ADHD and ODD (Oppositional Defiance Disorder). Had a bad case of ADHD, was medicated for most of my life. Eating disorder that I've had since 11 months old (eating healthy food makes me physically ill).

Well,thank you all for sharing. It does not make me glad or happy to hear that there are others who suffer from other disorders, but as has been mentioned by Markkur, talking and or sharing things that help is always useful.
At least for me, the internet and music were my best friends back then and now aswell.

@Elvin

Thank you for your reply and Book suggestion.
From the quote you have taken, the book seems worth a try. Seems that the author tried to describe what would be a "Generalized" mental "construct"  The Ego,the person and the world.

@Xerox

By that you had to go through, I am convinced that you have been suffering from a psychological trauma. I can say that because I also had the "Pleasure" to suffer from bullying aswell. It takes a lot of time to and good things to bury those things.

@Fauch

I am sorry to tell you but putting intense love in the class of mental disorders is quite tasteless.  In fact, in think you are infatuated by that particular person.

@mvassilev
I understand its your opinion. But can you tell me why you said gullible people?
Its not like me or any sane person will completely agree with somebody's insight and therefore accept somebody's insight.
Though, I dont expect people can do any better so you may be right.

@Meroe

Thanks for speaking out. Just replying with words is barely ok to actually reflect on what you described.

@william
Very sad to read that. How are you faring with such odds?

well, it's what many people (especially young ones?) call "falling in love", a crush.

interestingly, people usually don't call those "intellectual infatuations" : "love"


intense love? are there degrees to love?? either you love, either you don't

Seraphim:
I said "gullible people" because a large number of people believe in nonsense that isn't based on reality: homeopathy, vaccines causing autism, New Age junk, aliens, The Secret, etc. All it takes is someone who wants to make money to have it endorsed by Oprah or someone of similar social standing or see it featured on some news program, and they believe it.

I happen to have Schizoid Personality Disorder, along with some other minor ones like OCD. Most people when they hear OCD they only think of the compulsions because that is all you see - handwashing, perfectionism, etc. There is an entire other half of the "disorder", the obsessions. To anyone else who has OCD look it up, if you are anything like me you will be relived to learn about obsessions, and that they are just a part of the OCD.

handwashing


Since when is hand-washing or cleanliness a disorder? Cleanliness is next to godliness as I always tell myself, I wash my hands after touching ANYTHING, water doesn't clean bacteria, I know that, but gives me peace of mind, I absolutely hate or full out barbarically sweat, meaning I'll shove my fist into the devils void if need be and I wouldn't care, but normally I can't stand any level of filth.

The thing is I can adjust myself to either polar opposite to meet the needs of a situation, but passively I'm the embodiment of cleanliness. :3

Curry!

@Mvass Homeopathy is not fault anything. Nature! For example, Alchemilla heal wounds. More than 2000 years old.. Is it hard to believe as a chemical? A pentecostal doctor writes that witchcraft return for medical.. They are for example. acupuncture, homeopathy, etc. Since it is not natural to believe..

That must be one boring life you lead if you need to resort to school/work to find entertainment.

Find some hobbies maybe?

I wash my hands 10+ times a day as well, I used to to it a lot more. That's OCD. I'm not saying we are wrong for washing our hands frequently.

Hand washing is a problem when it becomes a compulsion.  I. E. when you feel anxiety or physically I'll with dirty hands.

Not a disorder per se, but I definitely have serious issues I need professional help with(Read:I'm not sure exactly what label fits me, but I am seeing a shrink).

Didn't want to elaborate, would have been a bit awkward. Besides, I'm not sure it would be on topic, given that -as I said - it's not exactly a disorder, just a collection of "side effects" of a mountain of crap that has happened to me over the years. If You're still interested, I can HCM You, the only problem is that my story borders on the unbelievable, so there would be little point in sharing it anyway.

Look, as Elvin will no doubt confirm, it's not a story fit for sharing online. You know, one of those times when reality is stranger than fiction? I do not want to be regarded as the new Duke Falcon.

The most I can do is a vague outline: Picture all the wacky, underdog Disney protagonists, add all of their weaknesses together, subtract all their advantages, helpers and all the magic, remove the happy ending, and apply common sense.

Now You should have a fairly accurate idea of what's wrong with me.

EDIT: Yup, as usual, Elvin nailed it. Move along, move along...

I still get angry exceptionally easily and with such force that afterwards I think wtf. It scares people, especially my gf, so I'm trying to tone it down a bit. Regarding food, I'm alright. I usually get stomach pains but it goes away within a little while. I guess smoking doesn't help things but ah well.
