Picked on growing up as a child. Lack of self-confidence leading to other health issues, such as being overweight. Bullying resulted in tendency to be quick to anger. Suppressed into violent thoughts resulting in horrible social skills, a lack of self-preservation, and manic behaviour leading to several attempted suicides at an older age (16-21). Today, driven, more positive and hopeful […]

I hope you like reading! I want to provide a lot of backstory and details here, so this is likely to be very extensive. This is incredibly important to me, so I want to provide as much information as I can muster for this box right now, though hopefully without too much unnecessary fluff. If more consolidation is needed, I’d […]

I have Tourette’s Syndrome, was diagnosed when I was about 7. The mental symptoms for me have mostly been around learning difficulties, due to finding it harder to concentrate as a child. I was also extremely argumentative, which I know was very difficult for my mom. I was a pain in the ass really haha and sometimes I’d argue just […]

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 […]

Basically, I’ve struggled my whole life with anxiety, but I wasn’t diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder until late in my high school years. I also suffer from Social Anxiety, so basically approaching any new situation or group of people is terrifying for me. I don’t enjoy going out, because I might somehow make a fool of myself, and it feels […]

I was always a ‘tightly wound’ child and teenager but developed depression and anxiety in my early twenties, due to the pressures of the workplace. When I had my first child I developed chronic PND and despite therapy and medication have not been able to ‘kick’ the Black Dog, so to speak. While things are manageable most of the time, […]

I suffer (suffer?) from a pretty wicked mix of Histronic Personality Disorder and Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Though, I do have a pretty hefty amount of empathy, which is considered unusual. As a streamer, professional gamer, and commentator, I see a lot of struggle in my everyday life. Most people consider narcissism to be a big ego or just being obsessed […]

Attention Deficit Disorder is viewed by everyone who doesn’t have it as a minor mental deficiency, but that’s often the way with things we don’t know about. I was diagnosed in yr5. The specialist said, “He’s in a fog and has to work through that to find anything everyone else takes for granted.” For me, I’ve discovered I can’t mentally […]

It’s difficult to remember what superiors or subordinates tell you (marching orders, or things you need to know about the game to improve them) on ADHD. For me personally, remembering anything when I’m not on my stimulants is incredibly challenging, sometimes impossible. I can forget something you just told me 20 seconds ago while you’re still talking to me. What […]

Aspergers for me wasn’t a problem until I turned 13. Up until then I had a few friends, but as I grew older I found it harder and harder to make other friends until suddenly I changed schools and found that I was alone. I didn’t care at first, especially since I still seemed “normal” in middle school, but when […]

Long-time sufferer of Depressive Disorder Not Otherwise Specified. In many ways, video games were an escape from difficult times with family, socially, and so on. Having gotten a therapist four years ago has really helped, and mental health is just as important as physical health in my experience. Not enough credit is given to taking care of your state of […]
