No one's ever diagnosed me with anything. I never saw any benefit really.

There isn't really. Not for adults if your functioning and coping pretty well with life.

I was only diagnosed at the insistence of my husband and MIL at the time. They kept saying "I wasn't normal" and figured I could be "fixed" with the right medication.  ::)

After close to 20 years of dealing with both of them I can say without a doubt now that they aren't too damn "normal" either.  :laugh:

I've never coped 'well'. Not in my book.


The kind of help I'd want is probably like a secretary in the old classic style.
Or a band's manager. Just someone to keep me doing the shit I need to.


Counselling doesn't help - I need someone to shake me by the ears and tell me what to do.
Of course, being inherently in rebellion and resisting anything that smacks of authority doesn't
help with this. I probably should have joined the military.

I tried joining the military (the army to be specific) when I was nearly 18. I failed the psych test. My mum said recently, "They certainly picked it."

I guess the lack of eye contact didn't help.
