Hi Cassie, I'm Maddie. I also suffer from mental illnesses... Several.... Bipolar, anxiety, depression, ADD, OCD. As of now, that's it, but eh.

 

I cope with my problems with medications. Um, fortunately my Daddy is very understanding, seeing as he has friends with severe mental illnesses, so I guess he's just knows it's not anyone's fault that we behave the way we behave. If your caregiver doesn't understand that you have no control over it, they aren't deserving, or they need to be taught so they know you were born this way, you don't choose to think or behave or feel the way you do.

It can be quite difficult, but things will get easier as time goes by. You might want to think about talking to a doctor or looking at the natural remedies. It will be harder with help from one or both of these, but never mix herbal remedies with prescription medications because there are bad side effects.

I have manic depression. Finally stable enough to get off meds but I continuing counseling, a little prayer and taking time out of my day to simply center. Open communications is definitely key in my relationships. (poly) As long as there is really good communication and understanding then as Bunny says, your partner can only ask you to do your best.

 

If I'm having a really cloudy day, I get lots of hugs and kisses and taken out for fresh air. Support is always great.

 

Wish you the best!

Hi! I suffer from generalised anxiety disorder , health anxiety and panic disorder.

 

Similar to ddlgdoodles, I have done therapy - except mine lasted a few months before I decided a lot of what she was saying to me , could be done by myself at home, with practise and patience. I was very grateful to be given the opportunity to have CBT as its not so easily given these days, but I felt that she was just reading from a textbook, so to speak, and it was quite a journey to the counselling , and to be honest i felt my meds were doing more for me. I would probably feel differently (and even mayhaps still be having the therapy) if I had gotten a therapist who was a little more helpful.

 

So for the last 5 months I have been on citalopam once a day for anxiety and I have diazepam (only to be taken on the onset of a panic attack). I Want to come off the meds but at the same time I'm terrified to.

 

My anxiety started when I started having health issues which are still ongoing.

 

I find I forget my disorders even exsist when in little space. I guess I am one of the lucky ones in that respect. I have friends whose mental disorders hinder them from entering that state of mind, and I feel for them. It calms me instantly, better then any pill. I still find myself wishing I was my old self again, though.

 

I would suggest mindfulness, which works well for me, and meditation, which you can even use for a smooth transition into little headspace. -please accept a big hug from me!

Hi Cassie! (name twin)

 

I am a Borderline Personality, and I have recently been struggling with what I think is an anxiety disorder of some sort (blacking out, losing chunks of time, extreme panic attacks). Since I am newer to the lifestyle (in practice), it has been very difficult on me, because I am in little space more and more frequently lately, and I struggle with feeling like a selfish, bad girl who is overdramatic. Thankfully, He doesn't feel that way at all, and never fails to try His best to care for me, but it is still hard. Hopefully, I will be in therapy and possible medicated again soon, but in the meantime, I cope with lots of tea, hot (but not too hot) showers, lots of head-pets and smooches, snuggles, my stuffie, and just trying to let go and be silly whenever it is possible. It's not perfect by any means, but it helps me hang in there.

 

I wish you well, and if you ever want to chat, send me a request :D

hellows Cassie!!!! :D from what i have seen, there are a few of us around the community. so you are totally not alone! 

i suffer from clinical/major depression. which it carries along anxiety. (due to a traumatic experience, i also have nightmares often) . i also have trust issues. and ADD (now categorized as only ADHD). my Daddy also has depression, so we understand what each other is going though. usually what helps me, and this is not for everyone, but when i am having a panic attack, i give into it and just let it happen. if i feel like i want to do something horrible, i always call Daddy. and He always can calm me down, quite quickly. but if i am just having a bad day/week, usually cuddling up with stuffies, sucking my thumb, watching an anime online, and talking to Daddy always seems to help. i am always afraid Daddy is going to leave me, and that is where my trust issue comes in. He always reassures me that He will never leave. and that always helps! but i do trust Him fully, i have just been hurt/used too many times. to help with nightmares, Daddy and i sleep while still on the phone almost every night. and i do not have as many nightmares, and i sleep easier. we are not able to be together due to living in different states, so the phone is really our only form of comfort- also skype too. i am not currently able to be medicated, but when i was admitted in april, i was put on 10mg of brintellix to be upped to 20mg. i have also been in therapy my whole life, but the past while i have not been able to. so i really do have to deal with all of this alone. (well, with Daddys help!)

