  1. Secondary Disorders
    Hello, I suffer from a disorder on the OCD spectrum, triggered by anxiety, called "Dermatillomania" (compulsive skin picking). I see a few people have mentioned it in their introductions, but my story is a little different. It's easier to view on YouTube or read about in my book, "FOREVER...
  2. Coping With Social Anxiety
    Right, let me start off by explaining my situation. I have severe OCD which I have had since I was about 12 (8 years), I suffer from SA (obviously) and I'm also beginning to show symptoms of ASPD (anti-social personality disorder) which is apparently linked to SA and also schizophrenia (although...

  8. Coping With Social Anxiety
    I've been dealing with social anxiety for years...since about 5th grade. But lately I've been realizing that something else has been going on all along, and I wonder if it's a very mild form of Tourette's Syndrome. I always knew there was something "off" about how I acted, but it was never...
  9. Secondary Disorders
    So I have had a lot of trouble putting a name to my specific type of Anxiety just because it is so specific. I don't get anxiety when it comes to being with people, in fact I am extremely outgoing. I don't have anxiety when it comes to being in front of a crowd or being the center of attention...
  10. Introductions and Welcomes
    Soo, for the past 3 years I've been suffering from chronic depression. I started going to a counselor about 2 months ago and in our last "session," he asked me if I would like to go see a physciatrist. I was pretty surprised, but then I thought about it and realized, hey, do I want to be...
