Tell me about your diversity!

Feel free to let me know about what makes you diverse! It can be religion, gender, personality, race, etc. I know that not every person of the same grouping for something is the same but I thought we could help each other be more informed. Not only am I curious but for the most part I want to make sure if I use these things in my stories I use them correctly

I have ADHD (ADD is also a part of ADHD) and it’s not what most people think (just being very hyperactive or never able to concentrate, it gets portrayed like this a lot, that’s sad…) females get underdiagnosed a lot as the symptoms are hard to see sometimes and a lot of adults suffer from it too. It can (not always) become very problematic when not diagnosed.

Well let’s keep this story short, great threat idea I’m gonna keep an eye on this!

If anyone ever wants to know more you are free to message me, and I would also like to hear your diversity, find it very interesting and we writers want to make our stories correct, the more we know, the better!

I have ADD and Bipolar II, Stereotypes are what anger me the most . Plenty assume you’re a maniac or shy away from you out of thinking you can’t control yourself. I deal with Bipolar Anger and it’s like going from 0-100 but if you train yourself and take care of yourself it gets easier to maintain.

It’s not only anger but depression, axniety, Insomnia and more and it’s difficult to deal with but I adore topics like this let me know how anyone else feels about Bipolar and if you have questions pleasee ask!

I’m so sorry! That sounds hard, especially dealing with stereotypes (even worse if they’re not right). I’m so glad to hear more and feel free to add more info if you want to! Thanks :heart:

Well, I’m an arab-berber but absolutely none knows about our existence, so I mostly identify as an African. However, due to my skin color, I get called names all the time and it actually drives me crazy. Can we all start studying a little bit more of geography? :woman_facepalming:t2:

I have a chronic illness that gave me what’s called an “invisible disability”. Long story short my body struggles to digest food and absorb nutrients, so I have to live off various medications and every now and then I have to stop eating completely and live off IV for some days. I have to fake my health because I’m not recognized as disable, if my boss will ever find out about this, he would most probably fire me.

So here are a few things that make me diverse: I’m a Christian, non-denominational (open to all denominations in the church, I just love everyone and want to be a light to others in this world. I’m a girl and I’m straight. And I’ve had depression since I was in 5th grade, but officially diagnosed by a doctor in 8th grade. I’m really good at making other people happy, but horrible at keeping myself happy. When I am truly happy, I’m usually outdoors or with my bestfriends or spending time with God. I’m white, but I am related to a Native American princess (ik that sounds like stretch, but my grandpa was 1/6th). And last fact about me, my eyes are hazel, so they change colors a lot! Like depending on my mood, weather, and when I go swimming my eyes turn blueish green! :kissing_smiling_eyes: :v:

Hope you enjoyed my Ted-Talk and learning more about me! I would love to hear more about you guys! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: This thread is great and needs more recognition! Btw y’all feel free to PM if you want to know more about me and what makes me diverse! I’m happy to tell you more on my faith or my struggles with depression.

I’m Japanese, English, and a little bit Chinese. Japanese is my first language, but I’m actually way better at English :woman_shrugging:t2::two_hearts:

I’m panromantic demisexual, female in both gender and sex.

I have… (oh god umm let’s see… :sweat_smile:) depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD and anorexia. My psychiatrist thinks I may have a psychotic disorder as well :roll_eyes: I also have several symptoms of BPD, I dissociate a lot, along with pseudohallucinations sometimes. I apparently also have true hallucinations, but what I’m ‘perceiving’ is real so… :woman_shrugging:t2:

My hair is black, but turns auburn and a deep red in the sunlight. It’s a really drastic colour change, people tend to be pretty shocked :joy:
