I have ADD...been put on a lot of meds for it when i was younger, but when i hit high school i began abusing them, then decided to just get off them, also been diagnosed with depression.
I know i have severe anxiety even though i was never diagnosed. I have spent the last few years dealing with panic attacks, i have been really learning how to cope with it, which is helpful. before MR.Fishy died, when i would be having one of my panic attacks, if i could manage to get over by the tank i would sit in front of it and watch him swim around until i was feeling better.
I am allergic to milk protein, so i cant have anything that contains any for of dairy...it makes eating out or at other peoples house really tough.
I have some other quirks, not sure if they fall into any other catagory, for example, some things in regards to organization, like, not having to keep my house clean, i cant do that for the life of me, but my movies, m usic, and books HAVE to be in alphabetical order, if they arent, i freak out, I have even reorganized other peoples movies because it was upsetting me to see theirs out of order.
I have a lot of trouble with talking to people, cant go ask for help at stores, i would rather search for something for two hours than approach a clerk.
A lot of times when my girlfriend and i go out places, i just end up really getting in a weird funk, i will start feeling like i cant function or cant get anything done and stand where ever we are with a look on my face like "i have no idea what im doing or why im here." I can tell its really frusturating for her, but she puts up with it, but when ever it happens i feel really bad. Strangely the two places this wont happen is fish stores and plant stores.
I also have what like to call good days and bad days. by this i mean, there are days wher i feel fine and i can do things normally, and then there are days where i just feel like im in a fog, where i will get really upset and sometimes just start crying or feeling sick. Being a full time college student it is really tough to deal with it and gauge what will be a good day what wont, i think that is part of why i am taking my classes online this semester, last semester i stopped howing up half way through
. TOday for instance, has been a bad day.
Well thats a little bit more about me. I have to say that this community is amazing, and one of the few forums where i feel completely comfortable being myself.
