Is it rare for someone to act out in violence in society?

When not fueled by any intoxicants (drugs/alcohol)? My psychiatrist told me this, he said that violence and murder against random people are extraordinarily rare (at least in my country). Only 25 people in Ireland die from homicides. That surprises me.

I wonder why? I know the law exists and murder can land you in prison but surely I don't think people in the heat of the moment are thinking about the law? Same thing with ...

Scared for my son. Dont know how to help.


My son is 12 years old and has been diagnosed with OCD. He's always been a perfectionist and anxious about doing everything "right", but it started spiraling out of control last summer. He got really into religion. I figured it was just a phase and when he came to terms with his beliefs he would relax. The next thing I knew, he was constantly saying prayers under his breath and doing little rituals that ...

Alternate reality creation stemming from anxiety??

I was diagnosed with anxiety over 2 years ago, for around the past 3 or 4 years I have been creating an alternate reality that only exists in my bedroom. I lost my dad almost 5 years ago to illness which is what my anxiety is related to and stems from. This alternate reality is filled with people I look up to, mainly youtubers I admire and wish I was friends with. They have changed ...

A little shaken

I’ve been being stalked and it’s getting old. I had a guy shoulder bump me, hover over me and quietly say “punk, you ain’t going anywhere while at work. Damn right I’m not and thanks for your money. I had another incident while taking a lunch where three guys took all the seats around me. I said nothing and when I was finished I stood up and they all stood up in unison, I had ...

ADD Diagnosis

I met with a new therapist at the end of last week and I apparently have pretty serious ADD. That on top of already having issues with dissociation/depersonalization, depression, OSDD, and anxiety makes things make a lot more sense...
But I also will most likely need to change/get new medication. And learn how to manage/cope with what feels like a growing mess.
How on earth do I manage all of this together?

Stressful Work Environment

Certain co-workers are currently making the environment at my workplace a very, very difficult place to be. From Thursday until now, weighty dissociation episode aside, I've been on a constant wave of being either incredibly angry or incredibly anxious. I've talked with my supervisor about some of the people who have been causing the issue and he plans on sitting them down to talk with them. I've apologized and owned messing up things or missing ...

Video games, anger, and an out-of-control ego.

My relationship with League of Legends borders on unhealthy. And it's all my fault.

I don't know why, but I have intense mental issues. On top of Asperger's Syndrome or some other sort of high-functioning autism that makes socializing nearly impossible, I cannot play games without getting emotionally unhinged. I do not like dying. I do not like losing. I do not like anything that is not exactly what I want to happen and how ...
