I was told most of my life that I had boarderline personality disorder, with anxiety, depression and PTSD. We came to discover from a recent mental health counselor that all of my symptons came down to being on the autism spectrum. My whole life I knew something was different about me but no one was able to figure it out. Now that I have a answer to some of how my brain processes information, it seems easy to say it is the autism but do I still have depression or is it all just symptoms of sensory overload? I don't know. If any of you have stories to share about how you know you are having a moment of sensory overload it would help me to find similarities and differences in the depression and the autism. Mental health workers still treat me as if they can treat all of my problems with talk therapy and medication but I now know it is not that easy. Or if any of you out there experience depression and autism, how do you know the difference? Does the autism prevent you from working through the emotions of depression?
Anything can help
hi first off I know everyone is different and a support group can’t diagnose me. I have a problem I’m not sure if I have one thing or many. So growing up I was brutally bullied in school. This sounds weird but Since about 3rd grade I kinda created a fantasy in my head, it started with me thinking I was a horse, or a lion, then as I got older it was stuff like I’m a famous musician, actor....
And the rollercoaster continues. Bipolar type 2 is so exhausting. Thursday I was beyond maniac it was absolutely amazing I love being maniac. Then the crash. The severe depression. The loneliness that grows and overwhelms everything. And then for a few hours back up I felt great. Now back down with a crash. I feel like a black hole. All empty. Idk. Goodbye I guess.
