you may want to talk to a doctor about that one--we cannot prescribe meds

It's really not a good idea to ask us to recommend meds here online; is there a reason you can't talk to your doctor about it?

Crazy Re: Welcome to the Personality Place

Hi I'm a new member.
Lots and lots to say, but for now, I have a burning question.
Why do I always create tension/problems with work colleagues and have felt different all my life?
Had first breakdown last year, following conflict at work.
Since then have been searching for reasons and have tried therapy, but get irritated with it.

Any thoughts welcome

Can you start a forum for nonspecific personality disorders?

Hi al
I ameturning to the forums due to unresolved issues.
I am seeking some thoughts/views regarding my likelong habit of alienating myself from others, nice and not so nice people alike!
I have obsessive thoughts and paranoia when I perceive slights and imagined rejection -cant 'deal with the idea. This is at work and with friends, although haven't got many now.
I really dislike myself in all areas, althoughhave flashes of feeling happy, but these are brief as a downer is always close, after say, an argument, issue at home which can be fairly minor, and have had a breakdown in thepast due to work issue with colleagues.
This is sadly, not a new issue for me, and even as achild remember having friendship issues. My mum never approved of my friends though, and would be critical of them to me.
Anyway, I am wondering why this happens. I have sought therapy before but got scared when she gave me an easter egg!😯(at easter).,and never went back.
I freak out when others are too kind or get too close.
I feel like I nevet fit in and want to, but easily get irritated or hurt.
What to do?
😕

Welcome, spacegeek. I can definitely relate to your issues. Don't have any answers, still after much therapy, don't really know what to do myself. It seems to me like personality issues are the great unresolved mystery in the mental health care field. Any ideas about what might help you?

Thank you Here today.
I don't know really what would help, but I think having an explanation would help.
I'm not experiencing extreme sress right now so its difficult to say, as when I do,
the same old stuff comes up.
😞
