By MATT SHEAOUQ and DAVID M. FITZGERALD – Updated Mar. 22, 2019 10:20:13A “Sugar Babies” singer, who has struggled with depression, says she has just one message for her fellow patients: Don’t worry.
A “Crazy Sugar Baby” singer has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and is hoping to help other sufferers by helping them “find their own way.”
The singer, identified as Ciera, told The Associated Press that she suffers from a personality disorder known as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), which is characterized by recurrent bouts of compulsive thoughts and behaviors.
Ciera, who was born and raised in New York, is now 29.
She said she is struggling with anxiety and depression, but has learned to cope through the help of medication.
She’s in therapy, but the medication she is prescribed is not effective.
Cydney M. Lee, an expert in the treatment of OCD, said patients often find relief by taking a variety of medications, including lithium and paroxetine, or psilocybin, a hallucinogenic drug that was developed by Timothy Leary in the 1950s.
But she said the use of these drugs can cause serious side effects, including seizures, psychosis, suicidal thoughts, and even death.
“We can’t predict what the exact combination of these treatments will be, but I would say a lot of people do find relief,” Lee said.
“They may not necessarily find relief with medications, but they do find a relief in seeing someone who has this disorder who is looking at their life differently.”
Lee said it is important for people with OCD to know they do not have to take medication to have a successful recovery.
She said OCD symptoms are not limited to a specific illness, but can be triggered by a variety “including a combination of other mental illnesses, including personality disorders, and chronic illnesses like depression.”
While the term “crazy” is sometimes used to describe someone with OCD, it’s not uncommon to see a person who has it with a different name, said Lee.
People with OCD may have an underlying problem in their brain, such as a substance abuse problem, a chronic illness, or a family history of OCD.
Symptoms vary widely depending on the individual.
Crikey magazine interviewed Ciera about her journey to recovery and her thoughts on addiction.
Her life storyCiera is a self-described “crazy sugar baby” who has been struggling with OCD since she was a teenager.
Her disorder began as a chronic bout of OCD during her teenage years, and she said it has continued to plague her since then.
“I started off doing things that I would never do in my normal life, such a shopping spree and things like that,” she said.
Cierce said she would spend hours at a time on the Internet looking for information on the disorder.
She would also do things like read “Bible stories,” a reference to the Bible, to “study” a book or a website.
“You can just look at a book for hours on end, and I would just read it over and over again, until I just started to get tired of it,” she told the magazine.
Cierra said her depression became more severe and lasted several years.
She was hospitalized, but managed to avoid being admitted to a psychiatric hospital.
She continued to struggle with her disorder, but eventually gave up on trying to get help.
She became increasingly isolated, she said, and struggled with anxiety, anger, and panic attacks.
“The hardest thing for me was just trying to put things together and just try to deal with it,” Ciera said.
“There were times where I would look at myself in the mirror and think, ‘What am I going to do with myself?
What am I supposed to do?'”
She also struggled with her identity.
“When I was younger, I felt like I was kind of a strange, strange, weird person, because I was so obsessed with what I was wearing, with the way I dressed, with who I was talking to, with what was going on in my life,” she recalled.
“When I got older, I thought, ‘This is what I’m supposed to be like,'” she said with a laugh.
She began seeing a therapist in 2009.
The treatment was extremely effective, and Ciera was able to stop looking for help for about a year.
She was able, however, to find her way back to her normal life and found therapy through a group of people who all share similar experiences.
Circling back to that group, Ciera found an ally and began taking on other aspects of her life.
She now attends a community college.
She also said she still struggles with the anxiety associated with being in a group.
“My anxiety is pretty much in every single room in my house,” she explained.
“I am very aware of it, but
