Getting in touch with an old therapist

I did therapy about five or six years ago and I felt worse ever since

The therapist was the most confident guy I’ve ever met and was so confident I’d get well

I did crack up and go a bit crazy and he ignored me after that

He was happy to take my money but do I call and ask why I felt worse ever since or do I just leave it?

Was I emotionally neglected?

I always had physiological necessities (food, water, temperature regulation, etc.) met and my mother wasn't purposely ignoring me, we just never talked much. I have autism and have problems reaching out for help or initiating interactions, at some point when I was still fairly young we had drifted apart to the point that we only talked when circumstances caused it, never just for the sake of talking.

On top of that I barely had any ...

I Recently Applied For Disability

I recently applied for disability. I'm emotionally unstable, have trichotillomania, depression, anxiety, and OCD. I'm currently waiting to be approved after filling out all of the paper work and seeing a doctor they wanted me to see to confirm whether I have these problems or not. In my 20's I thought I'd maybe grow out of these problems but now that I'm in my 30's and I reflect back on my life I have begun ...

Severe constant daily fatigue and intrusive thoughts?

Is anyone here living with severe constant daily fatigue? It's like my body is on hibernation mode all the time and is merely just keeping itself alive. I never get my natural energy levels back; it's like I only get energy from improving my fitness from the "workouts" my intrusive thoughts give me. Does anyone have intrusive thoughts as well? How do you feel about your condition? For me it's a daily nightmare that severely ...

Oh where to begin. It's been such a long journey.

I'm having serious moral issues with taking my medication. I know the general consensus is "take your medication". I get that. Please do not repeat it.

I think what my issue is that I miss everything. I miss being out of touch with reality. I hate the reality that I'm in right now, and I know if I stop this medication a different reality will ...

Mental Health Issues

I'm new to this forum so I am not 100% sure if this should go here, but nevertheless here I go;
I am bad at structuring paragraphs so please read the whole thing, as some important details may be lurking around somewhere. I am wondering if anyone if anyone had had similar experiences or knows about the things I'm about to explain. Before I begin I would just like to say that I ...

Intrusive thoughts and old bad memories

How do you deal with them? They came when I used to mastubate. Merging someone I don't like with a image of say hobby or else. No arousal from the person but still it's traumatic for reasons I don't understand.

I really want help so bad. I beat other ocd stuff but this is annoying.

Legal Name Change

I've been thinking of changing my name. It's pretty cheap to do.

It would be a way to further distance myself from my past and family. I don't want to carry their name anymore.

I would be keeping my first name, but using a different form if it.

I ran this by a couple friends and they all thought it was a bad idea. It would be too complicated. It would cause confusion. There would ...
