rejection pain

When you have no social network or family and you are poor and struggle with social interaction if in desperation you reach out to someone and they reject you even though they are in a position to help it feels so bad.

I watched a programme the other day where these four guys were on a building site digging a trench, but the sandy trench began collapsing on top of them. Water began filling the trench and a bolder fell and trapped the men. The were up to their chests in the sand and water, and it was slowly crushing them. As fast as the sand was removed, more fell on top of them. One man got ...

AVPD friend distancing

I have a friend who I know has AVPD but has never been diagnosed, but has been diagnosed with Agoraphobia. I have always know but never said anything, we have been like best friends for a very long time.

How do I approach him?

This guy really seemed to like me at first. Although he never said anything about AVPD specifically, he invoked psychiatry as one of the many things that are wrong with him and should be reason enough for me not to date him. He otherwise really seemed like a textbook case. He approached me in a low key, classy, non threatening way. We had a brief moment of intimacy, I went to his house twice. Both ...

Anyone else find it hard to break up?

I want to end my relationship with my girlfriend, but I can't because I feel sorry for her because she has her own mental illness. But I can't stay with her.

What impact has the present context on you

We live in different countries, in different contexts...

But probably most of us were impacted by the international and local context.

I feel like i'm losing my equilibrium. Little by little. All what helped relaxing me is unreachable or made difficult.

I receive frightening information and am totally confused about official decisions and future.

I feel so tense inside that i don't sleep or not well.

It's like my own usual difficulties are increased. I'm ...

Wow... AVPD sucks.

I need to vent. Open to feedback but understand if there isn't any. Basically, I've been going to counseling for a few months and realized how hard it is to discuss certain things with the doctor. What works for me is to write things out and share it then it's already out in the open so it's easier.

Been sober about 3 weeks and in addition to AA, been going to EA, Dual Recovery, Coda, ...
