No one permits me to join their conversation and whenever they let me to join, they probably want to ridicule me in between. I just can’t do anything right,...

I Don’t Feel like I’m an Actual Person

From the : I’ve been feeling a lot but not enough at the same time. I go through a lot of emotions but I can’t recognize them, and a lot of what I do feels disconnected and bland. I don’t enjoy what I used to, and even when I think I’m enjoying something, I don’t feel strongly enough about it. I understand that this is supposed to be one of my biggest periods of...

I don’t know what this is but from 6 years I can’t feel my anger right. Nothing has helped. Please, I...

Anger, Hate, Violent Urges

Really bad temper. Gets angry easily. Enjoys the thought of beating the crap out of the people I hate (which is a lot, most for unreasonable things), have had dreams of doing this, have fantasized about beating them with hard, blunt objects, or slicing them with knives,sometimes harming them with fire. But mostly I imagine doing it with my bare hands. I get all excited and pumped and get hot flashes and my heart...

I Need Advice on What to Do

I have been feeling a bit out of the loop lately. I constantly feel under a lot of pressure, and I don’t know how to cope properly. I ashamed to say that I have used “improper” ways of coping. I “coped” by relapsing (cutting), which I felt uncomfortable after a day or two because I hadn’t cut in a while. I “coped” by ignoring important and difficult tasks needed to be done and right...

Headaches have...

Is My Behavior Classifiable as a Tic Disorder?

From the : I’m 19 and have made noises or repetitive movements for as long as I can remember. But, they aren’t persistent. The longest “tic” I’ve had lasted from when I was at least 5 up to age 13. I used to flair my arms toward my shoulders before doing anything. The only reason I can think that made me stop was just because I grew out of it. Since then, they now...
