QUESTION: When people say that they have "personal difficulties", how bad can it be?

  1. It *could* be really bad. Crippling. Or not.
    If a person says that vague phrase, it could be to preserve privacy. For example, it's easier to say you have "personal difficulties" than admitting you have x, y, and z mental disorders.

  2. I can't go half a day without jerking my dick, and now its raw.

    What else would I call it?

  3. I have a friend with Borderline Personality Disorder, Psychosomatic Depression, Type 1 Bipolar, and hints of Schizophrenia. You wouldn't be able to tell that she takes tons of prescription medication and attends weekly therapy to deal with these mental disorders unless you got close enough to her to become privy to the information. I'd say that her personal life is pretty bad, but nothing compared to some poor suckers out there.

    2. There are people whose entire families have been killed in front of them, which often brings on PTSD among other things. There are homeless people, those with nobody to care for them, or people who are sick who can't afford the medicine they need. There are those whose lives have been irreparably damaged by war and violence.

      It's hard to compare, but in the words of my friend, "Life's been shitty, but at least I have people looking out for me."

    3. Yeah, support is really important to well being. Though in general, I think mental illness can be just as bad or worse than all those situations that can easily be imagined.

  6. From personal experience it can take over your life. University becomes quite distant priority in comparison to some personal difficulties.
