I was wondering if anyone here suffers from any disabilities. I suffer from many mental disabilities, Schizophrenia, ADHD, Bi-polar disorder, and multiple personality disorder etc.

Even though delusions are rather uncommon, delusions are just mostly voices in your head. Nothing more nothing less or maybe my lack of imagination just ruins it for me. Even though I sometimes have extremely sexual thoughts.

Hypoglycemia, which causes Anxiety and Depression. Having other mental problems because of it though. Rare conditions have a hard time getting help for...joined support groups until the doctors figure it out. Have another appointment with a specialist on Thursday.

My sister has same diagnososi after many tests and wearing some kind of heart monitor was amazing with her form of Hypoglycemia she is treating it with 100 percent diet. PS- she was really scared and had lost hope / she cried a lot but good news she just carry's food around with her like every where so far all levels are good and best part she is smiling and happy. Fight ON!

Yep I eat often and and on a diet. I'm much healthier than I was years ago, but I'm still having issues now and then and I'm thinking my younger undiagnosed years fucked something up. Way better than I was though. Just getting more tests done and I do a lot of self monitoring.

Doctors really don't know a whole lot about it though, I've been misdiagnosed a couple times.

Sometimes in my humble opinion getting knowledge from other forums from people with same medical conditions and using that with Quack Doctors diagnosis makes you feel a little saner you have to ask question cause lawyers tell MDs to be quiet about volunteering any info totally sucks ass

I've had these disabilities since birth, I have just gotten used to it. Other people? Not so much, usually I only tell my friends about these issues.

I had hypoglycemia for a number of years until my pancreas gave out and I got pancreatitis for eight years. After living in pain for those years I finally had my pancreas and spleen taken out. Oh yeah since I don't have a pancreas I'm now diabetic. Not eating sugar or carbs does wonders for both of those

It really does, I've been on a support forum. Hearing the exact same problems from people with it makes me feel a lot less crazy. They've been super helpful. Some people really have it worse, I was lucky to have had a low FBS to get a tip off before I started working. I was a real mess beforehand: driving places and not remembering how I got there, night terrors, night sweats, chronic migraines, hallucinations, irritability blah blah blah. It was awful.

It's such a rampant problem these days...

Ive got anxiety and depression and also suffer seizures on a regular basis due to the lobes in my brain not working as well as they should if i dont take my medication. Dont know if color blindness counts as well but ive also got a type of color blindness and its enough of a pain that id consider it a disability.
