Do you struggle with mental illness?

Obviously you can go anon. Mental illness seems to go unnoticed in so many people. Which mental illness do you struggle with? I have severe anxiety and scrupulous OCD. The latter is much more debilitating.

No, I snuggle with it. 

Depending on which doctor you talk to I either have schizophrenia and bipolar or schizoaffective disorder. They can't seem to agree.

I suffer from MDD, anxiety, and panic disorder.
I've struggled for a long time but I'm finally in a place where its all manageable and I'm happy.

Just the ol' run of the mill depression and anxiety.

Truthfully, it has been pretty debilitating at times. Not being able to drive holds me back a lot.
