Nah, man. Don't feel bad. It's not an accident either. You need to get that out somewhere. It's a psych forum, dude. Kind of the point, you know? And if you're having issues with proper psychotherapy at the frequency you need it, you've gotta have an outlet somewhere.

Don't feel ashamed or ridiculous. I do the same s--t though. Feel like a dumbass when I end up talking about things, don't want to let people on, but then you don't say anything, and then you don't have any control because it just falls out of your mouth.

"Mind gone rogue." I like that.

I also had a friend describe it like this once: "It's frustrating when all you want is help because life feels like everything falling apart around you in some kind of f--ked up mess that primal gods of chaos themselves couldn't even imagine..."

Like I said, shoot me a DM sometime, dude. I don't want you doing the same thing I do. Not good for your psyche. At all. I know you're working on it, but do what you can outside of those two sessions a month you do get. Especially when you've got a community here that understands this BS.

In answer to one of your questions (I'm not well-versed on all the new diagnosis stuff since I was diagnosed with conversion disorder 8 yrs ago and therapy has helped with most of my issues pertaining to this disorder), no, it's not just the classic form of depression causing pain and although many people suffering from Depression experience pain, it is usually described as fatigue or all over generalized muscle pain. So yes, given your pain symptoms a somatization disorder makes a lot of sense. Keep in mind one diagnosis often does not account for all symptoms, so although the pain would be attributed to somatization, dissociation or other mental health concerns may be attributed to depression or bipolar or anxiety disorders etc. Hope that helps some/makes sense.
