Mental Illness Hypochondriasis

Hey. I'm new here, so sorry if I posted this in the wrong place or something.

Anyway, I think I might have hypochondriasis, but instead of physical illnesses, it's mental illnesses. First, around October 2016, I thought I might have anorexia/schizophrenia. That only lasted a weekish, and it wasn't that distressing. Then, I thought I had major depression. This has lasted until now, and it's kind of still going on. A month or two ago, ...

Living with Emotional Numbness

My reason for posting here is that I'm dealing with a problem which I can't really find on many psychotherapist websites in my area. It is quite a specific problem, and I would like to hear people's advice on what I should do. I'm a guy in his 20's; currently in college. A couple years ago, back in high school, I went through a very stressful period in my life, which lasted about 4-5 months. ...

(Content warning: mention of abuse, dissociation?)


I am not sure which category this would have been best posted under... Which is why I went with General, I hope it's okay. This is something that's extremely hard for me to talk about as I've been scared/ashamed of this pretty much throughout my childhood and onto early adulthood.

I don't have very many memories of my childhood, in particular of certain periods that I can only ...

My Steve9: School Education Tests Punishes Future Behaviours

A more complete title could have been: My Steve9: School Education Tests Punishes Human Motivation To Plan To Avoid Future Terrible Long Term Consequences.

This reading is about recognising downside consequences of starting a behaviour known to be avoided, to avoid drug and many avoidable behavioural addictions.

An intelligent idea is to plan ahead, yet I suggest, everyday school punishes human incentive to think further in the future than mere short term how humans feel ...

This is my story
I am a 36 year old male, self employed and single. I have had no history of physical or mental illness and am not under any kind of medication.

What should my first step be?

I need some advice. The people I am close to are starting to be bothered by some weird behaviors I've had for a long time. I guess I'll describe a bunch and then explain:
I have an extreme fear of being in a house/dorm/job alone. I become overcome with paranoia and weird suspicion that something is going to happen or somebody is going to hurt me. When I was a teenager my parents would leave ...

I think something is wrong

Hello, I'd like to start off this post by saying that I am a teenager, currently diagnosed with depression and Anxiety. I am on medication for depression.

For as long as I can remember, I've always had a certain view on people, well aware I was not like them.
I hate people who aren't mentally ill, or who have the ability to be happy and think lightly. People who I deem "shallow". I cannot stand ...

I don't understand what's going on with me -- help??

I was last hospitalized back in December and stayed there into February. I've been taking Lamictal and Wellbutrin and Buspar since then. I think that's it. I can't remember if I'm taking anything else. But I really did feel better for a while, but something's happened. The past two weeks have been variously intolerable and searingly great -- I'm either extremely productive, adhering rigorously to my routine, finishing everything on my to-do list, cleaning my ...

Thanks for clicking.

I am a 20 y/o abnormal psychology undergrad. I'm brand new to this site. I have been struggling for some time now, and have compiled quite the list of symptoms/things I deal with...I don't know what else to do. I am in therapy but feel like my therapist blames everything on my head trauma (6 yrs ago). I almost feel borderline, but being a psychology student makes me think I'm EVERYTHING. ...
