    Frowning and dirty looks

    So I tend to have very thought-reflective face. And get bad intrusive thoughts sometimes, or facially react in an arrogant or judgmental way to whatever people say or do, people seem to notice it and are not impressed which makes it harder to maintain good relationships. Can't control it. I...

    The lack of self respect as an affliction

    Another item from the Venerable Thubten Chodron’s lectures on the minor afflictions, the one I was reading this morning was about the lack of self-respect. It too made a lot of sense to me, as something that I have noticed becoming an issue lately. The reason why lack of self respect is an...

    Heightened empathy or lack of?

    I was just doing some Google research into the effect of Bipolar on empathy. It yielded some wildly divergent results. Here is a blog post that mirrors my own experience. I'm intensely sensitive to the feelings of others, to the point that I will allow myself to be walked on. However I...

    Need help to overcome this

    I am a college student, male, in my twenties. In puberty developed SA. I would say severe. I was always shy and maybe introverted, but before puberty I was reasonably happy with my life and myself. Had friends, loved to do things such as play games (too much), and much more. This is where I am...

    Has anyone tried online therapy services?

    My girlfriend suffers from BPD and her insurance isn't so great. There are also very few specialized therapists in our area that offer the type of therapy we want (DBT and CBT). I read a review about a company called BetterHelp. It seems really affordable and has a free trial period, it would...
