My mom needs mental help

My mom has a mental disorder, she is on disability (Social Security) right now. She refuses to see a doctor for her condition because she thinks she isn't crazy, and the last few days she has gotten worse. She sings some songs which make no sense and dances outside which is embarassing as the neighbors can see this. But, they probably already know she isn't right in the head. She screams and has mood swings. ...

Compulsive Lying?

The man I'm seeing lies to others, apparently for his own entertainment. His stories are all plausible but can some times be a little graphic and often involve his health.

For example, this weekend alone he's told me he was having surgery soon, was once shot by a girlfriend, and has chronic back pain. The only reason I know he's lying is that he tells me so after he gauges my reaction to his lies. ...

can you help--with corrections

my previous post had many typos...i am sorry. i was rushing and upset. here it is again.
My boyfriend of 20 years, who is in his 40s, first started to experience mental problems around his 40th birthday.

Stockholm Syndrome help

I am new to this site, therefore, not positive exactly which forum
this would best be directed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated with the following situation.

I believe my sister to fall into the Stockholm Syndrome category.
While she has just begun to seek professional help, I am wondering if there are meetings or groups (in various area of the country) that deal specifically with this disorder. (something similar to AA meetings but instead ...

Unethical Therapist?

I have been seeing the same therapist weekly for over a year. While it has been beneficial I feel as though I am ready to not go every week, I would like to go once a month or a couple of times a month. this is also a huge financial burden on me (I pay out of pocket, not through insurance, as he won't take my insurance...) When I communicated this to him he was ...

Rather confused...

OK, well, I don't even really know how to get out what I'm feeling. I mean... it's like every time I try to explain something, I contradict myself. The two truths can't really coincide, but hey, I'll give it a shot. Maybe some of you know what the heck is wrong with me.

I'm a 26 year old woman, with a great husband and two wonderful children. I'm disabled, so I don't have a career ...

Did you catch the news about playing computer games?

Just a day or two ago there was a news segment on how playing computer games increases mental ability.

I should have posted this immediately because I no longer remember it very clearly, except that apparently playing computer games can increase memory.

I'm sure that's true because I've had significant improvement as a result of playing FreeCell, Mah Jong, and Collapse... not to mention doing my web pages.

One of my problems, besides reduced memory, ...
