One of the things that surprised me was how many of these ...

dealing with being invalidated by doctors

Hi people!

I just felt I needed to get this thing off my chest that has been bugging me:
A few days ago I visited the psychiatric emergency for the fifth time this year, I felt like I couldn't wait for my doctors appointment to adjust my antidepressants.
So I needed a new prescription and the doctor I met kept arguing with me when I told him about my symptoms, basically saying "don't do that, ...

Long-term devastating fatigue and other symptoms. Advice?

I suffer from devastating fatigue, anxiety, constant feelings of terror, hyper-awareness, visual disturbances, numbed out from reality, brain fog, stomach nausea, headache, dizziness, buzzing sensations and feeling weak in my body. I'm unable to work and unable to study.

Paranoia Problem?

I seem to have a paranoia problem - the same pattery repeats each time.

I start a new job, with the hope of connecting with people. But, over time, I get excluded, I don't have much to say and I start thinking my manager and supervisor are talking about me behind my back and I will be getting dismissed soon. I keep falling into this pattern and I don't want to. I have all these ...

So I have this weird obsession with playing with dolls or figures. I know they aren't alive and that they don't speak, but I like to pretend they do. I talk to them. I make them have families and children and give them their own stories. I like to take them with me in my purse and only have them out when I am with people who are not judging for this odd behavior. I ...

Basically what happened was at a new school I've been going to for over a month now the people there today have started to act weird. The teacher told one of the kids that a particular tool for a car (it was in auto shop) is as sharp as a razor blade. Then the kid said ...
