To all those who think they have an illness...

I'm a firm believer in the whole anti self-diagnosis thing. I'm sick of kids who refuse to leave the house as they have "social anxiety" or are hyper little cunts because "my parents say I have ADHD". Sure, you may feel a bit shit or hyper every now and then. Everyone does.
Try having a real illness and being a fucking man about it. I have to do the following every 2 weeks and it turns me into an absolute mood monster but it allows me to eat and function as a physical human being.

So next time you think you are a bit down, hyper or whatever and expect attention, just think - you aren't alone. In fact, there are people with a lot worse shit happening in their lives than you.
Make the most of your life. You never know what's round the corner.

    Humira, an immune suppressant for Crohn's Disease. Bitch to inject but had to do it since mid January. Works wonders most of the time. Nasty side effects that only manifested a few months after. I just ranted about this as someone I lived with used to blame all her issues on some bullshit medical thing that was well overmilked or just a reason to be antisocial.

    Having an illness, especially a psychological disorder is the 'cool' thing for kids these days. Little faglets need to be smacked around a bit and then some.

    A chick at my school was on antidepressiants that made her sweat and stink out the class, really horid smells.
    Those sorta side effects?

    I know a mate with chrones, from what he told me it sucks, and the diet to help tastes like cardboard.

    Ah I don't tend to have a strict diet. I have mostly drinks that bulk me up as I'm so skinny. Whenever I do eat though I'm sure to make certain it's damn nice food. I deserve it after the weeks I go not eating.

    Fuck I thought my AIDS was bad.

    There is no known pharmaceutical or surgical cure for Crohn's disease.Treatment options are restricted to controlling symptoms, maintaining remission, and preventing relapse.

    Fuck man, just kill everyone, hell you got a free card do it. Get well soon.

    The only thing worse than self diagnosis is professional diagnosis for something less than life-threatening that people use as a crutch.

    My mum is a perfect example. She has medically diagnosed depression. She takes meds n whatnot for it. She's also succeeded in her filings for social security disability for it. Also have a friend that was diagnosed with mild OCD. Everything she does that pissed people off she blames on it. There are the occasional instances where the ocd contributes to her actions, but usually she's just being a worthless cunt.

    On the other hand, there's me. Off meds, I've been known to get 16 hours of sleep and do nothing productive while awake for months on end. I shake when making eye contact with strangers (even store clerks) because i get really nervous/anxious to get back to a comfort zone. Despite this, I still went to school/work and did the best i could.

    I'm on meds now, and while i have the occasional day where i go back to the non-med days (and who the fuck doesn't have a few days here and there like that), I'm a well adjusted, fairly successful person. I work my ass off, get shit done, and despite not liking most people, can function among them without any real problems.

    If you think there's a real problem get yourself checked out. Sure, it's somehow become hip to claim some self-diagnosed mental/physical problem and use it to your advantage. But don't be that guy. Be honest with yourself and those around you.

    RemadE, man that is one shit hand you've drawn. But props to you for truckin' through it like a goddamn man. Stay well, bud.

    It certainly can ;) just need to stop getting the munchies so bad otherwise I wake up like "HURRR my STOMACH". Still, as long as I don't overdo it.

    RogueEagle, I know exactly what you mean. It does seem to be the "cool" thing to have some sort of crutch. Really gets on my tits, and I think the less medical intervention the better. I'm one for minimalist pills and things as they all cross-interfere. Still, slept like a beauty last night. That stuff knocks me out.

    Ya, I completely agree with the whole self-diagnosis problem, but that's not to discourage at least looking into problems you suspect you may be having. You sure as hell shouldn't assume you have a disorder, just because you fit some of the criteria, but it's a good push towards talking to your doctor about it. You can't get help if you don't know you have a problem.

    Same here. It took a long time for me to even consider one prescription. Even that, I'm only on 15mg/day, which is a low dose. It's by no means some sort of miracle cure, it just takes enough of an edge off everything to function properly.

    Do you have a mental illness? Or are you just venting because you have to inject yourself once every two weeks?
