Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Okay mom's so I saw this comment where a mom posted something about most of CM members having "medical problems" and it got me curious.

What's your official diagnosis and how long have you been diagnosed with it. I'll go first.

Mental:

Bipolar-Disorder with schizoaffective ---16 years

PTSD --- 10 years


Physical:

APS (Hughes Syndrome) --- 8 years

SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus) --- 1 year 1 month


Please no bashing. This is just to get people talking, not a place to be judgemental.

I've been unmediated until my two year old was born. I had severe PPD, borderline PPP, and it lasted until January (1/2011-1/2013) when I hadn't son and I'm now on a news fixation to combat it.

Do you know what to look for to go back on meds?


Quoting MamaAjax:


:( aww I'm sorry you feel that way. I am expecting most to post anon. I do dislike that people who post threads can't monitor them. But I don't think people should be affraid to advocate their diagnosis. I'm a huge Bipolar advocate mainly because I'm 9 years unmedicated and live a completely normal healthy life. I think that hiding and looking down on issues is something that promotes a problem.


Quoting GirlWSemiAuto:

This seems like a really bad idea.

I like you think! took em a while to peg mine at first they tried diagnosising me with "Ligyrophobia" but finally I got a good doctor who figured out it was PTSD because my symptoms kept progressively getting worse. I too have been able to manage it. I can even attend firework shows with my son now!

Keep with the positive!

I have PTSD but it hasn't gotten the best of Me in YEARS. What the wonders of running and positive thinking can do.

So I'm probably an ass for asking this, but which is worse? Kidney stones or birth?
