TOCD or Autogynephilia?

Hey all,

I guess I had OCD most of my life, but like many others, my OCD really manifested when I was about 18. It started with somatic obsessions about urination, to obsessions about intelligence, then diabetes and kidney failure, then homosexuality, and now these autogynephilia/trans fears.

I saw a therapist for this, she was a licensed psychologist, and she diagnosed me with OCD. I told her about all of my obsessions, but I do ...

Help From Rock Bottom

How do I get help? I think I am avoidant, possibly with ppd misdiagnosed as borderline. Of course group therapy (DBT) ended up making me worse and compounding my issues. I dropped out, and still use some of the skills I've learned to help cope with the hallucinations, extreme paranoia and all else but the experience of opening myself up to these people and having it go wrong has been horribly crushing. I can't be ...

Always hurting people's hearts in relationships

I think I can never break this cycle.

As stated in other threads, I have rage problems, but in relationships/affairs I am the opposite.

I always make people fall in love with me, and always break their hearts. I get enchanted by the person, say romantic things, sing them songs, and the sh*t is done.

When I get the person to fall in love with me, I start to think "this is not my true ...

Extreme Disappointments?

I'm not quite sure what I'm looking for here, but I guess I'm looking for some perspective from anyone who might be able to offer some? ^^; Maybe if anyone has had any similar experiences.

Firstly, I've posted here before but I'm making a new thread for something specific and new. I'm also not certain what I have, although it has been suspected I could be borderline, possibly bipolar, possibly autistic... and I have never ...

Should I give my ex another chance?

Basically we were together for 2 years. She is in her mid 20's & I am in my late 30's. She broke up with me over 20 times. I believe she may have been slightly narcissistic. She could be very clingy & in the begining verbally abusive although this did stop. She broke up with me a month ago saying that she didnt love me. She said that sje loved me but not in a ...

The Agonizing Nightmare of Drug-Induced Akathisia

When I tell doctors I have drug-induced akathisia, and that it's incredibly painful, they do not believe me. They say my pain is a mental health issue, and they have all methodically undermined my credibility in my permanent record. https://www.madinamerica.com/2018/11/drug-induced-akathisia/

Has anyone ever heard a mental health "professional" even use the word Akathisia in groups or an office visit ? I never have.
