“I've always been very serious about my studies, and had career goals set up since I was 15. Now that I'm finally at a point where I can do the things I've always dreamed of doing, I can't bring myself to get out of bed anymore. It's come to the point where I don't think any one around me would define me as "smart" or "intelligent" anymore. And it's always just been such a huge part of my identity, and there's just so much struggle involved in getting to this position. I hate myself so much rn.”
