You bit nosey eh !!!

Not asking for much. Lol

Well I got two diagnoses - I believe I have a third - I known personally a lot of people over the years with most the diagnoses you list but only by mixing with people with all diagnoses will you actually truly understand or learn about all the different conditions

At the end of the day in short though if you have a mh diagnoses at some points in your life, life will have been truly unbearable

The way it affects the mind or behaviour or personality can be different but ultimately any diagnoses takes time to understand, live with and then hopefully move onto a place where the condition has limited effect on your lifestyle and the individual can then hopefully lead a reasonably happy life with limited stresses.

Thats the theory anyhow !!!!!

Whats isteria ???

Do you mean hysteria - thats not a mh diagnosis as far as I know.

People can be seen to get hysterical which means they can massively over exaggerate a situations impact but not known as a mh condition as far as I am aware !!!!

Maybe I not up to date though !!!!

I'm sorry for being nosey.

Im out of here. Dont want to disturb. Also, dealing with people in suffering is not good for some of us.I understand why my poor psychiatrist was so happy to have a bipolar patient because the patient was singing dancing and cheering him up.

Hi and welcome, traumatic experiences can cause all the other things you listed in your original post.

Find a way to work through the traumatic experiences and hopefully the other things will improve as well.

Did you post because you have those diagnosed or because you are wondering if you have those? We cannot tell you for sure if you have those as we're MH survivors ourselves.

I'm sure about that, of course trauma can cause a lot of mental health problems. Trying to end a relationship with someone abusive, after that I will feel better.
I was diagnosed with anxiety, chronic stress, OCD, borderline personality disorder, bipolar, ADHD (in adulthood). I'm confused about the last 3 diagnosis, because they share some similarities...dont think I have them all.
Then, I have people in my life that have some mh problems.
Haven't asked anybody for a diagnosis here..

Hope you can end the relationship with the abusive person so you can then work on getting yourself more stable again.

Have you found any medication that helps with any of your diagnoses? I can understand how confusing your situation is because I'm often diagnosed with similar disabilities myself. You are correct all of those last three look like each other. But an ADHD brain will respond to ADHD medication differently to a none ADHD brain.

I also know people that have mental health problems. A friend of mine appears to have traits of a number of disabilities at once causing confusion amongst his diagnoses.

I always put in that disclaimer because in the past any suggestions that people might have xyz is misinterpreted as me trying to label people. Ironically the people accusing me of such a behaviour are ones displaying very similar traits to what is being objected about me trying to help people work themselves out.

Yes, some medication helped me in the past, but becomed sensitive to them (allergies, severe rractions) so I m trying to find something that is not causing problems and my doctor lower the dose of neuroleptic (2,5 mg) and increased the dose of antidepressant at its maximum. I also take sleeping pills.. It's hard, but I'm not giving up.
