I was diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and depression at the age of 14 and have been on meds since then. I suffer from a chemical imbalance caused by a genetic condition. My illness has not prevented me from enjoying and living life to the fullest, though. I speak three languages, went to college, got two Master's degrees, almost did a PhD, married, and now I am trying to start my own clothing label. Life is good. I am happy and grateful.

Suffered a severe depressive episode once, induced by an over-the-counter drug (a prescribed to me painkiller)... Eventually needed a psychiatrist to fix me up. These few months of non-stop crying are definitely a hard thing to forget, yet eventually I believe they made me stronger in the end.

Beside that I have some reasons to believe I have a mild form of Social Anxiety Disorder, but haven't been checked by a professional to have a diagnosis for sure.

I have autism, but from the way I usually act in my daily life and on the web it's just like I've never had any disabilities whatsoever.

Apergers and a bout of depression or two. I spent a long time isolating myself from other people believing I didn't have any trust left to give. With the help of a psychologist, I'm overcoming that.

No autism, and no panic attacks. I'm sure we have a few members who can beat that record. :ninja:

I apparently have autism but at the same time several professionals have claimed it has a high chance of misdiagnosis. General consensus is with the doctors I've met is I have anger issues alongside dyslexia. Also dealt with depression in my teen years but thats all over now

I've been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, major depressive disorder, inattentive ADD, social anxiety disorder, avoidant personality disorder, and bipolar disorder (although I disagree with that diagnosis). I am still struggling to function normally and meet social demands, but I'm making progress and remain determined to improve my mental/emotional and physical health. I wish the best to those of you who are struggling with similar issues or other mental health disorders. Sometimes it helps to know that you're not alone; millions of people are struggling with the same health issues. I feel that it's good to be open about mental illness for this reason. There's no reason that it should still be as stigmatized as it is.

There're tons of conditions specified on the clinical psycholgist's definition manual, just like there're so many dishes introduced on a large cookbook, but I think a five-course dinner is already a pretty full one. lol

What about you, Rika? Almost everybody here have one mental issue or another. I can bet you have a few, too. :blueghost:

My Russian friend told me that psychology is not appreciated or respected as a career/discipline there. Do you confirm this?

I suffered from social anxiety in the past, as well as severe OCD. The only real problem I have anymore is bouts of OCD but it's nowhere near as severe as it once was.

Most diseases mentioned in this thread are never officially diagnosed (or treated) in Russian clinics, if that's what you mean.

I suffered serious depression (suicidal at times, tho I'd never really attempted it) during my elementary school days, but I somehow managed to overcome/self-heal it before graduation, & it so far hasn't recurred again to this day, which I ironically think is my biggest problem - I've never gone thru those psychological turbulances normally occurred during adolescence in other people, nor have I been able to really cry ever since then (not because I resist to do so), even tho I can feel tearful sometimes (e.g. when watching a sad scene in a movie). I also have a few other problems often seen in people living in big cities, but they're minor &/or not serious. My constantly, relatively low level of emotions do have helped me in some ways in my works & certain life matters, but I also feel that something important has been lost in my life - I think my being fond of using emoticons & "lol" in my posts here is kinda a "compensation" for that. XD

Ironically, I heard that mental institutions were common in your country during the Soviet era. :P

Yeah, that is what my Russian friend said. I wonder how Russians struggling with depression, OCD, or ADD cope.
