Do you ever feel like an SJW for having so many conditions?
I can't even remeber all my diagnosis and it always makes me feel bad about myself and muses me feel like I am taking away from real mentak illness.

I don't understand the link between Social Justice Warriors and having "so many" conditions. Unless you are attacking people online for their politically incorrect statements, you're not an SJW, conditions or not.

My mental conditions are assign of aggressive conservative expansion. I won't truly be satisfied until we organise a socialist revolution to overthrow the white male aristocratic patriarchy.

Honestly, the entire anti sjw movement is toxic. No, you’re not an sjw for having conditions. And yes, the whole "you’re not allowed to have problems" thing the internet propagates has made me feel ashamed.

If the term "social justice warrior" is being used in a pejorative sense, then no, of course not.

If it is being used in the sense of "someone who longs for a more just society and is willing to make sacrifices to help bring this about" then yes, to an extent. When you're Aspie, most current societies are going to force sacrifices upon you anyway, so why not put them to good use?

I have a lot of conditions, and I listed every damn one of them on my Social Security Disability application. I think they numbered eleven. It may have been overkill, as two or three of them would probably have sufficed, but I wanted to be sure I got awarded the SSDI on the first try and not have to go through an appeals process.

This has nothing to do with being a SJW or special snowflake. It's just that some of us are cursed with a lot of problems. Whenever I see a new doctor and they look at my chart, they say something like "well, you have a complex medical history" and I agree.

SJW is a term used to denigrate anyone who isn't a member of the majority/mainstream or anyone who believes that all human beings are entitled to respect.

I wouldn't worry about being called an SJW because the people who use the term are bad people.

You really don't have the full story.

I have alot of conditions too & mentioned em all for my SSDI review a while back even thou I had listed afew less when I 1st got SSI & then when I applied for SSDI after working enough to qualify for it. I quit seeing a psych around the time I got on SSDI so I was concerned they may not take my mental issues as seriously even thou I have talked to my GP about a lot of em. Social Security sent me to a psych last month & she thought they should still consider me disabled since my mental issues haven't improved that much overall.
Anyways... I certainly don't feel like a special snowflake. If anything I feel like I s#ck for having so many issues but I know it's not my fault & I just got screwed over my genetics & had very little help & resources available to me as a kid & teen so I don't feel too bad usually.
