Losing friends

I get on really well with people when I am in front of them. I find that I loose contact with people who I thought were really good friends. I am fed up with my anxiety and depression stopping me from having friends. I am in college at the moment and I feel like I don’t fit in. I feel like I am not meant to have friends. I look at my sisters and all the friends they have and I feel like I have done something wrong in life.

The genetic testing revealed that I have a gene mutation called MTHFR which basically has a huge effect on how my body is able or not able to metabolize… read more
