left knee. Every other joint is fine and I never hear any cracking. My mom also has problems with her left knee so I don't know if that has anything to do with it.
