Finally getting help

My parents found out tonight that I have been talking to people online, and they were furious. Basically, everything came out tonight in a really ugly fashion. I was in a discussion with my dad about mental illness, well, actually a heated debate.

He was saying all sorts of stuff, like how Christians can't be mentally ill, it's just a crutch, that OCD is not an illness, everybody has it, it's a sin to be ...

I DO have social anxiety...but confused about this...


I was diagnosed with social anxiety, and did not even really need to be diagnosed as I figured I had it. I tried medication but find that I'd rather deal with fighting it than the side effects of the medication.

However I have another issue that I always believed to be related to social anxiety and now I find is not. Even my past therapist and psychiatrist did not understand this:

I often feel ...

May I introduce myself

Insurance issues?

I posted this on the Munchausen syndrome but so far no responses - I am concerned about insurance issues now that I have been diagnosed with Munchausen syndrome. Has anyone had experience with this? I don't plan on hurting myself anymore, but I am worried that if something happens to me, insurance will balk.

I don't know what this is...

I get easily frustrated over little things, and when I do, it can get pretty immense.
When I hit frustration, the only way that works to relax me is to hit my leg(hard) or the floor(hard), causing a bruise on my leg or hand. I've tried different methods to relax, but none work. I was wondering if this could stem from anothe disorder or if this was one in and of itself.

Thank you.

What do you think this is...?

If any of you have any clue what my problem may be please leave feedback / comments...

I know I have slight social anxiety, but I can deal with that. The main problem I have is cognitive. Sometimes I feel like I cannot use my brain fully, if that makes any sense.

There are times where I am fully able to gather thoughts, use critical thinking and focus without problem, whether in speaking or doing ...

Catastrophe Theory

I woke up this morning feeling scared again... and thinking about
catastrophe theory.

Chris Zeeman set out catastrophe theory saying that it's when there's finally one last thing that upsets the balance, and then everything falls

It's sort of like, someone loses their job, and it's really hard, and they are just coping, when they get sick, so then it's so much harder, but when that leads to their home going into foreclosure, it's ...

Whats wrong with me?

As someone who is very suggestable I have decided to instead of guessing what catagory I belong in (I know they are just labels but I still need to be able to explain and yes label my problems) I am going to talk about some of the main things that have bothered me over my life and ask for other people to tell me what they think it sounds most like. This way I hope ...
