does my mother have a mental illness?

hi all,

im not asking for you guys to diagnose my mom, but ive been really suspicious lately that she might have some form of mental illness, although im not really sure if it is a mental illness or if its just her personality. so some of the behaviors that my mom displays are:

1) victimizing herself and focusing on her traumas with complete disregard to other people's traumas (ex. can intentionally soften her voice ...

Not wanting to accept my psychiatrists diagnosis

This is a very emotional topic for me, so please be patient.

A few years back I was working full time. It wasn't my dream job, but it was mine. My safe place to go every day. I had food in my belly, and a roof over my head, all good things, right? I wasn't particularly passionate about my job there, but I was working there for almost 10 years.. I don't know how I ...

I don’t think GP’s should be able to diagnose depression

This may be a controversial opinion.
I would love to hear other thoughts on it.
It is my personal belief that general practitioners should NOT be allowed to diagnose depression.
I think this is a big problem.
Depression is a serious illness. Of course it ranges from mild to severe, but then why is a gp allowed to diagnose it?
In my opinion, depression should be treated as any other mental health condition and should ...

Thyroid problems and MI

I forgot to ask.... does anyone else have under active thyroid and mental health problems? I'd be interested to know what other conditions it can cause when your thyroid isn't working properly.

I was born with mine not working and had a multitude of mental and physical issues throughout life, some temporary (which improved when levels got stabilised) and some left permanent. Including hearing and vision problems, balance and co-ordination ...diagnosed as Ataxia but I ...

Does YOUR Mental Health affect your dog/pet?

I'm posting here because it's more a general question including any kind of mental health issue that affects mood or how you process information etc.

In my past I was in a better state mentally and the dog that lived with me 24hrs a day was a confident friendly dog, (though she was also possibly part lab so a sociable breed) When she got old as I knew I wouldn't cope without her I got ...

Please help

To say that I hate myself would be putting it lightly.

I have absurdly bad self esteem. It's not that I think low of myself, not accepting myself is the Core Of My Existance. I feel like I'm completely fundamentally wrong. I'm not exaggerating at all. :D I honestly can't think of one single thing about myself that people could like (on the inside or outside). ...

help me

When I’m alone I’m completely fine. I’m lucid. But when I attempt to communicate any extreme emotion to anyone (fear, panic, anger, rage, urge to cry) my throat chokes up and I feel pressure in my head, like a sucking or gripping pressure, as if my body is preventing the emotion from being expressed. This happens to the point where nothing can calm me and I’m almost catatonic. I feel a gripping sensation on my ...

Problems with Itemizing?

Hello, I'm new here. The first thing I'll say is that autism runs in my family. It is suspected that both of my grandmothers were born with it, one of my cousins was diagnosed with it (as well as my brother), and we are pretty sure that my dad and possibly his sister are on the autistic spectrum as well.

Over the last decade or so, it has been suspected that I may be on ...
