a teenage girl who suffers from adhd moves to a whole new neighborhood where the portrayal of society cannot accept her disorder. because of this, she encounters numerous problems that will change her entire perspective based on her troubled life.

candies: an original story

my name is tia. i am a 16 year old girl.

i was born and raised in the dallas-suburb town of frisco.

I've lived a normal life for my entire childhood. a family that has cared for me all my life...

friends that supported me....

...and enjoying what life has to offer to me.

until my 13th birthday....

ever since i moved out of my former neighborhood on that day, i experience a whole new society that i wanted to regret, but then... i somehow... can't.

as i came to my new school, i got bullied severely. i have often dealt with verbal abuse, being left out from others, and harassment. but i question myself, why?

the main reason that i was bullied because a so-called "friend" told my biggest secret to other people all around the school.

she told everyone that...

she told everyone that... i have adhd.

people from my old school accepted my disorder.

people from my old school accepted my disorder. but right here....

people from my old school accepted my disorder. but right here.... in this hellhole...

people from my old school accepted my disorder. but right here.... in this hellhole... it all sounds like a vivid nuisance.

after that happened, i experienced the depths of melancholy. i wanted to change badly as a human but... my ceaseless mind of sorrow and anxiety empties the jug.

i always felt alone. no one was able to reach out to me due to my adhd. not even one person said a single "hi".

outside of school, i also encountered family problems as well. when i was 14, both my parents divorced after my mom found out my dad has a second marriage. i still remember the innocent tears that hid my mom's beauty. she adored him desperately as if he was her missing puzzle piece.

despite all my problems i faced, a person finally came to my life to brighten my gloomy realm. she first reached out to me just a couple of weeks ago.

her name is katheryn. she was my angel. :)

as we hanged out, katheryn seemed to distance herself away from her other friends and instead focused on me.

katheryn told me that she felt uncomfortable hanging out with her friends and she perfers hanging out with me more. she even felt sorry and gave me comfort from what i have faced after i came to this neighborhood.

she told me to distract myself from all of my problems by pursuing new hobbies, talents and interests. she would even tell me jokes to cheer me up. i started to realize the reincarnation of hope.

just today, she gave me a wrapped present with ribbons.

i unwrapped it and the gift was a small ziploc bag of candies. the candies kinda resembled like those chewable jamieson vitamin c supplements i would take often.

there was also a note attached to it saying: "dear tia. thank you for being a best friend to me. you truly are one hella queen!"

"i understand that you got called names by people calling you weak, pathetic, a loser... just wow! i'm truly sorry to hear that."

"to cheer you up. i gave you a gift. it's your favourite snack, which are candies."

"i hope you enjoy this piece of offering from me. eat as many as you can. see you soon, love! :)"

that note... really meant a lot to me. i have to thank katheryn later at school. i opened the bag of candies and...

i ate a piece.

i ate a piece. then another.

i ate a piece. then another. then 5 more in one gulp.

i ate a piece. then another. then 5 more in one gulp. then 8 more in another gulp.

i thought to myself: "why do the candies taste weird but addictingly good at the same time?"

in just less than 30 seconds, i finished all of the candies in the bag. truly the fastest i've ever eaten.

but then, i felt a weird sensation to my body. i started to feel stomach cramps.

but then, i felt a weird sensation to my body. i started to feel stomach cramps. suddenly, my heart pounds rapidly. i can feel my head becoming dizzier every second and the cramps just got even worse.

but then, i felt a weird sensation to my body. i started to feel stomach cramps. suddenly, my heart pounds rapidly. i can feel my head becoming dizzier every second and the cramps just got even worse. then... for some reason, i can barely move.

but then, i felt a weird sensation to my body. i started to feel stomach cramps. suddenly, my heart pounds rapidly. i can feel my head becoming dizzier every second and the cramps just got even worse. then... for some reason, i can barely move. i cry for help, and.....

*loud thud*
