      at rehab i would write fake love letters to this girl and she never found out it was me. i’m in love with with her but she is straight. when i got out of rehab i stalked her and ended up flirting with her brother. i only flirted with him to try to get to her. he ended up falling in love with me and i blocked both of them and haven’t spoken to anyone from that facility since.🥳

      I like magic and anything having to do with spirituality. (The supernatural, tarot readings, psychics). I like to believe that it's possible for it to be valid and to exist. I would like to dab a bit into the magical and spiritual world myself sometimes. It makes me feel powerful and in control. I like to mix it up with psychology and philosophy. Anything is possible if you ask me.

      Sometimes I feel like I'm in between disabled and abled communities. On my good days, I'm able to be very active for a couple hours (it's still quite painful though). Testing for my 2nd degree black belt very soon, I'm an occasional hiker and I go to the gym when I can. People see that and they think I'm fine. What they don't see are the dozens of medications and supplements I need to take (35 last I counted - both multiple times a day or as needed meds), the amount of prep it takes for me to do these things and how exhausted I am afterwards. Most people also don't see me on bad days when I can't walk without my cane or walker and can barely get out of bed.

      I take more psych meds than most of my clients and experience more active symptoms. I work in mental health with people with varying forms of psychosis (MDD, BP, BPD Schizophrenia/Schizoaffective disorders) and I am also plagued with multiple mental health disorders. But am insightful enough to know what’s wrong and can identify the warning signs but also able to convince myself it isn’t as serious as it obviously is.

      Despite being extremely self aware and open about my thoughts, patterns, conditions, etc from years of therapy I'm still extremely insecure to the point of isolation. But when most people see me, they see someone who is smiley, talkative, outgoing, and engaging.

      I'm terrified of elevators and aeroplanes (because they're big elevators) so have been climbing stairs on crutches for 12 years and when I'm in too much pain to use my crutches, I go up and down on my bum or sleep on the floor downstairs.

      I have facet arthritis. And can't walk for long periods at a time or a burning pain/ needles will go down my lower back and to my lower legs and make me fall. So I use a motorized scooter in Walmart sometimes. Everyone looks at me funny. Thinking I'm taking advantage of the little carts but it's really my arthritis. 🫣🫣😥

      I have a weird habit of silently walking up to or behind people and waiting for them to turn around or face me. It usually gives my friends quite a scare. I don't know why, but I always kinda laugh a bit at their fear when they turn around, expecting to see nobody, and instead, they see a silent figure staring back and then they realize it's just me.

      I have horrible self esteem because my older sister was abusive. I tried to fix how I saw myself through hypnosis and it never work and only created more issues for myself. It's something I'm actively trying to fix right now. I've never told this to anyone. It's been my longest kept secret.

      I am constantly in so much unbearable pain, but because I can't get a diagnosis I have to work like nothing is wrong. Even though I use a cane and/or forearm crutches outside of work, and need a wheelchair but can't get one because they're expensive and I can't get a diagnosis

      I have awful anxiety due to autism and ADHD but no one noticed because I smile and mask so well 😅 I always get told I don't look anxious even people who have known me years struggle to notice when I'm anxious Also No one notices when I'm in pain as I don't express it well it easily or maybe I just express it wrong but with fibromyalgia I'm always in pain no one notices it though even when I say I'm in pain they think it's a little pain They don't know I've been doing chores and functioning with a almost two week migraine and gradual spreading nerve pain (I'm in flare up ATM)

      368d

      I don't actually listen to music 🤷‍♂️ that one always surprises people and makes them stop and ask why. I occasionally look up a particular song that floats into my head for the lyrics but otherwise I just don't feel compelled to listen to things 24/7 and can even get headaches because I can't get it out of my head (I think it's related to my adhd favoring aural input and repeating it over itself in a feedback loop in my subconscious)

      I’m not sure…the only thing that comes to mind is my age. I’m 39, about to turn 40 in 6 months. But everyone thinks I’m 10-15 yrs younger than I really am. I’ve even had guys approach me on social media after just seeing my photo and them not knowing my age assume I was in my 20s. When they figured out I was much older. They got angry at me. Which is crazy because I never represented myself as any specific age. After having that happen quite a few times. I’ve now started telling people my age right away.

      I can ride a unicycle, I grew up in a barn, and I'm getting my motorcycle license this month! My house burned down when I was 8, I was raised in a cult, I have 8 siblings and I live with my boyfriend and my family thinks its a sin.

