Tanya Posted October 6, 2006 Share Posted October 6, 2006 Hello everyone. I just joined. I'm Tanya. I'm five months away from my 18th bithday! I'm diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder type 1, (I experience sever psychosis) Social Phobia, OCD, and Self Injury. I father is an abusive man, who is also an alcoholic. From the time I was born to the age of 5 I seen him beat my mom. My parents are divorced. My mom also has bipolar disorder along with social phobia and ADHD. My dad and I were never close and now I am attempting to repair our relationship but at times he can be verbally abusive to me and he lies all the time. My dad does not believe in mental illness, and thinks I am a normal teenager. When I was 13 I was raped by a guy friend of mine. He made my life hell at school, so I left to be home schooled. I tried to kill my self that year and I was hospitalized. I've been hospitalized twice. I fried SI(ed) when I was 5 and my dad was beating on my mom, I didn't SI again until I was raped. Now I cut, burn and wrist scratch. My anxiety is horrible. I can't drive a car, I hardly leave my house. I'm working on trying to walk around the block. There is a lot more to my story and I will open up more around here as time goes on. I do go to therapy and see a doctor. I am also on medicine.
