    Person I made in my head?

    Throughout the years, another person started to develop in my head. I think it all began when I was around 14 and I've realized their presence but didn't know what it was. When I'd be mad and angry, I'd start thinking about murder, robberies and bad things that I could do... but when I was 15, I...

    Voice hearing- yourself at different ages?

    Hi hope you are all ok.. Does anyone else hear voices of themselves at different ages? I believe when I experienced trauma my personality split. They argue with each other and some don't particularly like each other. I believe each has a different personality and psychological disorders. My...

    Connecting...

    I was diagnosed with a personality disorder in my teens that I don't have. I'm 40 now. At the time I was diagnosed, I did have symptoms, which went away completely within a month of the bitchy psychiatrist (who I only saw once) diagnosing me based on a difference between my version and the...

    Seeking out help for a dear friend

    Hello, I am writing this with my phone very late at night so please forgive me for any spelling mistakes. I'll get straight to the point. A friend of mine suffers from multiple personality disorder, and as someone who isn't very educated on this topic I want to know if what I have been doing (as...

    feels like i have no 'true' personality, everything feels performative

    I never feel like I have any sort of true personality. Whenever others are around, I run on this form of auto-pilot for whatever seems to work best for that situation. I feel like when I am in that auto-pilot, Im not in control of who I am and what I want to truely say or do. I dont get spaced...

    Hi. Such difficulty in getting a diagnosis.

    Hiya. I'm very frustrated in my inability to speak to someone who can actually diagnose me. I'm sure I've had an underlying mental health condition for over a decade that hasn't been diagnosed, and I've tried to pretend it's imagined or that I can deal with it. I can't any longer. Underneath...

    A little weary

    For my whole life I have had issues that I can never talk about with anyone in my life. Only recently have I actually learned the name of my condition from a therapist, and diagnosed by a psychiatrist. I have an extremely hard time making meaningful connections with others. There really is...

    Avoidant Personality Disorder

    Anyone else developed an avoidant personality disorder? I have never been officially diagnozed, but I'm convinced that's what's wrong. I always knew I had social anxiety, but I also knew there was more to it than that. I suspect that shame lies at the heart of all this, and that the shame feeds...

    I need help and answers. My condition is effecting me. I need input

    Where do I begin. I will begin by saying that posting this is a big thing for me to do, given that I tend to be narcissistic. That being said, I will begin. Last year I saw a psychiatrist because my parents believed me to be depressed and angry. During my sessions, my psychiatrist prescribed...

    too labeled

    I'm fed up . I feel like due to forensic diagnosis my anxiety, paranoia and depression get overlooked ((irony here is that two of my diagnosis are paranoid PD and borderline PD)) They always focus on my antisocial PD and the fact I scored 31 on my PCL-R examination , my narcissistic PD, and my...

    I could be BPD and I have some recovery questions...

    Over the past year or so I have noticed a decline in my mental health and fear it could be a personality disorder. My mum suffers with BPD and I do feel as though I meet the criteria. My GP has confirmed that I am displaying some classic signs of BPD but I am currently sitting pretty on an NHS...
