How to break the cycle?

Firstly, my current problems are probably kind of trivial to other's, but I want to ask if anyone has experienced this and how they broke the cycle:

I have terrible memory (I don't know if this is because of the illness, or just me, or certain coping mechanisms I employed as a child...to cut a long story short a few devastating things in childhood that I think I literally blocked out of my memory yet ...

What is this? Please help.

I keep hearing this voice that borders the line between inside and outside of my head. It's like she's slowly moving out of my head...Every time I hear her, her voice gets stronger. She tells me people are out to get me, that people I see are murderers or pedophiles, that someone's watching me, that I'm going to die (or, more specifically "they" are going to kill me), etc. It isn't my own voice and ...

I'm so tired

Good day all.

I feel like the issues I am dealing with are so abundant that I am not normal. I cannot get my doctor to make the psychiatrist call me. She said she referred me but I don't believe she did. I feel like I identify so much with BPD. I stopped taking my Prozac. My therapist is moving. I can't stop bingeing, but I don't have the courage to throw up after. The ...

Wigged Out

Hello All,

I am new here and this is my first experience with a mental health forum. This will be a sort of long post as i want to offer some backstory.

The short version of my history is a basically troubled life from day one - I am now 59 years old. I grew up in a home with no physical abuse, but my dad was a WWII vet with pretty severe PTSD and ...

When is it a cop out?

There are some things I can't change. On a really dark day, no amount of positive thinking and smiling is going to pull me out of the funk. When I have racing thoughts, I can't just slow them down. Not a lot of gray area there.

Then there are urges/temptations...

I have not vandalized/defaced/destroyed anything in nearly 40 years. I sill have the urge. I mention it to other people sometimes, usually in jest (more ...

the strain in my head

Hi,
I was advised that I post my problems on this forum. if anyone could help, would be nice.

My problem is mainly with focus. i can't focus on just one this and I have this strain in my head when I does. Like I am thinking a lot of things spontaneously all the time.

Another problem I have noticed recently is the fact that I experienced things like I am watching them from a ...

Looking for opinions

I guess I will start by stating that my issues have existed for as far back as I can remember. I can recall having depressed thoughts as well as deviant thoughts since early childhood. I was placed in therapy and to see a psychiatrist at age 8 after teachers told my parents of their concern for my withdrawn behavior in school. This would occur nearly every year I was in school and I was referred ...

treated like an unreliable witness in discussions

This mostly venting.

I know I am not the only one this happens to. One reason I keep things private even with some close family and friends is that after they know, it is like I am no longer an equal if there is a disagreement about any past event or an inference I make from the way they speak or act.

Because I have decades of experience hiding things from people, lying does comes ...

Super stressed out feel like everything is crashing

Hi all. So, my whole life I have been pretty much a people pleaser type of person. I have a stable job, good relationship with friends and family, some hobbies, and engaged to a wonderful girl. I just turned 30 recently, and I started reflecting on my life.

My career is in a stable field but it is not what I am passionate in. I took the job for a good paycheck but I'd much ...
