Seeing faces of other people and feeling like they're yours?

Every time I interact with people, I see someone else's face and feel it's mine, and that this is what other people are reacting to. These faces can be people I know in real life and off TV. They dictate my mood and how I behave around people, and sometimes they can be really intense and make me anxious, or they can make me feel really motivated and energised. I rarely feel like I'm just ...

How would you feel? Are my feelings too much?

I cant work out if my mental health is causing me to feel something about this situation, or if most people would feel something.
It is not jealousy, its more of an abandonment feeling i suppose....

If you worked closely with another woman who you classed as your friend for a good few years. And she classed you as a friend too.
You got along brilliantly and always had a good laugh.

Another woman joins ...

Parted ways w/my therapist & slowly, feeling the pain...

I'm a gay woman, 30ish, that has recently come out in the past year. I still struggle w/internalized homophobia and the guilt and shame surrounding that.

I also have attachment issues; I vacillate between fearful avoidant and preoccupied anxious (the latter occurring only when I've allowed a deep connection/emotional tie to be established, something I fight off).

I've been seeing my female therapist for over a year now. It's taken a lot for me to ...

How to break the cycle?

Firstly, my current problems are probably kind of trivial to other's, but I want to ask if anyone has experienced this and how they broke the cycle:

I have terrible memory (I don't know if this is because of the illness, or just me, or certain coping mechanisms I employed as a child...to cut a long story short a few devastating things in childhood that I think I literally blocked out of my memory yet ...

What is this? Please help.

I keep hearing this voice that borders the line between inside and outside of my head. It's like she's slowly moving out of my head...Every time I hear her, her voice gets stronger. She tells me people are out to get me, that people I see are murderers or pedophiles, that someone's watching me, that I'm going to die (or, more specifically "they" are going to kill me), etc. It isn't my own voice and ...

I'm so tired

Good day all.

I feel like the issues I am dealing with are so abundant that I am not normal. I cannot get my doctor to make the psychiatrist call me. She said she referred me but I don't believe she did. I feel like I identify so much with BPD. I stopped taking my Prozac. My therapist is moving. I can't stop bingeing, but I don't have the courage to throw up after. The ...

Wigged Out

Hello All,

The short version of my history is a basically troubled life from day one - I am now 59 years old. I grew up in a home with no physical abuse, but my dad was a WWII vet with pretty severe PTSD and ...

When is it a cop out?

There are some things I can't change. On a really dark day, no amount of positive thinking and smiling is going to pull me out of the funk. When I have racing thoughts, I can't just slow them down. Not a lot of gray area there.

Then there are urges/temptations...

I have not vandalized/defaced/destroyed anything in nearly 40 years. I sill have the urge. I mention it to other people sometimes, usually in jest (more ...

the strain in my head

I was advised that I post my problems on this forum. if anyone could help, would be nice.

My problem is mainly with focus. i can't focus on just one this and I have this strain in my head when I does. Like I am thinking a lot of things spontaneously all the time.

Another problem I have noticed recently is the fact that I experienced things like I am watching them from a ...
