  1. Have you considered a face to face therapy? Are you seeing a psychiatrist? If you are a doctor yourself I would think you have access to that, but i am not American so I don't know how it works. Best of luck to you too and I hope you get the best care you can for yourself.
  2. Well I tried to discuss my opinions on another forum and got treated with contempt and scorn. It seems like being myself gets me punished to utter psychological destruction by society. It just hurts so unbearably much. * Just to clarify, this post wasnt in reply to the ones above. Completely separate issue. I should have put it in a different thread. What happened above was i deleted the op then reinstated it. Sorry to create confusion. My thinking is quite nonlinear at the moment.
  3. I find it difficult to interact with people. One of the reasons is the villainisation narratives that people casually construct. I tend to automatically identify with the villainised party in any story so this tends to make all interactions feel morally persecutory. This is particularly bad on social media with old aquaintances from my home country. I have not spoken to many of them for many years but i used to see their stuff. Recently i unfollowed a bunch of people. I am once again thinking of shutting my facebook, although i use it for messaging my brother and sister so it is problematic. As to face to face, i have not had friends or romantic partner in many years, other than people i am effectively paying to talk to me i.e. therapist and language teacher. I maybe have a conversation with someone at work once a fortnight or so. I have been to a few work social gatherings but i always feel somewhat out of the conversation and again i feel like i identify more with the outgroup corresponding to whatever is being talked about, rather than the ingroup of the people talking.
  4. I did it. MMpI type thing, rorshash and facial recognition and stuff. Cost me a fortune and they kept promising to send me the written results but never did. The guy told me the results verbally but i was in shock and i dont remember. I would really like to know what they wrote about it but it was 10 years ago and on the other side of the world.
  5. I am doing psychodynamic psychotherapy. I have been doing it for two years now. The emphasis is on understanding ones own past. It is transference-based which means that the therapeutic relationship is central. I came to it by luck. The first therapist I saw was doing some kind of humanist talk therapy, which I found unhelpful for my needs and I felt that the guy didnt really understand me at all. Then I found my current therapist and I think she really is helping me a lot so far. As to not labeling people, I think that it is common amongst therapists in this part of the world. I know many people on this forum are from the USA where diagnosis are important for insurance purposes. But here things are a bit different. I wish you best of luck in finding an approach and a person who is suitable.
  6. Thanks for your reply. No I donĀ“t have bipolar diagnosis. I am not sure what the diagnosis are from people i have seen. I had a possible personality disorder diagnosis from the first psichiatrist i saw but then it seems to have been replaced with depression and anxiety. He sort of backtracked on it without explanation. To be honest at that time of my life i didnt know what was going on and didnt know what any of the labels were or have any trust in mental health people. My current therapist doesnt believe in labeling people. As you say I need to find something else to take my attention away. The best distraction would be something social but for me that is hard. I spend a lot of time online but almost none of it is social. This forum and the old chatroom were about the most social that i got, and even then i didnt use much. Normally i am extremely guarded in what i say. At the moment for some reason i am engaging in what for me is extreme amount of communication, and that is a bit risky to me because i am vulnerable to getting my feelings hurt by people, and then it causes a load of anxiety.
  7. True. Talking of the internet, I am currently in the middle of a debate on another forum (actually a politics forum) about issues related to said seven years of torment. And I said one or two angry things and everybody was attacking me. I am really struggling with having something which caused me incredible suffering raked over by unsympathetic people. On the one hand i could learn something, but it really shatters my peace of mind. My therapist advised me to stop debating on the internet. But i am having so much trouble staying away from that discussion, because if people are writing things about me, then i just have to know what they are saying. I tried to bring the conversation to a close. I hope i can put that behind me.
  8. Hello Mogli. It is a good song isnt it. Funny to see the words written, I had a lot of lyrics wrong in my head.
  9. Hello. I am sorry you are suffering so much. I have also projected hostile intentions onto people when i was having a breakdown, but it was quite a bit different to what you are describing, so i am afraid I cant say much of relevance. Regarding the accusations which have been made, i am not qualified or experienced enough to advise on that, but i hope you can get things resolved soon.
  10. That is nice. My therapist wants me to go out and meet people more. Today i drank a lot. PRobably not the best idea :-/ I have been alternating between feelings of anger and self reproach. Were they to bolame or was I? With me it is allor nothing. It just hurt so much to run up against a wall of people denying my reality. Saying that reminds me of the song "golden void". MAybe i should n0t have come off the meds. I just hate them so much. My career and future is rapidly disppearing. I have no ability to withstand interaction with other people. I feel doomed and cursed.
  11. Thanks amskray. I appreciate it. I could go for a swim later for some excercise. Unfortunately i dont have friends, only a few old friends i never see. But i did manage to talk on the phone with my therapist. I kind of ranted for about five minutes. My therapist is so good like that, she encourages me to be more authentic rather than pretending everything is OK:
  12. I dont see my therapist until Moday. But I was wondring about trying to seak to her today. I dont know if this is acceptable thing or not.
  13. Recently i have been obsessing over news and it has caused quite a bit of strife. There is so much conflict in the world. I dont know what to suggest I wish there was a machine to suck away anxiety. When i was a child i had fantasies about a syringe that would extract negative emotions instead of blood. I wish i had one of those.
