    I have talked about my AAT deficiency before,

    but didn't really explain it completely. Mostly because I didn't understand completely. I was told my entire life that this wouldn't harm me, it would just make it easier for my liver or lungs to become sick, not to smoke cigarettes or drink. I was told this because doctors didn...

    I have alpha 1 anti-trypsin deficiency.

    It affects my liver and lungs. I can't smoke(cigarettes) or drink or have acetaminophen, but none of these are all that bad. I was told I could never do sports, but that was proven wrong. So really, I am just missing out on the party substances. I am totally ok with it ^.^

    I'm battling an eating disorder

    and it's just not going well. It's hard to believe I could ever live without ED. It's constantly there and I don't know how I could shake it off. It's gone too far, even my definition of succes gets set by ED.

    I had an eating disorder

    when I was younger, and the truth about these things is, they never really go away. And I think I'm having a relapse

    My Disorder

    I have Attention-deficit Disorder. If no one knows what that means is I can't concentrate on one thing. I have to do alot of stuff to keep myself busy so I don't get distracted anymore than I do already.

    I visit my psychiatrist,

    every now and then. I think it’s classy… sitting in a chair and talking about myself psychologically. He writes on his clipboard, taking notes that stand out from the conversations we’ve had. There are meaningful conclusions to all this confusion and questions that are...

    I'm bipolar. Sometimes I can control it.

    .. Sometimes I can't. It can get out of hand in just a matter of seconds and I can start having panic attacks where I shut down and don't talk to anyone for hours on end; just closing my eyes hoping that eventually it'll end.
