Annoyed trying to stay positive
Posted: Sun Aug 11, 2019 7:44 pm
Hi I'm new here, I'm 43 diagnosed ptsd and depression. I'm feeling annoyed because of the lack of mental health services and awareness when I was a child/teen. Because it was only 5 yrs ago I was diagnosed and struggled for many yrs wondering why I couldn't function like everyone else which would make me depressed. I'm glad it's more accepted and talked about these days. But I just discovered something new hence why I feel annoyed about lack of mental health when I was younger. So I watched a YouTube video that popped up on autism I didn't really know to much about it and I couldn't believe what they were describing was a light bulb moment I believe I'm on the spectrum, I did an online Dmv 5 test which confirmed it. So know I will have to seek help for that. If this had of been picked up earlier in my life I wouldn't of been so harsh and critical of myself, I understand know why I feel like I'm from another planet and why socializing is extremely challenging as well as sensory issues. I have had meltdowns when there is too many sounds, people, noise, cars etc and I finally understand what on earth that is. Thankyou for reading.
