I have a friend who has obsessive compulive disorder, autism, bipolar disorder, and post traumatic stress ddisorder. When she has a depressive episode, her OCD is horrible. Check has to check things all the time. She thinks she might be manic, but her OCD is bad, so she does not know if she is depressed, manic, or having a mixed episode. She wants to know if being manic can make OCD worse.

People just love to self diagnose don't they?

It's possible she has none of those things, and as much as I hate psychologists, she could probably stand to gain a lot from going to one.

I agree with you. DDO is not the place to go for medical / mental health advice.

My friend has been formally diagnosed by licensed doctors.

Sure she has, despite your post directly contradicting that, and no I won't directly point out the subtle hints, I don't have the energy for that. Tell your friend to seek professional help, and stop being so gullible

Okay, I'll point out a few hints that your friend is self diagnosed, but I won't pick out all twenty.

"She thinks she might be manic" "depressive episode"

Now how about you stop lying about your friend being self diagnosed and if she says she's not she's "lying". She needs professional help, not random diks on the Internet with uninformed opinions.

Your friend needs to seek medical attention from a mental health professional instead of having you intervene on her behalf with an anonymous internet public forum audience, where you'll likely only get layman opinions. I doubt she is clinically diagnosed with ALL those things you named, but it still sounds as if she would benefit from medication and or therapy.

Thank you. I will tell her to call her doctor.

That's the exact thing I said. Why the hell did he get a better response from you?

Well, to be fair, you did start off on the wrong foot and did not give her the same advice, at first.
If anyone should be upset, it is the guy who agreed with you, ws7025068 or whatever.
My work here is, finally, done.

I need to work on how I come across. I find myself saying the exact same thing as others on a routine basis and being ignored or attacked while they get listened to.

I under rate appearance too much. Maybe growing up poor and it working against me all the time is why.

I'm presuming that most of these disorders are a part of/result of PTSD; the mania and OCD would feed one another, I.E the OCD could cause mania in terms of constantly having to do things to assume control over a situation, and in turn the mania could trigger or worsen OCD because of not being able to relax or retain a calm mental state--and again, regain control.

Anyway, I hope she's developed some coping mechanisms (as medication alone isn't the answer here.)