      • ninners

      I hate my family. I love them so much but I truly truly hate them deep down. I’ll never be able to do a fraction of what they can. Will never get to experience even 5% of what they consider living a life. They get to experience youth and growth and then old age meanwhile I’m already physically old and am only going to keep deteriorating as I age. They get upset and depressed over not being able to snowboard on a Friday instead of a Wednesday while I will always be depressed over the fact that I can’t go snowboarding. Can’t run. Can’t jog. Can’t skip. Can’t drive. Can’t go into space no matter how hard I studied or wtf I did right. Can’t just untie my shoes and re tie on the drop of a dime when they’re too tight or don’t fit just right. Can’t take care of kids or cousins or nieces or nephews or a dog. Can’t make myself up a home cooked meal no matter how many blisters or hours are spent.

      • Seae

        379d

        @T1ffj regarding space, I’ve considered offering myself up as a test subject. Long term living in microgravity and the heart (that’s the one organ I know is up to snuff; my cardiologist couldn’t believe my last Holter Monitor report, and for the opposite of the usual reading: it was better than most healthy people), or something. The anger is hard, but you’re allowed to be pissed: your life is not what the average person will get to experience through no fault of your own.

      • Marjo

        388d

        @T1ffj We all carry a bag full of hardship’s, worries and difficult situations in our lives! If you could switch bags with someone you didn’t know, taking their problems and hardships? I realize we can become consumed with how great someone’s life appears! The grass may seem more plentiful on the other side of the fence… To live in a reality that puts us as a victim is non productive on any level! Being grateful for what you have in life no matter how small!! There will always be people that have less than you! Put your victimhood in the past, live in the here and now; your good choices will help create a better future!

And they constantly try to put me down.

        @xoxogossipgirl I do because I feel that exact way always judging yourself but not others it’s sad to think like this but it’s true you don’t really get over it sometimes you do sometimes you don’t when I’m drunk I feel like I love myself then I fall asleep but when I wake up I absolutely hate myself and I use rum often to help my anxiety even to sleep no medicine works to put me to sleep so I use rum

      When I tell people about my bipolar before I was medicated. I was diagnosed young and treated you so everyone except some family has never seen my violent and aggressive manic side because I now try so hard to live exactly the opposite. I'm overly nice and gentle. It's almost like people have trouble comprehending that I could ever be that way. Medication WORKS.

      I’m a full time therapist (I work with autistic kids), I have my own apartment, a car, but I also have FND. My illness is invisible to others most of the time, but when I have higher support needs, people around me treat it as a choice I’ve made to inconvenience them/attention seek. As a result, I’m constantly burning myself out, which makes my symptoms way worse than if I were allowed to listen to my body in the first place.

      I have slightly shaky hands, not due to Parkinsons or a degenerative disease, not from tardive dyskinesia, not from anxiety, but it means you don't want me serving your martini! It happens alone at home when relaxed, so it just seems normal to me. I can't understand your worries completely but I do know that the medical community is coming up with new solutions and the herbal and natural remedies are becoming more accessible as more and more young professionals espouse natural foods. I hope that you find something to help alleviate your symptoms now that will also help ease the worries! If you were ever a child who wanted an exotic pet, you could explore having a service monkey. I kid not! Give your worries a bit of the ridiculous and they won't seem so scary, like the Boggart in the closet in Harry Potter. https://monkeyhelpers.org/

      People look at me and see a slim person. Very much so. They don’t see the fact my heart rate going up a mere 10 bpm alone can put me into calorie burn mode. My “eating disorder” is actually my sympathetic system going overboard. Yes. I have gained a good aversion over the last 13 years of this …. But no I DO wanna be heavier. I DO! 51 years old and 99 lbs is really uncomfy! That’s my dirty little secret. If I get excited (and eating amps me up!) i lose weight. It’s probably gonna kill me. But now at least the Fitbit helps me explain it. 😥

      When my bipolar was severely untreated I was dangerously violent towards myself and others. I was young but I had to be restrained often and spent a lot of my days blacked out. Since I've been properly medicated I've spent all of my time becoming the exact opposite of that because I hated that person and that I hurt the people I loved and it's made me turn so strongly away from violence. I couldn't hurt a fly in my right mind. No one ever picked fights with me in school because I never put out that kind of energy and im just an overly nice gentle human being. Lots of people that know me today would never believe I used to physically hurt people and still would if my mania ever got that out of control again.

