People keep confusing my anxiety for manipulation attempts?

Hello, I have Asperger's, Anxiety Disorder, and ADHD. I tend to unintentionally apologize for a lot of things, even things that I literally had no involvement with. Sometimes this is followed by me saying a lot of self deprecating, such as calling myself trash. When this happens my mind basically blocks all incoming information until it clears everything up.

For about a year now I have been hanging out in what is essentially a large ...

Dwelling on the Past, OCD.

Dwelling on the past rather than merely focusing on the future can be an undesirable behaviour. Children and teenagers being mentally stressed while attending school may have time to consider a friend as more than a mere acquaintance. Daydreaming of a particular person, being in the presents of that particular person may distract and or medicate mental stress from boring classroom repetitive tasks. Dependant relationships form that allow spare time daydreaming and visual out of ...

I'm a female psychopath but I accept it

I'm in my early thirties. don't know how to start this, since I'm not going to visit a doctor, as I don't want people who know me to find out what I am. I used to go to a psychiatrist but I lied about everything when he asked me questions: I don't feel comfortable with sharing my information with any doctor.

Since I was little I never had many friends, and most importantly, I didn't ...

Obsessive fear of becoming the worst person ever

I am 17, and I have anxiety. Major Anxiety. In fact, it runs in the family. My Great Grandfather had obsessive tendencies (although undiagnosed), my Grandmother had OCD (Diagnosed), and my mother is now exhibiting similar traits as my Grandmother. That leaves me to believe that my Anxiety stems from the wasteful gene pool that I come from. It may also be worth noting that my Father had Schizophrenia, although it was likely a misdiagnosis. ...

Should I Be Worried?

Firstly, I'm sorry if this isn't in the right forum! Every one I saw seemed too specified, as this is just anxious rambling and request for some vague advice.
Without further stalling...

I remember smiling a lot more often, laughing more often, feeling content a lot more often. Even I were sitting and doing nothing, I was more often than not peaceful. But for the last few years... not so much. It's hard to figure ...

Policy and Young People

My name is Susan and am an advocate in San Francisco. I am with a advocacy group that is trying to start a young adult group that would educate young adults about policy in some engaging way. I think young people should be able to affect policy and be able to become educated on topics such as medication, and health care.

If you were to join a group of young adults where you would learn ...

Living with 5 psychological disorders..

I read a lot about people living with 2 or 3 disorders and of course I'm thinking, Psh! That's all you got?!?! Why stop there? I seem to be picking these things up at a fast pace. I recently skimmed through a forum re: which disorder is most difficult to live with...bipolar was a popular response. I, on the other hand, would say hands down trichotillomania. Why? Because it's like taking the other 4 and ...

Dyspraxia + Narcissism = ...?

Is it possible to have a developmental and personality disorder? It doesn't seem too far fetched but how would they interact? For example, narcissism and dyspraxia - how could that manifest practically speaking?

Thoughts always circulate through my brain, there's never a moment I'm not thinking about something. It's never one thing, it's several things at a time where I can't seem to grab onto any one thought. It's not a manic type thing, i'm not elated or euphoric, it's just a bunch of thoughts going in and out of my head. Sometimes the circulating thoughts are just one line of words, say, a verse from a song. ...
