i wasnt diagnosed for any childhood mental illnesses as i did nt start seeing a psychiatrist until i was 22 but really should have been seeing one since i was 12
anyway having educated myself on mental illnesses (on the site www.psychcentral.com/disorders i have learned really that i should have been diagnosed with this disorder… Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder …this is an illness where an adolescent or child exhibits ongoing irritability, anger and frequent temper outbursts and depression…it can be known as childhood bipolar according to the site
are any of you aware of childhood mental illnesses you may have had eg ADHD, Conduct Disorder, ODD or anything else …you dont have to have had a formal diagnosis but you just know you had it
i never was diagnosed with any childhood mental illnesses but i should and in the modern days of now i prob would have been diagnosed a lot sooner… but it’s no use looking at the past too much i think so i rather focus on the present days and the near future.
My sz cognitive symptoms started since I was 8-10y.o. in the language/emotions areas. Math is much less affected. My positive and negative symptoms started since I was 15. They gradually got worse until I tried to kill myself and ended up in the emergency with liver failure from intentional overdose. In the emergency a psychiatrist diagnosed me with psychosis NOS bcz I was sure that I was Jesus and that I saw Jesus for real.
'@noise …thats tough that you had those problems …i had depression and anxiey myself …i see you had DID, that is the most bizarre illness…in my spare time i have been reading up about mental illnesses to educate myself, but DID is the hardest to understand…do you mind if i ask you a question or two
Were you aware of alters when you experienced them or were you totally unaware of them
Are these personalities different from your core personality
is experiencing DID like daydreaming,
as i said DID is difficult for me to understand, if you can enlighten me in any way i would very much appreciate it. Thanks
