Thank God for the anonymous feature!
I have been struggling all of my life with symptoms of depression, anxiety, inattentiveness, hyperactivity, and obsessive behaviors. At least that's all I can think of right now.
I have been diagnosed with ADD, OCD, and Bipolar by some doctors and told by others that my symptoms are not severe enough to put me into those categories. They may not be alone, but when you lump them all together and deal with them every day, they are making me miserable.
Some of my specific symptoms are:
moodiness, especially with my children and husband
ruminating (obsessing over everything in my mind)
facial and leg hair pulling
skin and nose picking (bash away!)
impulsivity (I have shoplifted before, until I got caught)
bad money management
no follow-through (no lack of great ideas, though!)
poor organization skills (again, no lack of great ideas!)
Oh my God, I've never ever in my life told this all to anyone at one time. I can't trust any doctor to tell it all to, which is why I probably am not getting treated properly.
Anyways, I just found out that I live 1 hour away from a world-renowned expert on my conditions and I will be able to get in this spring! I am praying I don't lose hope before then.
Thanks for "listening".
