shael Posted February 29, 2008 Share Posted February 29, 2008 In and out of treatment sixteen years; spent some time as a juvie under house arrest but never jailed or hospitalized. Diagnosed two and a half years ago with Bipolar NOS; dissociative disorders, ptsd, SAD, other things i can't remember at the moment also turn up on my charts from time to time, and i'm wondering just what that "deferred" next to the personality disorder blank means. Low doses of lamictal keep me stable enough that i remember to brush my teeth most days. A house full of variously whacko humans and cats and chickens and dogs keep me from navel-gazing too much. One in particular is a candidate for therapy dog. Honestly, i prefer Batshit NOS. The ever-changing labels are just new things to obsess over. I'm a writer by trade, and sometimes i lose my grip on the language. This, more than anything -- more than forgetting to look before i cross the street and walking out in front of a bus, more that the days when to floor rolls and the walls are all crooked, more than losing my dog -- scares the shit out of me.
