I have officially met the biggest ableist asshat on campus.

Let me preface by saying this: I don’t care if you disagree about Batman being ableist or not. Some people have brought up some good points defending the comics. This boy did not. This boy’s problem was supporting ableist caricatures and not taking a PWD’s account of stigma seriously. Like Batsy all you want. I don’t care. I really don’t. That is all.

I was talking to a girl in the 4M about comics, and ...

5 steps forward 4 1/2 back. Dragging myself through life...

Hi everyone, sorry for what will probably me a rather long post. I've found that periodically venting everything can be a cathartic exercise. I've posted here before a long time back and received some very nice replies, not sure anyone will remember me.

At any rate where do I start? I'm a 32 year old guy with a life long history of depression, anxiety, and avoidant behaviour. My parents have enabled me like you would ...

Does health insurance usually cover therapy or depression...

I finally might have health insurance --- Blue Cross Blue Shield.

It says mental health treatment is covered with a small co-pay.

What exactly do health insurance plans usually cover for "mental health treatment?"

Talk therapy? Meds from a primary care doctor only?

Do you usually have to have a referral from a primary care doctor to see a psychologist/whatever to see a psychologist/whatever?

I haven't been to a doctor in years, and have no ...

I score high on cooperation and also manipulation, I am non violent. I can dissociate out of anything and switch on and off with the help of drugs. My iq is 120ish although a bit autistic.

Getting a clue?

Hey all,

I've lost a pretty big portion of my life (time wise) to mental illness and as a result, it's stunted my growth and I've missed out on a lot of lessons and experiences. I feel very stupid and ashamed. You are just oblivious to anything else, depending on the severity of your mental illness. A part of you is always absent and you don't notice things going on around you so you don't ...

Quarter life crisis

Hi everyone, I think I'm having a quarterlife crisis and I can't work this last bit out. Any thoughts much appreciated. I'm tossing up between:

- Study in the city of my dreams (one year program) then travel afterwards in the European winter (I'm Aussie, so this is a big deal). This study is purely for interest, not to retrain, so it's not like I'm trying to escape a career I'm not interested in. And ...

Ever had these fantasies?

Well, I'm not really sure where else to put this, but I often find that when I met new and interesting people I wonder how they'd react if they met somebody else I know, like "what if x met y". I'm quite fascinated with the idea of a social network, being able to pick people seemingly at random and pool them into a larger circle. There's something about this that truly excites me and empowers ...

Too concerned what others think

I am overly concerned what others think about me to the point it's driving me crazy. The problem is I always expect them to think something negative, like I am ugly, weird, stupid etc... It's going to extremes like when I get to the bus and there are people I constantly have to think about what do they think of me? How do I look? Would they like me? Even though I know it's totally ...

Paranoid Personality Disorder?

It has been hell for me. I can't trust my girlfriend at all. She was starting to get my trust after 2 long months of constant worry then I found out she told a little lie to protect my feelings. I've completely reset and I have a gripping anxiety every time she is away from me or one of us is about to leave. If someone in a room is talking and I can't hear ...

How do you improve self-confidence?

I've always lacked self-confidence, and I've always had low self-esteem. Since I was kid. I'm improving now, and rapidly. My low self-confidence and low self-esteem have prevented me from being social, but I've finally started being social and getting to know more people and such. It's kinda a new experience to me. As a kid, I would just sit in class silently and not talk to anyone, even if they talked to me, even teachers, ...
