    In remission from stage IV Lymphoma
    IBS, I also have Diverticula
    Tachycardia
    High blood pressure
    Lungs are Bad

    In terms of neurodiversity: GAD, depression, autism
    My anxiety effects my everyday life, to the point that I freeze and can't do anything. No medical professional seems to think there's anything wrong with this.
    Because my heart beats super fast, physical activity kills me.

    Physical? Nothing I can think of. I guess vitamin deficiencies.

    I don't feel comfortable with sharing neurodivergencies... I'm on the spectrum though.

    General Anxiety Disorder. I have a history of seemingly random panic attacks.

    It was at it's worst a few years ago, but right now I'm doing much better. I've been on a doctor prescription for a while.

    Physically, mainly I have arthritis. Mentally, I have Generalized Anxiety, ADHD and potentially autism or something else with similar symptoms (strict routines, social ineptness, sensory issues, etc.)

    My doctor, after a conversation today, thinks I may have Hashimoto's Disease based upon a number of tests I've been doing, and I'm starting a prescription to manage it, though it'll likely take some time before I start feeling better from it. I've got more tests to do to confirm it, but that's been my last month and dealing with stuff.

    Other than that I haven't really had a lot of things I've been formally diagnosed with, although I think I may have ADHD and probably depression, although that could be a result of Hashimoto's and how it affects my body.

    a lot! I take....11? (I'd have to check my medication sheet :P) prescribed medications/supplements daily. My conditions range from the mental (depression, autism) to the physical (I'm considered disabled). The one I like talking about the most, however, is that I don't have any stomach at all (no, not even a little!). I didn't know they were "optional" until I had to have mine removed....but it's not so bad once you get used to doing portion control on your own and understanding there are foods you can never eat again.

    I honestly did not know this was a thing, if you don't mind talking about it, what happened? I assume what and how you eat is indeed pretty strict.

    I ingested something as a suicide attempt (I won't say *what* because I'm paranoid about giving people ideas) that should have worked--it was one of those situations where it was "he'll never make it to the hospital" then "he'll never survive surgery" then "he'll never recover from surgery", but I somehow survived it all. By the time the surgeons got to me (edit: I should say by the time I got to the hospital as the surgeons were all waiting ready for me to arrive), my stomach was completely useless, and they had to recreate important body parts (like my esophagus) out of whatever they could manage. Yeah, it's pretty strict in both areas -- if I eat too much at once or eat the wrong foods, I get sick. If I do it too much (I'm careful though), there's a risk of doing permanent damage.

    I've had an as of yet undiagnosed illness that completely derailed my life back in 2015. It's a lot more under control than when I first got really sick, but it's not exactly fun to say the least. Currently testing is being done to see if it's actually cystic fibrosis, but I'm not holding out hope for answers. Pretty much all my symptoms line up with it though, so who knows? I've got a few other minor physical things too - asthma, allergies, terrible eyes etc but that's the main one.

    Mentally it's a long list. Autism, generalised anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, OCPD (which is not the same as OCD) and PTSD woo.

    I'm pretty open about my various physical and mental health struggles at this point. I don't overshare or anything I don't think, but it's not something that's a source of shame or embarrassment for me.
