Why Don’t I Have Real Feelings in Relationships?

I’m 19 and have been experiencing strange emotions this past year. The deep connections I felt with friends are suddenly forced and it is almost painful to be around people. I have also had strange spells of depersonalization. My ex boyfriend died a couple years ago which led me into a spell of depression and I don’t know if I ever made it out or if I’m just used to it. I’m constantly annoyed...

I don’t know why, but lately i have been searching all over the internet for a...

My Imaginary Friend Is Becoming Too Real

I’ve had an imaginary friend for years. Lately, when I see myself in the mirror, I hear her telling me how worthless I am. She seems to take over and I can’t do anything to stop her. I’ve been carving words, of her choice, into my skin because I can’t help but agree with her when she tells me what a failure I am. I feel as though I need a permanent reminder of...

Constantly Changing Diagnoses

I was first diagnosed in 2008 after I had been hearing voices for a little under a year. After 1 1/2 to 2 years I was stabilized with meds. No voices. Only a couple of suicide attempts. I then had a baby. About a year and 1/2 later, voices returned. Even more evil and cruel than before. Medication is not working for them, but makes it slightly more tolerable. My diagnosis has gone from...

Paranoid?

My close friends say I’m being paranoid, while another says its a mild form of schizophrenia. It kind if just started happening when I moved to Canada about two years ago. I’m always caught up on things like: -People watching me through my living room window (there’s a big window that faces the neighborhood) and they watch my actions through that window. -I’m always thinking about other people if they are talking about me...

Is this DID?

From the : I got beaten up as a kid. The one memory I can remember right now is in third person. Some big guy jumped up and down on my back until blood came out of my mouth. Anyways, I randomly “change” a lot and I talk different and I upset my friends when it happens because I am very angry or uncaring and so different in these states. There is one which...

She sometimes has difficulty relating to others, especially authority figures; however, she is fairly well-adjusted socially with friends and in school.

Dissociative Episodes

I have recently experienced a number of dissociative episodes and been going to see a psychologist. The psychologist has suggested ERP. Will this help? Here is more information about exposure response prevention. This type of treatment is often used for obsessive-compulsive disorders and if the therapist believes that this is a tool that would be helpful it certainly is worth trying. Wishing you patience and peace, Dr. Dan Proof Positive Blog @ PsychCentral

What’s Wrong with Me?

I’m 18 years old, and I often feel there is something wrong with me. I don’t have friends and don’t care too. I feel as if they are more work than their worth. I isolate myself from others. It’s not because I’m afraid of people or anything of that nature, I just feel more comfortable by myself. The only time I enjoy company is if it’s of the other sex, and I’m interested in...

3-Year-Old Has Identity Confusion

My 3 year old daughter is called two different names depending on who in the family is talking to her. Some people call her by her real name and some by her self appointed nickname. She also refers to herself by both at different times. Recently she asked for a snack, but the way she stated it was ‘(nickname) gets one type of treat and (her real name) gets another type of treat. Basically...
