  • Hello how are u
    I need help with my condition,, someone please diagnose me!!!!!

    Initially I had a mild phobia for being unaware of things and also had an obsession for becoming super smart.I would pass my free time by trying to think of two things at once i.e. I would be listening to teacher in class at the same time I want to remember what I did yesterday,but don’t get me wrong I wasn’t multitasking I was trying to do those two things at exactly the same time. I would do this at most once a day in class. This habit continued until one fateful day I was doing it and then a spontaneous mental sensation(SMS) struck me. I was trying to do 2 think of two things at exactly the same time like as if I had two brains at that moment.

    So after that fateful moment, whenever I would try to think of anything e.g. I’m concentrating on a math number, a spontaneous mental sensation would strike my brain and disorganize my concentration.

    The spontaneous mental sensation strikes the part of the brain that is responsible for the action you want to do i.e. if I’m trying to do a math number,the front part of my brain is affected and thus I can’t do the number or if I’m trying to remember something that remembering part is affected.

    And whenever the SMS strikes me I feel as if i have two conscience that want to do two different that is actually me and the one that is acts because of that SMS.

    I think maybe the brain was trying to evolve in order for me to be aware of two things at once but didn’t end up the way I had hoped.

    For the spontaneous mental sensation to arise,an excuse must first trigger it. e.g. When I’m going to attempt a math number,I think what is the use of doing it if in the end I may get a wrong answer(This is the excuse).But when I was normal, it was normal for me to think of a negative outcome when I’m going to attempt something,only now it comes with a spontaneous mental sensation.

    And what triggers the SMS even more is the severity with which I want to use a particular brain action i.e. the more I want to use a brain action the more the SMS is triggered and viceversa.

    The spontaneous mental sensation is comprised of fear.But not the if I touch fire, I’ll get burned kind of fear.When I try to concentrate on something that SMS comes with fear that compels my brain to disrupt my concentration. And that disrupting of concentration is like a reflex action of the brain because of that fear. The SMS is like a coded message which my brain interprets to disrupt my concentration.

    The SMS is like a mental process of its own which occurs alongside me trying to concentrate. But the brain can’t think of two things at the same time thus making it hard as hell to concentrate.(it feels like ripping my head in two parts when I’m trying to concentrate)

    And that SMS cannot just arise but needs to be triggered by something. That something is an excuse thought for the SMS to erupt i.e. when I’m trying to do Math, but I think I may end up getting the wrong answer and so what will be the point in doing that number. That would be a normal thought but in my case,it triggers the SMS.

    This mental illness also manifests physically i.e. when I’m suspended upside down, I feel as if blood is not circulating properly through my whole brain. I feel blockages in some places. And those places are the parts affected which I cant use because of the SMS. It’s like the SMS is blocking the parts I want to use from working.

    The mental illness further went into affecting mental activities that occur involuntarily e.g. seeing. This happens because it is also a concentrating type of process.Whenever I’m trying to focus my eye on something the SMS attacks the part of the brain responsible for seeing and therefore I cant see clearly. To be more precise, I cant comprehend the pictures I see as fast as a normal person.

    What I have just described to u were just initial stages of this disorder, Over time it has manifested in many ways I cannot describe clearly.

    I hope whatever doctor finds this helps me fix my situation.

  • Here is a frequent psychological pattern observed by anxious people,

    which is explained in the chapter “Exhaustion.” These people:

    Try out the relaxation method and keep focus -> Get good results -> Want to keep up these results -> However, receive disappointing results on the next attempt -> Become anxious -> Feel the need to go back -> Try to relax

    in order to get the good results back Here, the wrong steps are marked in red.

    Whether it’s good or bad, let go of the idea that you can continuously maintain those results. Stop resisting against uncertainties. Don’t think that the results are purely your responsibility.

  • i grew up a very caring and kind person but some situations changed me its left me depressed and i lost a meaning i life i do even know wether im happy or im just pretending i cant care for people like i used too and i feel like kindness is a weakness

  • Major depression with psychosis
    Bipolar PTSD almost committed suicide yesterday. In the hospital now.
    If you were take a look at my life you’d think I have it all together but I don’t.

