Mental Disorders

Postby Sol » Thu Sep 10, 2009 2:10 am

How interested are you in mental disorders and their effects on the human body/mind?

Should I post my mental disorders, or keep them to myself?

I consider you a mental disorder.

Now why would you say that? :)

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Ahem. Sorry. I used to be interested in the effects of such circumstances in people. I'm not so much anymore. Differences in action and interpretation as an effect of identity and background is much more fascinating.

EDIT: so why isn't sleep the greatest time for you then?

Isn't it that background conflicts and situations help cause a disorder?
Anyway, I do agree Astica.

I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety and Schizo-Affectivity disorder a couple days ago.

I think it can help cause some disorders, but some are hereditary/otherwise predetermined. But outside the realm of disorders there are interesting differences in people too :wink:

EDIT: also, some doctor decided I was bi polar when I was younger, then I got referred to some other doctor who wanted to do some tests on me for medication prescribing purposes, then some other doctor who said I seemed perfectly normal and told my mother to take me home before I spent the rest of my life on mind numbing drugs for no reason.
It hasn't been mentioned since.

It reminds me of the time my toe was extremely sore, I went to one hospital (they took x-rays) and they said it was completely fine. Then I went to another hospital and they said my toe was broken in three places.
It was very inconvenient.

My father is full schizophrenic (he must take medication or he goes... well, crazy). I hope I don't end up like that; thankfully, it's very unlikely since he's the only one in my family to have it.

I used to live with someone with mild schizophrenia. She had quite good control over it though. Its something you only noticed when you lived with her/were close to her. She'd just have days where she'd be in violently bad moods and yelling and throwing things in her room and we all knew to leave her alone.

My dad's case must have been much worse. He completely went bonkers wherever he was. He had no control over his mind and lost all grips with reality.

My mom asked him one time, "Who is the president of the United States?" and he answered, "Pepperoni Pizza."

And no, that was not meant to be funny (but it is ok to laugh, I did too). :lol:

I always got really annoyed when my father made non-sequitur replies to anything, because it sounds like it should be amusing, when its really not, and people who only saw the funny side made me really angry sometimes.

(Hes not schizophrenic, he was badly brain damaged in a hang-gliding crash about 5 years ago)

I was diagnosed as Bipolar by a physician, but my mom didn't believe her so she said go to a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist said I was bipolar AND something else, and tried to prescribe me lithium. My mom said I couldn't take it so he prescribed prozac which I don't take.

Bullshit. On the whole, bullshit. Pharmacies love teenagers.

Exactly.
My mother has always complained about how every second kid was prescribed something when most of the time it wasn't necessary. She says that people just drugged their children to numb their minds and make them easier to handle and doctors just did it for the profit. This is why she never let them prescribe me anything and never made my cousin take her pills when she stayed with us.

Sure, there are some disorders which are genuine problems for people and sometimes drugs are kind of necessary, but not this often.

They said I was a manic depressive summinoranother. They gave me prozac and it helped for the most part, except I still got sad most nights.

So I quit taking it and did really well but now I'm right back where I used to be. :P

^Pretty sure manic depressive and bi-polar are the same thing. High five?

Prozac is probably just a fucking placebo, anyway.

The exception that proves the rule.

Manic-depressive disorder = bipolar disorder. Sometimes referred to as manic-depressive bipolar disorder for this reason.

So that's three of us that have been told we have to take pills for it, don't, and feel perfectly fine? :lol:

I feel moody sometimes, but I blame it on being human.

I'm definately not in a good place right now...
Maybe I've been in a worse place than I thought the entire time. :(

Not even; parents with teenagers love pharmacies.

Shut the fuck up. This is not a repository for your angst.
If you've got a problem, I wouldn't fault you for relaying it, but this vague boo-hooing is nothing short of pathetic.

And you posted this elsewhere, and I replied to it.