      i don't think most people know what's going on in my mind and body, but that's a pretty common chronic illness thing. i also generally look enough like a punk to be suspicious, especially to older people, but not enough to be cool. ::p no piercings other than ears, a small simple tattoo on my wrist, hair that hasn't been cut or dyed in 6+ months. sometimes don't have eyebrows, fairly visibly queer (though i guess i "male fail" with a mask). i don't usually bother with makeup anymore. but i have looked enough like a "freak" that i've been mistreated by doctors and strangers in public alike. people act like the ways i decorate myself are for attention, but i could really not give a single fuck about the attention and generally do not want it (beyond encouraging others to question their normal). i just put things on me that are comfortable or i enjoy. people don't like that. i guess my deeper secrets are that i spend around 40% of my time as an alternate personality (but not really an alter - my plurality is very ambiguous despite our distinctly different personalities). that personality is one of an animal who has the mentality of a child, speaks in a toddler-like voice, shouts (indoor voice) a lot, etc. it's a sharp contrast to my generally very serious, verbose, analytical self, and i try and suppress it in public - i get enough hate for being a disabled, queer, alternative young person! and enough people vehemently and blindly hate child regressors - much less childplay, or plurals, or otherkin, or furries, or anything similar to what that personality appears to be - that i'm terrified expressing it here as well, as if it's some sort of mar on my comment history and no one will ever take my advice seriously again. it was something i tried to hide from even my ex-roommate, one of four people in my close-knit friend group that is comprised of me, my partner, my best friend, and them. it's something i never remember to bring up in therapy, much less have the courage to. really the only person who's aware of it is my partner, and they're the only one i've known to really accept it either. (i often wonder if they are secretly only accepting of it on the outside, and play along only for the laugh.) that's the big thing people don't know and would be shocked to hear. even if i could tell people, i have no context to explain it in. i could just call it a facet of my ptsd but it's atypical enough in its presentation that it begs more explanation. some would just flat out disagree. and i feel that it's more important to me and my identity than "just a symptom". and i have no people to tell, because i intentionally distance myself. i don't have friends outside of my little group. i have one other social group - some people from an old offline group who i still haven't fucked up enough with to be kicked out - but i can hardly even talk about being disabled there, much less the strangest workings of my traumatised mind. tldr i have an alternate child-animal personality who is unknown to all but my partner. my trauma refuses to let me relate to anyone similar, even if i could find them.

      I'm surprisingly flexible despite my pain issues and my leg issues, but my flexibility is part of why I hurt so much. When I was able to go to a physical therapist for a little bit my pt told me that my flexibility was putting strain on my joints or something similar and it was a small part of why I hurt so much. Still struggling to figure out the rest of why I hurt so much, but it was nice to find out at least one of the reasons. I just wish I could find out the rest but nobody will listen or help.

      My dad is my abuser. I have constant pain all over my body (my stomach specifically). And when I try to get meds and go to the hospital for it, he calls me a liar. He also calls me a drug addict. He treats me like trash. I’m blamed for everything that goes wrong in our lives. Especially when I was a teenager (young teenager more) I was blamed for money problems. Before I was diagnosed at bipolar I was exhibiting signs, like impulse control and mania. I ended up spending like $200 on Amazon and ever since then (when I was 12), my father hasn’t trusted me with anything. He says “it’s in the past. It’s fine”, but his actions say otherwise. Plus I came out at trans FIVE YEARS AGO. And he still uses the wrong pronouns and recently dead named me. I hate this efin place.

I feel like i cant tell anyone because they will think i am crazy. I dont think its DID necessarily due to i remember most days but some days i get black outs that last days or weeks that i have no idea what has happened and i try to pretend i know what's going on in recent situations. Anyone is welcome to reply with their thoughts, I'd appreciate them

      I have basically developed two people within myself and I live with them every day. Sometimes it’s one version interacting, other days it’s the other, and they are vastly different from each other. I feel like people know and can tell, but I just don’t say anything because I don’t want to be judged.

      I'm very scary when I'm mad apparently. My friends had to point it out to me. I don't get actually mad at others often, mostly situations/circumstances, and I'm very quiet around most people. So when my anger is directed at someone, it's because I feel they're a threat to me or someone else. I never physically fight, so I was pleased to find out that I could really scare someone with just my anger.

I work from home and stay home 95% of the time, and I absolutely love it. I wouldn't have it any other way. My family members think I'm shutting myself away and going to drive myself mad, but it isnt like that at all. I feel insane when I leave my home, but home is where I find peace and am able to do the things I love.

      I witnessed a fatal accident involving a baby. I flew into action since I'm medically trained, but others got to her for CPR before me. I calmed all the other moms and kiddos who witnessed the accident. It was very gruesome and people were freaking out all over. The police, EMS, and firefighters were all crying. I was calm and collected...until I got into my car. I lost my ever loving mind the second my door closed. For weeks I couldn't eat, sleep, work. This incident threw my anxiety over the edge into panic disorders, increased meds, rescue meds, PTSD. It was a tragic, terrible accident. I think of the baby and her mama EVERY DAY. It will be 1 year in October.

      My childhood. Growing up I was basically in a fishbowl with a blindfold on. I was homeschooled, went to church, couldn’t go outside into the world for real, had a lot of restrictions on what I could eat, drink, watch, the internet, fun activities to do, belief systems, having an opinion. It’s crazy when I look back. I’m in my twenties now. I have severe social anxiety, severe depression, PTSD and the list can go on with other issues I have. People think it’s crazy how I was raised. Which it was crazy. I was raised to fear everything around me. Yet I’m somehow still alive. I honestly didn’t think I would still be alive here at 24.

