Scared I Don't Have POCD...

Hey, so, since I didn't get any responses on my last post, I thought maybe I would post again. Like I said, I've never been officially diagnosed with OCD (of course, I've never sought a professional diagnosis out), and I'm terrified I might be a real pedophile.

Now, while I find the inside of vaginas gross, I still get nervous about the ones belonging to little girls (mostly 3 to 6 years old, blonde hair), ...

Alcohol & Meds

I'm on a low dose Zoloft + Lamictal for Bipolar 2/bipolar depression. I have a friend traveling a long distance to celebrate our big birthdays. She wants to spend one day visiting wineries. She's not a partier but enjoys wine very much. My pdoc firmly told me no more than 1 glass for the special occasion.

This post is my attempt at finding at least something I could hold on to to try and help my aunt with whom something very wrong and addiction-like has obviosly been happening during the past months and/or years.

A Question About Masochism

Hello There,

A few nights ago, while on the way to meet for a first date, my new acquaintance texted me in a manner that was both unusual and concerning. I had the opportunity to see this text message while stuck in traffic, just a few miles away from our meeting place.

First off, this lady – who is physically beautiful and has an alluring personality – sent me a picture of her bare ass, ...

Dissociation (emotional & physical) while hypomanic

Hello,

I am coming out of a 3 month mild depressive phase, I have been hypomanic 6 days straight with little rest or sleep while exercising, cleaning, or just being hyperactive all day. BUT, I’m feeling very emotionally and physically dissociative the whole time. Like my mind is blank, I “feel” emotionally flat except for occasional 1-3 second bursts that manage to break through rarely, my body is far away and physical sensation is vague ...
