Avoiding exhaustion at all cost

Hi everyone,

My name’s Chris, I’m 21 years old. Ever since I was a child I had two dreams in my life that I wanted to make come true. The first was becoming a soldier in the Swiss Special Forces Command. Please note that military service in Switzerland is mandatory as we practice armed neutrality, and that I never felt the urge to hurt anyone (and probably will never have to). All I wanted was ...

I dont tknow whats wrong with me.

For a while now I noticed that I shy away from showers. Well I have a history of this since childhood which is odd. I still wash but just not in the shower. I know it sound really gross and I am not sure what to do. For some reason I feel dirty every time I come from a shower. I want to talk to my therapist but I'm embarrassed to mention it .

Please help me what is going on in my head?

Hello. My entire 18 years on this planet has been me just enduring life. I don't even know where to start with this. First off I don't even feel I deserve to feel this depressed and crazy considering there are people doing much worse, I have a feeling I am amplifying my problems and being irrational but that's a later point. Let me start off with my childhood. apparently I cried all the damn time ...

Like a movie... but my reality

So, my first post, I aren't sure whether this is in the right place due to my multitude of issues, where I even begin I don't know but I'll give it a bash, what I'm even looking for I don't know but I feel I need to talk and this seems the best option at this stage, my story is a very long one, every aspect of which not a single person knows about, all ...

What next after so much treatment


I'm 45 and suffered with anxiety for 20+ years. I originally thought it was depression, but a few years ago realised that anxiety was the root cause. I haven't had a formal diagnosis but it's been suggested that it's social anxiety and generalised anxiety. I also think there's an element of complex trauma as I suffered mental and emotional abuse in childhood with the real threat of physical abuse.

In my 20s I saw ...

need advice for family

I feel very disconnected from my family and everyone in general always have felt like this, it's not really a problem for me until I have to start showing affection or empathize with them, none of it is genuine and often I just end up being too harsh because I can't understand how they're feeling. It's starting to become obvious that it's more than a little awkwardness to them and it's scary, especially because I'm ...

How can I cope with religious trauma syndrome?

All my life I was good and after I became an atheist I started noticing an issue I was having. All my life I was good and always tried to be as virtuous as possible. Once I was free from the shackles of religion and its rules I acted immoral and unethical. I'm greedy, selfish, liar, etc.

I feel like Im rebelling against my religious upbringing. I feel like when Im good or do something ...

Finally gonna get a psychiatrist any tips?

For most my life I've been struggling with attachment issues, I've been to counselors but the "just talking about it" therapy has never worked for me and I overcame my depression on my own... But getting that out of the picture revealed something else, I wans't even suffering from depression, I was just lonely... I researched that for a while, "just connect with people" it said, and that's what I did.
it was great having ...

I'm not sure what this is, but it's bothering me.

So, there was an event a fair amount of months ago that left me.. different? At my school we went to a camp for three straight days for science class. The experience was very mentally draining for me but it happened more slowly. I was not able to sleep at all. I would stay in my sleeping bag staring at the cabin ceiling for the whole night. It was like this for the two nights ...
