Any of you have any disorders/mental illnesses/disabilities?
Posted 10/4/14 , edited 10/5/14
So, I thought it would be a good idea make a thread for all of you people out there who have any disorders/disabilities/mental illnesses/etc. This is a thread where you can talk about your problems, tell your story of how you overcame your disorder/disability/mental illness/etc, or talk it through with someone who understands.

As for me, I have a few disorders, but none of them are as serious as some people may have them. First of all, I have biological depression. This means I was born with depression, and I might always have it, and it's likely that my children (if I ever have any) may end up having it as well. It used to be really bad for about two years, but I think I've gotten much better. I used to break out in tears everyday at school, and a lot of the time I would start hyperventilating. Now, I hardly ever get sad, or cry. I still get offended pretty easily, but I never let it show. I also have anxiety. My anxiety and my depression kind of go hand in hand. Because of this, I'm a very nervous person, but I can still control it. I also have nervous tick disorder. This means that sometimes, if I get very nervous, my hand or neck or whatever starts twitching. And lastly, I have ADD. I'm sure most people know what this means, but I'll explain anyways. ADD basically means that I have trouble focusing.

Please refrain from arguing with people in this thread. Don't make fun of people in this thread. I cannot stress this enough.

Hmm.. I have a certain amount of OCD.. Not sure if that counts though hehe. I've had pretty bad anxiety from a young age, but I think I am overcoming it.

I have these really violent urges to hurt random person on the street that suddenly appear in my brain for no reason since i was a kid. Most of the time after those thought came in, i just tell me "WTF Dude, why would you do something like that, you will get in jail for that" and never acted on it. Funny thing is that i really hate over violence and gory anime which is why i avoid Attack on Titan and many animes that are mentioned to be good but got a lot of violent death and body counts.

Well I know I don't have add/adhd (at least I am 99% sure I don't) and in regards to the OCD, I do have a certain amount of rituals I have to perform to feel "right" so that is somewhat up for debate. lol.. I have gotten to the point where my OCD doesn't get to me as bad though, and I believe I am slowly conquering it.

I have end stage (stage 5) kidney disease (failure).
I have ADD, ADHD (apparently debunked as an illness), used to have EPS (Encapsulated Peritoneal Sclerosis), right now I'm on dialysis 3 times a week, so that's my disability.

It's honestly not too hard to deal with, although sometimes I get those thoughts of depression and 'why me' and whatnot, but all in all, I'm okay with it.

15 years of dealing, and strong!

Believe it or not, I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome when I was younger, but it turned out to be a false diagnosis, and we only found out when I got older when I went to several different doctors, all of whom concluded that my old doctor was wrong. So I lived for half of elementary school, all of middle school and half of high school thinking I had Asperger's Syndrome, and was treated as such. It kind of sucks.

An Addictive Personality. That's it. The Wonderful thing about it, is that THESE DAYS, I at least allow Myself to become Hooked on things of which are Positive, uplifting, and Optimistic. 7 Years Sober, although each and every Minute it's a reminder that Relapse is but ONE Bad decision away.

I WILL NOT allow Myself to descend down into the deepest Darkest corner, at the Bottom of Your "Bottom"...Wallowing in anguish, misanthropy, Hate and destruction; Raked with chaos. The darkest deepest point of Human suffering and battered humility. I Used to be the One Who said, "Yeah, I have..."This...THIS...This...and THIS." That was denial. It was Drugs causing Me to feel each and every One of all of the inadequacies, pain, isolation, and anxiety that I experienced.

People CAN Change...Yet, You have to want it more than literally ANYTHING ELSE in Your Life. If You hesitate a single INSTANT, You're doomed to Failure. I was One of the Lucky Ones. I WANTED it. I stopped blaming Everybody and Everything else in My Life for that anguish and doom that I constantly felt and carried with Me. Now, I'm going on 7 Years into the Profession of Psychiatrics; I begin My Psychiatric Residency next Spring! Don't give up. And remember, it's not a BAD thing to ASK Someone that You trust for Help. Keep up the Faith, Guys and Gals of Crunchyroll! I Love this Site, and each and Every One of It's Members. You're all BEAUTIFUL People...And don't let ANYONE convince You Otherwise!

I just have hyperacusis which pretty much means noises above a certain frequency are amplified and as such incredibly painful to hear. It can be anything from a person sniffling, to a baby crying. I physically cringe when I hear that sort of stuff.
