  1. I_Wish

    I feel nothing, and then too much.

    I've been laying in bed for almost 3 hours now, staring at the cieling. I don't know why I do this, why I just lay there doing nothing, thinking nothing, and feeling nothing.

    Surprise Eye-Contact Fear

    Just moved to a new place and an anxiety I've had since I was a child has returned. As I'm in my room, I'm always terrified that I'll look at my door and see a small face peering around the door. The biggest fear of this (I have a clear picture of this situation and to it as I type) is that...

    My unspecified condition is plaguing me

    There was no forum for "unspecified personality disorder", which is what I have ( F 60.8 ), so I hope I'm doing the right thing. Or maybe not. I'm really hostile towards everybody and everything and I feel extreme shame when I tell somebody off, but I just don't trust anybody. Please, don't...

    New Psychiatrist

    I have an appointment with my new doctor, next week. It kinda makes me nervous. New docs all have their own views, they might change my diagnosis, my treatment, or something. And I'm not saying they would be wrong to do any of that but it's scary and unknown when it's a new doctor.
