So, if anyone is suffering from a mental illness, I just want to let you know you are not alone. I also hope people who are affected can muster the courage to continue this thread, and feel free to post in this section. Don't let your insecurity impede you from posting here.

This leads to complications such as hoarding in which I do not want to throw away items that I own, even things like envelopes people have sent me. I fight this on a daily basis, and thankfully, I both know about and acknowledge my hoarding habits, which means unlike loads of people who refuse to acknowledge their hoarding, I notice and fight against it. It's oddly upsetting to get rid of something, even something small.
I also fear big changes in my life, and abandonment.

Before anyone judges a person with a mental illness they should know that it can happen to them.

Ya, it bothers me. The anxiety has helped any chances of meeting women. That of course, has slipped me into some state of depression. Not like I'm gloomy all the though. There are a lot of things I like to do, and I'm quite the happy person. Especially right now being offered a new, excellent job. Just a few times a day I'll wish I could meet a woman, and that will put me into a depression for an hour or so, until I read about some sweet new electronic. And I realize, there is much, much more out there in life than sex and I'm not going to dwell on it. If I never get laid, oh well; there are countless things that one will never do in a life time.
My paranoia is a little interesting too. It's part of my job to be paranoid, so it's kinda leaked into the personal life. That doesn't bother me though. However, if I start posting on here about paranoid conspiracy theories, then there is a problem haha.
But all in all, ya it can really suck and not the good kinda 'suck' that I would like to experience...
