Default Do you suffer from more then one mental illness?

What are they?
Do you take medication?
Little things you do personally to help you manage?

What are they? I was diagnosed ADD at a very younge age. Later diagnosed with PTSD and Anxiety sleep dissorder.

Take meds? yes, isocarboxid (It`s an MAOI) I`m thinking of switching to EMPowerplus, (Check out the True Hope website for that awesome info!)

Things I do to help myself manage? We`re training my dog as a phychiatric service dog right now =]

I`m pretty open about my disorders, I enjoy educating people about the myths of mental dissorders, and that they`re not just for people who constantly attempt suicide or go to mental institutions, but that they can be regular people, just like themselves as well.

Probably.

I've been dealing with an eating disorder for years, i'm obvoiuslly either depressed or bipolar (IDGAF which) and.. well let's say past abuse has left a big impact on my persaonality.

beacuse of where im living, im not in therapy or on meds.
but, people you suround yourself with can be just as good. Friends who can 'get it', yknow?

Animals are great. I got a cat when i turned 13 (was spiraling downhill very fast) and that was enough to calm me down to a point where 'functioning as a semi normal person' was possible.


meh, my 2 cents. probably not what ya lookin for

Bipolar(manic-depression) & an anxiety disorder, idk if it has a name cause the psychiatrist just said I had a really bad anxiety disorder.

I take Cogentine(sp?) and Abilify.

How do I manage? That's the problem... I usually cut. But sometimes I'm smart and I write stories to take my mind off the real world. or I sleep.

Thats how I use to manage in the begenning. Except for the sleeping. I understand that it can be hard for some families, but finding a new hobby helps tremendously.

Not anymore really, but before I was diagnosed with depression. And they also said I had bad eating disorders, no real diagnose though. And well, almost all of the symptoms for both anorexia and bulimia.

Now I'm fine though, and I don't have any diagnose anymore. But I still take antidepressives, Sertraline (same thing as Zoloft), but I'll stop taking them soon..

Hope you all of you will get better soon, too!

Default Re: Do you suffer from more then one mental illness?

What are they? ASD (Aspergers), PTSD, Depression and minor Anxiety

Do you take medication? I take medication for PTSD, Anxiety and Depression but Aspergers i don't.

Little things you do personally to help you manage? To help with my depression i've got a daily journal I fill out every evening, I also make targets during the day. e.g. when i get up i make a target to get to lunch, then at lunch i'll make one for dinner and i'll carry on doing that.

PTSD theres not a lot that helps me cope with it, its a hard thing for me to deal with at times but the journal also helps with that. Also having a place or a person to vent to helps.

Anxiety is mainly around social aspects, so i tend to always have my ipod with me for distractions. I've always got to have a routine and a plan of what i'm doing that day, i get extremely uncomfortable when my routines are broken and it takes a long while for me to settle.

Aspergers i don't really need anything to cope with it, because tbh i've had it all my life i don't know any other way than to do what i do now. It ties in with the anxiety because of the social problems it causes it tends to fuel nervousness. So i kinda deal with it the same as i do anxiety.

There're some other things but i don't really feel comfortable adding them.

Do you take medication? Only for the first one. Too much.
Little things you do personally to help you manage? I'm not managing right now. Or I wouldn't be where I am.

Default Re: Do you suffer from more then one mental illness?

I'm currently diagnosed with bipolar disorder, social anxiety disorder, OCD, and DID. I personally think there's other stuff in there but I won't claim it unless a professional agrees.
I'm against medication for these problems. It might sound stupid and masochistic, but I've actually come up with good reasons other than wanting to keep the mental disorders
I actually don't do anything much. My main thing now that other people will do for me is play this playlist of fun songs I put together. After a while of doing the Time Warp and listening to other uplifting songs, I calm down remarkably well.


And I'm sorry I didn't build your walls. And I'm sorry I had to go and fall.
And I'm sorry I had the whole thing wrong. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.
And I'm sorry that you are feeling small. And I'm sorry that I'm not used to crawling.
And I'm sorry the writing's on the wall. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.

What are they? Asperger's, depression, some form of general anxiety (pych has never labeled it any specific disorder) Those are the diagnosed ones. I also suffer from bouts of paranoia and some delusions.


Do you take medication? Aplenzin 522mg/day


Little things you do personally to help you manage? I've carefully picked the people I've surrounded myself with. I've found people who can relate and help me.

If you ever need to talk, you can PM me. I can't promise I'll solve your problem but I'll do my best to help.

I'm a psychopath, no treatment so no medicine. I could be a schizophrenic but I believe it's a phase.

Just call me Juf

Default Re: Do you suffer from more then one mental illness?

I'm diagnosed with boderline personailty disorder, bipolar disorder, depression, severe anxiety disorder, a few learning disabilities, and OCD. I am currently told my psycologists and psychiatrist about my other self.
I'm on Zoloft now, was going to start Abilify with it, but I begged her not to put me on it. I'm starting on ADD meds soon .
I don't deal with it well at all. I cut mostly, when I can't I try to focus on losing weight. The positive way I deal is listening to upbeat music like the Dresden Dolls and take photos, because I love photography. Also writing poetry helps a bit. :3

Really bad depression, possible bi polar disorder, trichotillomania, OCD, insomnia, self harm, paranoia, anxiety, extreme stress, and not sure if this goes under depression but high suicidal tendencies - if I got my own way, I'd be dead by now...the pills didn't kill me

No meds

Little things I do...go on VT and get the fuck over it
