Yeah, I constantly get the question of "What is wrong with you." To clarify, there is a lot that is 'wrong with me'.
I have Trichotillomania, which is an anxiety disorder that compells me to pull out my hair. I don't have eyebrows or eyelashes.
I am transgender, and Identify as a male, though i am physically a female.
I am pretty sure I'm partially insane
I am socially awkward and suffer from Antisocal Personality Disorder
I have been reffered to as a psychopath, sociopath, and a lunatic.
Share your opinion if you want, or rant about what is 'wrong' with you.
But in my personal opinion (and a quote from a friend)
"We only have flaws because we couldn't all be completely perfect."
I'm anti-social but I don't have that. And Author, as a friend I don't think there is anything wrong with you and I want you to know I am here if you ever need to talk, ok? I think you are cool and fun and creative :)
I have asthma
Hyper-mobile-joint-syndrome, which means all my joints move too much (so I can pop my elbows inside out :D )
I have depression and I have since I was born because I have the mental disorder where your brain doesn't make enough endorphins
I am allergic to grass :P
I have been bullied a lot and I have recieved 3 dea.th threats
I'm weird :)
But I'm happy with who I am and wouldn't want to be anyone else.
You are both wonderful--flaws and all :)
This is what I've been TOLD is wrong with me:
I talk too much
I'm an airhead
hmmm...I'm sure I've received more personal attacks than that, but I can't think of the rest right now haha not that I agree with all of those things...
What actually IS wrong with me:
I either talk way too much or not enough.
Even though I'm pretty smart, I come off as a total airhead so I get teased
I think I have major trust issues (which makes it hard for me to figure out if I realistically have friends or not...)
I do not particularly like myself right now
Most of the time I do not feel anything but numbness :/
Depression and self-injury :,(
My skin is really sensitive so it puffs up when you scratch it...I actually find it really cool
I'm allergic to dry-erase board markers O.o
I've always eaten super weird because my mom is a health-freak. I'm a vegan and LOVE it :D
I'm extremely sensitive to the cold and have bad blood circulation.
I have a weak stomach and get nauseous easily, especially in the mornings...
I have a REALLY hard time connecting with people
Even though I don't like all my flaws, I am definitely proud to be imperfect :D
Phoo, here we go.
Type One Diabetes.
An extremely long list of allergies.
Super sensitive skin.
Bad joints. They run in the family. One of my cousins recently got an ankle replacement. If I try to run I easily twist my ankles, and my knees hurt.
I'm short and a bit overweight (5'2" and 130-something pounds). And it's really hard to diet, because I can't eat anything. >.< All these diets say stuff like, "Eat lots of whole grains." I'm ALLERGIC to whole grains. And I can't exercise whenever I want because of the Diabetes. If i passed out on a biking trip my mom would kill me.
I never properly leanred how to talk to people. I really don't know how, and I'm awkward as heck. I'm not shy, just awkward.
No one ever understands my metaphors and analogies.
I have so many skills that one of my sisters hates me. You'd think that being good at any craft you try would be cool. -_-
People tell me I talk too fast and they can't understand me.
I get random bouts of insomnia/nocturnalness. The past few days, for example, I can't fall asleep any time before 4 am, and some nights I don't fall asleep at all. I do school at night in case I fall asleep during the day (I homeschool, so I can do that).
Whenever my little sister is mad at me and she yells, "What's wrong with you?" I reply with, "I don't know, what is wrong with me?"
She can never think of an answer.
i am socially akward
deal with self'harm and depression
am a teen mom with a huge prego belly (for now)
have too chubby of cheeks
too much pink in my skin
weird looking knees
am labled as a freak
can be very blunt
Hey nerdlover! I don't know you so I just wanted to say "hi"!!! I'm Max :D
tried to kill myself
about to go to college
allergic to my own dog
worry over everything
am on hormone balance because my insides never developed right and look like a roller coaster
am not catholic
still sleep with a night light on
want my bedroom door back
Everyone has their own problems, as do I. No one on this thread has to be upset over the words "I understand" because we really do. You'd be amazed...
I'm basically happy with myself, but I'm not normal
I have asthma.
Eczema (I literally hate this more than anything. It's embarrassing and annoying. I usually don't ever swim because that would mean putting on a swimsuit, and...no.).
Stupid knees/hips/IT band that I messed up during cross country.
I could be worse, though!
I also have trichtillomania. It's not as bad as it used to be, but I still can't seem to leave my hair alone.
I love people in my way, but I am very socially isolated.
The last two years of my life have been mostly taken up by my parents' divorce, and I have a lot of extreme ideas in my head as a result.
I have a long history of reacting to perceived danger in a way that causes more problems than it solves.
When I was ten, I was afraid to sleep.
My father once threatened to put me in a mental hospital because I don't doubt my mother's sanity.
Right now my life is entirely fixed on looking forward to the day I turn eighteen, because then I will be free to chose which side of my family to reside with.
I harbor intensely bitter feelings toward my stepmother because of the way she talks about my mother.
Hmm, that is a good question. Honestly, I don't really know. Not much is wrong with me I don't think. I've been diagnosed by a couple of shrink nut jobs, and they all seem to think I am damaged, emotionally guarded, an abused and drug addicted ex prost.itute. I just think I had a bad hand of cards from the beginning and made do with what I got, I'm a survivor. I've been diagnosed with Schizophrenia, Sociopathy and Zoanthropy, but it's not as bad as it sounds. I'm not crazy, that's just how my brain is wired. The real problem here is that I would have been much better off if I was born a million years ago where humans acted more like animals in instinct and moral. I am an animal in a human's body.
