Hello everyone good morning, noon, or evening where you are. I wanted to make an intro post so hi this is me. I'm 28 years old and finishing college soon. I've been battling EDNOS for a while now and I have never been diagnosed with anything so that's my best guess. I have been dealing with these things since 2011 so unfortunately I haven't really found a way around it or through it but I'm trying my best to live a healthier life. I look forward to meeting new people with the same or similar experiences and different as well. I'd like to think of this as a safe space for myself. Anyways. You can call me Kat as I don't like to put my actual name anywhere. I'm Kat nice to meet all of you.

hi kat. congrats on college! that's huge, especially while navigating an  Ed.  my experience is an ED is something you learn to manage, not something you get through. glad you are trying to be healthy. i hope you can use this community to support that goal

Hi Kat! We are in the similar place in life so to speak.
I have finished my bachelor's degree and now going for master's in English. I'm 23, and dealing with this since 2012.
Never diagnosed just like you, so I don't know what exactly I should call it. EDNOS or just ED sticks well enough.

Thank you very much, I truly appreciate the support. Nice to meet you. Yes I’m almost finished with my bachelors degree, finally.

its good to know I’m not alone. Wow that’s amazing going for your master’s degree. My program is paralegal studies and my goal is to work in a law office someday or possibly even bigger things on the horizon.

I’m studying paralegal studies to become a paralegal or an office assistant honestly with all the knowledge it provides stepping stones for a bunch of different job opportunities. I’ll be 29 when I graduate 😅. I was never diagnosed so I think it’s safe to say I’ve got EDNOS.
