Social Anxiety Disorder Stamp by EryStamps Social Anxiety Disorder Stamp by EryStamps
It's strange how there isn't much stamps on deviantART for the supposed 3rd most common mental disorder, so I decided to make one. The silver ribbon is supposed to represent mental disorders (like anxiety disorders).

If you don't mind, could you explain some things to me about it? I've heard of selective mutism, but I don't know anyone suffering of it. I don't want to be intrusive, you don't have to talk about it if you feel uncomfortable.

Social anxiety disorder is kind of like social phobia.i get very nervous and scared in social situations like school which has a huge affect on me. And I have fear of judgement of others in school so this explains why I have selective mutism too,I think my voice sound funny and weird so I just stay quiet.

You don't need to explain the social anxiety disorder to me, I have been diagnosed with it myself. I was just wondering if the selective mutism appears to you as actual inability to talk or if it's voluntarily. Did I explain that correctly? ^^;

I have SAD, I was recently diagnosed by my doctor...It's really hard to some things, that would come easy to others. I really hate it.

i have SAD but i am actually DIAGNOSED by the doctor. i despise it when people self diagnose themselves. i actually have to take medicine. people, if the doctor diagnoses you, then use this. if they don't, please step off.

personally, i think being diagnosed by a doctor is much more reliable than self diagnose
in my opinion i believe that before someone should go around and say that they are diagnosed with something, they should get tested. yes, talking to someone in real life is very hard and going to the doctor costs money, although, there are many websites on the internet where you can talk to a professional.

please note, this is just my opinion, it doesn't mean it's nasty, it's just what i believe.

have you been to a psychiatrist before? my psychiatrist literally looks at a list of symptoms in the DSM-5 and using that list of symptoms, diagnoses me and others she sees. many many doctors use the DSM (obviously) and its just a list of symptoms, my friends have psychiatrists who have just handed them print outs of online tests to help diagnose them with certain, easy to diagnose disorders.

I want to know how you think people get tested for having stuff like anxiety? or bpd? or bipolar, like me? what kind of testing can you do that requires more than matching symptoms you have to lists with symptoms on them for certain illnesses?

Now don't get me wrong, diagnosing rare conditions such as DID are incredibly hard to diagnose, and my personal disorder Bipolar type 2 is very very hard and cannot be detected by a test (which i have tried just for shits and giggles or w/e), but diagnosing social anxiety or bpd or depression or Generalized Anxiety is so, so easy to do and anxiety is THE most common disorder in the U.S.

yes, i have, i currently have one right now. 
yes, i am aware of that, that is what i am talking about. they need to be tested.

i think that (please note this is my opinion, i don't want you to blow up on me) taking a quiz from your psychiatrist or your doctor, etc. is the best way to go. using that as proof, i guess. 
or by using a professional test on the internet, not like a random one. 
i do think someone can have social anxiety, self diagnose, and no further evidence. the reason why i left that comment was because i have had friends who would fake social anxiety to get attention, and i know that that was the case. they would go up and talk to random people perfectly, hug random people, be funny and loud with people they met 2 days ago, etc. 

yes, i agree. 100%
for example, Asperger. it is very rare and people that self diagnose probably don't have it. people with it are usually informed at a young age.

autism spectrum disorders have been proven to underdiagnosed, since they manifest differently in girls/women than in others

i am diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder with symptoms of social anxiety disorder. I can talk to random people of i connect with them in some way, and if i get to know someone i can also be loud with them after knowing them a few days. i am a loud person. it doesnt invalidate my diagnosis, or the fact i have to take a TON of buspar a day to get me through the day. you are not in anyone elses brain but your own, and it is not up to you to judge who is "correctly" mentally ill and who isn't.

getting my bipolar and anxiety diagnosis SAVED me, i thought i was broken and making shit up and going crazy and when i finally got diagnosed it made me feel valid and like i actually was not just making stuff up and looking for attention. People online strive to find themselves and if diagnosing themselves with what they think they have using the same websites as doctors do, than they are perfectly valid. diagnosis can change and mine certainly did, it took me until 17 to get diagnosed. people under 18 can't get personality disorders reliably diagnosed until they are older, actually same with a lot of things. Them self diagnosing on the internet doesn't hurt you at all, if you are REALLY miffed about people self diagnosing with anxiety i don't know what to say to you, honestly.

