Do you suffer from an affective disorder?? Mental illness is very though to deal with. Most people will just not understand what's going on and think that you're crazy. When you have a broken leg, then people will sympathize with you and help you. But when you have a mental illness, then people avoid you and make fun of you. I think that this poll might help some people to see that they're not alone. I encourage everybody to post their story. And remember: you are never alone. As for me: I have OCD, depression and an avoidant personality disorder.
