    Afraid I am annoying people

    I have a lot of social anxiety. But it is a little different from the idea of social anxiety. When people don't reply to my emails I feel like I have done something wrong, that I will be scolded, that someone is going to yell at me. In the past, i was afraid I was going to be rejected...

    Afraid to go to Doctor for Treatment of Self-inflicted Injury

    Hello, I have a self-inflicted wound that is not healing even though it has been over 3 weeks. I am afraid that it might be infected, but I am afraid to go to the local walk-in clinic/ urgent care for treatment because it is obviously self-inflicted and is in close proximity to many other...

    Hi everyone! I’m new here

    I have Anthropo-phobia, a very rare and debilitating disorder where you experience the constant presence of elevated fear. For example I know I’m sitting here, safe at home, typing this message to you. But I don’t feel safe at all; rather, I’m feeling afraid, afraid of: “People.” People with...

    Depression Getting Worse

    It was helping to have my lists of tasks, but then that went by the wayside too. I don't know why it's so bad now. It hasn't been this bad in a long time. I suppose it's linked to my insomnia, which is getting worse and worse. And there is a little girl at work who is terribly afraid of me...

    How do I get over my severe phobia of dogs?

    I am a dog owner myself and I love dogs, but I am scared of dogs I don't know, especially large dogs. This all stems from being bitten by another dog in our family several times. (to the point where I needed stitches.) Because of this I ended up moving out of their home. Even though I am in a...

    Angry Voices

    I hear angry voices all the time accusing me of being stupid and worthless. Their anger is filled with hate. Have heard them most of my life. Long ago, I use to wander the hills alone and listen to the voices whisper to me, it was pleasant, was not afraid. I dared not tell my psychiatrist, as...