I have literally NEVER heard of people faking anxiety to get attention, but generalizing a whole group of people (self diagnosers) because of one individual, who was pretending to have social anxiety, is pretty scummy in my opinion

here, i don't think you understand what i'm trying to say honestly.
what i'm saying is that before you say you have SAD, take a professional quiz online or talk to a doctor or therapist. 
that's all i'm trying to say

ur comment was worded pretty aggressively "i have SAD but i am actually DIAGNOSED by the doctor. i despise it when people self diagnose themselves. i actually have to take medicine. people, if the doctor diagnoses you, then use this. if they don't, please step off. " i was attacking that part of what you were saying. it seems my text walls intimidate you which i understand, but im really emotionally invested in this stuff. you were generalizing and your original comment sounds much more mean than "take a professional quiz online" kind of thing, it sounds like you dont have something unless you talk to a doctor

oh! my apologizes!!! thanks for letting me know uwu

jesus christ this is just my opinion?? why are we getting into a fight about this? it's just how i feel. and i never said who is correctly mentally ill and who isn't? i was just saying that before someone says that they are mentally ill is for it to be proven first.

ah good!! i'm glad you're you're better ;w;
i never said it did jesus christ, i'm just saying that before people go around saying they have something, they should get tested first.

i never generalized them, i was using them as an example. eventually, the people who were faking SAD told me that they were, they explained everything to me. just because you haven't heard of something doesn't mean it's not true.

u know its ok to realize that your old comment was from november and ur view has changed since then, because what your opinion you just said (in the other reply) seems to be reasonable and basically my opinion too, it seems as if we have been talking thats what its evolved into.

You know there are some people who can't afford the doctors for diagnosing them?, you know there are people that if get diagnosed their situation can go worse? and btw SAD is actually pretty easy to recognize, specially if you're the person suffering it...

(Oh, and i'm diagnosed by a doctor, just in case or something...)

understandable.
but what i mainly meant for this is some people i know, they are not shy at all but they say that they have S.A.D.
which irritates me.
in fact, i know 3 people who do that.
that is what i meant

Mmm, well not all people with SAD show it as being shy, in fact some people with it learn to hide their anxiety thanks to how society put stigma and all of that

Oh, i think in that case it makes sense to doubt they have SAD, i mean it makes sense to know how to hide it... but go and do that? Mmm..., sorry if i misinterpretated something OTL

Source of what? the information about people knowing how to hide it?  Well, some days ago i started "talking" (Not really because it was just "yes" and "no") with other two people with SAD and one of them told me about that, if you want i can ask them more or something...

because not everyone has the money to go get diagnosed by a pro.
not everyone can get help because they're scared.

may be true in some countries, where I'm from it's free. I understand self diagnosing gives people some security, but I know many people who self diagnose with many things like SAD, depression and one person even self-diagnosed themselves with Schizophrenia. Like I said, I don't have much problem with people who self diagnose, but it's when they flaunt it, complain all the time, that's what annoys me, there are people who try and want to get better, but literally can't, then there's the people that won't even try and get help no matter how much they make out they hate being depressed ect.

I was petrified when I first told my doctor, in fact it took me a long while to fully get it out, but i try to encourage people to go because it helps a lot.

ah, yeah. i should've specified that i was okay with self-diagnosing for disorders like depression, anxiety, and maybe bi-polar, but things more severe need to be assessed by a doctor. 

of course i encourage getting help and seeking medical attention when the problem gets too bad.
