Sooo mixed up I don’t know where to go next

This is my story so far. I am 52 and at 13 my brother got knocked down and killed by a car on his way home from school at 10years old in 1979. Fast forward to now and even when I see the school I used to drop my son off, in my mind I think of my brothers name instantly instead of my sons.
I have been told that it is called transferance. I ...

Tips for asking for help at psych-ward?

I didn't really know where to put this, so mods you can just move it if you think it fits better somewhere else.

Lots of stuff has happened since I last did a proper post here.
I've "finally" been admitted to a psych-ward, and I still don't know how to feel about it. It's ok I guess.

I just wanted to ask if any of you have any tips for "reaching out". A big problem ...

I need to vent

When I was 15-16 years old I started having OCD symptoms. I used to imagine many uncomfortable sexual situations in my head, for example: me having sex with kids, animals, corpses, etc. And everytime I imagined these situations I felt something in my vagina.
I began to worry about this and I thought I was attracted to children, corpses, and animals because I always felt that thing in my vagina while I was having those ...

Constant hopelessness, everything feels like a pipedream

palpitatons and insomnia - anxiety or something else

I’m 35 and for the last year almost now I’ve had issues with middle of the night insomnia, as it’s called. So that is, I’m fine drifting off to sleep but then would wake up at random times in the early morning, anywhere between 1:30am to 3/4am with a standard bed time of around 11:30 – 12:30 (occasionally later than this). And when I wake up, I am wide awake and just cannot go back ...

She complains about things that happened 20,30,40 and 50 years ago. This is done on a daily basis. My mom lives in ...

Fed up of being me


Feeling under pressure and threatened

I changed job recently. It was a gruelling interview, and I couldn't seem to say the right thing. They wanted someone to deal with all sorts of billing. They even mentioned training me on the difficult billing and me meeting the companies who supply us with the work, as a bit of marketing - to show how efficient were are.

Despite having a terrible interview, I got the job. ...
