hey /b/, I have a question. How many of you guys have been diagnosed with a mental disorder?
Dubs checked, been diagnosed Bipolar 2, Schizoaffective, Soxial Anxiety disorder, Panic Disorder, Opiate addiction, Depersonalization Disorder,
My girlfriend has split personality disorder/schizophrenia for sure she was treated and so.....aand im in kinda the same situation i was just never diagnosed or went to a doc with it
wat u have?
how does she act? I know I have something, im just not sure yet. I have multiple personalities but I dont fit under the description completely. I also dont black out when I switch personalities. I think I might be a sociopath but who knows.
split personality disorder and schizophrenia are completely different things, your girlfriend is probably just a moody cunt
also I predict lot's of edgy sociopath and psychopath self diagnosis ITT
Indeed. i was to when i was a kid lots of ritalin. No help from the meds i got, stopped after 2 years. when they found out that i was a skizo and put me on some shit (can't remeber the name) until i was 15 i started on rivotril 0.5 mg. helped out on the skizo side. and ADD because i all doped up all the time. But if i stop taking it they will put me in the local nut house, and force me, So just skizo anon here (sorry for the bad english)
Sociopath. Never diagnosed officially (if even can be) but feel like kidnapping someone and killing them brutally. No feels for anything sept self, maybe my cat. Know I'm sociopathic but I'm fine(?) enough to know that I can't go crazy.
>also a published fiction writer
>no empathy=no relatable characters lmao
>do research and work out how my characters would react instead of self-inserting
>no complaints thus far
I use pot (sometimes have an adverse reaction, but it's worth it) for my symptoms during an episode and I go to church. Everyone there is crazy, too, but they're crazy friends.
Gender Identity Disorder. It's a real mental condition but instead of being treated with anti-psychotics, I take estrogen pills for HRT.
it was 23 pm i think. i was in bed and i saw this black person (all black with no face, not a nigga) and i talk to him and around 1 am i when't to show my mother (my new friend) And she told me nobody was. there and i kept telling her he was right there next too me. she filmed it and we when't to the phyco doctor thing, and they took a shit load of test. and they said i was skizo. but i was not that old so my mother pulled me out off school, until i was 15 and started taking rivotril.but was shit was there for 2-3 months i think. not been too school since. but the state is paying for me small 1 room aparment and food and meds and shit. so well its not all fucked up i guess
And remember- During depression, don't give up on her. During mania, she's always right, and you always know what she means. You will see what I mean and how it's different than other women.
It has. The best way I can tell you that you can differentiate is a pattern of the depression- especially triggering events. Also the random crying (for me, usually caused by thinking or remembering stuff)
The patterns of depression / hypomania is what led them to believe I was bipolar 2.
I dunno though, I've been on a slew of medications and I felt like they exacerbated the problem. I'm taking 200mg of Lamictal and 10mg of Olanzapine a day and I'm too scared to come off it to see if I can actually function properly without meds.
actual ptsd. I'm fine most days but I can't drive without nonstop scanning the road for IEDs. Today I almost lost it when I heard someone drop some sheet metal in a garage. Also got a long family history of schizophrenia, pretty much all the males on my father's side. If I have it I'll probably start showing symptoms by next year, I'll be 25 and that's about when they all started feeling it.
Yeah that was a problem I faced where I differed from others. It comes back, I hear, if you can get off of them without triggering an episode. Also, the symptoms are worse with skipped doses while on them. You have to weigh the risks.
I'm was told I've had depression since high school until I had a breakdown a few years ago. Come to find out I'm bipolar as fuck and the depression medicine was just making my problems. Shit sucks I have to go to the doctor once a month and keep getting my medicine changed or upped. This month I've felt the most stable but I've felt like a freaking psycho for so long like nobody could help me.
Spazz for years, now not so much. Bipolar was the underlying cause.
Nah, I'm not saying that. I'm saying fuck misdiagnosis and pros who don't take into consideration that they're dealing with life altering chemicals for people who usually want help from someone they can trust.
Im a hard working individual, I have a pretty successful career working insurance claims. i started getting a lot of shit from work, that i never really had time for myself. i worked shit tons of hours and i really didn't sleep much either. When i would manage to pass out i wouldnt really remember how i passed out or how i got to bed. i wouldnt really recall what i had done before hand. However, I apparently have gotten the attention of some people that i dont know. They nod their heads at me sometimes when i walk by and call me "sir" Occasionally. Its pretty weird. Anyways my alter ego started a fightclub and try'd to blow up credit card buildings. So now im in the loony bin hopped up on meds and browsing b with you fine people.
Diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder with Psychotic features. Shitty diagnosis but I have a myriad of symptoms so doctors got lazy and put me in that box.
On 4 medications and it blows. After my first break my personality did a 180 now i'm an antisocial faggot who has no friends besides my gf. Granted I have a 4.0 gpa but still, I feel like my illness has killed off the sociable, fun part of me. Now all I do is mope around and put all of my energy into school.
How do you love yourself again /b? I always feel like killing myself and I feel like i've been thrown on a foreign planet. How do I feel again?
i take 200mg lamotrigine as well!
when i frst started it, 25mg, it was a fucking god send. now im not sure it does anything at all; the positive effect always seems to wane away
I do that when people joke I don't understand. Figure it may have to do with my other issues. Depending on if I'm in a high or low cycle. Then hours after I've reacted in just like. Shit what the fuck did I do that for god dammit. Great for losing jobs.
Some what related i have ptsd. Ill get random panic attacks when im engaged in physical activities. I accidentally killed my older sister while wrestling. I literally choked slammed her through our living room table like in wwe.. now im afraid to even play soccer from with my friends. i can still remember the disgusting spine snapping sound
yeah, im learning to work around it. therapy is really helping. and im slowly going outside more and more. my therapist is challenging me to go to a gym and work out. im no fat or anything, its just the thought of a machine breaking and killing someone, or someone slipping by the pool and cracking their skull freaks me out. im afraid to go
i spend a lot of time inside the house as you could imagine. I watched about 5 minutes of final destination 2. for a while my therapist had to drive to me because i would be a passenger on the highway.
Mental disorders are nothing but fancy words so that people can make money off of you, of course, Parkinson's, dementia and stuff like that is obviously real, but depression, bipolar, ocd, split personality disorder etc etc is not.
There's nothing more to it than losers wanting a special snowflake stamp and people wanting to make money off such people
>someone is calling out on my bullshit so I better show him what's what by trying to insult him
If you guys can spend 200 replies talking about made up conditions to have people feel sorry for you then I can spend 1 calling you out. It's not like it will matter, the thread will die and you'll probably watch American psycho or take a personality test
Just because you don't understand something you call it bullshit. I suppose climae isnt real either right?.
>calling you out
By that you mean an uneducated dismissive assumption based on incredulity and ignorance? What makes you think the regulatory systems of moods in the brain can't possibly malfunction? Childishness? Your insistence is baseless.
A comparison like that is silly though, like comparing the existence of ghosts to life in the universe outside our solar system, ghosts are improbable and ETs are probable
Had to reformat because for someone reason my comment was spam
>replace ED with friends or yourself for your diagnostic criteria
Keep building your unique personality bro
Well I'm not gullible enough, nor pathetic enough to pay for medications I don't need, just to be special. So there's that
95% of all conditions in this thread would be cured by going outside and getting laid or/and a gf. no joke. The dude that killed his sister is excused though, I can't imagine what that would do to your sanity
According to your opinion. You have no basis for these claims. The scientific community would strongly disagree with all that edge of yours. I seriously hope you are trolling.
Just an update, I followed >>604643424 advice, I went outside and ran for a bit, felt like I burned off all the meds and bad toxins, now I feel great and in control. Fuck meds man, exercise is amazing.
Nah I've been to a Doctor and he diagnosed me using the DSM. You think I want to be a special snowflake you smegma smoocher? I go through more hell in one week than you do in your whole miserable life.
Plus you are the special snowflake in this thread so why dont you turn 720 degrees and walk off that cliff
The scientific community doesn't dabble in pseudoscience
dont worry, you'll grow out of it eventually, most people do after 16, usually around the same time the God complex and intelligence superiority complex go away
>doctor notices your levels are off and gives you a diagnosis so he can make money off of you
Damn that's some irrefutable evidence, I bet you go through loads of hell though, sitting in your parents/your home all day feeling sorry for yourself
It's all you have to do, go outside and do something
Waah he told me to grow up I better tell him he has a low tier job and no education
Sorry to tell you that I study actual science in an actual university instead of googling my symptoms, also, even if I don't work there personally, McDonald's is a great starting job that works as a good stepping stone for later jobs and also serves as a great source of income during college/university years. Way to be edgy and think everyone gets to work in their own office pulling 6 figures right out of highschool though
You are right, medicine isn't going to cure me. But it allows you to be stable while you work on yourself and exercise and eat healthy and fuck bitches.
But without medication, I wouldnt have gotten that little boost to help me feel stable
I have depression, but I so wish I had schizophrenia so I could have imaginary friends to talk to.
