Employment Advice

I moved to a small town in the Pacific Northwest and was having an extremely difficult time finding employment. After months of searching and applying I acquired a highly desirable position 5 miles from home. I was ecstatic!
They loved my work and I made several friends quickly. Of course I was resented by the locals who worked there for years who feel they should have been moved up into the position but I am ...

Mentally ill online?

So in a normal personal setting for the most part these days I’m not as bad. But then like characters come out on the internet and that’s incongruent to my actual life. I’ve had panic attacks thinking of some of the lunacy. But where does that come from? You know, what’s that?

How do you get going again?

My mental health has been fairly rubbish since forever, like most people it’s worse some times than others. Right now it is bad. The masking and adapting have exhausted me and I’ve just stopped.

How do you reply to "How are you?" when you're not okay?

You know, when it's just a casual/passing conversation and not a therapy session or deep conversation with a close friend or significant other.

Living in 2 worlds

Hello Psychforum,

I'm writing to you in hopes to find others who might share this experience or perhaps could help me with it. For about a decade and a half i have been experiencing some kind of cognitive divergence. Its like i'm living in 2 different worlds at once. I experience 2 different instances at most any given time. Over the years what started as minor divergences are starting to become more distinct.

I can't ...
