Hey! Not formerly diagnosed with anything, having just avoided anorexia criteria by a couple of pounds. But I am a psych major, and I have a stunning track record of being attracted to bipolar types. And dating them.

Are us fangirls welcome here?

i think you should be welcome Smiley

you may say im a dreamer, but im not the only one

I seriously doubt that I am officially diagnosable, but I tend to wax and wane - sometimes I can hardly bring myself to leave the house because it means I will have to interact with people, and I have almost failed courses due to being completely unable to a) raise my hand and participate, and/or b) walk into a class after it's started, even if the prof has just begun lecturing. Goodbye, participation and attendance marks!  "Painfully shy" doesn't really seem like much of a diagnosis, though.
At any rate, I am in favour of cheering-up items and I would love to join this swap!

This sounds like it could be really fun! I have BPD and ADD, with a touch of OCD. yay for TLA's!(three letter acronyms for those not in the know Wink )

I have OCD and major depression. Lately I have been really open about my OCD with my parents and boyfriend and it makes me sad that some people do not get it. Right now I am taking two herbals 5htp and l-thenine to help my stress and anxiety...

I wish I could find someone who understood what I go through. Daily I feel suicidal, I feel like I have to please everyone, sometimes I do not like to be touched and just left alone...It sucks. I wish I could find help with my budget.

I think it's really great that there is so much interest! It makes me happy! So a few questions,
-When would be a good sign-up/send-out date for everyone?
-What sizes of items/how many to send?

i think its a great idea, and if i wasn't so busy for the next few months i would totally join in... but i'll have to keep an eye out for it... i've never been formally diagnosed, but i have been depressed (recently, and thankfully, doing really well in that dept.) and i have what my friends lovingly call ADOS (attention deficit ohhhh shiny lol XD) but is most likely add, and i have a friend with add, and her brother has adhd... and i have a severe (and i mean, severe like the nurse makes us leave because i saw the needle for blood tests on the table, and freaked and paniced and all that) needle (injections, or blood test kind) phobia... and though i am over wheight, i tend to binge and then barely eat for weeks, even if i don't mean to.... so this is an awesome idea in my mind...
