wondering

does anyone have or/know anyone who has a diesases or something like that

i'll start. i have asperger's syndrome which isnt life threatening but has killed me when it comes to hanging out with people. my brain would say to me to not do it especially at nightimes. i would rather do it coz it feels better for me. i cant fight it coz theres no cure for it.

what i want is to have close friends in my life but this syndrome wont even let me hang out:(. sure i can talk to people i know or who i feel can have a convo with me but yeah i know its depressing. im not a night owl anyway. im ****ed.

and me on facebook. i dont feel like writing to someone who i hardly know because i can have a little fear that person wont write back and care about me. majority of people on my facebook dont care about me:(.


well thats my side of things:(. anyone who wishes to discuss can continue

Sorry to hear about that....:(:hug: I dont know what to say really.. I have something called Coeliac Disease but its not even a disease at all :hea: Its a allergy to Gluten (wheat,oats,barley and rye) so i have to have a strict diet. Its not bad now but i also get a skin allergy with it too just to make my life worse :rolleyes: I get quite paranoid and i wont wear T shirts/dresses and skirts ect. I also cant do things like swimming. It also makes me wary when meeting guys and stuff and how they will react :o It also gets annoyingmeeting new people and teaching them about what i cant eat and stuff bleh.

I have Aspergers as well. I don't consider it a disease or illness in any way. It's a mild form of Autism which affects the way we socially interact with others and how we adapt to everyday living. It's much more serious at a young age. By the time most people with Aspergers become adults, the condition is no longer easily visible. I still have a few flaws, and that is that I'm not sociable enough. I'm slowly improving though.

I've been interviewed on the subject by someone from the forum. I'll post it here:

How would you describe Asperger Syndrome?

I would descrice Asperger Syndrome as a condition which affects the way we interact socially with other people and the way we adapt to every day living. It's a mild condition that falls along the autistic spectrum. While more serious at a young age, by the time most people become adults, the condition is no longer easily visible.

How did your condition affect your social life?

Quite a lot. In my early years, I would never talk to the people around me. I always preferred to be alone. It affected me pretty badly until I was able to overcome all problems which Aspergers had caused me. Speaking to other people was the major problem, and because I wasn't able to socialise as well as normal kids, I began to feel depressed quite quickly, realising that I will have to start talking if I am to have a successful future.

How did you found out you had Asperger Syndrome?

My parents told me when I was diagnosed. I did not fully understand straight away, however. It was only a few years later that I began to understand and study the condition more in-depth. I was proud to have something unique, but at the same time, depressed. Proud because it made me more sensible and prone to accepting drugs or alcohol, but depressed because it affected my social life.

How did you cope with this?

At first, it was very hard to cope. A lot of the time, I was bullied and couldn't cope with it. But as I grew up and learned to understand the value of life, I wasn't at all intimidated. I was who I was. If anyone made fun of me, I would laugh along. But that was when I was close to overcoming my selective-mute condition.

Tell me someone of your characteristics related with Asperger Syndrome.

I have not met anyone in person who has the same condition as me. I do know a few people from this forum with it, though.

I read that Asperger is a type of Autism, did you also have the same symptoms with Austism such as delayed reading or repetitive behaviour?

Yes, it's a mild form of Autism. When I was much younger, I had many of the symptoms of someone with full autism, but my understanding was close to normal. I would often do repetitive behaviour, but I understood everyone perfectly fine. People with a severe case of Autism can't even speak, or understand. My sister is an example. She has Autism, and can't talk. Though she understands some things expressed through actions; e.g. pointing.

Did Asperger Syndrome make school hard for you?

I wasn't able to get good grades at school all the time, but I don't think I would blame that on Aspergers. That had much more to do with motivation or discipline, as it is with normal people. I was just lazy. Not exactly dumb. I was quite bright, actually.

Your sister had austism? So did this mean that Autism runs through the family?

Yes, Autism can be a genetic trait common among families. Saying that though, me and my sister are the only ones with cases of Autism in our entire family.

