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...

Pre-Teen Visits Alternate Dimension?

My daughter is 12 years old and has exhibited some signs of sensory integration differences: can’t stand to see metal when eating, excessively cold, hyper-reacts to food textures. She sometimes has difficulty relating to others, especially authority figures; however, she is fairly well-adjusted socially with friends and in school. When she was a toddler, she spoke of “The three Hannahs,” (Hannah is not her real name) from her dreams. She seemed to believe that...

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...

Is My Girlfriend Disassociating?

I have been with my partner for over 6 years. In times of high stress, she will “go to her box” as she calls it, and another personality will take her place in the world for a while. She says she “goes to her box” to get away from the stress and that there is a faceless young girl in the box with her each time. This is NOT the person who takes over...

I dissociate often, have years of my childhood that I cannot remember, self-harm (since a toddler by using finger nails & teeth), cannot identify or connect with my own emotions let alone...

Is Creating a World in Your Head Really a Problem?

I guess as long as I can remember I have created worlds with characters that seem to have cameras following them everywhere in my head. but it would always seem as if the characters were real. they had personalities, pet peeves and even conversations with me. but their is always a camera watching. their is always a audience. the audience doesn’t interact, they just watch. I tend to get involved with this world that...
