Shyness itself would not be considered a form of mental illness; however, I have a more aggressive form of shyness called avoidant personality disorder, which precludes me from most social actions as well as derailing my chances at employment. In addition, it has fueled my depression very aggressively. I did mention in my post that my Mom had depression, my sister has it, and I'm pretty sure my Dad has it.
To answer your question I am a carpenter working towards my journeymen ticket. I have very few hobbies such as reading and sometimes going to the gym. I mainly go to movies by myself, but sometimes if I have the courage I will go to movies with friends.

I have read that Borderlines generally have a history of abuse (sexual or physical) and neglect as children, and this is not the case with my daughter either... So, again I'm at a loss as to why she's the way she is. Just like Bipolars, Borderlines have problems regulating their mood, except that Borderlines experience extreme mood shifts in the matter of hours... My daughter can display these mood changes in the matter of minutes, so one second I'm trying to comfort her for being sad; then she gets angry at me, starts screaming, and pushes me away; then she starts laughing at something she remembered.

I'll definitely be coming back later to have a say and check what others think.
Can't wait to get stuck into this...
