I've had so many diagnosis thrown at me through the years of therapy and so many different meds that I believe have been more harmful to me than good. My mother is diagnosed major depression, post tramatic stress disorder, sucidal tendencies, and borderline personality disorder. The last being the most recent diagnosis for her about 5 years ago. I'm constantly scared that I will end up like her. I have no relationship with her now by choice. Please don't hate me for that but honestly I think she would have destroyed everything that is good or means anything to me. I have a very bad temper, moodiness, irratibility. I go through periods where I can't sleep or sleep too much. I get very overwhelmed and don't deal with stress well. Over small sh-t too! I hate what the side effects of meds do. I'm going on now of two weeks of insomnia and low sex drive. Sometimes when I'm depressed I have thoughts that I "know" are crazy. I've just been really low lately due to stress with the relationship I'm in and a major fight with his parents. Does a label matter anyway? Is there another way besides meds??

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
