I'm unsure about what's going on with me, I need some input

I feel like I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder and also mental illness specific hypochondria. My manifestation of my anxiety was last April. My best friend (now queerplatonic partner) was upset about something and I was trying to help him but my phone was acting up. Then I started to panic. A few minutes later my phone was working and when I sent him messages he wasn't responding right away. Then I panicked even more, thinking ...

I think I'm having an identity crisis...

It's been roughly a week since I posted about how I felt like a loser for having a ninety-five IQ. I'm still feeling the same way as I did then.

Life just seems utterly pointless to me. I have no idea what to do with my life. I only ever wanted to be a psychologist. Now I have nothing to aim for. I don't who I am or what I want to do. I'm not ...

Housing Discrimination - Supported Housing on Long Island

Writing this partially to vent, and possibly meet others who are having the same problems. Lived here on Long Island (a suburb of NYC) for all 40 years of my life. Was born with brain & neurologic problems. My illness was worse when I was younger (couldn't even go out alone until 18), but at least then I had my family (mainly my Mom) who took care of me. Unfortunately my Mom passed away & ...

Never knew my father, now received photos, and I'm a mess!

Hi everyone, I'm new here! I don't know in which subforum to post this because I don't really understand what's going on, so maybe this needs to be moved.

I wonder whether I could get some insight here into what's happening to me, and how I should proceed?

This is the situation:
I'm in my 50s and have never known my dad. My mom left him before I was born and never saw him again, ...

I feel like a loser and that I'm destined to be a failure

As I've stated in a previous post; I have ADHD, dyslexia, two anxiety disorders and a depressive disorder. I also stated that I dislike my intelligence. I took an IQ test at the age of fifteen (I'm eighteen now) and I scored ninety-five. Although people call me smart and I despise it. It makes me feel like a fraud because I just simply repeat what I've read. Which is normally psychology.

I've never really had ...

Do I smell bad or is it schizophrenia

I have been diagnosed with schizophrenia because I feel like I smell bad in spite of showering. Any one I ask cannot smell anything but when I;m around strangers they react badly to me. In the food store they leave the line behind me and give me disgusted looks. Is it possible that I really do smell bad and have been misdiagnosed with schizophrenia? Does anyone else worry about how they smell?

Ive done nothing all day today and all I have to do is go and mop the bathroom floor and its making me have an anxiety attack.
Quitting my job probably isnt an option until I can find a part time one but its all I want. ...

Delusions of persecution

I wondered if anyone knows what would be a likely outcome in this situation. My ex with whom I have a child has systematically accused everyone of poisoning him. Getting him help was a succession of failures... He has now ran away to live in another country. Leaving his child with me. He has 2 family members in the country he has gone to. I am constantly wondering what the move will have done to ...
