mirrored conversation help please

Hello to all,

Hoping someone could help me with my problem, which has held my life ransom for 15 years already.

I have noticed in most of my social interactions that people mirror back what I have said earlier.

A person will talk to me using the specific words, phrases and expressions that I previously used in an encounter with that person.

It happens in such a way that it seems the conversation is new ...

I'm so Confused. (Don't know where to put this....) *TW*

Sidenote: This may be rambly, and go off topic at times. I'm tired and I have so many thoughts I need to get out there.

This may be triggering to some people. Possible triggers- Self harm, suicide mention, eating disorder mentions.

So, before I start, I'll let you know about my "disorders".
I have Depression, OCD, Anxiety, Social Anxiety, and I've had an eating disorder (not diagnosed).

Well, I'm basically here to get some ...

What should I do? *TRIGGER WARNING*


So I have this really weird problem that sprang up recently and I'm not sure what it is, how to fully express it, or what to really do about it.

So I was watching a horror movie called The Thing(Look it up if you really want or don't know it), and thought nothing of it. Just a relatively idolized film for it's shock value and suspense.

But then I started getting a little too ...

Wasn't sure where to post this...

So I need some advice on this thing that happened to me when I was sixteen. I wasn't sure whether to post here or in the anti-psych forum. But basically, I lost my face. I always had a very unusual appearance, and suddenly the bones in my face, as well as my hips, shrunk significantly. This happened just a few weeks after I'd started at a new school and had started hanging out with a ...

Articulating Murky Thoughts

Simple question I have here, really. For those of you with a type of disorganized, scattered thought process (I've ceased speculating on what particular disorder, imbalance, what have you causes me to think in such a visually and linguistically offbeat way): what are your best techniques for elucidating, 'normalizing' - by this I mean explaining to what you could call your 'average' person - those muddled, intricate thoughts or concepts that seem to make sense ...

A new dawn

This week, I went to the psychiatrist and new things happened:

1)Stopped taking Risperidone
Despite having had an improvement in psychotic symptoms, this medication has brought me many side effects like headache.

2)I'm going to start 3 different therapies
Since I stopped using the medications, doctors think it best that I start non-drug treatments. In another post I will talk more about which therapy.

3)Going to school again
In September, I left school because my ...

Not sure what is up with me.

I had been unofficially diagnosed with "a touch" (whatever that means) Asperger's syndrome back at the age of 8 due to a psychological evaluation triggered by me throwing grass at a teacher. I am currently 22 and had suffered severe anxiety attack and social anxiety from the ages of 7 to present. My Depression started to show up as early as 13 to my recollection. The depression used to be over silly things like getting ...

My Steve9 on Direct & Vocabulary Instruction Teaching Method

November 11, 2016. ABC television “7.30” PM weekday serious interviewing program showed North Queensland aboriginal leaders (funded by government) attempts to teach literacy skills to young aboriginal children, using what is said to be a USA teaching method called “Direct Instruction”. The “7.30” program story was more about financial misappropriation.

I provided three website attachment readings for reading at readers discretion.
