No, this isn't a community to hail the release of Mandy Moore's new movie, How to Deal, although I am looking forward to that, as well.

There are many of us out there who are suffering from or are suspecting they suffer from psychological disorders, such as Borderline (BPD), Manic Depression, Bipolar Disorder, ADD/ADHD, Social Anxiety, Autism, and others. One of the hardest things to deal with are the people we care about, whether they be family or romantic partners. Sometimes they just don't understand what we go through.

This is a place to vent our frustrations, seek advice, or just explore in how to deal with those we love. Maybe we just need to know that even though there are those around us that don't understand, that there others who know exactly what we're going through, and that's what this place is for. Ask for advice, share stories, seek support..

No one's problems or issues are too small here. Just because a lot of the disorders I mentioned may seem big and menacing to some.That doesn't mean those with social anxiety or depression issues don't need people for support. Your issues are just as important as everyone else's. Everyone is welcome here.

The Rules:
• I will not tolerate any flaming, taunting, or harrassment of any member of this community. It will result in being banned from here.
• Some may choose to make their posts friends-only, and out of respect to them, please respect their privacy.
• No spamming, trolling, or asking for invitation codes for LiveJournal.
• Please try to remain on topic. The topic is broad in nature, but we don't want to know what you thought of the new Britney CD. (I probably liked it, but that's totally besides the point.)

I, walkingblues, am the moderator of this community. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact to me via e-mail or IM.

Note: If you are on the other side of the equation, and want support in dealing with those you love who have issues themselves, check out standingbythem. It's a wonderful place run by my good friend, drewberry4.