feel free to add me if you ever wanna talk!!! :)

OK, so I suffer from a laundry list of psychological problems: Bipolar 2 with major depression, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, nightmare disorder, adhd and mild ocd (I own a tooon of hand sanitizers and go through clorox wipes like crazy. 3 is my lucky number!)

I have generally gotten an accepting  response when discussing my problems. My little side is often pretty afraid of everything so...

I'm not currently on medication so everything is much more intense. I drink hot cocoa and cuddle with my stuffies and play on neopets. And when I'm feeling depressed I reach out to friends on here and they help me feel better!

Feel free to talk to me if you need someone to talk too!!

I have PTSD and MDD, Daddy helps me to remember my medicine because a large percentage of people with PTSD have memory issues. Daddy and I both have been hospitalized due to mental illness so he understands I need my therapist and accompanies me when I feel I need him. I have social anxiety, I don't like to do things alone. If I leave my house I feel I need Daddy's protection because my PTSD makes me fear everything. He helps me at night when I have nightmares/night terrors and unless he's feeling bad (like tonight) he holds me really close so he can tell if I'm sleep walking or having a violent night terror episode. He's also great at snapping me out of flashbacks. I've been little for a long time, those who I let know me always said I refused to grow up, but this is my first experience at being me. My therapist even believes this is therapeutic for me.

I have PTSD too, my daddy helps by letting me talk about what triggered an attack after we get through it together so I can better understand how the messed up part of my brain interprets things. It's hard most of the time but I always feel better after and he gains understanding of what affects me too. PTSD is sucks :( its like part of me is always in flight mode and I can't always quieten it..its resulted in agoraphobia (which I'm slowly overcoming) and a lot of random anxieties that don't feel connected but are when I think about it.

I was seeing a therapist but she didn't really help, she was all about self-discovery and shiz like figuring it out on your own.. If I could figure it out myself I wouldn't be seeking therapy xD

I am diagnosed with PTSD, borederline personality disorder, major depression, EDNOS, bipolar 1 (role out), premenstrual dysphoric disorder and general anxiety... I've had a long list of treatments (12 hospital stays in 7 and half years, 4 partial programs, 2 DAS stays -30 day over night placement but less than a hospital intesitiy wise-, 7 months in a residential treatment facility, and lots of trying to get the right combination of meds) I deal with it through therapy psych meds and birth control... I work really hard to know how I'm feeling and staying in touch with reality... I make sure I'm honest with Papa about thoughts and how I'm feeling. Take my meds how I'm supposed... Take breaks from D/s when Papa and I need too... We have rules about any drinking/smoking/drug use. I have to be 100% honest with him if I want to hurt myself so he knows what we shouldn't do or if playing is safe. D/s and ddlg has honestly helped me cope with my mental health stuff. It makes me feel needed and important and like I have more of a purpose and let's me fully trust somebody. It also has helped me with goal setting and knowing when I need to ask for help...

Cassie we sound like we have similar issues! I have BPD asks severe anxiety. I go to therapy, though I haven't told her that I'm a little. I tried meds but they made me feel bad so now I do natural remedies like aromatherapy and long Epsom salt baths

Hello Cassie! I'm Bethany, and I have Aspergers, and a whole host of anxieties. I originally started therapy to help with the anxieties, but that didn't work. It instead became therapy to help me along with my transition!