  • I just think that every person’s mind while working all the time gives you a lot of thoughts and in different people it is expected differently. This way we have a lot of perspectives a lot of thoughts from a lot of people. But to remeber this types of thoughts we name them with different names. And they become mental illnesses and disorders. And let me tell you that everyone has their own thoughts, then this means that every one has at least a mental illness or disorder. And don’t tell you have to prison them for their thoughts. I think this is not the right way to handle people minds. We just need to talk more with each-other, to be more honest and most important take control of our minds. Make peace with our minds. Meditate. Read some books. Welcome other thoughts and ideas on your mind. I know it’s hard, but at least try!❤

  • Its funny how you can make a video on mental disabilities, but if you say “mental disabilities” in a comment on a post about anything else they automatically flag your comment and remove it

  • Are you looking to take control of your body? If you are experiencing an weakened immune system due to a low count in white blood cells, from activities such as smoking, poor nutrition, alcohol, or simply lack of sleep. It’s not ever too late to take back over, with products that are rising on the market with non-addictive, and natural earthly properties… Wanna learn more check this site out here @

  • Hi,My father passed away on 25th april 2020 so here is my story.After his death for first few days i was shocked that why wasnt i feeling that sad eventhough he was the person i loved more than anyone else.I was still crying but tears were not coming naturally. So after 2 weeks of his passing i got really sick which i now came to know was typhoid. I have recovered from it now but i still dont feel 100% well. On muslim holiday of eid i told my mother i may have depression as this was my first eid without my dad i started feeling extra sad. She told me to cry as much as possible and i suddenly broke down so hard. I was always trying to avoid crying infront of any one. I would cry when i would be alone. I also hate it when someone cries infront of me for my father as it reminds me of him. I also have some educational issues. So my symptoms are i get scared of little things even lizards,My hearing ability has increased many folds. If i tray or a plate falls in the kitchen i get scared. My smelling ability has increased massively as there were many flowers on a table near me and it got unbearable as the smelling ability has increased too much. Lastly when ever i rub my hand over my head it feels like blood circulation is happening and brings a abnormal cooling affect in my head. I dont feel like leaving my room. I keep myself busy with games. Please help me. Their are 2 main causes of my stress i believe 1 is the study problem and 2nd is my fathers passing

  • Electroshock or better known as ECT being used for many conditions, and at leading facilities. No FDA testing of device associated or procedure to prove either safety or effectiveness. There is a current national product liability suit around the untested devices. California courts have proved brain injuries at a minimum from this. There are also medical malpractice firms interviewing as consent is fallible. Patients are showing damages on MRI, SPECT, EEG, VNG, neuro/cognitive testing etc. Used also on our children, Veterans, and women in pregnancy. This is purely electrical trauma, and this mechanism of trauma can evolve years out to include CTE, ALS, and ongoing cardiac issues as all systems impacted. There is a significant increase in suicide following this procedure. See ectjustice and Life After ECT. Please contact the DK law group in CA if you have had ECT and may be interested in potentially joining the current national product liability suit.

  • I have a friend he gets obssesed with people and than he start to make stories in his head and live and have a wierd enjoyment feeling after he does that can someone tell me what s this i have searched i found nothing.

  • I think I might have aspergers, but i’m not sure. I can’t tell if it is that or bi-polar. I have some of the social problems that autistic people would have sometimes, but I can still hang out with people and make connections. I am pretty smart, I currently have a 3.9 and im in my senior year of mechanical engineering. The main problem im having right now is no real direction in life. Also, I have never really been in a relationship for over a month, and Ive never had sex. Do i sound like I’m Autistic? I dont want to be, but if i am i am.

  • Schizophrenia is NOT a personality disorder. It’s a psychotic disorder on the spectrum of schizophrenia-related disorders which affects the way one perceives reality, psychosis being one of the central manifestations. Symptoms include but are not limited to positive/psychotic symptoms (hallucinations that can occur in all senses, delusions, disorganization of thought) and negative symptoms (social + anticipatory anhedonia, avolition, alogia, constricted/inappropriate affect), however, symptoms vary drastically among the population. One generally does not have the same combination of symptoms as another, and many common disorders share some defining symptoms, which makes it fairly difficult to diagnose and treat.

