I'm typing this because I'm in a serious rut here. I've been going to quite a few psych docs for months now, since Nov. due to severe anxiety. I've had a life long history and extensive, debilitating battle with my anxiety disorder. It runs in my family and at age 7 I was diagnosed with Separation anxiety, Panic disorder in my teens, and Severe social phobia/Agoraphobia in my early 20's. I was finally prescribed Ativan ...

Anyone Know what disorder this could be?

So recently I realized that I rarely feel sympathy and occasionally feel empathy. I can force them, but they naturally don't occur that often. I have been criticized or laughed at by some for my ideas of "no giving to children in hospitals, theyre just sucking up resources", "I don't like veterans, they fought against their own species for a thing that only exists in concept", and "I don't care if a gay person is ...

Advice Desired


I have schizoaffective bipolar type disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, panic attacks, extra-pyramidal symptoms (EPS), and a verbal tic disorder. I am also having migraine headaches with aura and seizures, though my neurologist thinks they are likely pseudo-seizures.

I have had very unusual voices since the onset of psychosis years ago in that they speak through me at times as I am a medium channeling a spirit and then hold a conversation with me out ...

Possible mood disorder or just bad times

I hope someone can help me. Some days I feel totally hopeless. I don't know the root issue or how to deal.

I was recently given mood stabilizer. Anyway often I get so depressed that I long for death. I cry a lot and one day I didn't get off the couch except to use the restroom. These days are interspersed with times when I start to feel hopeful again, usually only for a short ...

Mental Illness vs. Terminal Individuality

One day, chatting casually with my Mom, I made a comment about being bipolar. We had never before discussed my diagnosis, so I was a little unsure how she would respond to the comment.

She took me by complete surprise saying, "Sweetie, you aren't bipolar. You suffer from Terminal Individuality in a world that believes if you don't think like them then you must be ill. I don't know if it is killing them but ...

What is knocking on my door?

First, let me start by saying I am sorry if this is the wrong place as I am not quite sure where to put questions like these

I am in need in identifying something though it may not even be an illness as while it isn't beneficial or positive it isn't harmful or negative either. It doesn't hinder me from living my life or making it harder, it is just there. I will try to ...