Leggings and a t-shirt you probably see five or six. If I wear shorts you can see ALL of my leg tattoos, six in all (one is a line of roses about fifteen inches long). Muscle shirt shows all of my arm tattoos-nine on my left, three on my right. I obviously have hidden ones too.

      I'm the type of schizophrenic person who is the stereotype ("homicidal/serial killer" type). I'm finally way better medicated than I was for a while. I've never managed to harm anyone to that point, but if most people knew anything about it they'd run. When I do tell people (even just that I have schizophrenia), they're always surprised and say things like "you don't seem the type" or hesitate and say "wait, what?).

      A fact is that I was diagnosed with autism when I was 4 years old. I have changed a lot since then. I have (somewhat) matured. Ok, for the most part, I have. But when I tell people that I have autism, of course I'm serious about it, but they say "Huh. I would have never guessed you had autism until you said something." That actually makes me feel good about myself, considering they think I'm a normal person without a disability. It's kind of nice.

      The pain I am in on a daily basis would make most grown men cry but I have developed a mask I wear and no one knows what's really going on with me but my family. I am tired, so tired and can't sleep because of the pain.

      I really want to be in a relationship and I'm jealous of my brother's who have awesome girlfriends and the relationships that my parents have with eachother. I just feel so alone and it's not like I have many friends either. I've never even been on a date and I'm about to graduate college.

      I have pittakionophobia... which is the irrational fear of stickers. I dont know what caused it but stickers just freak me out. I will start hyperventilating and sweating and wiggling around around them if they arent stuck on something. Im not scared of tape or bandaids, just stickers.

      After I blacked out and almost killed my wife and son (2 different occasions) I finally got diagnosed with intermittent explosive anger disorder and got medicated. Haven't had an episode in years but my meds aren't working like they used to and I'm afraid something is gonna happen.

      My 20+ year battle with drugs started when I was 11 years old. My disabled dad "bonded" with me with drugs. I smoked Crack for the first time just before I turned 12. My tolerance for my drugs of choice was RIDICULOUS. People didn't believe me and when they seen me use it blew their minds. The story is obviously much much longer and darker, deeper but I am now 15 years "sober"

      People have always really liked me when meeting them, but not enough apparently to stick around or be friends. I was easily forgettable. Useful, helpful,nice,funny,spontaneous, but noone ever wanted to stick around. Now I wonder what real love feels like, what's it feel like to have just atleast one person to be there for you no matter what. Someone who wants to make sure your actually okay and do anything they can like I do. What about me makes people not want anything to do with me.. is it the way I walk or look? People always stare at me, like they are scared. I dont think I'm ugly... I've always wanted a family, friends, someone who treats me like I'm someone

      I don't know how to react to words of praise or hugs so I either run away or pretend that I didn't hear it.( I know it seems rude, I hate that I'm like this )

      My son is 29 and finally got his learners permit. He doesn't know how to drive and I can't afford to send him to driving school. I think he's afraid to drive. He has so much anxiety and depression. I hope you can get past it so you can drive someday. After you get used to it, it doesn't stress you out as much.

      • BIGGjon

        629d

        @Chark my son is now 24 and he's doesn't drive. His anxiety is crazy and it's always about the other people on the road. Try as I might I can't get him to drive.

      I have three older sisters whom none have most of my illnesses and I get most all of mine from my mother. Her parents were arranged marriage and second cousins so her sister has health issues and so does her daughter she has to be completely gluten free. But my Uncle was like my sisters none of my physical or mental health issues except bad periods so all 4 of us sisters have Mirena so we have no more periods so no more period cramps bad. But none of us no what the condition is that causes is to have these terrible periods. We are just thankful for Mirena.

      I've lived all over the world because my father was in the military. Usually I'll get a positive response, but little do they know that all those moves made me more and more anxious and depressed and that the father I had to stay with is mentally and emotionally abusive. Going 3 years strong without him.

      I've been clinically dead three times. I was ten when the chicken pox virus attacked my brain. They put me in a coma for a week and a half, because I kept dying. In the end I had to relearn everything: walking, talking, feeding myself, names of friends and family, etc.

        @Liza55117 I can absolutely relate. I have 2 family members that I talk to and one is 94 and not in great health. As far as friends go.... since I got clean I lost everybody. So....... if you need someone to talk to, vent, bitch, scream, whatever... I'd be more than willing to listen.

      I don't date because I find my current body repulsive. How do I expect anyone to find me attractive if I can't even look at myself in the mirror? I gained 100lbs 15 yrs ago and can't lose it because of my chronic pain and medication. No I don't overeat, I barely eat 1 meal a day so lapband or bypass surgery won't help me. My metabolism is crap.
