I am fairly new to this site but I have spent a lot of time reading the back posts and a few interesting consistencies between us all keep on striking me i.e cognitive behaviour, previous expereinces etc. (other than the fact that we are all in some way mentally ill - very much in want of a better expression).

I may be way off track here and maybe I'm stating the obvious but here goes:

We are all morbidly fascinated with our problems so much so that they appear to be as much a hobby as they are a burden - no offence intended as I am the worst for this.

We are all extremely intelligent, articulate, informed and, I would guess, fairly high achievers or gross under achievers (I myself have three degrees - BA, MSC, PhD - and work as an academic - thanks mainly due to my consistently manic attributes). I am consistently amazed by the quality and high level of writing which I see on this site - far more sophisticated in most than many of my MSc students.

Almost all of you (I dont include myself in this just yet) are more informed about our meds than most docs are.

An alarming number of us confess to have taken some kind of illegal drug in the past (Cannabis, LSD etc). The old causation correlation debate applies here though and because there appears to be a relationship it is not easy to say if one caused the other.

Despite all of our travailing, very few of us seem to have been "cured" or feel satisified by the meds we are taking.

All of these are just my immediate observations and I'd love to know if anybody with more experience of this site has any more. There might well be some illuminating information about our conditions (which also all seem to share some common characteristics)within the "bigger picture". What do you think? Feel free to call me a charlatan,

One thing I know for sure is I am extremely grateful for you all.
