Does anyone have a mental illness?

Does anyone else here have a diagnosed mental illness?

I have Borderline/Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder, Dysthymic Depression, Mood Disorder and Anxiety.
My depression has got worse over the last six months because of my Fibro which I hear is common.

Anyone else have what I have?

Quite a few of us have a mental illness, it seems to be another of the problems that tags along with FM. My personal demons are anxiety and depression. When I'm up I'm buzzing, but when I'm down it's a real crash and burn and both are equally exhausting :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: No joy in finding a calmer middle/balance so far, just slight differences in the swing of things :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout:

You're definately not alone. Think depression and anxiety go hand in hand with FM. Certainly do in my case. My self esteem and confidence are shot to pieces and I don't think the isolation this condition causes as well as the onstant pain and exhaustion help. My advice, find something you love doing and do it often. I bought a horse. I often can't ride due to FM but just having him really helps. Hope you find something that helps you.

I'm seeing my psychiatrist today. I've not been coping too well as I've had a really stressful few months - in the space of 3 weeks my brother in law died, I was diagnosed with Fibro and Cervical Spondylosis, Disc Degeneration, Under Active Thyroid and Severe Anaemia. I'm just having a rant, it helps to write it down as I don't have anyone apart from my fiance to talk to about my problems, and he's been through enough lately what with losing his brother (not a nice death either). I hope 2013 will be easier for me....at least I have my wedding to plan and look forward to!

Another one with severe anxiety and mild depression (controlled by meds)
I'm starting a "mood something or other" course end of feb - don't hold out much hope lol
I've had anxiety long before the fibro tho, since childhood my mum thinks, probably connected to mum and dads messy break up and dads useless parenting skills (but he's the BEST grandparent so making up for it!)

Having lily is the best medicine for me, I have strength when I'm with her to do daily tasks like take her to preschool three times a week, go to toddler group occasionally (that was a HUGE thing for me, going alone to a place I don't know what to expect and don't know anyone - anxiety attack trigger)
Luckily as long as I don't miss my meds I stay above the cloud and can talk myself out of potentially difficult scenarios, I do avoid lots of things still but I'm getting there :-) this is the reason I can't work, more so than the fibro pains etc
Xx

yes i also have borderline personality disorder,so it took me a long time to get dx of fibro,because they said it was all in my head,social services have taken my children away when i got bpd in feb 2011,they say i do not have the ability to parent with mental health and fibro,i have to sign the children over to foster carer next tues,i am heart broken and stressed out,which is not helping my mood or pain! and i only get to see my children once a month,i have asked for more access but the social worker is not helping me at all,she is making things worse! they are to stay in care until 18,they are 10 and 13 at the moment,marianne p xx :too-upset: :scream-1:
