Afraid of burning alive in car crash

All my life I have been afraid of burning alive in a car or bus crash. I don't drive but I take the bus because I need to.

There was that bus crash in italy where it caught fire a few months ago and I happened to pass on the same highway a day earlier. While I was afraid of burning before, I am now even more terrified.

I also did a stupid thing and ...

Perfectionism is causing me anxiety issues

I'm struggling with anxiety and perfectionism at work. This has been a recurrent issue and is probably my most persistent problem.

I work compiling invoices for my job. I have a junior colleague who deals with the more straightforward, smaller cases whereas I deal with the more complex, high value work. I help my junior colleague with queries and claiming money on the cases.

in June 2021 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and needed ...

Negative habits

Why do I prefer to lose the whole of something rather than just part of it? For example, if I'm half an hour late for bed because of work, I start zapping and losing several hours under the pretext that I've already lost time.

Parts of myself becoming inaccessable after talking

Sometimes there'll be a private fantasy, or thought, that's part of my life, then if I speak it, or say something about in the wrong way, it's as if I give away its hiding place, or kill it.

I've heard people say that each time we remember something we change it, I feel some things I do are infected, when I perform them wrong to another. It's as if forever after I see it in ...

Governor Newsom's Mental Health Bill

What are your thoughts on the Bill Gov. Newsom recently signed? (Mental Health Services Act, and Assembly Bill 531) It looks like they're increasing funding for mental health which is good, but I'm concerned about the possibility of involuntary treatment. Am I catastrophizing that they may decide to put anyone with MH issues bad enough to warrant disability into an asylum? I don't believe California would do that but I live in a predominately right ...

What am i lacking in?

Over a decade or so, i have been facing issues with social support. It seems like most of the times, i don't want to be in touch with people, and some times the ones from whom i seek advice or support tend to ignore me in a toxic way.

Friends don't take up my call. And, sometimes they ignore me in many things. All i lack is faking skills which keep friendships intact. But, i ...

Zyprexa (Olanzapine) Side Effects: Need Advice

Hi everyone--first time poster. Female, mid-30s, currently on 15mg Zyprexa daily (and going down to 12.5mg next week).

I might be the most evil person in history

So let me start off by saying when I was about 6 or 7 I was reading a magazine at a local store while my mother went shopping. This woman came over to me and whispered in my ear “your evil”

To this day I 100% believe her! I can be one of the nicest person you can ever meet on the outside and how I conduct myself in public. On the inside is a ...
