How "normal" of a life do you live being diagnosed with multiple disorders?

      There is no such thing as "Normal". Don't compare yourself to others, just because you're not like someone else doesn't mean you're not a valid human being. -☆ Everyone is unique and different, everyone is like their own special snowflake! No 2 people are the same, never ever! Don't think you're not normal because you are your own kind if "normal" -💎

      I try to live life about as normal as I can make it. Everything just needs to be planned and pace myself doing whatever it is that I may be doing. I can’t do physically what I once was able to do. In my mind I can but my body tells me otherwise.

      I can pass for surface level normal in a pinch, but it’s difficult and not often worth the effort. I’m not even cisgender so like 🤷

      I have a diagnosis in every area mentally plus 12 physical things it definitely don't seem normal but I try too when out in public other than that none.

      Hmm given that interpretation, I suppose you *could* say I lead a mostly normal life, but I don't make any effort to mask anymore as it was so draining I got tired of trying to be something other than what I just am. I'm a music teacher, and I stim during classes, take breaks as I need them, etc. A lot of my kids need the same things that I do or benefit from me taking care of myself with no shame, and I'm lucky to have supportive parents and admin in my school who are willing to help when I can't handle everything on my own

      Normal having no side effects or symptoms others see. I am able to function and have a job most dont know anything at all I hide it all well. I take my meds at night focus normally during the day at night when I go home I get sick usually then I smoke weed and deal with it all and take my meds cause taking them will make me betterm

      I truthfully have no idea what "normal" even means

      I try to make my goal = the life I want not what it “should be” it really depends on what you mean by normal. If you are thinking of “normal” as for the typical average person then I think you will always be disappointed but if you are thinking of what is normal for you then I think it’s possible to reach that with the right routines care and management.

      Some days feel normal with a hint of mental illness while others feel like a dystopian movie I was cast in and didn’t audition for.

      Normal is what you make it, my normal is setting a goal based on how many spoons I have for the day

      I think you find a new normally for yourself. It depends on how well you can manage honestly

      Not normal at all, quite frankly. But I try my best to seem “normal” to everybody else; it can be hard for me, but after years of masking it’s gotten fairly easy to seem normal
