frannie Posted May 11, 2006 Share Posted May 11, 2006 my name is frannie. i'm 20 and i have been diagnosed with major depressive disorder, dissociative identity disorder, eating disorder-not otherwise specified (in recovery from anorexia nervosa), post traumatic stress disorder, and i am also a recovering crystal meth addict with 85 days sober. my mental illness progressed somewhat like this: -sexual abuse at a young age for a sustained period of time- led to early childhood development of eating disorder/DID. -treatment for anorexia nervosa -relapse -treatment for anorexia nervosa -brief stint in the army -treatment for extreme/chronic/atypical/what-the-fuck-ever depression with several suicide attempts -eating disorder relapse -another suicide attempt -crystal meth addiction -hit an EXTREMELY low bottom -treatment for meth addiction -relapse -treatment for meth addiction -relapse -finally decided to get sober and am now very active in AA/NA/12-steps in general -still feeling really fucking depressed/crazy/eating disordered/at times suicidal i have come to terms with the fact that i am just crazy and am going to be for probably the rest of my life. i am currently dealing with discontinuation of effexor xr (300 mg) and cymbalta (60 mg) (i have been on both for about 11 months- even through meth use) and am now taking 300 mg of wellbutrin xl, 10 mg of lexapro (which i utterly loathe; i took it for several months after my stint in the army and all it did was make me extremely tired/apathetic) and 200 mg of provigil daily. just wanted to say hi and any advice/whatever is welcome.
