do you have personal experiences which have been touched on in this community? Well, I am bipolar and obsessive-compulsive. I also deal with severe anxiety and disassociative symptoms. I am pretty sure I qualify as a mad woman. I also write.

Awesome quote. I have personal experiences that I have yet to touch on in this community but I do have PTSD(post traumatic stress disorder), severe anxiety, and chronic depression. My brothers both have OCD so I'm very familiar with that and I know people with bipolar.
I write too. What do you write?
