Can you elaborate a little on what you mean by "22 disorders"?

I don't mean to discount the point that you may well have just that; but it seems to me that, to the extent that all of these things derive from similar psychological causes, it's not so much 22 separate things as it is 22 different manifestations of the same underlying problem.

No, that's meant in a good way.

You are not your 'disorders'. They just help other people get a handle on them.

You are you, funnily enough.

Otherwise you could also be:

Two legs
Two arms

What's the difference? Still just convenient 'handles' for things that make up part of a whole.

While the process of these traumatic experiences may have altered your consciousness (like in all of us), you remain irrevocable human, and processingly able to dispose any unwanted situation. I don't want to make it seem as nothing, and my case is far more simple/light, but the fact that you will not have any problem getting rid of those was predefined at the time you started taking steps to dispose them.

I understand that you already making progress.

And hey! :) MrMole is right! they are just names that the doctors give. They have no special meaning.

I know that they are only doctors' names; I use more poetic terms to describe my problems. Besides, I find that pain is best measured not by the amount by which one suffers, but the amount by which one is forced to change in response to the pain (since pain is HIGHLY subjective).

Yours truly,

P.S. Don't insult me by calling me human...

I mean that people have treated me like I'm subhuman, like I'm just an animal or a demon, for so long that I've grown to hate the word "human."

You're not a 'human'.

You're a person.

Well I can say anything, but like you I know it has to come from inside too (I struggle with this as well). Hense my earlier PM.

Maybe we should ask Martin for ego lessons. :lol:

Yes, that's because I pressed preview, then post, then something happened, while I was looking at something else. And then I pressed submit again. Sorry.

i saw another post of yours and it said you have schizophrenia. I'm also schizophrenic.

I was diagnosed with many other things, including psychotic depression, GAD, SAD, OCD, ADD, panic disorder, auditory processing disorder, depersonalization disorder, etc. before the doctors realized it is all schizophrenia that is causing this.

I don't think it's really possible to have 22 different mental conditions at once. What i mean is, schizophrenia can cause a vast amount of symptoms that can look like all kinds of other ilnesses, for example: in schizophrenia or schizoaffective, a person can have depression, anxiety, OCD, manic episodes, etc. But it would technically all be due to the one illness: schizophrenia.

anyways, i dont mean to sound like a smart @$$. I suppose you could technically concider yourself to have many different mental illnesses, whether or not the psychiatrists would think that way or not.
