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. I can’t do the basics at home, I can hardly stand to be with my daughter and I know that I’m failing her, I can’t even stand to be be around the dog let alone walk it. I have ended up ...

Assessment for therapy session

I went for an assessment today after referring myself.

I didn't quite know what to expect to be honest but it went well.

He's referring me to see a friend of his, she sits next to him in the office. (he told me that for some reason).

It's weird, I told him things that I've never told another living soul before.

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.
I value honesty and am a bit cynical of the norm to say you're good, yet I very often say "good!" and pretend I am. Sometimes that makes me feel fake... or at least kind of weird that I lied about how I feel. Sometimes I try to be a bit more ...

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 ...

Don't get me wrong here, I'm not feeling sorry for myself (well maybe just a little).

Sometimes I feel like I'm the most misunderstood person in the world.

It's like what I'm trying to portray just isn't translating and people see something quite hideous. I do understand that some of it is probably my own insecurity and paranoia because I do have a lot to hide.

The thing is though, people don't know what it ...

Christmas Blues

Anyone who knows me well enough can tell you I absolutely love Christmas. I alway have ever since I was little. I love the atmosphere, the music, the decorations, everything.

Unfortunately, in the past few years, I've been dealing with incredibly scary thoughts and fears, and being sad as a result. I feel cheated in a way, like life took something precious from me.

It's just not fair...
