Guilt/shame as an adult w support needs

I feel a lot of really intense guilt and shame that I'm almost 30, I still live at home, I can't work because of mental illness and autism, and I get disability income support. I isolate myself a lot too, which probably makes things worse, but it feels comfortable and safe.

There's two sides of this experience for me. One side is deep shame, guilt, embarrassment, isolation. I don't want anyone to know, I don't ...

Time and its acceleration

So, as a child, my parents told me that time would move faster and faster. Of course, being around 8 or 9 at the time i first heard that, i had no concept of what that meant. From the time when i was 22 (1999) until about 35ish (2012) i was a daily wake-n-bake stoner, so a good deal of that time is a blur. Over the course of the last 7 years not smoking ...

Hi, I just have a quick question.....

I'm a second year college student. I'm straight A and love to learn. But I don't respond well to stress. I've always easily gotten disassociated. Almost to easily. I don't talk to psychologists or even my family, whom I have great relationships with, so I'm going anonymously on here.

I've always easily gotten disassociated, normally in periods of stress- any type of stress (trips, schoolwork, etc.) Anytime I'm ...

I apologize if this is in the wrong section I wasn't sure where else to put it as I dont know what is wrong with me.

How do you assimilate with Normals at your place of employ?

One way I get in the good graces of Normals is by being a focused heads-down worker. It’s how I avoid having to be social without offending anyone. They just think I am a Hard Worker. In my reality, it’s easier to work hard than it is to socialize. How about you?

Out-of-body experiences?

For many years I've suffered from a horrible mental health condition characterized by extreme fatigue, brain fog, dissociation, depression, numbness and strange physical symptoms. It feels as if I'm experiencing thoughts that don't actually belong in my mind. I know it's brought on by the physical distress I'm experiencing. I'm not schizophrenic because I know that these 'thoughts' don't actually take place in my mind. I'm sure these feelings will go away when my condition ...

Cycle Of Weirdness

This is a bit long and may or may not be in the right subforum.

I have these strange recurring problems that seem to cycle, they cause a pretty significant amount of destruction to my life in certain areas.. including interpersonal relationships. I recognize the dysfunctional things I do.. for the most part.. usually after the fact. Sometimes I'll recognize it while a certain behavior is happening, but I can't stop it... it's like I'm ...
