Disabled nonbinary trans person having a situation

Hey, all. As many of you may be aware, I have bipolar disorder. I also am in recovery from an eating disorder and am dealing with the aftermath of a nasty relapse that landed me in the hospital. In March 2014, I applied for disability benefits, and on September 6 of this year, I will … Continue reading Disabled nonbinary trans person having a situation

Felt that I was in this long, dark tunnel.

(also on tumblr) A natural question, for me, is what sorts of things (if any) are not potential sources or catalysts of PTSD. Virtually anything could become traumatic for a given individual. I might be wrong, but this is how it seems to me. This is how my experiences make it seem. In any case, … Continue reading Felt that I was in this long, dark tunnel.

What do I want? What is important to me? What is worthwhile? (and other mundane questions)

I wish I could work on something, just about anything, without feeling the need … Continue reading A lecture, a news feed, an abstract algebra textbook, and a language app: into the wild green yonder of ADHD

(Mental) healthcare while trans

My psychiatrist told me today that he’s planning on retiring in October. He says it’s been a long time coming. I’m happy for him if that’s what he wants to do, but I’m also worried for myself, because I consider myself lucky to have ended up with him for the last year. Before I started … Continue reading (Mental) healthcare while trans

Dual/triple/quadruple(?) diagnoses

I'm seeing my psychiatrist today. I'm going to ask him to give me Strattera and possibly Latuda, both of which I can get through patient assistance, since I'm uninsured and essentially destitute. I'm just not sure he'll go for it. My therapist suggested I might have ADHD, without any prompting from me, just based on … Continue reading Dual/triple/quadruple(?) diagnoses
