Hey you guys! My name is Haley, I'm 17, and have Borderline Personality Disorder. I dont think I've ever introduced myself...so HI!


lately I've been trying to distract myself from my dissociation...

I'm almost always crafting because it seems to be the best way for me to take my mind off of it.


I decided to enter sassybb.coms design contest to keep myself occupied!

I would really appreciate it if you guys could please vote for me!

I am not a designer...and have only been sewing for 2 weeks...but I tried really really really hard!

I'm sorry if this isn't allowed-please delete it if that's the case. I just thought this might apply to someone in here. If not-I hope everyone has a good day! :-)

Hey Girls/Guys

My first post here...

Hello all, my name is Renee, I'm 18 years old. I live in NY.

My mother died before my first birthday, and though strained, the majority of my childhood was good. I was sexually abused, and have a few less-than-pleasant memories of my father due to his drug use. He isn't using much these days though, so that's good. My relationships with family members are all very complex. But if I told you all about that here, it would eat up the whole page and probably scare some people away.

When I was 11 I was diagnosed with clinical depression and separation anxiety and put on Prozac. I had been suffering before that. The real change hit about 3/4 of the way through my 5th grade year. The Prozac gave me migraines so we switched to Zoloft. I was in family and individual counseling. Seventh grade showed progress, and I was weaned off of the meds. But by the end of the 8th grade, things had worsened again and I began to self-harm. I cut mostly, but preferred burning. Entrance into the 9th grade only made things worse. Eventually I was given the diagnosis of clinical depression again, this time put on Paxil - which I had a severe reaction to - and then Celexa and Klonopin. I didn't like my psychiatrist, she didn't listen to me. Or my father. My family had known all along that I didn't just have depression but that I was bipolar. I started to see another doctor, and we must have tried a million different medications. I miss him. He was the best psychiatrist I've seen so far.

Anyway, the diagnoses I have now are:
Bipolar II
Schizoaffective Personality Disorder (in connection with the bipolar)
Seasonal Affective Disorder
Generalized Anxiety/Panic Disorder
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

I am on Seasonale birth control, Cymbalta 30mg, Trileptal 450mg, and Ativan up to 2mg.
I have therapy once or twice a week and see my psychiatrist once a month.

hello, I am the community manager, and I welcome all highschool and college students who are in need of psychological support.

My name is Shani, I am sixteen years old and I have been diagnosed with depression and depersonalization. I have self-diagnosed myself with derealization and I am currently researching disassociation identity disorder, because in a lot of ways, it seems to fit me better than depersonalization and derealization, but I am not a psychiatrist, so I cannt really make that decision.

I have felt this way ever since I was either very little for my entire life. My shrink put me on wellbutrin and rispirdal, neither of which seem to be working very well. Last April I went to a psychiatric institution because I had overdosed, and this was when I was put on wellbutrin.

I started this community to help myself and to help others. I wanted to meet people who shared the same kinds of problems as me, and i wanted to learn from them. I hoped other people for find it useful to have a community like this one.

Good Luck!
