24 Oct

MIA challenge

So here are the round up people who participated in responding to my twelfth prompt on the 30 Days of Mental Illness Awareness Challenge. If you participated and I haven’t added your post here, please pingback to the main challenge page with prompts or tag your post 30MIAC.

Day 12: What do you think about your diagnosis in general?  (Some ideas are: stereotypes, commonalities, misdiagnosis, over diagnosis)

From Pieces of Me which talks about Borderline Personality Disorder and the stereotypes that come with it, she also points out that to be diagnosed with BPD you only need to meet 5 of 9 criteria which can cause a lot of variety.

From All That I Am, All That I Ever Was which includes the answers to prompt 12 & 13.  He talks about the problems of diagnosis and getting treatment, which means that depending on what you are diagnosed with usually depends on the treatment you get.

From Remember to Breathe which includes thinking of her diagnosis as “a blessing and a curse.”

And my answers which includes each of my diagnoses whether I think they are accurate and stereotypes, misdiagnosis and over-diagnosis within each of the three diagnoses.

From Beyond Normal which mentions how she didn’t understand what bipolar was before getting the diagnosis but after being diagnosed with it and having it explained to her, it is the missing piece that explains a lot.

From Second Chances which talks about wanting to learn everything she can about her diagnosis as well as teaching others.

From Fashion Anxious who talks about how she is settled with her diagnosis of anxiety and thinks the depression diagnosis was likely related to how her anxiety was effecting her life.

From Battling the Demons Within who talks about how her diagnoses run together.

From That’s Crazy who doesn’t really have any feelings about her diagnosis.

From Pride in Madness who speaks about how Borderline Personality Disorder just feels like her and how she is okay with it, it’s others who are not.

**Thanks to all who participated and continue to spread the word**
