    Depends on what you consider to be "psychologically healthy".

    i want to say no but then i think of all the fuck-uppery going on in certain other people's lives and it all makes me look relatively functional by comparison.

    lets say i think i'm not beyond fixing.

    this is still pretty broad... but it helps narrow it down, at least a little bit.
    Yes, it's broad. Within categories of pd's, there can be functioning vs. non-functioning people.... and sometimes actually-defined categories for such, from a psychologically defined standpoint.

    Nowadays I'm about inbetween. I do have some disorders still, but I've improved greatly. Most of it comes from the stability R provides for me. I figure I will likely be off disability within a couple of years from now, but if I lost R, it wouldn't take long before I'd completely break down again. Even w the stability he provides, I still wouldn't be able to hold a full time job without breaking down again, though. Hence why I've been trying to learn some skills that can at least feed me or keep me alive one day at a time, heh.

    If I was on my own, I'd probably be homeless again, maybe even a bag lady talking to herself.

    To be human and not have some kind of mental "issue", well, you're really not much of a human...let's be honest. I score high on like all the mental disorders. Fun times.

    I don't, looks like I am not human. Not from this world. Definitely crazy.

    Yeah right. Most schizophrenics are unable to function properly in normal society and it is not, I repeat, not a disorder of any kind...

    Probably more so than I have any right to be, but I refrain from answering these type related polls.

    On a yes no basis I voted yes because I don't seem to have major disturbances that make my life problematic. I am however also not 100% normal / sane.

    Healthy, as in a perfect psychological specimen? No, of course not. I'm about as well off as anyone else though.

    Simple, schizophrenia isn't a psychotic disorder marked by severely impaired thinking, emotions, and behaviors. So it can't interfere with normal functioning and isn't a disorder. You're correct.

    to be honest, no not really.

    my brain is just very negative. hard for me to lighten up when im around people. i smell their hatred and sociopathy and bigotry too easily. i want my mommy. get me away from everybody. I DON'T WANNA GO TO LOWE'S AND BE A NORMAL MIDDLE CLASS MAN. AHHHHHH.

    oprah tells me i need to think more positively but but but i don't know how to do that yet. anyways i was doing kinda of one on one life coaching with a person and she really helps u reframe negative thinking patterns and also contradictory mental statements that keep you stuck. the sort of yes and no thing the brain does... and how to make that more yes or something.

    no, I don't think so.

    I have a functional life but I'm too scared and doubtful on a everyday basis to consider myself healthy.

    For the first time in about nine years, I would say "yes." I have my ghosts that still haunt me, but I have some sweet digs for them to retreat to now.

    I used to be very psychologically unhealthy. Those were by far the worst years of my life. Though, I can only say that period has made me mentally tougher.

    Now I would probably say that I am mentally healthy, for the most part. I'm genuinely happy now, even on bad days. I recently went through a rough break up; I'll be honest and say that I'm pretty ok and content with how things ended (worst part was ripping off that psychological band-aid of attachment). I'm happy being on my own and don't need or even want a relationship. I'm not perfect by any means and there are still lots of things I need to work on, but I'm doing pretty well, overall. I've reached a point where I feel like that hole is gone.

    Working out has helped me out so much, both mentally and physically. I'm beginning to learn that the average person needs to break a full sweat at least once a day. It's honestly changed my life, dramatically.

    As a phd in armchair psychology I can, without a doubt, diagnose your mental dysfunction. However, I'm having trouble on my own and would require the assistance of my dear colleague @blackburry. Together, I'm sure we can not only find a problem where there wasn't one, but solve it as well. In the mean time, I will prescribe an antidepressant to be proactive in dealing with your possible symptoms. And I promise you, we will get to the bottom of this.

    Psychological health is very culture dependent. I like to think that I was born into the wrong world. People find me sane, reasonable but maybe somewhat emotionally unstable.

    I don't think very many people on this board are psychologically healthy. I'm certainly not -- at least I don't think I am. I'm fairly normal by all outward appearances, but that's hardly a telltale sign of someone who is psychologically healthy. I suppose the poll begs the question, though, of what is a state of psychological health?

    tbh people who have thought they were mentally healthy while judging other people as not were the true villains in the world, so let's hear it for being crazy. im of the belief that the patients are more sane than the therapists type of deal.
