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 ...

Obsessive thoughts and emotions, repeating memory

Okay so... I was here like, two months ago? I made a different thread which really helped me a lot, and... I hope it's okay if I just make a new thread to talk specifically about what seems to be bothering me right now. ^^;

Last time I talked about itemizing and whatever. This time, I feel a need to talk about something that goes on constantly in my head, like...

I dunno, I think ...

I don’t want to be alive because I hate myself. BDD

So I was diagnosed with body dismorphia two years ago and was put on medication. I remember from a very young age I always felt different to everyone else. I was very quiet in school and hated social situations. In secondary school I dropped out in the first year as I couldn’t cope with it. I basically lived in my bedroom for years and wouldn’t leave the house and it all comes down to how ...

Obsessive,constant thinking and analysing

Hello everyone!

It is one of my first posts at this forum, so I ask you for understanding.

Since about six years I am very slow-moving. My work efficiency , measured in corporate jobs, is 30%-60%.

In 2010, after examination period at my university: convultions, nervous shake-ups like in epilepsy, I was afraid of crowds of people, getting into an elevator. These sympthoms passed away very quickly after medicines. For about a year later I ...

(Urgent?) Need Help!!! Living by myself

Hello everyone. I really had nowhere else to turn as I am too ashamed to talk to my family members. Firstly, I turned 18 in january, and recently graduated highschool. Since feb. 28th I have been living by myself in my grandparents home as they had to travel to a different province for health related reasons.

Medication pro's and con's

I wasn't sure if this was the right forum for this post or not. If anyone knows where on here to redirect this, please let me know.

I've been on a few different medications for a while now (amitriptyline, Effexor, and lamictal) and I'm finally finding a sort of level after years.
The issues with that are, even though I'm less anxious and depressed, I'm still having a hard time pulling myself out of those ...

Frequently Imagining Others Sharing/Witnessing my Experience

To provide some background, I am a 24 year old woman with OCD. I've always done this thing which I find kind of strange, and I'm curious to know whether anyone else does any of these things or if anyone has any thoughts on them.

Thing number one: I often fixate on particular people. These aren't people you'd expect either- they're not my peers, or someone I have a crush on. Rather they're often employers. ...
