Well, its been months since i have been here. Its been longer than that since I have posted. I used to be so involved and then I lost my touch...so I started just reading posts..eventually it got to where I didnt even do that.
There are so many unfamiliar names on here so I will start with a brief overview. My names Christi. Im 19 now. I have depression, dysthymic disorder, dissociative disorder, anxiety/panic disorder, eating disorder, ADD, Fibromyalgia....I know theres something i am forgetting!
Since being here I have dealt with high school and graduating, starting college, going to college, my parents seperating and getting back together, my sexuality(which remains a problem, i currently identify as gay, struggling with transexuality), and many more things.
I have been on tons of meds and havent found the right mix. about 7 weeks ago I stopped taking all my meds. Right now I am only taking Klonopin as needed for anxiety. I see the pdoc Wednesday and I have decided to go back on meds because I go back to school in the fall and I can not function enough without to do well in school. I want them in my system before I start back, even though things are okay right now without them.
I also have some news. Last time I was here I had a pregnant friend...I raised her now 4 year old until he was 2. Well, she had a baby boy March 25, 2010. I keep him 95% of the time. He stays with me most of the time and to me he is "my kid". He is the greatest thing to have happened to me and I love him to death!
More news, I started dating my current girlfriend in Sept 2009. We have been together since and got engaged on Thanksgiving 2010. Things are going great, I am completely accepted by her entire family and we are all great friends. My immediate family knows and they like her. The rest of my family is another story. They will never accept me so I dont volunteer the info to them!
You're probably thinking how is that possible...yes same-sex marriage is illegal in Alabama where I live, but we dont have any plans to marry anytime soon. It was more of the committment to one another that made us want to get engaged!
Well, I always write long posts so I will cut it off here and wait to hear what is said. I will write more later about some things that are going on that I want some support on. Thanks!
