Because I am self-pitying
Because I have an undetected illness such as MS

    Hey, feeling rubbish isn’t a competition! There’s nothing to feel bad about at all in analysing our experiences. If only more people did! By questioning what’s happening to you, you’re not giving up, you’re fighting for control.
    Some of those possible theories you cite are pretty scary. Please don’t worry too much (I know that’s easy for me to say, but you know what I mean). Maybe you were selected by aliens for experiementation because of your superior rib-tickling skills and you’re just experiencing the side effects of making the universe a funnier place? Keep writing missus.
