the second one.
You can diagnose yourself with the flu, that's different since it's a common, temporary thing.

theres a difference between thinking u might have something (which then u should follow up whenever u can see a professional) and self-dx'ing yourself n i feel like people either dont know the difference or dont care


but i've seen people self-dx with DID and i just

like i think i most likely have some form of AD(H)D but im not going to be like "ha guys im so adhd ecks dee" and flaunt it

mm i havent run into anyone on dA who self diagnoses personally

Like I had ADD/Attention deficient disorder (I've been diagnosed since I was legit like five.) 

And while I have not been diagnosed with osteoarthritis (yet, I'm going to see a doctor soon.) I am in strong belief I do seeing there's overwhelming evidence.
I defiantly think theres a big difference over Self-diagnosing mental to physical illnesses. 

I see so much people who self diagnose depression, and it hurts someone like me who actually has it (it's like a severe type I can't even get a job cause of it.)
Because everyone assumes its always self diagnosed.

I agree about how self-diagnosing physical illness is different than mental illness.

I think people self diagnose themselves with depression because they don't have a clue what it really is --- so it creates an environment where they think everyone who thinks they have it

The only reason I haven't been able to follow up with someone about possibly having ADHD is because of some insurance issues hh--

Also I hope the doctors visit goes well :>

Yea basically and it's annoying.
I haven't been able to see the doctor cause I'm without a car which sucks cause I can hardly walk by this point due to knee pain ^^" </3
