30-Days of Mental Illness Awareness Challenge – Day 8

mia-challengeIt’s been a few days since I did any of this challenge so I thought I would get back into doing this challenge.

Today’s question: What age you were diagnosed at?  At what age do you think your symptoms began? (You can make a timeline)

Some of my diagnoses came while I was a teenager while others came later in life. My anorexia dates back to when I was a teenager as does my depression. My PTSD came in my 20’s after a couple of bad experiences, which also brought my night terrors and nightmares. My OCD I was most likely born with or developed at a young age, although it wouldn’t be until later in life that I would actually be diagnosed with OCD. My BPD is a recent diagnosis, as is my adjustment disorder, and my avoidant personality disorder My panic disorder and generalized anxiety disorder diagnosis’ came in my early 20’s while my body dysmorphic disorder came prior to my eating disorders start. My sleep disorders have just been a part of my life for as long as I can remember and I can’t remember when those were diagnosed. The problem with having so many diagnosis’ is it get difficult remember just when each was diagnosed…
