Catastrophic Thinking

This is my first post and im not sure what to say. Im driving myself mad with my thoughts. The biggest thing is my Gay bestfriend whom I live with and have for multiple years is so important to me. My old bestfriend left me in an awful way and idk how to not hold on so tight or fear he doesn't want me in his life. That he prefers someone else. That someone would ...

I feel like I am retarded.

I am uncapable of understanding why people under the age of 14 years should not have intercourse. I also don't understand why some people with autism or mental illness can't have relationships or intercourse (according to the law).
Can someone explain, please?

Don't remember childhood/things I just watched/people's face

I don't remember my childhood. Maybe I wasted my childhood. I have a complex about not having a normal childhood. I've always been uncommunicative, I felt dead during my childhood, living day by day, being afraid, being here only by existing.
I'm grown up now. I'm better now, more sociable, lively. But, I don't feel normal, people have their childhood and I don't. I don't know how to reply them when they ask me ...

Severe cognitive problems

I am a 24 yr old student from Poland looking for help.

Warning I'm prone to anxiety, especially health anxiety, don't laugh if things I write look irrational.

Basically the issues is my cognitive decline that I've been experiencing more or less since age 13.

What is the bias of “do what I say, not what I do”?

Hello all (I apology if this belongs to another category).

How do you call the bias of a professional who fails to recognize his mistake as a professional and instead reacts on a personal level.

Example: a web marketer who does a mistake in the way he markets his own web marketing course and fails to recognize it, yet his job is to teach how to market properly.

This bias often concerns teachers, example with ...

Significant cognitive decline; Any thoughts?

Hello all,

I'm a 22 year old male and for the past 4.5 years, I have been dealing with a significant cognitive functioning issue. It has made it difficult for understanding anything with the slightest bit of complexity. As someone who's strong point was by far math, science, critical/logical thinking, and problem solving, it was quite the dramatic transition. When it happened, I had to drop out of high school and saw many doctors to ...

Mixing up dates and times, not just forgetting them

TL;DR short version:

I'm starting to miss out on events and meetings because I don't realise that 9:30 minus 1.5 hours is NOT 9:30, it is 8:00. Also, Friday plus two days does not equal Saturday, it's Sunday. And if yesterday were Saturday, then yesterday cannot be Friday.

I feel so sure of a schedule in my head that I feel no need to double check the time. And I don't realise that there's a ...

Severely Deficient Autobiographical Memory (SDAM)

I am not personally experiencing this, however I believe my husband is, and I am looking for experiences, advice, help, anything really.

We have been together since we were teenagers, and we are in our forties now, so most of my memories are his too. But he is having a very difficult time remembering things that have occurred in his life. Big things, milestones. Not everything is gone, but I'm scared that one day, it ...

Various mental issues for the past 3 months

Hey all,

I'm new to this forum, and probably wouldn't be posting on it were it not for what I see as the increasing severity of my mental issues.

To make a very long story short, I have a diagnosis of ADD (the inattentive subtype), and have had various issues with depression and anxiety for a while (mostly situational). Recently, however, a number of events occurred which seemed to have opened Pandora's box, so to ...
