Dont be shy guests

I have been a member on this forum for a while now but only just recently been posting due to me being off work and having some time to sort my mental health out,
What I have noticed is there is always many guests/lurkers viewing posts on the forum yet never come on the boards to post anything,
While I acknowledge there will be mental health professional's researching this forum for work purposes and other ...

Am I Schizotypal?

So I seem to be going back and forth with this. I don't know if I have SPD, OCD or StPD. Probably all of them.

I'm 17 and I only came across all of this PD's fairly recently, but I seem to have always displayed traits of OCD and intrusive thoughts as a child. I daydream a lot, I talk with myself often, and I excessively introspect about things that I do or think. I've ...

I don't know where else to put this, so I'm putting it here.

I'm 30 years old, and I live with father in a 2 bedroom basement suite.

Currently I'm unemployed, and financially dependent on him.

Other than living on my own for a few years, I've basically lived with my father my entire adult life.

I've never been in a relationship.

How does one come to find oneself in such a state?

I have ...

Hey all. I have multiple concerns, but most of them are for a therapist. Tonight, I'm just wondering what one of them may fit under. Thissss... 'corrupted' 'atmosphere' feeling starting coming a while after I experienced extreme guilt recalling a childhood memory in which I experimented with another kid my age. I held it in, and then began feeling guilty about every little thing until the point I couldn't do anything. Basically, the general 'feeling' ...

I have decided to stop living

My reason for posting this is not to get any help, I just want to know if anyone can relate to my situation since I imagine I'm pretty alone in this.
A while ago I decided to stop living. I'm still going to physically live but since I won't kill myself (no need to ask me why) I'm just going to live as if I'm "dead". Basically I'm 18, almost 19, and I'm not in ...

Hanging on

Today is a horrible day. I've been betrayed horribly by someone I trust. They told ALL of my secrets to family members as well as their friends, whom that person knows I hate. Why would all of my secrets be told so flippantly like that?! There are some things about me that I don't feel my family needs to know. And especially people I hate. Why the heck would someone think it was ok to ...

Why Do I have so many problems with this?

Why, why oh why in God's green world do I have so many problems with myself; with anxiety, phobias/ fears and just neuroticism in general. I never wanted to be this way! I seriously never did. I always thought of myself as a very level-headed individual, and prided myself on that.
It's just when I hit puberty everything went to hell. My thoughts went out of control. I couldn't control them - they controlled me. ...

I hate when adults tell you that 21 is suppose to be the best year of your life. The best age. I am in the last 8 hours before I have to submit my portfolio for 3rd year at art school and I almost don't want to do it. I love what I do. I have even been labeled "up and coming" I don't have any lack of commissions or money issues. Most people would ...

Psychological reasons for crying in sleep?

A few months ago, I had found out that I was crying in my sleep. When I would wake up and look in the mirror, I would find traces of tears running from my eyes down to the side of my face. For me, it kind of feels like talking in your sleep or doing things in your sleep, but I have a feeling that my crying in my sleep is being caused by my ...

My life is going down the pooper (like my dreams)

Tiny bit of background, I'm an 18 year old girl living in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, that isn't as fun as it sounds. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder my freshman year of high school. Also not as fun as it sounds.

My problem is, every year has been getting worse for me. It's gotten to the point where I've lost interest in everything I once loved to death. For example, writing has been my biggest ...
