Stressful Work Environment

Certain co-workers are currently making the environment at my workplace a very, very difficult place to be. From Thursday until now, weighty dissociation episode aside, I've been on a constant wave of being either incredibly angry or incredibly anxious.

Video games, anger, and an out-of-control ego.

My relationship with League of Legends borders on unhealthy. And it's all my fault.

I don't know why, but I have intense mental issues. On top of Asperger's Syndrome or some other sort of high-functioning autism that makes socializing nearly impossible, I cannot play games without getting emotionally unhinged. I do not like dying. I do not like losing. I do not like anything that is not exactly what I want to happen and how ...

This is my story so far. I am 52 and at 13 my brother got knocked down and killed by a car on his way home from school at 10years old in 1979. Fast forward to now and even when I see the school I used to drop my son off, in my mind I think of my brothers name instantly instead of my sons.

Tips for asking for help at psych-ward?

I didn't really know where to put this, so mods you can just move it if you think it fits better somewhere else.

Lots of stuff has happened since I last did a proper post here.
I've "finally" been admitted to a psych-ward, and I still don't know how to feel about it. It's ok I guess.

I began to worry about this and I thought I was attracted to children, corpses, and animals because I always felt that thing in my vagina while I was having those ...
