Narcissistic Personality Disorder


I'm wondering if I am a narcissist? I watched the entire video and realize I have most of the symptoms.

I don't have too much empathy for other people and I'm very selfish.

What do you guys think?

Looking for Advice: Crawling out of Homelessness

Hey all. Long time member. Long time non poster lol.

To spare about three hours to details, I have found myself in a pretty crap position. In August 2019 I went into psychoses and despite a "support" group of 6 family members, an 80+ year old psychiatrist, and a soon to be ex wife, I bugged out to the middle of woods with no food, water, or shelter in May 2020. I lived on top ...

Failure to reach goals


My life has been pretty much stagnant for the last ten years. I haven't achieved much and I still have the same goals I had ten years ago that I still didn't do.

There's been a little bit of progress, but mostly it's been 1 step forward, 2 steps backwards.

I've tried making schedules, weekly or daily goals, deadlines, To-do lists; I tried different apps or strategies (marking days on the calendar, setting daily ...

I don't know what to do.. Seeking healing and alternative co

I don't know what to do or where to turn. I feel at disparity often due to not having an option. I used to want to create a place called "option hope" for people that was run more like a hostel or organic farm commune for those in times of breakdown or distress. Now I could not imagine such a venture from what only myself has endured. I am tired and on the brink of ...

Realizing You Have Mental Illness

Hello people,

This is my first time posting on a mental health forum. I am reaching out because I really feel like I am in a lonely helpless place. For me, and probably many others, the virus has made my life much more isolated. As I get older my family gets further apart and that it is making my illness worse.

I guess the topic of this post, is how did you feel when you ...

Why did I jump into the cold stream with my clothing on?!

I always had these little quarks that I would always do for the heck of it. I have a certain road that I don't drive on(and close my eyes when someone else drives me on it), a playlist of songs I can't listen to, I even made some art that I won't allow myself to view.

I would make these from odd episodes I'd get. Where I was act impulsive. I would twitch and fall ...

There was a time when I was good in studies and I had good friends but over the years, I lost everything.
