General Discussion / New here...
« on: July 02, 2015, 11:13:27 am »
Just want to say thank you for having this forum of support.  I live with dysthymia (chronic mild-moderate depression), as well as post traumatic stress disorder (anxiety disorder with other symptoms such as somatization, flashbacks, insomnia, etc.)

I have had a lot of help to deal with my m.h.  I have recently clued in to the fact that I have been stigmatized by most people in my life.  It has taken me many years to become aware of this.  I had thought that I was doing things "wrong", that I was not "enough", and that I must somehow be causing people to exit my life.   It is a huge relief to me to realize that is STIGMA...not me personally!!

Not to say that I like being stigmatized...but it feels better to know that it is a generalized reaction people have to people who are sufffering from chronic illness..mental and /or physical.

I look forward to participating in the discussions on MDAO.

Again...thank you all for being there.