Hiya I'm Angel and I also happen to have mental illness issues. My anxiety is quite awful from where I've avoided care the last several years (and now I'm having to sort through all of it and am questioning if I have more than just Anxiety, but we'll see blegh.) It gives me pretty hardcore panic attacks which I've dubbed 'the shakes' because it makes my muscles in my chest, back, and shoulders flex to the point that I shake and last anywhere from 30mins to 2 hrs. It's got me on sick leave from work right now. Not to mention the Dysphoria that caused me to start my transition which is a journey and a headache in and of itself. 

 

I am open and honest with my fiance, my Daddy, and my amazing Therapist. Whenever things start piling up I talk, talk, talk to get the load off my chest. Then I try to practice my deep breathing exercises and find constructive ways to preoccupy myself. A yummy, healthy snack, soothing music, cute pictures or videos, cuddles with my fiance or laughing with Daddy, petting our adorable, fat kitty. There's a million ways I think that help and these are just a few of mine.

I have borderline personality and bipolar too

The combination is a bitch, you can keep bipolar under control with meds but bpd is a whole different thing

I hope you don't have the self destructive urges that come along with bpd, it can really mess people and those around them up,I have had those for a while

When I'm having the self destructive urges that come along with borderline personality disorder,like cutting,stealing, vandalising, I always distract myself with other things, not helpful I know but it does work.I call somebody, go out, read, meditate, anything to keep those thoughts away.Sometimes I do things that are repetitive like sewing, it has this weird calming affect.Might not be as comforting as the adrenaline rush you get when you do bad things but it's better.Find something that you love doing and do that when you're empty and want a rush. if all else fails take a nap.

I'm always here to talk if you want, I know how hard bipolar and bpd can be

I am Bekky and I am a little who has Bipolar. Daddy says it doesn't make me different, it makes me interesting. I take tablets for it and if I don;t it earns me extra spanks. I never get spanks for being moody...Daddy knows I'm not being moody intentionally. I do get spanks if I have negative self talk as I break a rule if I do that.

Hello my name is Cassie. I suffer from mental illness andni was wondering if there were other littles with the same problem. How do you deal and cope while still trying to be a good princess?

I've got a few mental illnesses. Anxiety, depression, bulimia. Daddy and I have rules that I need to tell him when my bad days/moments are, when things cross fro BDSM/DDlg into my recovery (we don't like that to happen), and to let him know when I need more of him to help my illnesses.

Hi, I'm Nickie and I have severe social anxiety. I'm on medication for it, but sometimes I have to practice my breathing exercises or meditate to calm myself down. I also have a playlist of pretty music I listen to when I'm panicking that really helps.

Hello. I also have some mental health issues. I have general anxiety and panic attacks, extreme fear of driving, and some social anxiety. I also have depression...and I haven't been diagnosed with this officially...but I believe I have some form of body dysmorphic disorder.

I suffer from anxiety and depression, the later of which I am on medication for. It certainly affects my life and my drive to do things, sometimes I either don't have the energy because of my depression or I physically can't do something because of the anxiety and those of you who have this know it's an awful combination. I also suspect I fall somewhere mildly on the autism spectrum as some of my behaviors and compulsions fit with that of autism or other spectrum disorders and there is no explanation as to why I have these tendencies.

I have anxiety, depression, BPD, and a weird type of bipolar disorder. I haven't told my bf yet about dd/lg so I can no attest to anything in that realm, but DBT I great for the BPD and I have my list of coping skills. exercise is one of them and so is eating healthy foods instead of the junk I usually eat which makes me feel even more depressed.

Hello! I'm Mischief and suffer mainly with anxiety and ptsd but there is quite a list. Other things would be depersonalization, depression, ED, and body dysmorphia. I have actually starting seeing a therapist again and am very excited to begin getting better! This is my first male therapist (I'm afraid of a lot of men) and he is very gentle, caring, and always says I'm being very brave. I feel like I can start recovering and I hope you and everyone else has luck too! Does any one else find that little space helps their mental illnesses?
