You can’t just self diagnose and claim to be disabled! If you suspect you have a mental disability, go see an actual psychiatrist or some other trained medical professional, and get a real diagnosis and some real help, assuming you’re not suffering an acute case of hypochondriasis.

My gosh, this isn’t ableism, it’s genuine concern for people with actual mental health concerns, by someone with a minor diagnosed mental health issue.

 oh fucking please, stop acting like you know what is “real” help or what people need.  honestly, i’m in therapy right now, but no i’m not going to see a psychiatrist or a psychologist right now because 1) cant afford to and 2) dont want medication

dont act like this is about concern, if you really were ~concerned~ for me you’d respect my decision to not seek medical treatment.  ive been abused a lot by people in the psychiatric profession and i dont need to put myself in danger to validate myself for you.

To people who self diagnose,allow a simple statement. Get bent, oh look at me sometimes i sad and that makes me cry, i must be depressed, or i touch the door handle before opening a door, im ocd, seriously you twats, stop trying to be snowflakes, you hypochondriac shitdicks, and dont say im…

i agree with this. people seeking for attention take advantage of doctor’s time which could be used to treat people with the actual diseases. also money and medication. just stop, don’t say you have conditions just to sound interesting. you are interesting. just be yourself and love the people around you and they will love you back

u seem to misinterpret the definition of self-diagnosis, which is usually used by people who cannot see a doctor.  therefore, no doctor’s time is used up.  also no medication is used up, because again - by definition, they are not able to have access to prescription medication.  not that there’s some shortage of prescription medication to go around.  also, no money is used in self-diagnosing.  you are very wrong.

self diagnosers arent doing so to sound interesting.

friendly reminder that self diagnosis is NOT equivalent to professional diagnoses and it undermines the severity of conditions and true victim’s suffering uwu

friendly reminder that ur a piece of shit

actually buddy you are the piece of shit for claiming you have something when in reality you probably fucking dont- especially since you fuckers just do it to seem special or unique, you undermine the reality and pain of true victims and sufferers by saying you have something like anxiety because youre shy. you people are scum

i was physically and emotionally abused consistently by my parents from when i was 6 years old to when i was 21, all of my memories of my childhood are of abuse, ive been sexually assaulted by people who were supposed to help me, i’ve been abused by medical professionals.  but right, i know nothing about pain, and i’m clearly just totally ok and not traumatized.

AUTISM IS NOT A MENTAL ILLNESS.

Mental illnesses should not go undiagnosed or treated.
People who are autistic are not dangerous to themselves or others.
You can not ‘treat’ autism the same way you can treat mental illness.
Sure you can send us to therapies and give up treatments or try ‘cure’…

this is ableist, i say this as a mentally ill autistic person.  i ultimately get to decide whether i want treatment for my mental illnesses, and so do self-diagnosed mentally ill people.  mentally ill people should not be told they only have one option and thats professional treatment.  thats one option but its not something i choose.

No where in it did i say you HAVE to get treatment I said it can be helpful not every who is mentally ill needs treatmeant or wants it and I understand that. I tried to make that point in it but I was also trying to make the point that if you do think you have a mental illness you should see a doctor because dealing with that kind of stuff alone is hard. You shouldn’t self dx with mental illness these things are serious and I know people who are self dxing with them are probably being serious but still mental illness can be a very scary thing and you should get help.
You may get to decide but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get treatment. Treatmeant can me just going to therapy once a month or even once very 3 months. It is NOT ableist to say DON’T SELF DIAGNOSE WITH MENTAL ILLNESS. If you’re having hallucinations/delusions (and are awear of it) you don’t just sit around and do nothing. You go to a doctor. Why? Because it’s not a good sign. You know what I did when I started having hallucination? I told my therapist because I didn’t want to slip so far into unreality that I ended up hurting myself or worse other people. DO NOT SELF DIAGNOSE WITH MENTAL ILLNESS. Me saying that is not ableist.
now goodnight because it is 7am and I have yet to go to bed also kindly fuck off mental illness can have terrible effect on people’s lives. As someone who is mental ill you probably know that a lot of people with mental illness died young because they end up killing themselves and holy fuck if that isn’t serious shit. Mental illness should not go undiagnosed you can choose if you want to go to therapy or take meds but sitting around and doing nothing when you think you have a mental illness is not good. 

so I will say this one last time DON’T FUCKING SELF DIAGNOSE MENTAL ILLNESS SEE A DOCTOR HOLY FUCKING SHIT

-a mentally ill autistic with a bipolar mom and who knows someone with DID i know the effects mental illness have on people I have seen it first hand and experienced. I ‘ve watched mental illness go untreated and most of the time it is not good.

If you read even a minute bit on my blog you will understand why I cannot see a doctor.  I’m a professionally diagnosed bipolar person who has been diagnosed w/ a multitude of other shit.  I’m also unmedicated.  I see a therapist but they cannot diagnose, and also yeah it’s a pretty unhelpful experience so I dunno how long I’m gonna do it for.

It’s ultimately not your place to take your own decisions on how to treat your own mental illness, and expect other mentally ill people to live up to the same ones for their own mental illnesses.  You don’t know what they’re going through.  You don’t know their reasons for not seeking help.

My main problem with special snowflakes who ‘self diagnose’ psychosocial disorders and mental illnesses is that I am so scared that there might actually be something wrong with me that I am scared to go to a doctor about it

Hi.  I’m scared to go to a doctor too.  I’ve been sexually assaulted by a doctor, I’ve been abused and coerced by psychiatrists, I’ve been misdiagnosed many times.  I have 11 professional diagnoses for cognitive disorders and mental illnesses.  Self-diagnosis is the only tool left to me.  I’m not scared that there might be something “wrong” with me because I’ve been told by the mental health proession since I was 11 that there definitely was.  I’ve come to terms with that.  Our reasons for being scared of seeing doctors are different, but I’d like to think someone who is scared of seeing doctors could have a little compassion for someone else who is too.

the shittiest part about this shitty post is that youre dxing people w/ hypochondria, while telling people not to dx themselves

how the fuck are nightmares and shaking and body memories and flashbacks and having trouble trusting ppl and feeling like im not a person just me “getting ticked off at anyone going against my beliefs.”  id love 2 know

"How are you diagnosed bipolar from a young age? Such things are very very difficult to diagnose before you're 18 - I was diagnosed at 15 and that was because I had very strong symptoms. I have NEVER heard of a person diagnosed with bd as young as I was, much less before then."

I was dxed at 17 - by young, i just meant it was a long time ago / i consider my 17 yr old self young.
