    Feeling threatened by noises being made by my brother and dad

    I feel threatened sometimes by this. An example would be closing cabinets or drawers in the kitchen. Or it could be getting a plate out, pushing in a chair, closing bedroom doors, etc. But I only feel this way if my brother or dad make those noises. If my mom does, I don't feel threatened...

    Are Narcissists Born Not Made? Article.

    There’s a saying that some artists or masterful musicians and craftsmen are “born, not made.” In some ways, our DNA imprints much of our future personalities and talents into our human form, but some paths that are followed are created by us, not born into us. Narcissism is one of those traits...

    A man in my dream killed three children and then threatened to kill me. Should I call the police?

    A man in my dream killed three children and then threatened to kill me. Should I call the police? Injuries obtained in dreams translate to 'real' life also (people who dream about freezing can get hypothermia and pneumonia, while people who dream about being burned, get burn wounds appear on...

    Oh dear!

    Why are these panic attacks annoying me? I'm not a caveman or being threatened by bears or lions. Why does a trip to the shops terrify me? Bloody hell it's getting boring!
