What Is Wrong (and Right) with Me?

Wrong (i.e., problems):

  • Panic disorder, which initially presented with agoraphobia
  • PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)
  • An absurd amount of work-related stress, aggravating both of these conditions

Right (I’m glad I have these going for me):

  • Asperger’s (similar to high-functioning autism)
  • Ongoing professional treatment for the three problems listed above

Without Asperger’s (we call ourselves “Aspies”), which can help me shut down emotions when I need to, and look at things from a logical, problem-solving perspective, thinking out ways to cope with the first three would be virtually impossible. Also, without the professional treatment mentioned above, I’d be in a rubber room, or worse, by now.

These lists are obviously not complete. I’m focusing on things related to mental health, because I want to do everything I can to de-stigmatize mental health problems, and getting diagnosis and treatment for them, for everyone. That’s the purpose of this blog-post.

  1. Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you recommend starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are
    so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any recommendations? Cheers!

    • Thank you. My only suggestion is to practice a lot. Also, I would recommend starting with a free platform, yes. There’s no reason to pay to have a blog when WordPress will host one without charge.

  2. Hi there! This article couldn’t be written much better! Reading
    through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept preaching about this. I most certainly will send this post to him.

    Pretty sure he’ll have a very good read. Thank you for
    sharing!
