OCD, Bipolar, Anxiety. What do have? What is correct drug?

I have a mental illness but doctors have not been able to diagnose or treat me correctly. I am going to tell you my short story with facts in case some doctor reads this and can give me hope or help me.

The mental illness became unbearable when I was director of internet at a company with eight magazines. It was the fourth year working there and I couldn’t take it anymore.

How it started? ...

Inability to connect with other men? Am I gay?

I am a 36 year old male and have always struggled connecting with other men. Needless to say I have no real friends.

Anyhow, I have been trying to get to the bottom of this for quite some time now and I think I am getting close. I grew up with females - My mum and 2 sisters. My dad was an abusive drunk who used to come and go out of our lives ...

Do I have Asperger's syndrome?

When I was a kid I noticed my family was respected by society and I thought I should act differently by being shy.This thought/belief dominated my whole life.I feel like I have no right to participate in life and also I feel like I have no responsibility to take care of my needs (I don't feel like I have a responsibility to work)
When I was in school I blocked all life activities and lived ...

Mumbling made up words?

I've been diagnosed with anxious-avoidant personality disorder, depression and aspergers. When I get very anxious I hallucinate both visual and tactile. I also go through phases of thinking someone is going to get me and that people are lying and plotting against me.

I'm currently an inpatient but before hospital I'd spend a lot of time sitting by myself doing nothing I would be so engrossed in the millions of thoughts going round my head ...

Is it adolescence?

I don't know if I'm writing in the right area... however, sorry for my bad english in advance, unfortunately it's not my native language.
I'm a teenager (older than 16 years old), and I often ask myself if the discomfort I'm living is just part of the adolescence or something that I got to solve.
I don't think I'll get any answers, but however, I'll give it a try; I will not go into details. ...

Severe Major Depression, self-hatred, failure

I don't know how to get out of this hole I'm in. I feel like because of all these issues I will never be the person I've always wanted to be. Personality wise; the kindness and all the other traits I have that have been masked because I'm so angry and sad on the inside. I feel like I'm just a mean, nasty, lazy person right now but I can't help it...
I have nothing ...

Mental Illness causing me to be marked as "suspicious"

I am a 21 year old with several mental illnesses. I developed the habit of creating and then taking down various social media sites repeatedly and then starting all over again. Not only is it annoying to people I am trying to connect with. But it also causes my FB accounts in particular to be banned almost immediately after signing up. My name and birthday must be flagged, as well as my face and scans ...

Trying to self-destruct

I am just basically trying to destroy my life, I think. I have alters, a wide range of mental health problems...toxic in relationships, abusive, attention seeking, narcissistic, manipulative.

I keep trying to pull my ex back to me, after a pretty catastrophic meltdown I had that destroyed our relationship. I don't know what my own intentions are anymore. The more I see past the denial I have over who I am, the more I feel ...

Critically Low

Haven't posted here in a very long time.

This morning I'm here because I'm so very low. I get low often, but now is beyond that. I feel as though the sadness is crushing me.

So many back stories as to why I'm feeling this way, but to be honest I don't have the mental/emotional wherewithal to even begin. I only have the capacity to say that I'm a sunken vessel with no emotional resources ...

My first assessment with a psychiatrist question

After numerous mental health assessments and being passed around I finally have an appointment for a psychiatric assessment.

For the first time I would like to be 100% honest to ensure I get the best possible treatment and help that I need.

There's just one thing stopping me...

The confidentiality rule.

Professionals always say everything is confidential unless myself or another person is in danger.

I'm scared what will happen if I tell them my ...
