Is Anyone Diagnosed With An Additional Mental Disorder?

Is Anyone Diagnosed With An Additional Mental Disorder?

Mine is anxiety, depression, and PTSD. What other matches are out there? and what do you think the difference and the similarities are? like between someone with anxiety and depression, and someone with ODD and depression, or bipolar and depression?

Major Depressive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, slight OCD.

I'm not a Dr I can't go into the physical side of the similarities of the disorders, but I do know that every person I've ever encountered with mental illness has had more than one problem. Maybe it's the area of the brain that is affected. Makes us more sensitive to stimuli than so-called normal people. Good question.

I've been diagnosed with a bunch of things, PTSD, Borderline Personality Disorder, Bipolar Disorder 2, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, and Major Depressive Disorder, with and without Treatment Resistance.

I found out later that most of them were manifestations of the serious negative effects of the excessive alcohol, and some drugs, that I was using to self-medicate under-treated Major Depressive Disorder. When I gave up drinking and drugging, things improved dramatically.

That's all that I have, a fairly typical (low energy) depression, with treatment resistance. I have some trauma from childhood from severe asthma though. It sensitised me towards anxiety, as I thought I was going to die, quite a few times.

I have major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder,,PTSD,,Agoraphobia, paranoia. I'm no doctor, but I think that, usually, depression and anxiety go together, it's like they feed off of each other. For me, anyway.
