I suffer from both severe anxiety and severe depression. This has been predominantly in 2014 but I have had anxiety all my life. This all developed when I had gastroparesis late 2013 and early 2014 where I had severe nausea. When that condition was resolved, I still found myself very nauseous, particularly when I was anxious. Because of this I […]

Way too much backstory to write it all down here, but to sum up: I have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, and Anxiety. I have put myself and others through Hell for most of my life, since childhood, in fact (I’m told). Finding therapists with extensive knowledge of BPD in this area is nearly impossible. There […]

Was in therapy or counselling from age twelve through eighteen, due to bullying igniting temper problems in Year 6 (Aus). Starting high school, the temper issues faded giving way to anxiety, depression and hypervigilance. I was diagnosed with Depression and General Anxiety Disorder between Year 8 and 10. I don’t remember much from those years, possibly due to the mental […]
