      Stress, teenage abuse
      Hello there, friends! :)
      My name is Orysia, I am from Ukraine, and I have been suffering from T for more than 5 years now. It started all of a sudden, and never stopped since that time. It gets worse or better from time to time, but it always stays somewhere there on the background.
      I have had quite a tough childhood. I lost my father when I was 9, and for a few years I tried to learn how to live with that fact. Back in school I was bullied and made fun of for the reason of being a bit different than the others were. I had no friends. I would usually spend time on my own. I could easily get hurt. I could easily be made to cry. In other words, I was a depressed, stressed, unhappy child. Of course, T made every single detail even worse at that point.
      I have tried everything that I could try or afford to try. These were different examinations, treatments, medical tests and diagnostic procedures. The only positive outcome of all of these is that I discovered that I have no serious illnesses to be worried about, and also some pills have helped me to manage the stress and sleeping issues.
      I can honestly say that I have learnt how to live with T. As to talk about this certain stage of my life, I am exactly the type of person I am supposed to be. I have my lovely family, my loyal friends, my hobby. I try to enjoy my life completely and perceive it as a whole. However, sometimes I do dream of hearing the clear silence again, over and over again I try to recall this feeling of all the sounds being away for some time. And this is the thing, the idea that makes me move on trying new therapeutic methods.
      I have already decided that when I heal myself I will help the others to do the same, for I know the way it actually feels.

      With all my love and support for you, friends! We will make it one day. ;)
