Let's break the stigma of mental illness together, We exist, we are here and we want to be respected

^ yeah this. i had a manic episode a few years back, decided to stop taking all my medications because i thought i didn't need them and that i was better. HUGE mistake. not only were the withdrawals hell to experience, but i was the most unstable i'd ever been in my life lol.

Thank you for your input, LucarioGirl.

Oh man, Almalexia, I'm sorry you experienced that.

I once forgot to take my medicine for nine days and the delusions returned. AT COLLEGE.

I was slightly in Strangeland and somewhat not, I realized my thoughts weren't making any sense.

I can't remember what else happened, but I survived.

So I went into the psychiatric hospital on the 19 of March, 2019 in handcuffs.

Not comfortable at all.

Hadn't been sleeping well for 4 days.

At least I got out the same day, while it was still light.

And the staff there didn't mind that I was autistic, like they did at the other one I went to.

I'm glad for that.

I hope everyone is okay.

Here is an article that I felt described my experience with sleep or the lack of it.

Maybe you will be able to relate as well.

Hey guys. I've never been diagnosed with a mental illness, but since the 6th grade (I'm in the 12th grade now) I've been in and it of counseling and therapy for a bunch of different things. I tend to experience really strong emotions that mess things up and I'm very forgetful (which is a symptom of many different illnesses but that's obviously not a guarantee).

Anyway, I hope I can still talk in this thread. C:

I have no problem with you being in here.

I also share being forgetful.

Mimi: Thought I'd pop in here, hey we've never been diagnosed but we're most definitely plural (don't entirely consider it to be a mental illness however, but still relevant) and most definitely have PTSD, and we're probably somewhere in the autism/ADHD/OCD side of things but have no idea how.

We've had a lot of trouble with doctors and therapists in the past, but we're kind of in a weird state where we feel like we'd benefit from getting a diagnosis but have no idea how to go about it. We don't really want to try therapy again because no one around here really seems to know how to handle plurality, especially outside of DID, and it's not worth the risk in our case.

Hello Mimi, welcome!

It took a bit of time for me to be diagnosed, I hope you can find a good therapist.
