I just want a diagnosis

About almost every week I have an episode or complete paralysis. I go to a high school and I see the nurse all the time.

Today I had an episode so bad that the nurse had to come in class and pull me out. Luckily my boyfriend was there and my dad came. Now I have to go back to the doctor.

I’m just scared. I want this to be over with. I don’t want people to see me like this. It’s just hard. My friends my family the nurses my teachers and of course my boyfriend worry about me.

I’m just going to have my fingers crossed that this appointment gets somewhere. 🤞🏽

My adult grandson is gay he is also mentally challenged help! #Bipolar 1-2 #ADHD #mentally Challenged severe #socially Inappropriate

This is alittle different.
I am the Guardian of my grandson. He's 25 yo. He currently lives in an APD home with several other clients. For years I've known he was gay. Sadly due to him wanting to be like his straight (aides) he always purchased "girlie magazines". Trying to get the B.A. (behavior analysts) to understand his real needs and reduce his frustration (which shows up as raging). I needed someone educated in that area get him what he really wants. Finally that was done 2 yrs ago after I spoke to head BA. His behaviors have improved.
Moving forward how do you suggest I make sure he's getting his needs met? They are only allowed to masturbate using visual stimulation. Staff does change. They are not allowed to have sexual encounters. "I offered to pay for an escort service" but he would be kicked out of the program. This is sad indeed. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

When childhood abuse leaves you mentally ill, & society throws you away.

The more I work with the mentally ill - abused when children #Bipolar , #BPD , #Depression , and more, as a #councillor and one who has these illnesses too, due to obscene #Childhood trauma, of which I’m on the mend thank goodness.
I’m no longer surprised at the horrifying abuse my clients have been subjected to when they were children, leaving them with mental illnesses, Rather, I’m sickened, with a deep sense of fury , lost on how utterly cruel, and evil their parents or family members who perpetrated the abuse are.
The abuse I suffered for years as a small child, leaving me with borderpolar, which I’ve spent years recovering from, I’m no longer angry about, it doesn’t affect me anymore, but I do still have borderpolar
My years of studying, & working on myself, helped me. I learned that healing comes when we let go, and move forward, and this helps my clients.
My point is a serious concern, about HOW is its possible, to prioritise things like #black LIVES MATTER, or #fighting CANCER, or #the WAR ON DRUGS etc, which DO matter, and ARE important subjects, needing attention, , but where’s the headlines, the hype, #help , #Care or #concern for children ( now adults) - who've been #brutally abused? And the circumstances have left them #mentally ILL as a result? And who are mostly #Homeless , #addicts to numb the pain. Who society has thrown away?

It’s not OKAY! The priorities surrounding #mental ILLNESS, don’t exist. Rather, they’re #PUNISHED AGAIN, #vilified , #abused and more,

It’s overdue, long overdue, to make headlines, hold fundraising events, highlight and educate people on #mental ILLNESS, and DO SOMETHING real to help, , to do your part in the desperately needed love and care, who’ve #suffered HORRENDOUSLY, leaving them sick and thrown away.

I did it!!

For about two years I struggled so hard living with life with a #narcissist , #abuser #mentally and #physicalabuse . Going back and fourth with being with him and not. Today marks ONE YEAR of him being completely cut out of my life!! I didn’t realize how bad he was hurting me til he was gone. Who knew how amazing it would feel too!!! If you think you can’t do it, remember you can!! It’s hard but it’s so worth it!!


Trapped and blind.

#Psychosis /psychotic disorders are so cruel; it feels like you're being put on display in the pitch darkness whilst the people you can't see on the outside express their concerns about your "strange" or "concerning" behaviour, telling you that you need help over and over again. You nod and agree like an obedient puppy although you aren't sure that the #silhouettes in front of you are telling the truth, you feel like you can't trust them and you can't trust yourself either. You become convinced that you're at the centre of a massive conspiracy...
That they were lying to you after all, that you can't possibly do what they say you do, you can't be "psychotic" and that they are just making it up for their own advantages. You feel blind and helpless but scared and trapped at the same time. It's a constant battle with your #Senses .
You realise for a while that you can't trust your senses, that you have to rely on other people to "correct" your perception of reality and eventually you begin to envy them. This exacerbates the feelings of losing control, so you decide to regain that control by stopping your #treatment plan/medication and the thrill of this fills in that #empty space. You finally feel like you are the same as everyone else, that you aren't #mentally ill at all, that you belong.
Until the cycle starts all over again.

Just thought I say: Feeling cute today! #gettingbetter

I haven't been feeling very well #mentally the past few days, but today I actually feel kinda cute. Not enough to like the way I look, or to actually feel good about myself, but enough to feel like things may be looking up. #Depression #Anxiety #nonbinary #LGBTQIA #LGBTQ
