I personally categorise all the mental disorders if I can.
I order them by: Phobia and Learning.

I've got Aspergers Syndrome. I can agree that people on places like Bebo or MySpace put ~Oh I got Aspergers Syndrome~ despite not having it, which is sad for us the people who do have it as we're given the wrong impression.

I myself am against medicines for such things like trying to cure Aspergers. Bad history with medicine (includes medicine being put in food).

I get you, man. In 2002, I was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome. I have a few issues with it around here though. Some people have even openly stated that they don't believe Asperger's exists and no matter how much you try to prove it they just say its an excuse to act like an asshole.

Now as fo meds and aspergers, why would we need that? There isn't anything wrong with us. We just happen to have eccentricities XD. Well thats the way I look at it.

I seriously wonder about myself. Since I was a child I've had terrible memory. I'd go to school with sweaters; hats, an umbrella if needed and I'd loose them ALL the time. It seems that when my environment relieves the need for certain equipment I do what any normal person would do and stop/detach it from myself because it would make me uncomfortable but I can never remember where I put them.

And as I started to grow up I would silently question myself. Why am I so forgetful? Why is my short-term memory so bad? Is this because I was a "teen being a teen"? I thought I was this way because I was lazy but when I talked to certain friends about it they told me only weed smokers would have a memory as terrible as that (of course I asked the question as a joke).

I also noticed how bad my concentration was. I was a borderline student who's made his way up through the system by a thread. I've had summer school, night school and was lucky to make it through High School; I had to go to an accelerated program to make up some credits so I graduated in 4 and a half years.

And what was really odd was how I managed emotions, particularly anger. I can't stay angry at anyone for long. And I noticed this because of the severity of some cases which one would have a reason to not even communicate with someone because this person has harmed/decieved you so much, yet I pass it off as nothing happened or not as serious. I've told people about individuals I had altercations with and when I tell them the conclusion and how I feel about it to this day, they become shocked and either pass me off as someone too nice or someone similar to a "buddhist ". And I wouldn't consider myself a nice person at all.

Now I am a young adult and when I reflect on myself when I'm alone I have problems. I still a borderline student now in college and that will not do. My short term memory has gotten worse. I can't concentrate enough to read more than a couple of pages at a time which I think it's because I have trouble possessing information quickly, and I daydream alot.

I was doing a paper about disorders when I found ADHD. I was shocked of the similarities of the inattentive sympoms. I mean, I always thought I had a problem but I never thought that maybe it could be a disorder. I thought that maybe I was too lazy to try harder. Maybe I could do small things like put the objects I am not going to use in a container or a bag, and carry a notepad to write down things to remember. But that still doesn't help other things like my concentration which is not getting any better.

I am convinced that I have ADHD but I refuse to seek help for many reasons.

1. I'm under my parents health care
2. If I told my parents they won't believe me

In the future when I become completely independent I wish to see a psychologist. But right now I can't trust telling family and friends this because I know I won't be supported.

I just hope I can get through college . . . .

When my dad was a kid they had a cure for most of those diseases?

It was called a good old fashioned beating.

Cost : 0 $

Comes in various colors and shapes, usually slaps, belts, sticks etc

Application once every few days, increase frequency and dosage if the conditions worsen.

The patient was usually cured by the age of 18, and was fit to succeed in life.

I truly hope you are having a bit of sarcastic fun with this tidbit. Yeah, I've heard such sentiments spewed in all seriousness, & to my horror !! No one who personally experiences & suffers from the anomalies within their brains, should ever be treated that way. The greatest suffering is that of the frustrations, confusions, anger, depressions, misunderstandings, ostracism, neglect, or many other possible challenges which the person may experience as a result of their particular brain anomalies. Punishment of the kind you offer is so unfair & rarely could it be called effective.

i once had a learning experience in a psychiatric unit.. i'm a nursing student and as a pre-requisite for my course i have to be assigned in a psychiatric unit.. i get to interact with them,,, my patient was having chronic bipolar disorder but despite his condition he can still perform basic activities like sweeping the dried leaves every morning.. when ever i get to talk to him, it was as if i'm talking to someone normal thought there were some instances that he displays signs and symptoms of being bipolar..we tend to joke around and laugh a lot but most of time we talked about the reason why he ended up inside the unit.. at the end of my termination, i was telling him that it would be the last day of my visit, he was so quite and didn't say a word.. i saw sadness in him and i myself was sad to.. for the four weeks of my visits there i was unconsciously getting attached to my patient.. though i know it should not happened but it just did... i didn't expect that to happened and until now, i still think of my patient whether his doing good or had his family visited him.. i wanted to visit my patient but due to hospital polciies, i can;t do it.. and since i can't do anything to visit him i'll hope my prayers for him will serve as his protection..