Adding some stuff.
I'm an undiagnosed schizophrenic, and i have violent waves of depression and I'm a cutter... and I need help...
Everyone has there own issues, lord knows I do. The important thing is that you learn to accept yourself. That sounds so strange coming from me when I know what a hypocrite I am for saying it. I have had a ED and its like a slow suicide. But you know what? That doesn't matter. What matters it that we are all different yet we are all the same. It really doesn't matter what others think, but I guess that's just my opinion anyway so it in itself doesn't matter. Hypocrite again... Long story short, we all have our own scars, some on our thighs some in our hearts. Those aren't scars of shame, they are prof we survived. Be proud of who you are, for you in the long run must please no one but yourself to find true happiness.
Well, here it goes:
-Serious low-self esteem issues
-I am very unsatisfied with my life
-I dont really have anyone to call a close friend
-My family and friends tell me I'm pretty all the time, but I've never been asked out by a boy.
Yeah that's about all I can think of off the top of my head, but yeah. I mean it could always be worse. I'm really hoping that things will change for the better once I'm older.
I don't trust people.
I am antisocial.
I have ADD.
I am cruel...to myself.
In ever feel good enough or worthy.
I feel like no one cares.
I think everyone eventually leaves, no matter how much they pretend to love you today.
And I hate myself for thinking all these things when I have a good life and my god tells me the opposite. I feel like thinking these things means I don't believe Him, and I want to.
I'm a control freak.
I hurt the ones I love.
And I hide all of this on the inside, and one day will probably break.
Well, let's see-
I have Social Anxiety.
I'm Tactile Defensive, which means I ffip out when people touch me out of reflex and touches can be downright uncomfortable, in a bug crawling over my skin kind of way. I also have a lot of trouble with sound and movement.
Used to have depression, but I've recovered so I guess I don't need to include this.
I can come off as a huge jerk sometimes even though I don't mean to.
I like puns.
I have trouble understanding jokes.
Scared to death of having no friends, which I'm actually on the verge of.
That's about the jist of it.
*sigh might as well
im not really sure if im a boy or a girl
i have rosacia
and im extreemly lonely
and im scared of death
but i agree with max I am happy with who I am and wouldn't want to be anybody else
Eh, officially nothing. Kinda the opposite in some ways, apparently my iq's above average and im a 'gifted' kid o.o
- The psychiatrist or whoever who conducted my test (and said I was above average in intelligence) said i was borderline for ADD. And that my score suffered because of it.
- I'm really weird. And I can easily come off as annoying.
- I think im almost lying when i say i love anyone, even my family o.O Not like they're bad, I just don't know if I actually love them. I dunno really what love is supossed to feel like i guess.
- Uh, I have a tendency to steal stuff that i don't need and end up throwing away before my parents find it anyways o.o
- Slightly overweight.
- I'm reaalllllly shy. Like, I went a year and a half in a new school with no friends cuz i didn't bother to talk to anybody.
- Also, I'm totally fine with having no friends, unlike a lot of people.
- Low self esteem
- Probably have somewhat of a borderline personality, meaning my emotions like to go whack -_-; Most of the time I'm happy and stuff, but sometimes the smallest and stupidest thing will anger me (today a girl who didn't know my name called me by "Glasses" and i wanted to punch her in the face), make me super embarassed (my earliest memory was when i was three and my mom told me to climb off a hospital bed, the only reason i remember that is because i felt so ashamed), or cause me to become suicidal (last quarter when i got a B in english, i literally cried in my bed and thought of ways i could kill myself).
- Eh, I think I'm kinda pe.dophillic.
- Oh, and also f*cked up in the head.
- Can't really call any of my friends close.
- Don't trust nobody. Like, I'm not kidding. There is not a single person I can name that I'd say I could completey trust with any secrets.
- Actually, I have an easier time admitting things to strangers without the whole face-to-face thing. That's the only reason why I can even admit any of these things.
- Scratch myself. Sorta.
- I'M ALLERGIC TO WORK. NOT KIDDING. If I push myself too hard and I get too tired, I'll either get really itching or start getting symptoms similar to a flu or cold.
- Oh, also allergic to, um, outside? I can't stay around to nature-y things for long without getting itchy.
- Also mildly allergic to artificial colouring.
- My friends say I'm derpy, which basically means awkward.
- Ay, besides the whol borderline thing, I"m probably also a bit schizotypal.
Eh.. that's it for now. I'm totally happy with who I am though =w=
O.O I didn't realize how much i typed there.
lol and even in that whole list, i forgot one of the most obvious! XD My eyesight sucks. I'm not even talking a normal amount of cr.appy. Like, my prescription's at 650-something, and I STILL can't see 20/20. My eyesight's 30/60 WITH MY GLASSES ON.
I seem to have an addictive personality. I can't leave drugs alone. This is my biggest problem since everything else stems from it.
I'm pretty bright, but I do painfully stupid things.
I've ruined my veins at this stage.
I'm a total introvert, which doesn't really bother me, but since it's not the norm it's probably recognized as not being a good thing.
A whole host of mental issues, but I can't tell how many of them are drug-induced or natural. Depression is the prevalent one, and I've tried to kill myself on 3 separate occasions.
I'm kicking all of that right now, though, and since I'm stone-cold sober for the first time in what feels like years, I'd love to talk to someone.
