Mom of Son married to someone with FD needs help

Hello - I am new to this forum and am looking for help from those in similar situations. To summarize, something didn't seem right and I did not like the way my DIL (only a girlfriend at the time) treated my son. She treated him like a slave and is extremely controlling. He (nor I) stood up for him. He claimed he loved her - for what, is beyond me. All the time they dated ...

somethings wrong with me its like im an actor performing

Let me start out by saying that I should probably be seeing a professional about all of this, but I’m too scared and ashamed too. So… I’m here. And I know that I’m just barging in here without having posted anything at all or participated, but if there’s anyone out there who would be willing to listen to me and give me their perspective on what the hell is wrong with me, then I’d be ...

New to the forum

Hi! I think for me the worst part of this is that I don’t have anyone to talk to that is like me. So, when it is already hard enough to admit that I have facticious disorder, it is also harder to not have anyone that knows what/how I am thinking. Does anyone else feel this way?

Trying to give yourself an actual illness?

Hi everyone, I'm new here so I hope I'm doing this oke but I've been really struggling with wanting to give myself Psychogenic Non Epileptic Seizure (PNES) or at least make myself black out spontaneously. However, it's definitely not working yet although I'm fairly certain I've damaged quite a bit of brain cells trying to make myself black out spontaneously. And it's driving me nuts. More important is that I actually want to develop PNES ...

Is this facticious disorder?

I feel like I faked my depression all along. I started suspecting it when I was 11- I was coming to terms with my sexual identity and lost some personal friendships which left me feeling lonely, deeply hurting, hating myself, isolated, and suicidal. And my dad was narcissistic, that too. I thought it would go away normally but it lasted for weeks. I self-diagnosed using online symptom checkers before I got my official diagnosis for ...

Guilt and hope

When I realized what I had done to myself, I had a panic attack. When I thought about how other people were hurt by what I was doing, I wanted to take my own life.

Doctor said to me, "I want you to forgive yourself."

If I were going to go to jail over any of this, it would have happened by now.

Forgiving yourself takes time, and it not easy. I was watching a ...

Is this a Factitious Disorder?

For as long as I can remember, I've always wanted something to be wrong with me, or something to happen to me. Something that no one wants(chronic illness, mental issues, etc).

I become almost obsessed with the idea and daydream about "what if this happened" or "what if I got this illness?", "what if I had this mental issue". I want to have an eating disorder even though I have no body issues/any typical reasons ...

Issues (legit) in FD

There is a definite issue with cognitive issues, I think some of us will agree.

I found someone to do the neuropsychiatric testing, which sounds fantastic. It will be nice to know what to do for this stuff.

And the thyroid is being tested, results will give (hopefully) and answer to the autoimmune issues, the burning and tingling in my hands and feet-which has been misdiagnosed multiple times, and though I have been no help ...

How do you make a decision for a real medical issue?

Knowing or acknowledging you may have factitious disorder or doctors think this of you really at first is a shock. Did doctors come out and tell you or did you read it in your medical record? I found out after reading my medical record that it was diagnosed a year earlier but no one bothered to tell me or sit down and discuss it.

After you find out you have this, how have you been ...

Abuse predictors in FD


As I have been going over my own "timeline" and looking at the abuse that was going on in the development of the FD, it began to be in order to stay home because at school, there was 30+ (in number) of bullies. At home, I knew what to expect and how to avoid it-and there was just one there.

The development of FD seems to have a consistent problem of to not go ...
