    Disability

    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!

    Learning Curve!

    Yo! 👋

    I just got my cystic adenomyosis diagnosis. My husband and I are family planning, we just lost our first to a miscarriage in July last year; during the appointment at my reproductive specialist that I was going to for PCOS already she found reasonable cause for suspicion of this fun new condition. An unbelievable amount of testing, bloodwork, and MRIs later….. I have my 3rd chronic condition 🎉

    Any tips and tricks to ease pain and manage well?

    Really going through alot mentally and physically.

    Been tested two months ago for autoimmune disease. And live in Florida. I like it some but hate the fact that I have to wait to see the doctor due to visitors and snowbirds in area occupying the appointments. I have to wait til June to see the doctor. Two months ago I started having an extreme sensitivity to the sun burns my face it hurts, also redness on my cheeks really bad. And when I don't cover my face I get really irritated even my arms get spots of like a red rash. And it only takes a few mins it hurts badly. And then when I am home after being outside I hurt all over and am miserable. Or extremely nauseous and disgusted ready to vomit easily. Whatever #AutoimmuneDisease this is it is killing me. I hurt all over and feel zapped can barely do much. Only work the schedule I have. I wanna cry and feel like #failure . #PCOS #Hypothyroidism #stomachpain #sunsensitivity #Flares

    I'm back after a break... how are you?

    I'm in a mental health IOP currently after a hospitalization in December for a bipolar mixed episode.

    I'm taking it one day at a time!

    also have some new physical health conditions to add to the list that I'm taking care of!
