    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 Have Dermatillomania

    It's an obsessive-compulsive disorder and it's simply put - skin picking. And everyone picks their skin one time or another. So I didn't even know I had a disorder until last night when I realized I spent 2h plucking hair (not scalp hair) with tweezers. And I thought I have a bad...

    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.
