Urge to watch my baby suffer

I was very hesitant about putting this out on the internet, but it's worrying me more and becoming more frequent.

Over a week ago my wife and I had our first baby, a beautiful girl named Emily. For the first week I just wanted to look at her, hold her, and be with her as much as possible. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, I suddenly got this very intoxicating feeling whenever she cried intensely. This ...

Schizophrenia test

Just an FYI that I like the psychcentral.com screening test for schizophrenia. So many screening tests don't distinguish between schizophrenia and dissociative disorders but this one clearly does (or else it is broken, very very broken). Too bad it doesn't suggest any alternative when it reports no schizophrenia but the user endorses items such as:

  • I hear or see things that others do not hear or see
  • I feel it is very difficult for ...

Starting EMDR

Hello,

Wanted to make a quick post about EMDR. I am starting it soon with a trauma DID PTSD doctor. I am definitely skeptical and the articles I read about it make it seem too good to be true -- talks of specific PTSD trauma being resolved in a few sessions.

Any thoughts on the process or experience with it?

Thank you.

I don't know if this is ocd, or what is wrong with me

Well I don't know how to start with this, but here we go. Well from childhood, I find when someone has a pimple in their face to be disguising, like a dark spot in their face, if I found that someone is having pimples I won't go near them, talk to them, when ever i see them, I will get thoughts of disgust. I don't know why. Also, for example, when someone says they suffered ...
