What could be wrong with me?

I'm a 52-year-old male who was diagnosed with a Pure-O Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) psychiatric disorder since the age of 25. I have no family history of psychosis or schizophrenia.
My medical treatment for my OCD has included antidepressants and benzodiazepines, with no illegal drugs neither alcohol consumption.
However, my symptoms over the past few months are not related to my typical OCD symptoms. These new symptoms include emotional numbness, -almost- no thought process, lack of ...

Can't Find Doctor Qualified Enough to Handle This

I am once again having problems with my father. He's had multiple TBIs over the years that have caused cognitive impairment. He is 71 years old.

The problem is that he violated numerous property zoning laws many years ago (the outside looked like a junkyard of a hoarder), was given extra time to clean it up because he's disabled, but could not get it cleaned. The county came in and cleaned it. The following year ...

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

Hi,
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.

At age 13 I had a sudden depressive episode that started in seconds and lasted for two months. Ultimately I recovered but afterwards I noticed a slight change in my ...

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 ...
