Am I immature or emotionally weak for having AD?

When I was a preteen I was diagnosed with situational depression, now I see it is identified as adjustment disorder. I had depressive symptoms for several months, even to the point of self harm or wanting to die. I was constantly sad, hopeless, and lonely. The event in question that triggered this was a falling out my best friend / crush, which evolved into thinking nobody liked me when it separated me from the rest ...

Looking for some diagnostic ideas

If someone were to ask me, “What do you do for fun?” My honest answer would be: “Avoiding people on Adderall while perusing through online psych forums and self-diagnosing myself through the process of elimination – whilst simultaneously diagnosing all of those of which I interact with, and to mix it up, a bit of mild obsessive ex stalking afterward.” I am not even sure if I am stalking - or if I'm addicted to ...

Counselling for AD?

The last few years of my life have been very up and down, in terms of events that have happened. Some good, and some really, really bad. The last year especially has been traumatic for me emotionally. No one's died thankfully, so i know it could 'always be worse' but that's not making me feel any better. I was at my lowest after a very stressful and upsetting earlier on in the year. Just when ...

Job loss. Not coping

About a month ago my husband (sole bread winner) lost his job. He is doing well, being patient, understanding that things will take time and getting out and about meeting people. I am a total mess, everyday is a struggle, not being as patient as i should with the kids, bouts of tears and hopelessness. So scared for our future, even though his employment prospects are probably quite good. Just feel like exploding with the ...

I'd Like to Stop Being Incompetent, Please

I really want to tell myself that I've just been having some bad luck lately.

This is the same friend who previously told me to stop being such a doormat around this guy. My ...

Being honest with my physician

I am 22 years old, and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder NOS around six months ago after a suspected manic episode, triggered by the initiation of an SSRI.

Unfortunately, nothing has improved thus far, and I'm actually tempted to say things are getting worse. However, I can say that I have not been very forthcoming with how I've actually been feeling. My family seemed to expect a complete 180 degree change after the start of ...
