My name is Joshua. I am a 29 year old advanced sattelite communications technician. I was diagnosed in early 1992 with Dysthymia and avoidant personality disorder. I am not on meds so I have struggled with these dissorders for about 10 years now and I put this sight together for a number of reasons. Some for me and some for you.
First, I was hoping that it would be useful to others out there. I tried so hard to find the information related to my disorder - or should I say one of my two dissorders - and the net has it all jumbled around on many various sights. It takes forever to find it all. I figured if there was someone really on a downswing and they were looking for help then odds were they would be hard pressed to find anything usefull soon. It was my hope that by putting it all here then they would not have to look far.
Second, I was hoping that I would be able to use this as a sort of coping method. I plan to keep a journal for both myself and others on this sight. Feel free to E-mail me and I will put it all there for you. Trust me, it helps when others "hear" you. Please feel free to look around and I really hope that you find something usefull here.
Please remember that, I am not a medical health professional, and that any information contained on this sight is not intended to replace the sound advice and help that a professional can offer.
