Mental Illness Support230
If you're living with a mental illness of any kind whether it be Bi-Polar, Depression, PTSD, Dyslexia, or even if you're like me and have anxiety it can get really sometimes, obviously some mental illnesses aren't as serious as others but I'd like to take this time to share some stories (good or bad) that have happened to you guys.
It can be a real pain to live with and its frustrating when people don't understand. For those who don't know I have anxiety and I suffered depression but I would rather not go into that.
So I guess this is a support thread or something I'm not sure. Ask advice on here or stuff like that feel free to say whatever you want that isn't insults or abuse
Dyslexia is not a mental illness, its a neurological condition/disorder
ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder
When I went to Uni I gained a bit of weight back - 10kg from drinking and drunk eating maccas. Although this, due to having an eating disorder I only found out 1 year later. I didnt realise i was starving myself or i did, but i didnt realise HOW SKINNY I WAS.
It was really difficult for me to put back on the weight. Just felt ugly and gross. At this time, guys stopped paying attention to me, so I felt like this was the reason why.
TODAY: I lost the weight again. Im not as skinny as I was, but have jsut been diagnosed with BDD, So the way i see myself and my body in particular/weight is a lot bigger than i actually am.
It is weird stating this online, as its not really something i talk to ANYONE irl too. But I wanna show that not everyone is perfect, and there is a bunch of underlying issues people face but might not front. AND ITS OKAY TO TALK XX
Ive never seen a pamphlet, we never talk about it in health class, never seen anything on the news.
Its a very underrated topic, that i think a lot of people struggle with
- Emotional lability refers to rapid, often exaggerated changes in mood, where strong emotions or feelings (uncontrollable laughing or crying, or heightened irritability or temper) occur. These very strong emotions are sometimes expressed in a way that is greater than the person's emotions.
but i don’t think i have any specific triggers like google may say you have with this
