I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like the more attention I give to the disorder the more it becomes real and affects me, like even talking about it at all spooks me because then I feel as though it defines me. I’m not in denial of it at all which is why I’m here, but it’s almost like the less I know the better up to a certain point.

      I remember years ago I told I had sza and he actually almost went white and actually took a step backwards. I was like I'm not contagious

      For a minute, i only got a handle on it recently, I was almost obsessive about it. I was over analyzing everything I did and felt all the time and connecting it to symptoms and stuff. I talked to someone about it and i realized that I was actually wrong, like, some of my behaviors are due to other issues. Also, I was only making myself feel more alone by setting myself apart from people, thinking of it like “I am sick and they are not, we can’t connect” etc etc. my friend straight up told me I am identifying with it too much. It’s a part of me and a part of my day, but I’m trying to just let it be and when it causes an issue I address it.

      I feel the same way. Sometimes I feel like it defines me and plays a part in my every action. I've found that only talking about it with super close loved ones who you trust helps. Then you don't get a bunch of questions about it or people judging or making assumptions about you based on your disorder.

      Yes! Completely agree. I do not let it take my power away, if that makes sense. Focusing on other things has definitely helped me not give all my attention to it, which seems to help alot!

      I feel like with a lot of people, once they hear that you have it, that's all they see you as and question if your feelings, things you saw, or heard are even real. It's makes it hard to be normal when people are constantly bringing up the fact that something you said might not be legit.

      Me too, I don't like to talk about it for that reason
