Always get a 2nd 3rd opinion before you take it to heart especially if they try to diagnose in a short amount of time. Make sure that whoever is diagnosing you is using more then a checklist or just a few lines of words coming from your mouth. After you get diagnosed (wrongly) with a disorder good luck trying to convince anybody otherwise which is really stupid.

The stigma just isn't on that list from that site either. The things that kitty listed as well causes just as many problems.

It isnt individual that have disorder. It isnt individual that is ill. World is ill. Life is chaos and irational. World is rotting.
All so called disorders are normal human ractions to outside conditions.
This thinking is immature and just painfully ignorant. Please try finding out about disorders before pretending they are normal reactions to a world that you feel has wronged you.

Uh yeah well I have a personality disorder. I have never been able to click with society or people no matter how hard I try. I spend most my free time In a daze sort of dream world far from reality.

The funny thing is I have such a great understanding of the world and all. But I am unable to trust people and my moods Change dramatically tons of times throughout the day. So I might as well be an alien because I just don't see myself clicking anytime soon

Hmm But doesn't it fit under cluster c (anxious and fearful disorders)

PTSD can fall under that category couldn't it?

Anyways call it what you will. But I see it as a personality disorder :)

PTSD is a disorder in it's own right - 'Post Traumatic Stress Disorder'.  People with Personality Disorders can have PTSD but people with PTSD don't necessarily have a Personality Disorder.

I could have swore that I responded to this one already....

I see feeling Zombiefied isn't in there. Must be the behavior they want from us, if the effects and side-effects from most of the mental health drugs are concerned.

So what's wrong with that? Don't you think the stigma and misunderstanding attached to it should be addressed? That won't be done if everyone with a PD hides away in shame and fear. No one has to own up, but for those that do, I don't think reminding them that their friends and authorities would be entitled to an opinion whether positive or negative is helpful.
My point was not that they shouldn't share if they wish.  I was simply making the point that ANYTHING shared online is out there for anyone to see and it's FOREVER.

I don't think you get my point, but that's ok.

Oh I think I have a couple.....ADD, separation anxiety, manic/depressive....do those count?  It's somewhat of a roller-coaster ride....normally they are kept in check, but occasionally one or the other leaks out....sometimes more than one....but I manage to survive....I haven't decided to check out yet....I guess that is a positive sign.

There is thing's that I will not share or post online due to the the above, and I also would NOT recommend that anyone post's various specific's online due to the reason's You have bought up

While (as I already have done in this topic) I do not mind if what I suffer with is online

There has been time's I have known people for a while and one day the conversation turned around to disabilities and the like and I turned round and said what I suffer with, from that moment on their whole attitude changed for some reason, it was like they could not handle that I was disabled, even though it is me that has to live with it and not them

There has also been time's that I have seen people being totally out of order in what they say and how they act toward's people with either disabilities or mental illnesses
There has been a few time's I have turned round to them and told them exactly what I think of them for doing so (severely)

It is only by people talking more openly about such thing's, that the people that are prejudice or whatever will (hopefully) learn a bit more and treat people with respect, rather than the way they treat people without them really understanding the reason's why the person they are trying to humiliate or take the mickey out of, why they are the way they are and how that person feel's

Talking about such thing's is not harmful in any way, in fact it can be or should be the opposite, it can and possibly would have a positive outcome
