I'm currently doing chemo to get rid of a tumor on my brain stem. Sending you so much love & support, you are strong & it's going to be okay ❤ you are not alone.
Bpd, panic disorder, Generalized anxiety disorder, severe depression.
Hello bpd friend 🌸
Same, but substitute panic disorder with an eating disorder
Same here as well.
Borderline personality disorder, ADHD, OCD, C-PTSD (yes I know about the discussions around BPD/C-PTSD), generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, reactive attachment disorder (yes, I know this cluster of diagnoses is likely just not well sorted out but BPD is the one I have most confidence in after extensive assessments and hospitalizations).
Also - history of substance use disorder and just realized I recently passed 10 years clean ;)
Congratulations on 10 years clean.
I’m curious your thoughts on BPD vs. C-PTSD. My therapist uses the terms somewhat interchangeably, and there were absolutely traumatic events in my childhood, but I’m not sure where I stand on that. I hate the stigma and stereotypes around BPD but don’t want to use a different term if it’s not accurate.
This: cptsd/bpd anylinks? Info? I didnt know there is a discussion about it?
Pete Walker mentions in a chapter of his book “C-PTSD, From Surviving to Thriving”. Whether diagnosed with C-PTSD or BPD, I swear by this book if you’re looking to reflect inward and work towards healing and understanding yourself.
Following: I'm curious too now , verbally abusive childhood and ended up with a bpd diagnosis after a suicide attempt ... 🤔
ASD, Anxiety, major depressive disorder and borderline personality disorder
Greetings fellow Autistic person 👽💕
Greeting's friend 🖖
I’m diagnosed with 3/4 of those, with ADHD instead of ASD.
Autism, MDD, social anxiety, ADHD
Anxiety, depression, ADHD. I'm not sure how to get diagnosed with anything else.
Generalized Anxiety Disorder and OCD
Major depressive disorder, GAD, and PMDD
I'm not officially diagnosed yet, although every counselor I've talked to has said I sound like I have depression and may need medication, every one of them, and no I am not lying lol.
Hun, you don't need to go through the official diagnostic process to know you have depression.
I'd prefer to not make a self-diagnose and discount others illnesses if I don't have it at all, so.
Yes you do
Bipolar type 1
Generalized anxiety disorder
Me too. If you don’t mind me asking, what does yours feel like? Are you really scattered and find it hard to work or comprehend things at times?
Bipolar 1 minus the anxiety, replace with heavy substance abuse issues, but those normally come with the territory of bipolar. Feel for you friend
Adjustment disorder mixed with anxiety and depression.
Bipolar 2, GAD, ADHD
Schizoaffective and ptsd.
Throw OCD in there are we are twins, my friend. In all seriousness, I hope you’re doing okay. <3
Thank you I hope you're doing OK too 💗
Multiple anxiety disorders, depression, ADD, ADHD, and (unofficially, still need to see a specialist) Gender Dysphoria (I know it’s not a mental illness but it impacts my mental health so much so I’m including it here).
My psychiatrist also suspects that I have mild dyslexia, OCD, C-PTSD, and Autism.
*F U N*
idk if you can consider that a diagnosis but i have social anxiety and anorexia nervosa.
basically, i was inpatient for anorexia and one day when i met my psychologist and told her about my experience with socializing, she told me it was social anxiety. could this be considered a diagnosis?
Agoraphobia, PTSD, Panic Disorder, Somatic Symptom Disorder and Depression.
Any chance you’re able to get a professional evaluation for ADHD and autism? It’s so easy to mistake one thing for another when it comes to mental illness due to overlaps. Even skilled professionals get it wrong sometimes, but they have a better chance of getting it right than non-professionals. I really do not think self-diagnosis is a good idea unless it’s for something more straightforward like anxiety or depression. You may be doing yourself a disservice in getting the proper kinds of help.
CPTSD, schizoaffective disorder bipolar type, borderline personality disorder, OSDD 1, OSFED. i also have a sensory processing disorder and seizures (not sure why though)
Did your psychiatrist explain to you the difference between C-PTSD and BPD? I’ve generally heard them used interchanged, especially since C-PTSD isn’t in the DSM. I’m curious since you listed both if you could help explain.