How exactly did you overcome your selective mutism?

It was the hardest thing in the world to do. I wouldn't have been able to do it without the help of a psychologist. He helped me raise confidence in little steps at a time. Eventually I was confident enough to start speaking to everyone I know. Though very difficult. I am glad I have finally overcome it.

So, you were depressed. Is this common for someone with Asperger Syndrome?

I think it's common for a lot of people, to be honest. The one other guy I know that has Aspergers has said he's been depressed. My dad would agree that depression is common in Aspergers as well. I would think it's mainly because of our social impairment.

I have a condition called Dyspraxia here some info on it as not many people know what it is:

Symptoms

People who have dyspraxia often find the routine tasks of daily life such as driving, household chores, cooking and grooming difficult. They can also find coping at work is hard. People with dyspraxia usually have a combination of problems, including:
Gross motor co-ordination skills (large movements):

* Poor balance. Difficulty in riding a bicycle, going up and down hills
* Poor posture and fatigue. Difficulty in standing for a long time as a result of weak muscle tone. Floppy, unstable round the joints. Some people with dyspraxia may have flat feet
* Poor integration of the two sides of the body. Difficulty with some sports involving jumping and cycling
* Poor hand-eye co-ordination. Difficulty with team sports especially those which involve catching a ball and batting. Difficulties with driving a car
* Lack of rhythm when dancing, doing aerobics
* Clumsy gait and movement. Difficulty changing direction, stopping and starting actions
* Exaggerated 'accessory movements' such as flapping arms when running
* Tendency to fall, trip, bump into things and people

Fine motor co-ordination skills (small movements):

* Lack of manual dexterity. Poor at two-handed tasks, causing problems with using cutlery, cleaning, cooking, ironing, craft work, playing musical instruments
* Poor manipulative skills. Difficulty with typing, handwriting and drawing. May have a poor pen grip, press too hard when writing and have difficulty when writing along a line
* Inadequate grasp. Difficulty using tools and domestic implements, locks and keys
* Difficulty with dressing and grooming activities, such as putting on makeup, shaving, doing hair, fastening clothes and tying shoelaces

Poorly established hand dominance:

* May use either hand for different tasks at different times

Speech and language:

* May talk continuously and repeat themselves. Some people with dyspraxia have difficulty with organising the content and sequence of their language
* May have unclear speech and be unable to pronounce some words
* Speech may have uncontrolled pitch, volume and rate

Eye movements:

* Tracking. Difficulty in following a moving object smoothly with eyes without moving head excessively. Tendency to lose the place while reading
* Poor relocating. Cannot look quickly and effectively from one object to another (for example, looking from a TV to a magazine)

Perception (interpretation of the different senses):

* Poor visual perception
* Over-sensitive to light
* Difficulty in distinguishing sounds from background noise. Tendency to be over-sensitive to noise
* Over- or under-sensitive to touch. Can result in dislike of being touched and/or aversion to over-loose or tight clothing - tactile defensiveness
* Over- or under-sensitive to smell and taste, temperature and pain
* Lack of awareness of body position in space and spatial relationships. Can result in bumping into and tripping over things and people, dropping and spilling things
* Little sense of time, speed, distance or weight. Leading to difficulties driving, cooking
* Inadequate sense of direction. Difficulty distinguishing right from left means map reading skills are poor

Learning, thought and memory:

* Difficulty in planning and organising thought
* Poor memory, especially short-term memory. May forget and lose things
* Unfocused and erratic. Can be messy and cluttered
* Poor sequencing causes problems with maths, reading and spelling and writing reports at work
* Accuracy problems. Difficulty with copying sounds, writing, movements, proofreading
* Difficulty in following instructions, especially more than one at a time
* Difficulty with concentration. May be easily distracted
* May do only one thing at a time properly, though may try to do many things at once
* Slow to finish a task. May daydream and wander about aimlessly

Emotion and behaviour:

