    PTSD < I was diagnosed one week after I was the victim of a violent assault back in grade 9- and am still suffering from it.
    Since then, a list of several other disorders have built up... although Insomnia and social anxiety were two that I'd been having trouble with since I was a small child... basically my doctors say that it all stems from my PTSD; although I have made amends and forgiven my attacker... and now I'm just afraid of everyone else!

    Currently I am only on medication for depression/anxiety.
    I don't take sleeping pills, because I don't have much luck with them... in my experience- they all just stop working after a couple of weeks.

    Major depression. Granted, the diagnosis came from our family GP, not a psychiatrist, but I trust his judgment. And, frankly, anyone who knows me would find it very hard to argue that I'm not depressed. The official diagnosis was made in summer of last year.

    I have been diagnosed with Moderate to Sever Anxiety, Clinical Depression, and Sever Insomnia.

    The depression and anxiety were both diagnosed about 5 years ago and have been medicated on and off since then.

    The Insomnia was more recent (about a year) and is currently being treated with medication.

    I've been diagnosed with severe depression, severe anxiety, social phobia, anorexia and am currently being assessed for borderline personality disorder. I was told I maybe bi-polar but other professionals think its more likely to be BDP.

    BPD and GAD, 3 months ago though it has Lasted for 10/15 years. It took 2 sessions of tests, and the time to search in my results, so about one month. But I had been in therapy for 5 months.

    I was originally diagnosed with Schizophrenia in 1990, 2 years later it was changed to Bipolar type 1. I see a psychiatrist and a CPN monthly. I have a history of non compliance with my meds :argh:

    Manic depression and paranoid schizophrenia. Which absolutely sucks as I've screwed up my A levels because of it (I was predicted three A's but was admitted to hospital so they could monitor the anti-pyschotic treatment). Was only diagnosed a few months ago but missed out on so much I can't do the exams this year, so have to retake next year but who's to say I'll be better by then...

    Claustrophobia. And I have that too, although not officially diagnosed.

    My Dx's are:

    Major Depression - Diagnosed April 08 - was as soon as I went for help, though I have had it since I was a kid.
    Generalised Anxiety Disorder - Diagnosed in about October 08 - again, pretty much as soon as I went for help for it, but had it for many years before that
    Social Anxiety Disorder - Diagnosed sometime late 08 or early 09 - only took a few months for this dx, but had it a long time beforehand
    Agoraphobia with Panic Disorder - Same as above
    Borderline Personality Disorder - Same as above
    Eating Disorder of a Restrictive Nature - same as above
    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - Diagnosed around November 08, pretty much straight away, although I've had it since I was very young
    Bipolar II - Not exactly sure when this was diagnosed, just know it's on my charts
    Dissociative Identity Disorder - Diagnosed April 09 - this Dx took about 7 months from when I first went for help, had to wait to get a decent psychologist
    Avoidant Personality Disorder - March 09 - didn't actually go for help for it, was just Dx'ed by my psych
    Body Dysmorphic Disorder - About April/May 09 - same as above
    Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - Most recent Dx, was only diagnosed with OCD in Feb 2010, though I've had it for years.

    Diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder, and major depressive disorder along with a bit of insomnia. Medications never helped me, until my psychiatrist asked to look at old report cards, and talked to me about some of my previous high school years. He realized I had innattentive ADHD, so I've been medicated for that, which seemed to clear up alot of my comorbid disorders, which seemed to be only side effects. Sometimes, the system/medication works. :smile:

    "acute and transient psychotic disorder :blink:

    erm...i think i need to tell them about "the girl in the corner," and how this is related to the above dry new diagnosis that doesn't see the cptsd/mpd thing underneath. i told my cpn about this, and she seemed to realise how fragile i am.
