    Ahaha, true that, kathy. :]
    I suppose people just get "into" the subject since it's so appealing and interesting, but yeah... casual. I should keep that in mind. xD;;
    "It is when the feet weary and hope seems vain that the heartaches and the longings arise. Know, then, that for you is neither surfeit nor content. In your rocking chair, by your window dreaming, shall you long, alone. In your rocking chair, by your window, shall you dream such happiness as you may never feel."

    Cheers, that sums it up nicely.

    I wonder why we should negotiate neurological disorder at public,abnormal people may be divergent but when seeing them fortuitously,we should help them.

    As one of the sufferers, I say, "Bummer..."
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    Strange how page loads when I type

    After reading the first post, I wanted to mention that Neurological Disorder is a wide variety of issues, but others linked that already.

    I am not sure I have any other issue than the Back Pain. I am waiting for my results still. This back pain is serious, I can`t even sleep more than a few hours (like 3 hours continuously). And as Adolescent09 said, if mental breakdown is included, them i`m considered neurologically disordered?

    But, I am well aware of having psychiatric disorders. I was first prescribed pills at the age of 18. After visiting other doctors, I heard the same diagnosis: I was said to be an anxiety and depression patient, most likely of major depression. I do have violent behavior, so I try my best to derogate any discussion that might get me into my nerves. I do beat myself a lot so that I don`t hit others because I hurt my sisters when I was younger.. It`s funny to remember my sister held all way home by a guy, because she wasn`t able to see after having a swollen left cheek and a red-plus-violet eye, still sad.. I do love her a lot.

    What makes it worse, is that i`m not taking pills, I convince myself that I can do it without meds, but I end up torturing myself.

    People can be labeled as having a disorder for any type of behaviour / thinking that is considered by some to be 'abnormal'. I like diversity, it makes us interesting
