    I suffer from depression (possibly bipolar disorder), extreme social anxiety, and slight OCD. I used to have gender issues, but I kind of stopped giving a fuck about my gender. Gender is stupid concept to me. I also definitely have issues with sleeping, but that could be stress related, not an independent problem.

    But the social anxiety is by far the worst one. I'm afraid to go out of the house. I force myself to go to this youth group once a week to see my friends because I feel guilty if I don't see them, but by the end of the night I'm dripping with sweat and my face hurts from blushing so much. I can't even bear to look at someone walking past on the street. I just keep my head down and hope they aren't looking at me. I worry about the way I walk so much that I momentarily forget how to walk, or even how to breathe. I don't like answering the phone or the door, because I feel like that person will be judging me no matter what. It kind of sounds self-centred, to think that everyone is judging me. But I just don't see why anyone wouldn't. I'm a dropout with no job, basically a parasite to my mother. But I just can't bear the thought of applying for a job, and having to see strangers on a daily basis. I don't know how to act around people. I don't fit in. I'm not like other people. Especially not here where I live. I don't see a future for myself.

    Sorry that kind of turned into a bit of a rant. I just have a lot of feelings (woo Mean Girls reference).

    Depression (more or less constant for the past five or six years), depersonalization disorder, and bipolar disorder. I also suffer from moderate anxiety which occasionally prevents me from going out with friends, embarrassingly enough. The meandering course of my adolescence has also been interspersed with small patches of insomnia (these last for 1~2 weeks and generally happen three to four times every six or so months).

    ADHD, OCD, Tourettes, Anxiety/Depression and Asperger's Syndrome. I've adapted enough to have lost dependence upon medication, and just self treat myself with therapy (music and pleasant thoughts helps well enough).

    Default Depression

    Who else here suffers from depression?

    I've been depressed for the last few months now, for reasons I'd rather not discuss.

    Got diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder a couple weeks ago. I'm still getting used to taking meds and seeing a psychiatrist, and having the condition. It hasn't fully sunk in yet that this isn't something that goes away after a week or two.

    I was diagnosed with Bipolar II, and the doctor that officially diagnosed me told me I have social anxiety, too. Just keep your head up guys! Mental illness is a curse, but it can be a gift as well. There's been countless instances of people in history with mental illness that have pulled through and achieved things nobody else ever dreamed of! Never be ashamed of who you are.

    I use to have psychotic depression.(the one without hearing voices) but I managed to cheer myself up just by doing the littlest things, like walks or talking to my family.
    I still have episodes but not as often now.
    Maybe this will help you all.

    I have Asperger's Syndrome (though I don't think that's a mental illness per se) and both generalized and social anxiety disorders.

    Hi, I'm Rose. I love music, alcohol, pointless Internet debates and being a snob about my choices in entertainment. I write a lot. You can read some of my writing at Autostraddle.com, the best site for LBTQ women on the Internet, where I am a staff writer. Or the funhouse that is my tumblr. I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.

    I have aspergers, (Pretty severe) Generalized anxiety disorder, and ADD. My life really sucks sometimes. Especially when I don't take my medicine (Which happens a lot sometimes) and when I am tired. I used to cry everyday at recess. I also used to really suck at social stuff, and I've only honestly got a little better. One thing I want to know, does anyone else like me find it easier to talk to people IRL or online?

    Online all the time. There's no pressure on me as there is IRL.

    It makes me nervous. More so than usual. It effects me the most when I have to look people I don't know in the eye. I can't do it much with people I am friends with, and my family is just used to it. Then again, everyone in my family is like that. I think I get most of it from my dad.
