Wandering_soul Posted February 28, 2008 Share Posted February 28, 2008 Hello everyone. I'm new here after randomly bumping into these boards doing a google search. I'm not so good at these intros, but I suppose I should start at the basics. I'm a 20 year old university student, living in the state that looks like a flaccid penis (aka Florida). I've been officially diagnosed with major depressive disorder and some mild anxiety, however my psychiatrist is currently entertaining thoughts of bipolar disorder. I guess its hard to make a diagnosis on me or something...but then again I have only been in care for about 9 months. These things take time. I have always been known for my rapid mood swings (my mom describes me as a very moody child, one minute i was sociable and fine and the next i was withdrawing). I suppose I have had signs of depression since I was 15. I have the ability to shut down and withdraw within myself. Conversely, I do have episodes of extreme productivity and heightened energy (my manic phase). My moods do swing from one end of the spectrum to the other sometimes in the blink of an eye it seems. I am a former cutter, I haven't indulged in my former pasttime in about 5 months now...and I'm very proud of this accomplishment. So, yeah, I guess that covers the basics right? I hope to meet all of you and form some great connections while I'm here. I like to learn about what my mind is going through and how to best deal with it...what better place to look than on a community of people who are going through the same things Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
