Well... as long as we're sharing...
Diagnosed with depression, anxiety, OCD. Currently on fluvoxamine, lithium, wellbutrin, lorazepam.

As a teen, with the help of a good therapist I saw for a while, I trained myself to mostly overcome some somewhat Asperger's-ish traits: great difficulty looking people in the eye while I was talking, talking at too much length and in wrong settings about subjects that fascinated me, and difficulty in dealing with social situations in which there were large numbers of people. I'm not perfect in all of those respects now, but much, much better than I was. However, I don't think I would describe myself as actually having Asperger's Syndrome, as I was never diagnosed with it, and the people I've known who have actually been diagnosed with it have had significantly more severe challenges than me in that direction.