* Difficulty in listening to people, especially in large groups. Can be tactless, interrupt frequently. Problems with team work
* Difficulty in picking up non-verbal signals or in judging tone or pitch of voice in themselves and or others. Tendency to take things literally. May listen but not understand
* Slow to adapt to new or unpredictable situations. Sometimes avoids them altogether
* Impulsive. Tendency to be easily frustrated, wanting immediate gratification
* Tendency to be erratic ń have 'good and bad days'
* Tendency to opt out of things that are too difficult

Emotions as a result of difficulties experienced:

* Tend to get stressed, depressed and anxious easily
* May have difficulty sleeping
* Prone to low self-esteem, emotional outbursts, phobias, fears, obsessions, compulsions and addictive behaviour

Not all of these symptoms I suffer from, but it has effected me a lot especially in the anxious/stress department :( I also have the addictive personality and the low self esteem and I can't throw and catch to save my life. I was diagnosed as a young kid.

Are you? I couldn't imagine being colorblind. Sorry to hear that.:o

Contrary to common belief, very few cases of colourblindness mean seeing no colour at all, it usually just means not being able to differentiate colours from each other.

Although really, im sure its nothing compared to other disorders and the like.

Suffering from bulimia was horrible. Everytime I ate something a had to vomit immediately after.

I have a congenital (meaning from birth) Heart defect. Known as Pulmonary Atresia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulmonary_atresia). It's not actually bothered me at all in life :) I don't want to explain it, as it'll take me a lot of talking. So I've provided a link to wikipedia on info for it ;)


I knew a girl at my school who had Down Syndrome and hearing problems, her name was Kirsty, she was such a sweet girl. But a lot of people took the **** out of her, so they got into trouble lots of times. I was great friends with her, though she fancied me. She'd sometimes in form do dirty dances in front of me, she did have a habit in doing that a lot lol. But she left before I finished year 10. There was another girl called Kelly, in my form and she was dyslexic. She and I would try and control Kirsty in form, but when we tried to get her to stop doing bad things, she'd get really angry and mad. Then she'd start talking jibberish, about me having an affair, or gossiping about someone... bless.

It was at first hard to understand what she was saying, but as time went on for months, I understood literally anything she said. She even stood up to the people, taking the mick out of her. She'd say things to them, but they wouldn't understand her. She'd say things like 'Shut Up' etc. But they'd ask me what she's saying, so I'd tell them and they wouldn't be bothered and would still take the mick out of her.
What I then decided to do, was to take it a higher level, so when she told them like go away or something, I'd tell them that she said them to **** off! So they'd then shut up themselves, and look shocked. 'What comes around, goes around'.

I still miss Kirsty, she was so nice, and a good friend.
Not being mean or anything but if they do find a cure for down syndrome, well that'd annoy me because I think they're actually quite sweet people, unless if their problem bothers them. Can't we at least be more caring and treat them as if they're normal human beings?

I don't know why I got offended, it was probably because it was so out of the blue when she said it lol.

Exercising is hard because of how inflamed my airways and bronchoils are...

When I was little I used to get bronchitis evey month or so...

Whats worse is that my tonsils, are really big and which made it even harder for me to exercise and breathe... I have to rest longer than other people...

And I remember the hiking trip in the sixth grade, It was strenious, I wasn't able to continue hiking, I had to walk back down and wait for the others... and the other kids said it was the funnest field trip all year D=...

Eczema

Basically, my skin dries easily which results in me feeling itchy all over my body. If I don't use creams or moisturizers then I'll end up scratching myself until either A.) I get a rash or B.) I scratch too hard and bleed. I've always had Eczema but it never really grew out of control until I was 8 when i had to be hospitalized for it. At that point my skin was "raw" and bleeding behind the knees/elbows and around the neck. After that it subsided until 2 years ago when it came back. I used to be annoyed by it because I would always have itches while I ate, during sleep, in the shower, on the toilet! :vlol:

And because of it, I have these scars all over my legs which make me feel a bit self-conscious when it comes to wearing shorts and people asking me about my scars. And I have this annoying scar on my neck which many people keep pestering me if it's a hickey. :rolleyes:

Although there's no cure for Eczema I've gotten use to it to the point I don't even realize I'm scratching so it doesn't interfere with my daily life anymore. And as long as I remember to keep my skin moisturized and use medical creams then the itchiness isn't bad and easily overlooked.

