Imaginary Friends - And Other Stories From the Hospital

A dystopian future in which everyone with a mental or physical difference is shipped off to the Hospital to get "cured".

Also a social commentary.

The first "chapter", Imaginary Friends, was originally a single story, but then I had other ideas and decided to write more stories about people in the Hospital. It's also a way for me to try writing from perspectives I wouldn't usually.

Conditions described in these stories:
- Synesthesia
- Cotard's syndrome
- Hemispatial neglect
- Urbach-Wiethe disease
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Lesch-Nyhan syndrome
- Peripheral neuropathy
