palpitatons and insomnia - anxiety or something else

I’m 35 and for the last year almost now I’ve had issues with middle of the night insomnia, as it’s called. So that is, I’m fine drifting off to sleep but then would wake up at random times in the early morning, anywhere between 1:30am to 3/4am with a standard bed time of around 11:30 – 12:30 (occasionally later than this). And when I wake up, I am wide awake and just cannot go back ...

Don’t know how to deal with her.

My mother (70yrs)has always acted strange. This behavior is not new, as she has ALWAYS acted this way. The quirky things she does she does do more.She only sees the negativity in people and if there is no negatively there she makes something up in her mind. She complains about the past constantly. She complains about things that happened 20,30,40 and 50 years ago. This is done on a daily basis. My mom lives in ...

Fed up of being me


Feeling under pressure and threatened

I changed job recently. It was a gruelling interview, and I couldn't seem to say the right thing. They wanted someone to deal with all sorts of billing. They even mentioned training me on the difficult billing and me meeting the companies who supply us with the work, as a bit of marketing - to show how efficient were are.

Despite having a terrible interview, I got the job. ...

Self-Reflection: Past Nervous Breakdown

Could you even call what I had a nervous breakdown? Apologies if this is the wrong board to post this in btw, I wasn't entirely certain whether this post of mine belonged in Living with Mental Illness or Anxiety or some other board. If it does belong elsewhere would a moderator kindly move it please?

That aside, I couldn't help but reflect on my life these past several years (technically I guess more than several.) ...

My boyfriend has self defeating personality disorder.

This is my first time posting here but I feel like this is where I could get the help I need. I'm going to go into details just to make sure that I'm providing as much information as possible. I'm a 20 year old female and my boyfriend (20 as well) is a masochist. He has been for as long as he can remember whether in his social or sexual life. We've been together for ...

I fell in love with my professor and went insane

About a year ago, I was going through a rough time in college and became infatuated with my middle aged professor. I never told him how I felt but we became fairly close and I was really good student. I kind of saw him as a father figure.

One day, I noticed him using, in class, the same phrases I had said to him in office hours, but in a different context. It felt like ...

This may seem like a totally weird question, but I need to find out this.
I went to see my psychiatrist yesterday with my mom and I mentioned that I feel pleasure when imagining myself violating men. So now they both know this, my mom and my psychiatrist.
I want to adopt a child when I'm older and I'm afraid my mom will ask for the child custody with the help of my psychiatrist claiming ...

Is it normal to plan your suicide?

Any mental health professionals on here to answer this???

I've battled with "depression" and low self esteem issues for most of my life (57).

I've never seriously considered suicide, but have planned how I would if I ever decided to or had to for health reasons (I wouldn't suffer and have my family go through hell if I was diagnosed to die in a short period of time with no hope of recovery.).

I ...
