She’s Invading My Privacy

A girl that I’ve never met or seen got obsessed with me via Twitter and I ended up working with her which turned out to be a disaster. She planned the whole thing. That was two and half years ago, I left six months later and since she’s been stalking/monitoring me. I’m a very private person and I honestly hate it, it gets to the very core of me. It isn’t the first time...

I’ve gone to a couple therapists when I was a child because my parents thought I needed to “figure some stuff out” but I haven’t been in about 10 years. I’m a junior in college and I’m very panic-y when it comes to diseases. I’m gay and am in a 14 month stable relationship with my 25 year old...

Very Odd Episode

Earlier this year (mid February) I quit my job to start a business. I got so consumed with it that I stopped attending college, reasoning with myself that quitting both school and job would allow me to focus on my business. I went nonstop on my business for about a month before everything fell apart. I’m normally very quiet, but I was forcing myself to get out and socialize and spread the word about...

Never Been Diagnosed, But I May Have a Problem with My Personality and/or Psychosis

Hello, I am concerned about my health. I feel like I have a superiority complex and that I am above people which can seem odd or laughable in conversations. I have not been diagnosed, however I feel I may have a personality disorder and some mild psychosis.

Delusional and Not Sure What to Do

I think there is something wrong with me. I am smart, everyone tells me that. I am very smart, that’s what they all say. However, I am also smart enough and brave enough to admit that there is something very, very, VERY wrong with me. I am obsessed by many things but I don’t tell people about it because I’m worried that they will judge me. The lines seem to blur between reality and...

When they enter the room she loses her identity completely and thinks that she is the other person. She...
