Psychology and Mental Health Forum

I have a question...

Does anyone else wish this forum was called Mental disability rather than mental illness?

I don't have a mental illness, but I do have a mental disability:
I've lost about half my working memory and more than half of my processing speed -- all because of low B12 -- but I get really obsessed about B12, so I won't go there.

Do any of the others of you have a disability rather than an illness??? ...

Special feelings with special numbers

Does anybody else here get a good feeling when they see certain numbers or phrases (that would not normally make somebody feel good)? I personally have a few and they are related to time. Times like 12:34, 1:23, 2:34, 3:45, 4:56 make me feel good when I see them on a clock, for the most part the clock should be digital for me to get the full effect. Does anybody know what is going on ...

quick question

Could any of these symptoms be just a result of a psych disorder and/or the stress of it, or should I get it checked out?
-tension headaches
-dizzy spells
-stomach cramps
-excessive need to urinate

XPosted in the Bipolar form. (I hope that's allowed... I'm not sure exactly what's up with me yet, so I thought I'd put it on a more generalized board as well.)

Alright, this is seriously becoming a problem

If you are associating the food with the image of something grosse the only way that I can think of changing those thoughts around is with postive self talk.

Reminding yourself that whenever you are eating that is not what your mind is thinking.

Force it down so to speak. That's how i'd do it. You don't want to develop a phobia of food because of thoughts that you find disgusting.

Do you know why ...

no control...

I feel so controlled. Trapped in my own mind. It gets to intense sometimes... I don't know if I can handle it. I wish I could say more, actually explain something, but I can't. It's so confusing to me... to be trapped in this intense state with no inkling of how you might feel 5 minutes from now, even 1 minute from now. And I can't get out. I'm so trapped. Trapped. ...

Not doing so well...

And I'm really trying to put an end to my si problem, but when I get upset over such things, it makes me want to hurt myself really bad. I'm preetty stressed out right now. No where near as bad ...

what is wrong with me?

I have some problem that I need to find out what is wrong with me. I started my job in 1994 and in or around that time I would worry that I was going to get fired for stupid things or things I never did and all of a sudden it stopped for several years. Now the last couple years Particularly around Christmas time I asked for a tranfer to another dept and was told ...
