I am not sure if it is related to my PMDD, Anxiety, or my OCD but I have been repeating a few certain names throughout the day, then random names pop in and out of my head, and then having bizarre thoughts, and having inner dialogue. I have never done this before and it is...

Issues with My Long-Term Girlfriend and Mother

From the : I recently moved to Philadelphia to be with my girlfriend after we have had a long distance relationship for 5 years.

Random Flashbacks that Don’t Seem to be Triggered by Anything Specific

There are moments in my day that I’ll completely stop what I’m doing and have a flashback for maybe a max of 5 seconds. I’ll just stand there, blank and motionless. I can feel myself doing it, it just takes me a second to snap myself out of it — (this is not the case when I’m not focused on something, situations where I’m watching a movie or in the shower I find myself...

My Husband Sees Dead People

My husband’s mother died 2 years ago, but yesterday he told me that he had an hour long conversation with her. He said he’s been seeing her everywhere, and that she’s trying to tell him something. He also said that’s he’s been hearing voices who are not his mother, not constantly, that are always negative or fear based (they’re lying, Run, don’t touch that). I know these things are indicative of schizophrenia but he’s...

I Keep Thinking About My Family Dying

From Bangalore India: This all started when my grandpa passed away last year. I saw my grandpa die as they bought him home from the hospital. He came home and slept immediately, and he didn’t wake up again. My uncle performed CPR, and I tried calling the ambulance. The call didn’t go through and to this day I feel I am responsible for his death. In reality, if the call had even gone through,...

I’m Not Happy

I really hope I get an answer because it’ll go a long way to help me out in life. And in my part of the world therapy isn’t too common so life’s problems are blamed on several other weird stuff. I am 21 and it feels like my life’s crash down already. I got admitted into the university, everyone in my humble home had high hopes for me. I aced all my entry exams...

Feeling Numbness When Thinking of My Father Who Passed Away

My father passed away two and a half years ago. I suffered from depression on and off over the past two years, though I thought it was related to school pressure (looking back, I’m not so sure). I did have the random bouts of crying when I missed him, but lately I feel numb when I think about him. I just went through some old pictures and I did not feel upset or even...

Recurring Deaths

I’m a 23 year old woman who has recently been thrown into a huge amount of responsibility due to the death of my father-and roughly a week later, the death of my mother. In Summer of 2013 my father was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer and within only a month, he withered away into nothing and was gone. This was as much of a shock as it was a blow. I was not prepared...
