Default Welcome
Mental Illness can be very hard to live with, or if you have family with mental illness it can also be very hard. There of course is a huge amount of stigma to mentally ill people, but very many mentally ill people lead normal, average lives with little or no problems and do fine on medicine. This group is for you to discuss anything about the problems with being mentally ill, or if you have family who is mentally ill.

I have Asperger syndrome too. I have had a rough time with communicating and socializing for many years, and have been shunned/derided by enough people to have developed a deep distrust of the outside world because of having to deal with living with Asperger's.

Morning, I just joined (I'm up way past my bedtime but its that time of year when I feel allowed to be.)

For the "register" - I'm a proud resident of the fair land of Cyclothymia. (A form of bipolar. I've never been so trendy as when I got diagnosed with this!)

I trust everyone has charted some kind of route through the hazardous waters of Christmas, and we are contemplating the shores of the New Year with the usual hope/trepidation?

(Sorry if I'm a little erm... anyway. Hi )

I've been hospitalized twice for treatment resulting from major depression. Unfortunately I was a kid first time around and my mom never followed up with doctors for me when I got out so it took me a long time to figure out what sadness was "normal" and what wasn't, and sometimes I'm still not sure. Luckily I had a great support system of friends and I moved away from a major source of my issues (my mom) years ago and have been pretty happy ever since! I hope any and all simmers on here who have ever experienced chemical or chronic depression get the help & support they deserve because life can get better and it will get better.

You've got autism too? I didn't know that

I've got mild a-typical autism and, what seems like, bipolar depression
