Yeah I don't have it. It's always good to get a different opinion.
I've had a doctor tell me I have it but my doctor now says I don't.

Diagnosed (other than SA):
Major depressive disorder

Undiagnosed (personal opinion):
Agoraphobia
Avoidant Personality Disorder
Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Every time I get an official "diagnosis" from a doctor, they always make sure to mention how "normal" I seem to them. I guess I'm good at masking my emotions. In my last evaluation, I had a very high score in the AvPD category, yet the psych somehow ruled it out because... reasons? Idk. Not like it really matters in the end. My head is still the same amount of ****ed up no matter what the classification is.

Everybody wants to go to heaven
But nobody wants to die
I can't fear death, no longer
I've died a thousand times
Why explore the universe
When we don't know ourselves?
There's an emptiness inside our heads
That no one dares to dwell

I fluctuate between believing my diagnosis and not. It's very possible that I'm just feeling good in between episodes though. I always start believing it again when I start feeling weird.

The problem with bipolar disorder too is that when people are taking their meds or they're between episodes they feel reasonably normal. (and then don't believe they have it)

Welcome to SAS btw - always nice to see a new face here.

I sometimes wonder if I am schizoid, I fit the profile pretty well but then I have anxiety around people and I'm married. I don't really want to see a therapist, because I don't think they can really help me because there just isn't a desire in me to want to be around people and to be frank, I don't think being independent and having a relatively solitary life is a bad thing for some people. If I were not married, I could see myself being pretty content just enjoying my hobbies, and the need to socialize or even have sex would not be really strong.



I get depressed from time to time, but it is not a constant feeling that lingers all of the time. Any anxiety I feel around people, is not necessarily of being judged, just what people may put into action due to what they may think of me.

Officially I think I have Avoidant Personality Disorder and OCD. I am pretty sure I have seasonal affective disorder, or some kind of mood disorder anyway,

My mood problems can be alleviated by the following:

1. Not having the neck problem
2. Socialising (esp femaloids, i like them better than maloids).

I also have a few specific phobias, but they aren't diagnosed. Afaik those two are my official diagnosis. I don't think anyone assessing me now would diagnose AvPD though, or even SA, its improved to such a level, and by the end of this year it will be non existent.

If someone would be prepared to swap necks, that would be great.

I was diagnosed with AvPD and MDD after a lengthy psych eval.

They call social anxiety disorder social phobia here. Technically I don't have a diagnoses but I was receiving treatment for it a few years ago. I don't think it's a disorder they bother diagnosing here they just quickly refer you for CBT if you seem to fit the symptom profile.

Other than that I have traits of ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, SzPD (schizoid,) AvPD, possibly depression of some kind but I don't think major depressive disorder, some general sensory and processing issues (which might be related to one of the things I mentioned or that I was diagnosed with selective mutism as a child which is also related to these issues.) Mild trichotillomania and skin picking disorder.

I have a bunch of odd issues that I've noticed are common with people on this site and online in certain places but don't seem to be tied to any one disorder kind of dissociative/compulsive/absorption/daydreaming oddness (think there's probably overlap between the symptoms and OCD and schizo-spectrum stuff - so the milder end like the related personality disorders and also AvPD, but tbh this set of symptoms seem to have confused people for some time I can think of several disorders created or proposed to vaguely capture stuff related to shyness and absorption/dissociation/attention/motivation issues each with slight variations on additional symptoms.)

Probably traits of other disorders too but that's the main stuff.

Some people heard my words and thought it meant they knew me
Truth is, I don't exist, I'm just a soundtrack to your movie
Some background figure in a story that's already scripted
And what I feel's just felt for you to hear me ****ing spit it
I jump in many different heads through these words and poems
Always hoping maybe the next leap'll be my leap home

Also mentioned in my therapists' notes* and/or in therapeutic discussion as potential diagnoses: Schizotypal personality disorder, avoidant personality disorder, obsessive-compulsive personality disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, Asperger's syndrome (this was suggested before the name/terminology was changed, but we were unable to do any followup/diagnosis before therapy was terminated).

(My psychiatrist as an adult also said I "act just like someone with PTSD" and requested I ask family members about possible childhood trauma (none of which I'm aware). Based on what I've learned since then, I think Asperger's could account for this (see below).)

What I myself believe I have: Social anxiety disorder and/or avoidant personality disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, a few specific phobias, Asperger's syndrome.

What I do not believe I have: Major depressive disorder (I fully believe my depression is secondary and is due to my anxiety and loneliness--it did not respond to various medications), attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (I believe Asperger's could account for this), schizotypal personality disorder (ditto), obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (ditto), generalized anxiety disorder (just a symptom of my other anxiety issues).


*I gained access to these while filing an appeal for SSI. "Schizotypal personality disorder" had been suggested by my psychiatrist as a teenager. I had never been made aware of that potential diagnosis (which I no longer believe applies) until years later when I obtained copies of her notes.

If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

As I'm not diagnosed officially (I don't attend any psychologists and therapies... At least yet...) beside SAD I'm quite sure about OCD and it might be also ADHD...

Even shy people can be sassy sometimes...
I'll put drunk raccoon in my signature as well, because I CAN...

I've been diagnosed with SAD and that's more than enough for me. I already know that I've been dealing with depression and some sort of anger issues most of my life. Personally I don't feel the need to be diagnosed with any other mental illness. I already know I'm focked-up in the head (just like so many other people) and there's nothing I can about it. Basically what I'm saying is there's no point in having a therapist diagnosed me or preach at me about my issues when there is nothing I can do but live/cope with my issues.
