I had a professional psychologist friend tell me today that i have too many diagnoses, and that all but 1 or 2 are probably inaccurate. However, i have bits of hard scientific evidence for each one. Is there something I’m missing here? I agree it seems like a lot, but considering everything it seems accurate to me….. (click my profile to see the full list if ur curious)

      @Viynnyie ^^^ This. It's totally normal to have multiple similar diagnoses. Don't worry about what others say about it. Many medical conditions have high probabilities of also having a sister condition. You're the only one who's able to walk in your shoes, and you're not missing anything.

      Hi! I've been dealing with several mental illnesses for over 20 years. All of them have been diagnosed by a psychiatrist and confirmed by other psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, and therapists. Having 3+ mental health diagnosed is most certainly possible.

      You aren't missing anything. You have been diagnosed with everything because there is evidence supporting them. Keep in mind that not everyone will agree with or believe in all your dx's. Just because they say that they think you have too many doesn't mean it's true. My family tells me the same thing. Take it with a grain of salt.

      Hey just an FYI psychologists have NO medical training so ignore what your friend said they actually don't know what they're talking about and most of your issues do often go hand in hand.

      Several of your conditions have many overlapping symptoms and can be difficult to distinguish if you aren't well researched in all of them, that can even include doctors who aren't specialized in the right areas, so it is possible that the symptoms you're attributing to multiple conditions are all a part of just one or two conditions. However, it also isn't unheard of to have as many as you have listed, or more, especially since many of those conditions have comorbidities with each other. You might consider looking at symptom venn diagrams and other comparisons of all of the conditions you feel match and see if anything can be ruled out.

      I wouldn't worry too much about what they are saying.

      I personally wouldn't really worry too much, I've also wondered the same weather I also have "too many" but it's not unlikely to have various diagnosises, espically when their also coupled with autism as this can branch into many other conditions/symptoms. Plus no one ever truly knows you inside and out whitch includes your experiences with certain things in life amd how they effect you weather it's mental or physical. If you've gon through the processes of receiving these diagnosises, then I personally think there's very little to question. Yes, having many diagnosises may not be seen as much but it happens and it's happend many times with many diffrent people. I don't think your missing anything or out of the loop of something, your just living ♡
