Oops, I accidently submitted to the Abuse/Trauma folder instead of the Anxiety one. Can someone move it for me or remove it from the group so I can resubmit?

Hi, ...
My name is Li.
I was diagnosed as schizoaffective bipolar type about two years ago. I refuse to take anti psychotics partly because I was medicated from age 5 until i reached 18. Also because I do not enjoy being subdued. I have accepted myself and supposed mental illness. I am 23 years old now and I am what one may consider to be a ragamuffin or waif. heh... My apparent diagnosis has caused many disturbances in my life. I am skeptical about the few people I allow in my personal life often accusing them of poisoning me or plotting against me. Negative energies will often hide in my food or random objects. I isolate, unable to go into vehicles most of the time. I am unable to hold down a job. I hear voices and see wispy "shadows" often. I come to realize that some are actually real otherworldly creatures while others are brought on by my own paranoia. I have one otherworldly creature in particular I see that I am fond of. He is my protector. He warns me.

Congrats on shring your story. I to refuse medicine do to it practically taking away all emotions (bad AND good). My stepfather is also a diagnosed Paranoid schizophrenic. Its a hard life but ive learned to have a dark sense of humor with him. He prefers it to be taken lightly. I am glad you are sound with yourself. =)

my story ( may be triggering)
i have had anorexia for 3 years.
it all started in year 6 when people called me fat and i took it to heart. i stopped eating and i started losing alot of weight.
about 10kg , my weight dropped right down to 43 kg and i had a bmi of 16 which was un healthy for my height. i started seing a dietician and i was almost put in hospital , because the hospital weight was 1kg of my weight.
i started to recover after a while and get back on track and i had to put on weight which i hated ! )= i have been stable for two years but still have always worried constantly about my weight. This year i started making myself sick almost every day( i still do it alot). i was almost put into hospital for that because my dietician was worried about my heart.
i started to stop eating again this year and anything i did eat i would throw up.
I have been doing 1 hour excersise on the bike each night. my weight has been stable and finally yesterday i found out that i had started losing weight again for the first time in ages ( it was sort of like a relapse). I'm still not stopping until im really skinny and look good again.
I f i lose more weight i may have to go to hospital for the first time, which is scary.
having an eating disorder for me is not a lifestyle choice, its an every day battle within myself.
I know how hard it is and how it can take an extreme toll on ur life and relationships. When I was at my worst the butterfly foundation sent me a card saying they hope i get better and lots of people have expertise in the area. I suggest if ur australian to go to their website: [link]
And im always here for anyone who needs advice about anything or just simply wants a chat, u can always send me a note and i will reply as soon as i can. i also struggle with self harm, depression and anxiety disorders and have attempted suicide b4, i know how hard it is.
stay strong, ( don't forget ur all beautiful) (=