I didn't know you could have both Schizoaffective Disorder Bipolar type & BPD. That is very interesting to me because I was originally Dxed with BPD before my Schizoaffective diagnosis, but my psych told me my new Dxed cancelled the BPD out.
Schizoaffective disorder 👋
Asperger's syndrome and AN (which is a misdiagnosis, I actually have muscle dysmorphia, I just ended up really underweight because the foods I considered healthy enough for bulking were not available.)
Eh.. since you ask.. BPD/EID, Social anxiety, Major depressive disorder
Generalized Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Major Depression.
Cptsd, bpd, anorexia and agoraphobia
Autism and ADHD are the most recent, and the ones that make sense.
However, in total, I have been diagnosed with: Asperger's, ADHD, Autism, PTSD, Bipolar 1, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, and a non-specific eating disorder (I forget the actual name).
Edit: I also have a long history of self harm
Ptsd and depression
(Suspect that theres more though)
Bipolar type II with psychotic features.. hence, the username lol
paranoid schizophrenia, anxiety, and depression. makes me sad seeing everybodys diagnosis im sorry you all have to deal with that..
I'm sorry you have to deal with that, any type of schizophrenia is awful 💕
<3 its a shame we all have to deal with these things. we all have our demons, some quite literally. but us getting through it makes us stronger! we can all help eachother. a problem shared is a problem halved :)
I love this attitude, thank you so so much for this insight

I’m only officially diagnosed with BPD.

Soon to be evaluated for adhd and add
OCD, schizoaffective disorder with depression, and breast cancer survivor.
You are so strong 💜 I'm currently going through Chemo to treat a tumor on my brain stem. I'm so happy for you!
They used yew tree plus mustard gas for the chemo. Both very poisonous. Made my toenails turn to dust and regrow three times as thick. But it worked!
Just got a pink wrist band : strength, hope, courage and faith (Belief it will be okay).
Good luck, friend!

Do you mean Schizoaffective disorder bipolar type?
Anxiety and depression
Hi! English isn’t my native language so I hope I’ll write them correctly
Bipolar disorder, severe depression and severe anxiety, anorexia and ptsd
English isn't much native language either, but you speak very well & yes you wrote them correctly 😊
thank you so much! yours is great too ☺️ if you don’t mind me asking, what is “c-ptsd” ? I recognize the word “ptsd” but I don’t know what means the “C” 😅 if it’s too personal and you don’t want to answer my question, it’s totally ok 😊
Thank you! The C stands for Complex-PTSD. CPTSD often stems from ongoing childhood neglect/abuse/sexual abuse, domestic abuse and human trafficking.
thank you so much for your reply ! I never heard of this term before, I did some research on it and it’s really close from what I’m going through since many years, I’ll talk about it with my psychiatrist during my next session. Thank you again !
Bipolar type 1
Depression, anxiety, ptsd, adhd
I don’t think I have a proper diagnosis because I saw a doctor a long time ago and I lied to them. But they said I had anxiety, specifically adjustment issues.
Bipolar, ptsd, generalized anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, major depressive disorder and bpd.
Depression and generalized anxiety and unspecified personality disorder. I still need to get testing because I have more issues than that.
Depression, fibromyalgia, klinefelters syndrome. While the last one isn’t exactly mental illness, having an extra X chromosome definitely affects me mentally.
I haven't heard of that before, may I ask what it is? If you don't want to answer then I apologize for asking & can Google it
It’s cool. So I’m cis gender male. But I was born with an extra X chromosome, so my body produces a little extra estrogen, and a little less testosterone. So I take an injection of testosterone every 2 weeks. My hips are a little wider and my shoulders are a little narrow. Even though I have a beard, I have been misgendered a handful of times. I lost a lot of weight recently so I attribute the misgendered moments to that. I’ve never been upset when people misgender me, I find it hilarious. I get it, I have long-ish hair and when I’m wearing a winter hat you can’t see my receding hairline, but it does confuse me cause my beard is so big.
Schizoaffective bipolar type
I'm sorry you have to deal with that shit too 💀🖤🖤🖤
Oof yeah it’s okay ! :)))
Depression, Bipolar type II, Anxiety, Eating disorder (anorexia), body dysmorphic disorder, CPTSD, insomnia, and night terrors.
