Hello I'm New

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

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!

I don't know my left from right

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?

I'm new here!

Hi, my name is MyGalSAL. I'm here because I was diagnosed with ADHD at 61. I'm probably autistic, dysgraphia and dyscalculia both scream my name.
