What is the closest way to diagnose or self diagnose besides that o seeing an actual medical professional...? As of right now I refuse to see any form of doctor and i doubt they would get anything out of me.

Is it possible to have a literal mental block tht even if you wanted to express yourself you couldn't? I don't want to speak of my past anymore than i have, but when i do to a friend every time it literally takes me hours to formulate a sentence and i either stumble over it or it for some odd reason gets caught in my throat. Right as im about to speak its like the air gets taken out of me like a punch in the solar plexus...

hey yes it is... iv been exactly in your position right now and its awfully frustrating. i tend to become numb inside out and cant spill any words out your not alone i promise... its normall for us unfortantly have you ever been offered or given an explimation about what exactly your exsperiancing is called?? as i was told that mine is either 2 things its my bodys way of protecting its self or secondly its anxiaty stopping me from exspressin also i would agree that depression kinda dampens down my ability to speak most of my time its kinda like a 'voice' in my mind saying na dot bother speaking they dont care or 'its not important' grr i get annoyed... hugs keep trying is all i can say i still am xxx

I generally am numb, been this way for years. Truthfully it sucks at some points but i like it. I also probably just have grown accustomed to it. I know I suffer from some sort of depression/mood disorder. Thats a fact though of course i havent been fully diagnosed. I also am pretty much completely positive i am afflicted by ptsd, though im curious about BPD, but im no psychiatrist and i have more trust issues than a paranoid kingpin. *shrugs* and so i ramble..
