I feel dead

I can't explain it but I have nothing to look forward to really at least not everyday and sometimes I sit and do nothing. :(

Don't care if I die I feel like my life is complete. Though I am not going to kill myself don't worry.

I doubt anyone will reply but at least I tried.

I get this feeling... Does anyone else?

Without going into my history or anything, I want to know if anyone experiences anything similar to this or knows what it could possibly be.

I get this feeling. I've had it all my life, the first time I remember having it I was about 5 years old.
It comes on all of a sudden, with no apparent trigger. It is physical, extremely strong and overpowering in it's intensity. It overtakes my whole body and ...

I’m in distress and finding it hard to keep going

Hey guys,

I’ve registered on here because I’m driving myself absolutely crazy with obsessive intrusive thoughts that are taking away all of my happiness.

I was ambitious, intelligent, successful. Then I got into a relationship which lasted for 8 years. My partner belittled me, ignored me, gaslighted me, completely isolated me from the rest of the world. I’ve always been a very gifted painter - since very young. It was my pride and joy in ...

Hi. Currently waiting for assessment (appointment in around a month via NHS)

I currently identify with both BPD and C-PTSD, fitting most of the criteria for both. I am aware there's some debate that they overlap or are the same thing. Can people compare and contrast these two for me. What are the symptoms that are in both? What symptoms appear only in one condition/disorder. Is it common to have both?

Am I a psychopath? Help please

I think im a psychopath, can someone help.

I’m 19, and have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety. I think it stemmed from prolonged use of recreational drugs, mdma, coke, acid, weed, dmt, etc, as I have a very addictive personality

Since I can remember I’d taunt people until they break down. It started with my younger brother growing up, I did it with my parents, I now do it with my girlfriend. I lack ...

Pain threshold

Hi all,

sorry if this is a wrong forum to post this question in; it's a general question aimed towards all members, and I hope it makes sense in the way it is phrased. I apologise if my post is in any way a trigger for physical pain.

I've come to realize my best friend and I process physical pain very differently. Of course, it is very difficult to estimate which person has a higher ...

need help but terrified of being "treated" again

Long story short. I had a horrible episode when i was 30. Never had dealt with significant childhood trauma. Go to kaiser. they see me for maybe 20 minutes and prescribe paxil. I immediately went into a manic and suicidal state. Not like me. This turned into a whirlwind of them prescribing more and more meds to control the isssues the meds were causing me. Risperadol, lithium, depakote, seroqueal, trazadone, clonopine. I could go on. ...

What is this called?

I was raised by a narcissistic sociopath then later developed schizophrenia. I was 24 when I ran away and iniated no contact. Now I find myself almost 45 and realized that I married an almost exact replica of her and now I can't seem to find the energy or whatever you call it to escape this time. Is there a word for the mental and emotional drag? I feel completely without power. What should I ...

Sounds stupid but... why do I not care?

I've been living my life so strangely.
Struggled with everything -- BED, bulimia, anorexia, BPD, major depression, self harm were all diagnosed. But it seems like the list never ends... CONSTANT OCD thoughts, neverending cycles of obsession, I have extreme breakdowns every day and oscillate between extreme emotion and numbness. Spent a week in a ward. I struggled with substance abuse this year too, have barely been making it to class, I have very few ...

Can anyone tell me what is going on with me?

Ever since I was a little kid i remember having some anxiety and depression, which I think was due to loneliness. I spent a lot of time alone since I'm an only child of a single mother who worked a lot. We were pretty low class, and I went to private schools so it was embarrassing to me that we didn't have much, so I lied and acted like I did, putting on a mask ...
