Hey I was just thinking this could be an interesting topic. I will start us off by sharing mine:
1. Agoraphobia- fear of open places ie: outside
2. Social Phobia- .. rather self explanitory I think
3. Clinical Depression- yay for medication
4. Anxiety- pretty much that I worry alot

I take Paxil and Welbutrin and they help lots but I still have things I need to do to help myself..

So who else wants to share ^.^

They make me worse. Must be my metabolsim or summat. Dunno. I've tried many different ones, and they didn't work, so I had a few days 'tour' round the local mental hospital. I'm ok know, nowhere near is bad as I was, but it's always gonna be there unfortunately. biggrin.gif

I feel the urge here to be a bit cynical about the medical profession as it stands currently. We seem to have come to a point where itt all seems to be 'better living through chemicals' and that strikes me as a very sad thing. While there are many chemical disorders that drugs are a good treatment for there seems to have been a loss of emphasis on simply talking things through with friends. While we are told that a trip to the doctor will cure all I think that a good chat about what is on your mind with your mates is the first step. If that doesn't help then go to the doctor, but your friends know you, and generally want you to be happy. Chemicals are not always the best choice.

seem that these days people are using therapy and meds. not to mention that talking to friends is good but a counciler is able to read people and their emotions better. ummmm I am taking meds but I am also trying to work on the underlying cause of my discomfort in public situations.

Oh, I agree that people with training have their (very important) uses. I just worry that we're being conditioned to seek medical help before talking to people who care on a personal level.

I have bipolar disorder, seasonal effective disorder, social anxiety and a pretty bad Oedipus complex. Despite all these, I am able to lead a happy, healthy life with treatment and counciling. What I don't like is how the meds I take for bipolar disorder hinder my creativity. I'm thinking of one day going an entire year unmedicated for the sake of creativity. I would need someone to take care of me, though, and the last person I knew who could do that told me that we couldn't get married because I was too controlling and reminded her too much of her dad. Jeez. No wonder she bangs so many girls. Anyway, that's my messed up head. My family has a lovely history of mental illness. My mom suffered from clinical depression, my great uncle, second cousin and late great grandfather have bipolar disorder and I believe there's a schitzophrenic in my family.

I can only believe in what happened to me, and that is that only you can bring yourself out of a disorder such as depression, etc. I was seeing a therapist for quite some time, and he kept going over the same things that were in my life, yet nothing helped, my family and friends helped a bit, but the only person who could help me, was me. I had to get things right in my head, and I had to sort my emotions out, and re-prioritise and re-organise my life. It took quite a while, but as I have said, I'm better than I was, thank god!

Here's my grand list :

bi-polar disorder
ADHD ( you have ADD if you LOOK at someone wrong )
schizotypal personality disorder
borderline personality disorder
dependancy personality disorder
anti-social personality disorder
clinical depression
manic depression ( wtf. I'm pretty sure they contradict eachother. stupid psychiatrists. )
histrionic personality disorder

I've taken a slew of chemicals for them since the grand age of four years, but at the moment, I'm not on anything. Besides the mood swing issues, I feel pretty ok. DPD is an issue, though.

"People with histrionic personality disorder are constant attention seekers. They need to be the center of attention all the time, often interrupting others in order to dominate the conversation. They use grandiose language to discribe everyday events and seek constant praise. They may dress provacatively or exaggerate illnesses in order to gain attention. They also tend to exaggerate friendships and relationships, believing that everyone loves them. They are often manipulative."

Your basic somatoform disorder. Think hypochondria with a wider spectrum.

well, i'm a little obsessive compulsive, but nothing serious. unfortunately, i can't be certain that i'll stay ok- paranoid schitzophrenia runs in my family and it usually doesn't show up 'til you're between 14 and 35 years... i'm 21... sad.gif is ironic to be paranoid about getting paranoid schitzophrenia? laugh.gif

The only one in my family with a problem is my dad. He's Schitzophrenic. So I might have inhereted it. Lucky lucky me!!

Now me, I had six distinct personalities when I was younger. I never went to psychiatrists or anything because my family thought I just had really really well developed imaginary friends. Who lived inside me. Who talked to them. Yeah, perfectly normal. I figured out I had multipal personalities years after we'd all merged back together. Or at least I think we merged back together. Anyway.... So I've got lots of neat memories of switching between personalities to play games like CandyLand and stuff. It never got lonely, that's for sure!

Nowadays I'm just depressed. But it's getting better. In fact, I think it might totally go away when I get to college. Get away from my family problems.

It can, I guess. Unless mothers stop existin altogether... Either that or me friend lied...

I have arachnophobia an claustrophobia, both caused by a mother who felt teachin me to behave was done by lockin me in the cupboard under the stairs. No light, all those spiders, enclosed space... it still scares me now an the last time it happened to me was 24 years ago...

Another one I got from that an from school is the desire not to be alone. Well, alone isn't the right word... I guess I mean isolated. The thought of bein somewhere an nobody knowin or carin about my situation worries me.

I once saw a "Tales of the Unexpected" - it was some woman tryin to escape from prison. She hit on the idea of bribin the undertaker chappy to let her climb into the next coffin, an he'd dig her out. Plan goes off really well till she lights a match an discovers the undertaker is in the box with her. I can feel the hairs on my neck stickin out as I'm typin this, so ya can prolly imagine what went through me mind when I watched it... it's the only thing I've ever seen on TV that gave me nightmares, cos it preyed on every one of me darkest phobias...

No, I don't take anythin, an I've never seen a shrink. I guess it's way too late now anyways...
