I Keep Losing Time

From Canada: Ok, I really don’t know what to do. I’ve been losing time. It started two years ago, but it would only be for a few minutes. It’s gotten worse lately. It could be anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. I’m a 23 year old male and I live on my own. Recently, I’ve woken up twice with strange marks on my body, the first time it was deep scratch...

I Feel like I’m Losing Grip

First of all, I didn’t know which topic to put it under, since it also involves my husband, and the other, that being psychosis, but since I’m the person feeling it, I believe it should be psychosis. Allow me to explain-both me and my husband have been diagnosed with some very serious disorders-mine being a VERY severe case of OCD, and my husband schizoaffective disorder, more leaning toward bipolar. I’m going to just my...

Dissociation, Avoidant, or Antisocial Personality Disorder?

I am emotionally detached; I am not capable of feeling love (or at least I cannot recognize the feeling), and my other emotions are muted (the only emotion that I can feel strongly is annoyance). I cannot really feel guilt, and have little empathy (I feel sorry for the abused children and sometimes the homeless, but otherwise I could not care less about anybody, not even family members). I do not react at all...

Could I Possibly Have DID?

Okay, so I’ll try to make this short and concise. I have these people (really they’re more of voices) in my mind, and they all have names and personality traits and even different hand writings, and when I think about them, I can picture exactly what they look like. Sometimes, I’ve even seen them in my dreams. They have conversations, sometimes amongst themselves and sometimes with me. They “take over” my body when I...

Experiencing Weird Symptoms Since October

Ever since October, 2013, I’ve been sort of… Out of it. It started with a panic attack; the first panic attack i’ve ever had, or at least from what I remember. It was an odd feeling. I felt numb and around the sides of my head felt tingly, almost cold. My vision felt zoomed in, although whenever staring at objects like my hands or anything else that was actually protruding off the wall or...

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...

Should I Confront My Grandfather?

From the : My grandfather sexually abused my uncle and aunt. My uncle sexually abused my mother in return. My grandfather spent their childhood turning them against one another; this my mom wouldn’t let us stay with them by ourselves after a certain age. My mother suffered from DID and her therapist thinks my aunt does as well, along with bipolar disorder. My mother got better, but recently my aunt attempted suicide. She is...

Multiple Personality Disorder?

I’m just a normal 14 year old school kid, but lately i have had an urge to develop Multiple Personality Disorder. I am honestly just really curious as to how it would be like living with MPD, and I wanted to know if there is a way to develop it without being traumatized or suffering a similar event. I don’t know why, but lately i have been searching all over the internet for a...

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...
