    Anger? Self concious people are judging me.

    Oftentimes when I'm biking to or from work I worry that people think I'm going too slow because I'm out of shape or they're looking at and judging my body. I then get really angry and frustrated and then flustered. Does anybody else experience this?

    I call "NO MORE BS"

    I will not be talked down to anymore by anyone! I will not be lectured with the goal of others wanting me to feel worse than I already feel! I will not be notified at 4AM in the morning and be "Berated" by anyone!!! I make no justifications when I say I do things I am not proud of, but that...

    People cannot read minds or assume. When I interact with someone much of my interaction is foolishly influenced by my emotions more than my logical reasoning. I struggle to balance emotion with logic. It is due to this habit and struggle that I judge, assume, and stereotype. I feel bad and am...

    Replacing one bad thing with another

    When I was younger (up to my late thirties) I was underweight, skinny if you like, and that was the demon that followed me everywhere (people are looking at me, judging me, laughing at me, etc). Now, I'm 49 and OVERweight, but it's the same thoughts every day - people are looking at me, judging...

    Your creators don't judge you.

    They wanted you all to be this way, they're evil. They lie and tell people that their makers, their oh so loving makers, judge them as right or wrong. Nope, in reality they made us this way and want us to think such things for control, manipulations, and snuffing people out at will. If you...

    Faking DID?

    I have done a lot of reading,have browsed many forums(not talking about this place though) and it is hard for me to believe there are truly as many people with DID that claim they have it. Something I have noticed is the vast amount of people that make it seem/sound like DID is a fun or cool...

    Is this anxiety?

    I've always been a bit self conscious and always want to be perceived more than I am. I find myself lying about things to people because I don't want them to think less of me. I don't have many real mates. When I imagine my life in a few years I think its going to be the best, im going to be...

    Always hiding and avoiding people, sick of it !!

    I never used to be like this, but since I had a melt down and changed a lot. I find I've not only cut people out of my life but I avoid going out because I don't want to bump into them. People are my worst nightmare. Finding it so hard to cope with, I have panic attacks about it. I feel people...

    I'm very concious of how I look to other people.

    If I'm having a bad day and a bit moody, and not myself, I feel everyone hates me and is judging me. Like I'm not allowed to have a bad day. For example if I say goodbye before the weekend to my friends I go home and think how I came across bad and moody and what they think of me now, and they...

    hello i'm a newbee

    Hi I'm Craven Reese, what to say about myself, loving MacDonald's and free WiFi as it allows me to do this. I'm being haunted from my past, a past which I thought was well behind me. Now I see the person who abused me in more ways than one she was family. I escaped that by running away but...