  • I suffer from social anxiety it’s really bad i can’t do anything and if people want me to go with them somewhere I have to give it everything I got to go ��

  • I have this friend that keeps “having her friend” which is I believe just of her imagination, and she kept telling me that “her freind” is not her imagination. Should she meet a doctor?

  • i’m in Pakistan and my grammar may not be the bestest (that was on purpose) but i l didn’t quite understand what you said regarding less than ideal hell such as Pakistan (and other countries). and why Pakistan in particular?

  • How do you expect anyone to believe an uneducated person..4264 million. Really. Not 4,264 billion. Why would it be in USD. If it can be estimate in USD, then this much was nearly spent. Stop cooking up this shit for YouTube viewers.

  • Having some qualities as an autist doesn’t mean that you aren’t sick. Actually that statement is quite ignorant and… autistic. Stephen Hawking was a genius but he still was sick as fuck. Being good at something doesn’t mean that you are not sick and I find this bullshit profoundly unethical. “Why should this autistic child be treated? He is not sick, he is special!” just WTF.

  • The only reason I’m watching this is to determine whether I really am not okay or just a manipulative person trying to get others attention. Both my parents agree that I am. I don’t know what to do.

  • My mental health was falling apart last year and this year i feel like quarantine made it worse… i feel like im stuck in my life rn and its terrible + i dont have the ability to ask for help like i have no one to talk to about how i feel and i cant go to a psychologist ( i would love to if i could )
    But rn my world is falling apart and i cant help it

  • “sleeping/eating patterns may have changed” > I haven’t slept “normally” since mom died this February… I always was a night owl but was asleep by sunrise, but now most times I’m not even crawling into bed until almost 9am and I frequently sleep in until mid-evening. I also haven’t eaten “normally” in almost the same, although I honestly think most of THAT is Covid related… I don’t even leave the house but a couple of times a week at most and I’ve been eating a lot of “crap food”… I am trying to clean up my diet though, but like I said kinda hard right now XD

    “unstable moods” > I’ve been having “mini breakdowns” on and off since February, and while they were starting to get under control they’re starting back up since my close friend and lover of 15 years died this week…

    “disconnection” > my response to extreme emotional stress is isolation, but it isn’t so much a thing of “not wanting to be around anyone” it’s more about not wanting to deal with things like “empathy” at a time that I want to just… “be”… like with mom, my older brother came down from Seattle and he frequently escaped to my house to get away from the “I’m sorry for your loss” stuff. I don’t go full recluse, though, and I still engage with friends and whatnot. I’m just glad they realize me wanting to play video games with them isn’t “avoidance” so much as I just want to do something normal in an abnormal circumstance. That said, when my depression does kick in (not sure if it’s chronic depression or bipolar) one trademark is that I start isolating myself from everyone except the very closest people (physically, I mean… like 2 friends of mine, or my dad, both live on opposite sides of me…I can’t “isolate” myself from them)

    “you feel down most of the time” > to a point… sometimes I feel like I could take on the world, and I go bananas with energy and motivation… other times, while I do tend towards OPTIMISM… on a personal level I sometimes feel as though I’m just a nexus for the negative energy around me…thinking that perhaps at least on a metaphysical level if I’m absorbing it at least nobody else is… I do tend to be self deprecating and I do tend to have a bit of an inferiority complex.

    “difficulty completing tasks” > if I slip into a depressed state I lose the ability to concentrate on the tasks I have yet to finish…can’t focus and can’t find the motivation to move to finish those tasks. Like right now I’ve put everything on hold although I know I have work that needs to be done… I just can’t bring myself to focus on anything other than my late friend’s life partner…

    I stopped talking to my girlfriend, I was never in the mood and I had no reason to ignore her, my actions came around and she befriended my ex friend and told her a bunch of stuff I said. I am being told by everyone I am in the wrong but I didn’t mean to hurt her; I’m just not going through the best time right now, I kept my feelings to myself because of previous reactions from me opening up, but now I actually have nobody to go to and I’m totally lost
