I know some people don’t like labels but it helps me knowing what is wrong with me.
I want to show that people can have these disorders and can sometimes manage them without going on disability. For now, I’m managing these via pharmaceutical medications but part of this journey, this quest I am on is to see what I can do more naturally to manage or disappear my myriad of maladies. I have these. They are not to be taken lightly. It will take a while to get to the point where I understand herbs and foods and how they work to help keep some of these at bay so I may not even ever get there. But that’s why they call it a journey, right?
I have the following disorders:
Clinical depression | Generalized anxiety disorder | ADHD | PTSD | baby bi-polar | baby OCD
and I’m an addict – a food addict – a spending addict
I am not on disability.
I work 32 hours a week at a small one-lawyer law firm to pay my bills (read: “it’s my day job.”) and I write a weekly article for our local newspaper, the Springfield Reporter.