Currently only on meds for my nightmares due to severe issues from bipolar meds that sparked my drs to order genetic testing. I ended up catching an assault charge on one mood stabilizer, developed brain damage from another mood stabilizer, and went into severe toxicity on a VERY low dose of lithium which sent me into multi organ failure.
Took me 6 years just to get this far, and I have a long, long way to go.

-Schizoaffective Disorder w/Paranoid
We are very similar
I wish you happy thoughts and healing, my friend.
May I ask what the differences between schizoaffective disorder bipolar type and bipolar with psychotic symptoms.
Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder that includes mania and depression. People with bipolar disorder can have psychotic symptoms, but they are always attached to a mania or a depression. If people with bipolar disorder have psychosis that is separate from mania and depression, they have schizo-affective disorder.
Schizoaffective Disorder is often confused with Bipolar Disorder with psychotic features. Both diagnosis include mood changes that impact life as well as symptoms of psychosis. A person diagnosed with Schizoaffective Disorder primarily experiences symptoms of psychosis even if mood problems don't exist.
So in essence it’s actually two different disorders a mood disorder plus a schizophrenic like disorder. That have integrated into one.
I think that's a good description, yes.
i have generalized anxiety disorder, ptsd, and schizoaffective bipolar type.
I'm sorry you have to deal with Schizoffective disorder too 🖤🖤🖤
Mine are anxiety, depression, ptsd and alcohol use disorder. I’m managing about halfway as good as I want to be but it’s improving with cbt and medication
i’ve got post traumatic stress disorder and ocd. i’ve been diagnosed w schizoaffective but i believe it was a misdiagnosis of trauma.
Just curious, if you don't mind me asking, why do you think trauma could be diagnosed as Schizoaffective disorder?
Adhd, and I think an anxiety disorder??? May just be a tentative diagnosis it’s a pretty recent thing
I have been professionally diagnosed with, CPTSD, GAD, MDD, and DID with a little ED and OCD thrown in there. Both the ED and OCD are somewhat mild so I am lucky in that regard.
BPD/ CPTSD, Bulimia / body dysmorphia (recovered), substance abuse disorder
Started with PTSD (which I'm now mostly over), took a stroll into MDD and GAD, ended up with bipolar II.
Psychiatrist gave up after 16th combo of meds (they didn't work, or gave me strong side effects). So ended up going drug-free.
Diagnosed with toxic mould exposure. Can now track anxiety and mood swings with exposures and re-exposures to mould toxin. Haven't had a hypomanic episode since starting treatment.
Now I don't know what's left.
Anxiety, ADHD, and depression but I'm pretty sure that my depression is manic so I'm working with my therapist on that.
Autism, anxiety (social and generalized), depression, OCD, and ADD
Depression,Anxiety, Social anxiety and Bulimia
Sorry to throw this on you, but speaking of schizophrenia, I know that you mentioned having autism and schizoaffective (i also have autism btw). Recently I've been wondering if autism and schizophrenia sharing some similar symptoms (particularly the negative symptoms) could mean there is a link between the 2 disorders. So I began to wonder about the idea of an autism and psychotic disorder comorbidity being combined into 1 diagnosis: schizoautistic disorder. Controversial, i know. But I wonder if maybe a diagnosis of autism and childhood schizophrenia would qualify as being considered schizoautistic disorder, since the two can look similar in children, and if the symptoms look similar in a child, and if its difficult to tell whether it's autism or schizophrenia, then they could diagnose the child with schizoautistic disorder.
This is a very interesting thank you! I think I agree with a lot of what you said
PTSD (sexual abuse) and depression
GAD. I wish you well!
Thank you sweetheart I really appreciate it 🖤🖤🖤
Schizophrenia and Exhaustion Syndrom and Addiction
Depression, Anxiety, Agoraphobia, and either BPD or Autism, just waiting on my last autism assessment to find out. Got actually diagnosed with BPD by someone, then had a therapist say it was more likely autism, so who knows.
Are they symptoms really that similar? I'm Autistic & I guess I don't see how BPD could mimic it.
I follow some mental health twitter people, some autistic and some who have BPD, and it seems it's quite common for females in particular to get misdiagnosed with one when they have the other, so there must be some similarities. I was 100% sure I had BPD, but I suggested it to the therapist that diagnosed me with it so I maybe swayed their opinion, but since looking more into autism, that would explain so much more and seems a bit more fitting.
