For me it would be my constant headaches, stomach aches, jaw pain and shyness. I especially don't think people could understand how bad ones jaw could hurt, you wouldn't think it would that big of a deal. But, it's more painful than you can imagine.
So, what do you go through that you feel people don't get?

social anxiety, shyness. I think I have become a bit uncaring because of it. also, when adults talk to me about doing adult things like getting full time career or moving out, they don't understand how hard it is these days, and what kind of competition there is0

There is always someone out there who understands, even though everyone's situation is not identical. There are people out there going through similar things who can empathize with you and that can offer sympathy and compassion. It is just being lucky enough to find that person that can be tricky. You have to allow yourself to be vulnerable and the other person has to do the same, otherwise, it does not feel as if they understand. When you truly find that in another person it is life-altering, especially for those that truly feel misunderstood.
My struggles are ones that have haunted me for a long time. I have myriad of health problems and have lost a lot of people close to me, including both of my parents. I often feel as if I am trapped in my own body because of my physical limitations and in my own house because of my anxiety. The thing is, I am a very extroverted person and being around people is absolutely necessary for me. My anxiety spikes from my physical limitations. I am lucky enough that I did finally meet someone that I feel understands me, as I do him. Sometimes, I feel as if he understands me better than I understand myself. It has made dealing with all of this a lot easier.0