EDIT: I just realized that as I spent time reading over my post for grammatical/spelling mistakes, I was scratching behind the knee non-stop the entire time. :o

I was gonna say OCD...but I believe that everyone has it. It's just stronger in others. Everyone has little things that they must do. Even if it is a side of the bed. Mine include:

-I have to walk on the left side of somebody
-I can't have any light on when I go to sleep
-I can't have any foods touching each other (apart from Sunday dinner!! :hug:)
-If I press up on my phone keypad then I have to press down. Same with left and right.

But my "disease, syndrome, disorders, illness" is that I can change moods almost instantly. I can go from being on a total high and then go straight into a downer.

I have Endometriosis, which is a disease of the reproductive organs. It attacks the uterus, ovaries, and outside of the uterus, and causes severe pain, internal bleeding, and if left untreated, destroys the reproductive organs and spreads elsewhere in the body. It can lead to Endometrial cancer.

Mine was caught early because it's hereditary and my mother had it (towards the end of it, she almost bled to death) and had a complete hysterectomy when she was 34 (removal of all reproductive organs) to save her and so she could get better. It caused me very much pain, extreme bleeding, and trips to the ER before I was put on medication.

There is no cure, but being on constant birth control without monthly breaks in between packages stops the disease from spreading and I get no "monthly visits" because they're just too much for me to handle. So right now, it's in remission.

I don't know the long-term side effects of taking constant birth control other than vitamin depletion (I've been on them for 5 years and I take multivitamins now), but I'm sure it's better than bleeding everyday on the inside and destroying my reproductive organs, along with intense pain and completely stopping my life because I'm unable to leave my home. I also do want children one day.

I have another issue, but I don't feel like talking about that one.

*books whole forum into day spa* Seems we all need some serious TLC :p

Hmm... I'm recovering from ten years living with M.E (or chronic fatigue syndrome, if you want the term I can actually spell). My family has a history of depression/schizophrenia, diabetes, endochrine problems and high cholesterol, so I get my blood monitored semi-regularly.

On a plus note however, I'm almost off the antidepressants I've been taking since I was fourteen :yah:

Like some other people on the forums, I have the Asperger Syndrom. I was told it was more of a gift than a disorder, I have never really agreed with that though, due to the social downsides of it. My childhood was completely **** because of it, but as I have grown older I have learned to fight it back and it isn't nearly as bad as it used to be.

Well, apart from that there is nothing else I can think of. :)

I have ADD. I wasn't diagnosed until a few years ago (I am 25) which sucked because I was always told I was lazy etc. because I would zone out when told to do something.

My son was recently diagnosed with a form of autism. He's close to asperger's except he as a speech delay. For those with it, how can I help him? He's six now.

Symptoms disappear as you grow up. Not entirely, but to the point where they are not noticeable. I used to be far, far worse when I was young. I was seen as autistic.

Yep, that's dermographia. Also, I get massive raised handprints if someone slaps my arms (much to the amusement of my friends, who slap the crap out of me all the time just to see it). And if I ride a bike down a really bumpy path, my arms go really red and itchy. Bah!

I have nothingly overly life-threatening.

Restless Leg Syndrome. It's extremely irritating, and can get quite painful. I've never spoken to my Doctor about it but recently, it's been making my whole body jerk when in bed so I considered speaking to her the other week. I'll need to make an appointment once the rush of uni has died down a bit.

I'm also a bit OCD with locks and switches. I can lock a door, for example the back door in the room where the dogs sleep, and I will leave KNOWING I've locked it, but still having a horrible feeling that I need to check it..this happens a few times and then I'm usually happy. It's the same with other locks and switches as well.

