Hi, I'm Laura and I'm 25. I'm not exactly grieving someone else. I lost my adolescence and a part of adulthood to schizophrenia and depression. Now I'm in remission. I enjoyed some time of it, but now that it's time for life to happen for me (instead to me), I'm grieving the time I'd lost. The worst thing is, I never know when it will hit me. I try my best to make up for non existent adolescence, but I feel a 14-year-old kid stuck in an overgrown adult body. As I'm typing it, I'm feeling particularly hopeless. I can't cope with the fact I'll never get that time back. I have nobody that can relate and my mourning pushes everyone away.
