I suffer from bi-polar disorder. I think a lot of people on JUB have some problems and it's good that we can talk and help each other. My condition is controlled by medication, but I still have some very bad episodes as some of you long time jubbers know.

1989: anxiety disorder
No i don't.
I'm sure no one has a perfect mind.
NEVER LISTEN TO A ONE SIDED STORY AND JUDGE.
Happens every once in a while, treats by itself
Okay okay, as stated elsewhere, I have been diagnosed with Type 2 Bi-Polar disorder and am not currently on meds. It makes for some interesting days as I never know from one day to the next how I'm going to be feeling until I wake up.
Lately, for those interested, I've not been doing well. For those not interested, I'm still not doing well as, in general, people's interest or lack thereof doesn't affect my day-to-day.
Pianist, i once met a woman who cured her bipolar illness with a ketogenic diet.
She'd originally started the diet to lose weight, and to control sugar. After she'd been on the diet for some weeks, her husband began to notice that her moods had stabilized. After assessing the situation herself for a couple of more weeks, she agreed.
It's worth a try.
(I can get you a cite if you like.)
I'm not "bipolar" by classic definition, but I have ups and downs to a much lower extreme. Depression and low self esteem have been a part of my life since I was old enough to think on my own.
Does a little social anxiety count? Other than that I'm perfectly healthy.
Wow.... this would be an interesting dating question.... "DO you have any mental issues?"
Would save a lot of time...
Sure, I do.
I've been taking medication for depression for about two years.
I have clinical pure obsessional OCD. Was once ashamed of admitting it, but realized the 'mental health stigma' was fucking stupid, and I got over it pretty quick. I've managed it through medication in the past, but that was a disaster. Ended up going Black Swan insane on a few of them - so I was pulled off medication. I have a core network of friends that help me manage it. Haven't had a major meltdown in quite sometime.
Depression and ADD.
