Hello everyone. I registered here seeking for some help about my condition.
What is Your advice, where can I post new thread about my condition and symptoms, for others to know what is possibly wrong with me.
Thanks

I'm brand new - just registered earlier today but I see that no one has responded so I thought I would. You can post it here. Talk about your condition and symptoms and people can help guide you to which forum would be most helpful. But only a psychiatrist or psychologist will be diagnosing you. I'm assuming you do not have a diagnosis, presently?

Another option is you could look over all the different forums and see which one you resonate with the most. Then start posting in that one.

Thanks Keesha. I really had no idea if I gave proper advice. As I said, I'm as new as he is! I worried that I might have said the wrong thing, so thank you for affirming that!

I have strange problem. I always feel fear and tension, as I am aftaid that someone can use my personal material things, that I like and I need very much. For example, those things are my car, computer, mobile phone...
Another, more intensive fear is when I think what if I give those things to other people (even if I don't want), like maybe I should give it and like maybe I want to give it to someone. That thoughts make me more anxiety. Then I constantly convincing myself that I didn't wanted to do such things.
Those people in my opsessions are usually bad people with low moral etc...

I constantly check if car is locked, mark things to know if someone touched them....I can not live normaly, drive where I want, go where I want. Because, I am afraid to trigger my thoughts and just trying to avoid such risky situations.
Now I cannot enjoy in things I love to do, my feel for happines is lost. I am anxious and depressed

I have a few questions:
1. are these real-life people that you actually know? Or, are they people in your mind? (Are they real or imaginary?)
2. are these people asking you to use your things? Or, are you just fearing that they *might* use them without your knowledge?
3. have you talked to anyone about this before? Or, is this your first time?
4. have you ever been diagnosed with a specific psychiatric disorder?
5. have you ever been on medications? If so, which ones?

1. They are real people

2. They don't ask me to use my things. I have fear that they might use it without my permission. And, I have fear that I can give it to them.

3. I was on therapy when I was 15. Then after zoloft I was good for years. But symptoms are different know. Maybe same nature of symptoms, but different.

4. Diagnosed depression at that time

5. Antidepressants like Zoloft, Paroxetine, Venlafaxine...

Thanks for the info. That helps a bit. Has any doc or therapist ever suggested anything other than depression?

I am hoping that you can think about the symptoms you are describing and try to identify what category they fit into. The reason I'm saying that is because we can't diagnose and also because it's good for you to come to your own conclusions.

Have you thought about browsing through some other forums? There's one specifically I'm thinking of, but again, that needs to be your call. I'd recommend looking at all the available forums and see which title (diagnosis) fits you the best. The more CLEAR about your SYMPTOMS you can be, the more you will be able to see what forum best fits. I really hope that helps!
