    I had a TMS consult today. Will be starting it in August for OCD! And off label C-PTSD as those two disorders are very intertwined for me. I did it for OCD and bipolar depression last year with success. So here’s to hoping it helps again!!

    Small Joys 7/8/2022

    Hey there, world. It's Friday 7/8 and after several weeks of pretty stressful things and big concerns about life and the world and the economy and everything, there are a few things I want to share that made me very happy today.

    First, my cat doesn't actually need the surgeries that I thought he would! He surprised both myself and his vet with responding well to a less invasive medical step. Yay! He's just a baby so not having to put him under anesthesia without absolutely needing to is such a relief!

    Second, Biden signed an executive order to go against SCOTUS's ruling that overturned Roe v Wade. I don't want to get into any sort of debate on here, but I'm just happy to see that reproductive rights are being protected because everyone deserves rights to healthcare and bodily autonomy.

    Third, I got a new fidget ring today and I LOVE it. I have OCD and I always thought that my fidgeting was just from anxiety, but I was also recently diagnosed with adult ADHD and it makes SO much sense. It physically hurts for me to try to stop my body from moving, there is some part of my body that is always moving (toes tapping, legs jiggling, fingers playing or tapping or picking, shifting in my seat). I am SUCH a fidgeter, and recently I decided to look into getting a variety of fidget rings to help try to manage my dermatillomania as I'm tired of making myself bleed. YAY. I ordered 4 different kinds of fidget rings from Etsy. I love all of them!

    I’m new here!

    Hi, my name is dutchgirl. I'm here because I think I have dermatillomania. I am wanting to learn more about it, how to treat it, and how to manage the shame associated with it. Looking forward to growing with you here.

    I’m new here!

    We’ll kind of new. I redownloaded the app after not using for a while. Hello! I’m a 29 year old phlebotomy student who struggles with some mental health disorders and wishes to connect with other people who can relate. I’m diagnosed with Bipolar II, Borderline Personality Disorder, Generalized Anxiety, Dermatillomania, ADD - Inattentive, and I also have a math learning disorder call Dyscalculia. I have struggled extensively with self harm and suicidal ideation, and have had periods of substance abuse. I used to struggle with Anorexia Nervosa but now it’s flipped to Binge Eating disorder. I have experience with being inpatient at psychiatric hospitals and residential eating disorder treatments centers. It’s weird being so transparent and vulnerable with my diagnoses but I hope to find a community here.
