Hi I'm Harleigh. I come from Chillicothe, Ohio but I live in Springfield, Ohio with my fiance. I am twenty-two years old, and I have been on gaia since I was fourteen(I joined January 13, 2005). I am a forum hopper =D
One of my favorite things to boast is that I bought my Kiki Kitty Plushie, Amarante, when she was only 36k. I was so proud of myself because that was the first item that I truly quested for haha.
Pic is in my sig. .. Or right here.
Ohayocon 2011 and 2012 was amazing! ♡DJ Helsing♡ was sexy (like usual).
I got my acheivement that I wanted for so long haha. :3
Okay I've decided to start on telling you guys about my mental conditions. I developed most of these April 2010, but some I didn't. Let's start. We'll start with schizophrenia.
Schizophrenia is a mental condition that develops in early adulthood. I developed it in April 2010, when I was 19 years old. They say with my schizophrenia its just I have different personalities, which is tied in with my Dissociative Personality Disorder, and I get to anger issues associated with it, which ties in with my Bipolar. I'm not sure if I should talk about my Personalities in this paragraph or the Dissociative Personality Disorder paragraph.. Dissociative Personality Disorder paragraph it is!!
Dissociative Personality Disorder is where you have different personalities inside your mind. I developed this April 2010 as well. Imagine this. You're just living your day, then all of a sudden, it goes black, and then you're in a totally different place. That's what its like. At first, it scared me, but I haven't gotten hurt, and now I trust my personalities, except Iisac, Kaleb or Margaret. Kaleb only comes out if I am getting bullied and I need to stand up for myself, if I get hit, then Iisac comes out and hits for me (I'm too nice to hit back), but if Kaleb gets pissed off enough, he'll take over me and he'll hit first. Then there's Raleigh, she's just a cute little girl that calls my fiance Daddy and calls me Mommy. She's the one that takes over me the most, so that's why I don't worry that much about my disorder. Then there's Margaret. She's quiet, and she's never taken over me before, so I don't know why she's there. There's Jill, who comes out when I'm with my bestie, Chase(Random Chinese Bikers), and she drinks coffee. She loves coffee. Some milk, some sugar. I got a new one here recently, her name is Jess. She comes out when I drive and she likes to speed. She's in love with one of my fiance's personalities, and I guess they're in a relationship. My life is complicated .I'll put up pictures and go into great details about them some other time. ^^
Bipolar/Manic Depression, simply put, I can be happy one second, and be pissed off the next. I suspect I've had this a lot longer than I've been diagnosed, but I was diagnosed May 2010. I have been a lot better lately with my bipolar, except when my fiance's bipolar kicks in and then I get pissy at him for being bipolar. We are strange...
Major Depression is what is most known out of the mental conditions I have, which I really don't need to explain. I developed depression when I miscarried April 2009. I'm still not completely over losing my son, and having everything else happen to me has made my depression worse. I am constantly thinking about killing myself ... I'm lucky to have the friends I do, otherwise I'd probably not be here. c:
RIP my baby boy; I miscarried April 5, 2009. I love you Alexander Eugene Byrum.
I'll never be over you, I've come to peace with your return to heaven, and I will never forget you, my little baby boy.
Well, this is all I'm writing for now. There's more to come, I'm sure.
HOLY SHITAKI MUSHROOMS HAPPY (late) BIRTHDAY!!! I would have said it sooner, but Gaia is slowly losing my interest in it.
And I know how you feel, I made a promise to myself to somehow get back in shape. But it all depends on if Gaia can make this event INTERESTING.
I haven't been on in forever but I just saw your post about your house. I'm truly very sorry and I absolutely cannot believe how something so awful could happen to such a lovely person. I really hope that things get better and you're back on your feet soon and very soon. Sending my love! Stay strong, dear.
