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.

I started taking my new medication (Ritaline) today morning, and although my contact nurse confirmed to me that my new medication should kick in instantly, nothing's happened. Given the nature and severity of my condition and ...

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 ...

Keep to self or?

I need some advice. I decided to come to this forum to ask for advice on a particular subject. 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 ...

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 ...

Living in Limbo and never doing

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. I will be turning 31 tomorrow and for the last 20 years I can recall myself saying this is the year that I am going to change. This is the year I will make things happen. I never do. For as long as I can remember I have always ...
