How to make yourself open up

Hello. I'd like to ask for advice.
I'm a very closed person, even though I have quite a few people I get along with and could say I like them, I'd never call anyone my "friend". I don't know how trust feels to be honest, so my existence is really lonely - I reduce my emotional caring for people to a minimal level and expect the same treatment.
At the very same time, I know ...

the therapist who is a mental health survivor

Hello,

Are there psychologists/psychiatrists here who are survivors of severe mental health conditions?
If yes, when did you speak up about your condition/s? Did you experience any discrimination or were you judged to be inadequate (as a mental health professional) because of it?

For others, what's your perception on mental health professionals who had or have (but are successfully managed) psychological disorders?

I'm currently taking my masters in clinical psychology. More than a decade ago, ...

I am perpetually stuck in my life

I can't move forward in my life. I suffer from strong anxiety, shyness, insomnia spells that resist sleeping pills, low self-esteem, clinical depression, and I have Aspergers on top of all of these things. I don't have any special talents despite wanting to be a good guitarist (I just can't learn most songs no matter how hard I try to learn them) and an artist (I mess up whenever I attempt drawing or painting) but ...

hold on tightly let go lightly

I wondered, if someone else has found a way through? From having most things to having very little, this includes the loss in opportunity of a relationship over 12 years. To now with regret of over working, over prioritising work and burning out, these cumulative experiences seemed to have shrunk my capacity, financially and certainly cognitively etc to be the tuned-in and the go-getter that I used to be. I can see and plan to ...

Is this greed, or hope?

I had an extremely hard time to get admitted to a university two years ago due to my grades (and some other problems i couldnt control). Not getting into a university and being hopeless about it was making me have suicidal thoughts. I used to think about how to kill myself painlessly.

Everything changed when i got accepted into a university. That also, not a very bad university, it was all i needed when i ...

Looking for some hope...

I wrote a book about my schizophrenia. It's only 50 pages long, and a guy i met online is helping me to self publish it. It will be published on Easter week, I am feeling some nervousness and anxiety about it now. Even though I have come along way, i still get depression and anxiety and take meds for it and abilify for the voices. I haven't heard voices or delusions since 2016 when I ...

Endeavor to rest..., before I present a weapon in protest.

Cane my flesh, stone me to death- exsanguinate my pestilence: to make vulnerable my pneuma with your esoteric hypocrisies. And when your castle breaks, and your feet are dry: you will feel the strength of compassion- bestowed by the wrongfully accused rain down on those all around you.

Ineluctable you remain; all alone to be seated: no light, no music; pathetic- alone forever.

Hoping to feel better: begging for charity of rape- to molest this ...

Being Attractive/Finding my future soulmate

Hey guys this is a new thread of mine I wanted to start. I've posted previously on the BDD forum discussing my disorder and the imperfections with myself and this ties in to that.

I've recently been noticing that my BDD has slightly been better. It was in horrid condition before but I'm feeling pretty intrepid to talk about my BDD as well as thoughts I've always had.

I'm heavily into families and kids. One ...
