I'm new here!
Hi, my name is cherishkay. I'm here because
Hello! My name is Kathleen and I have a slew of mental health issues! At 16 I was tested at the Gifted Development Center in CO.
I have Sensory Processing Disorder
Auditory and Vision Processing Disorder.
At 21 I was in college but then I had a nervous breakdown, so I had to leave. Within the year I was diagnosed with rapid cycling Bipolar 2 with physio.
I am a Christian, homeschooled, writer and lover of literature. I also help out on my families homestead, Joyful Noise Home-in-Stead. I love animals 😻. This pic is with my new kitty Milo. He is a great emotional support buddy!! #loveanimals #Bipolar #SPDwarrior #poloarwarior
I'm thrilled! That's all!
I worked hard to navigate college and then graduate school with various disabilities, and somehow.... I did it! I am continuing to write a novel and now looking for a new job as I finish my mental health IOP !

Anyone willing to share their experience going on disability? I am really struggling to work and have been unemployed a lot more than I've been employed... I have Bipolar I disorder, Autism, Complex PTSD, generalized anxiety, OCD, ADHD, learning disabilities, a tic disorder, and a personality disorder. Plus eating disorders and addictions that I am working on recovering from. In addition, I am having some physical health concerns and am going through gender transition. No wonder I'm overwhelmed!
It's called dyscalculia and spLD and I only found out I had it in 2019 despite being diagnosed aged 5.
My family, as a young adult never sat me down and made me understand 'hey, your mind works different to other peoples'' and I am still navigating that now as a 28 year old woman.
Like don't get me wrong, I am relatively alright. Full time job, semi functioning in society. But, every now and then I wonder - did my dad's stigmatic attitudes to that contribute to me having anxiety and all the pain I went through elsewhere?
