    Hmm, the NFJs I've known are much warmer, make a point of reaching out. They're just natural counselors, ministers. It's all about the connection- like they're more concerned about others' feelings than their own- helping others. The NFPs I know, on the other hand (including myself), don't do that so readily (or naturally), especially with people they don't know. INFPs, anyway (it seems), are much more inclined to be inner focused- 'how does this affect me?' vs 'how does this affect others?' Just my perspective, so take it with a grain of salt.

    As far as psychiatric advancements go, I think a lot has been done in all honesty- with pharmaceuticals, anyway. The big hurdle, my guess would be, is that it's all so subjective- psychiatrists/psychologists ask, and they are totally dependent on their observations and the patient's perspective, anecdotal evidence. And those of us who suffer from mental illness, often don't tell all, aren't quite sure what to say, don't necessarily have the best memory, can think there are problems when there aren't, can cover up things that are important, etc. There's a lot of, "well, let's try this and see if it works. Hmm, it doesn't? Well, guess you don't have that... maybe it's this?"

    Also, as anyone knows, it's really easy to convince yourself that you fit all of the diagnostic criteria for a particular mental illness when your systems aren't severe enough to warrant a diagnosis. And then there are multiple symptoms which are exhibited in multiple syndromes/diseases. It's complicated stuff.

    But I think that's the key- if your symptoms aren't screwing up your life, there is little reason for a diagnosis or to be treated. For example, I am a big-ass flake, I've been diagnosed with ADD, but my symptoms aren't that severe. I can rally to accomplish things, I did well in school, I can focus if I need to, etc. It's just personality/temperament more than anything. My bipolar on the other hand... led to major life fuck-ups and close to suicide. It's something that needs to be taken seriously.

    LOL! I wish I was window shopping, but I was daignosed back when I was 12 or so. I've given up on pinning down details of my adolescence; medication messed up the timeline in my head around then.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    What do you mean here? That there is absolutely no chance of anyone of the forum having an extra 21 chromosome? Mental and physical functioning isn't always damaged that much.

    It's good that we have medications that work. People who take them are not necessarily short-cutting anything. Also, sometimes there really isn't an issue to work out. Sometimes it's just brain chemistry that needs tweaking.
    Yeah, I think that the view of mental illnesses as purely chemical imbalance rather than there needing to be some personal issue needs to be taken seriously. This is about feeling sick, not about standard moodiness or odd behavior.

    Oh, and I am not a mental condition. I am Luna. I probably don't know all the conditions I have so it is hard to choose just one.

    I totally missed this post! I am beginning to think I will simply never know my type :P I am definitely one to sacrifice for others...and I have always had friends come to me for advice (or bring their friends to me) But I feel like I am quite concerned about how things affect me as well and that I can be selfish...

Hmm, it doesn't? Well, guess you don't have that... maybe it's this?"

    I was Dx as ADD in high school, then bipolar in my early 20's, now it's ADD/ADHD combo and mild OCD. (Which is finally right!) I think there is definitely some trial and error involved in making diagnoses...it's unfortunate though! The bipolar meds made me worse and i feel like I lost a couple of years of life. I was so sick from the meds...I'm glad that's all over!!

    Also, as anyone knows, it's really easy to convince yourself that you fit all of the diagnostic criteria for a particular mental illness when your systems aren't severe enough to warrant a diagnosis. And then there are multiple symptoms which are exhibited in multiple syndromes/diseases. It's complicated stuff.

    I agree!

    But I think that's the key- if your symptoms aren't screwing up your life, there is little reason for a diagnosis or to be treated.

    I'm glad your ADD doesn't cause you too many problems...especially since it's difficult to treat ADD and bipolar simultaneously! I treat my ADD/ADHD with an herbal supplement. I treat my OCD with cognitive behavioral therapy, affirmations, exercise and diet. It's a struggle! There were times I was seriously suicidal...it's something I hope I never experience again! I'm sorry you have experienced that. I wish no one would ever know what that feels like!