Restless Leg:


Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) is a fairly common but often overlooked disorder affecting movement and sleep. A person with the condition has unpleasant sensations in their legs and an overwhelming urge to move them.

Although the condition was recognised as early as the seventeenth century, it was first described by Swedish neurologist Karl-Axel Ekbom in 1945. The disorder is sometimes referred to as Ekbom syndrome.

In the UK just over 1.5 million people (3% of the adult population) are known to have RLS. However, the actual figure is thought to be significantly higher. Women are more likely to be affected by the condition, and it generally tends to affect people as they get older.

The uncomfortable sensations of RLS are often triggered by inactivity, and can be improved by movement. Symptoms are usually more noticeable in the evening and, for some people, they can cause difficulty sleeping.

I take medicines that help me breathe, help me breathe with my nose (which is impossible without them) and stop the sneezing, coughing and runny noses. ;)

And hmm, I don't know if I have the skin thing. Does it come with the Celiac, or is that something separate? What does your skin do? My skin turns red if anything touches it, but I thought that was just the way I am O.o lol

^ So sorry to hear that :hug: I had terrible depression from a super early age. I think I was just born on the more sensitive and self-destructive side. But since I've gotten married I've completely stabilized, so now I'm starting to wonder if my family caused such stress and depression. I didn't think I'd ever feel better, but things really actually did get so much better. And I hope the same happens for you :D

I herniated the C6 disk in my neck last year. My left arm was tingling for a month like ants were crawling up and down it. I finally went to the doctor and took medcations to heal the disk - steroids, muscle relaxants and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories. I got an MRI. It healed up without surgery. But for the rest of my life, I can't play sports. I have to be careful. I'd say it took about 9 months to feel normal again. I was very lucky, because surgery is a big deal for that.

I haven't been diagnosed with anything yet... Except I have keratosis pilaris on my arms and a bit on my legs... :D But I've been given some cream and it'll hopefully go away... :)

One of my brothers and my mum have diabetes. My mum also has Lupus and all that... :whi: She's ill alot.

I'm allergic to a type of penicillin (How do you spell that? XD) and that's all I know :D

I have terrible insomnia... Am up till all hours of the night :P But I make the most of it (A.K.A. If I'm not asleep by 1am I either start writing or reading and all that and eventually I driifttt to sleep :))

I think I had swine flu... and infected quite a few people in my class... :o
And I have a chest infection. :)

I also have headaches alot. :D But a paracetamol can always cure that!:D

I think it's where it makes your skin and the whites of your eyes go yellow-ish.

Jaundice happens when your liver is shutting down (I believe). When I was diagnosed with spherocitosis, they thought I might be jaundiced because it also makes the whites of my eyes very yellow.

Nothing that has been proven by the doctor (note: haven't been to doctor in years), but I think I might have anxiety (random attacks here and there) and slight asthma.

Nothing compared to my parents. My mother has diabetes, paranoia and hallucinations and depression. My father? Here's the list:

Marfan syndrome (flexible joints/tissue, risk of aorta tearing apart)
Chronic headache
Double scoliosis (which gives him the lovely pain that he cannot sometimes move at all)
Rheuma
Clinical depression
random blackouts here and there where he might wake up on the floor.

Needless to say I'm the lucky one here. I've got nothing compared to them. I don't even have the marfan syndrome even though there is a huge chance it will be transferred from father to son.

Wow, I haven't heard of Marfan Syndrome but it sounds terrifying. My parents are relatively healthy. Kind of. My Dad has high blood pressure and is an alcoholic. He also smokes at least four packs a day. My mom drinks and smokes a lot too but not as much as my dad, but since that's not hereditary (well, I've heard alcoholism can be but idk) I try not to let it effect me. My Grandma on my dad's side has diabetes so I'm a little worried about that.

I would look it up but i can't be bothered! lol. Anyways, Jaundice is when there aren't enough blood cells being produced in the liver.. which causes the skin to go yellow and the white of your eyes to go yellow too. It doesn't mean your livers shutting down btw.
