    Family Gets Mad When I Panic?

    Let me start off by saying that I suffer from a few different things. My main problems, however, are obsessive-compulsive disorder with hypochondria and panic disorder. One always leads to the other. If I'm worrying about my health, it's almost guaranteed I will have a panic attack. I always...

    Is This Unethical?

    I have a dilemma and I'm just wanting some objective opinions. My boyfriend Chris' parents live a few houses away from this rotten family. The dad is this Native alcoholic that's always in and out of jail. He married a white trash woman who is also an alcholic. They have three kids - two girls...

    Once in a Lifetime Opportunity?

    In May of 2009, I went to my first real concert. My boyfriend took me to see his favorite band (and by this time, I was extremely into them), Queensryche. The show was beyond amazing. It was so euphoric. I've never experienced anything like it before. Anyway, we recently found out that they are...

    Undeserving of Love and Encouragement.

    I was just wondering if anyone here ever feels undeserving of love, positive attention, encouragement, and all of those other wonderful things. I feel this way all the time. I have a very close friend, Jessica, that lives in Tennessee. We met online a few years ago. She came to visit me for a...

    Big Step Forward - Mom's Psychotic.

    So, I got my blood drawn today. It was a very random and spontaneous thing. I've been putting it off for quite some time. It scares me. My psychiatrist has been after me for ages to get it done. I really didn't want to. I fear the pain, the blood (I can't stand the sight of my own blood) and the...

    Choosing Not to Drink.

    I'm abnormally nervous when making threads on here, so I'm warning you that this one will suck. Majorly. Anyway, I was just wondering if there is anyone on here that chooses not to drink alcohol? I turned 21 in February, and a lot of people were pressuring me to drink. I didn't want to. The...

    Self-Test for Hypochondria.

    SELF-TEST FOR HYPOCHONDRIA I suffer from major hypochondria. I was wondering if anyone else here does? I'm not sure how accurate this test is. Especially since you can just calculate the answer on your own. But I thought it was interesting and I'd like to see other people's results. Thanks...

    Hi. I was just wondering if anyone else here suffers from hypochondria? It's one of my biggest problems. *EDIT*: Of course I missed the D in the title. I don't know how to change it and it's driving me insane!

    Getting Blood Drawn for the First Time.

    I've never had any labs or tests done on me. EVER. I saw my psychiatrist today, and she suggested I get some blood drawn by the nurse Shirley at the Counseling Center (where I go for my therapy). She wants to check all my blood levels and whatnot. Pretty much every patient has to do it so they...

    A Shitty Introduction.

    Hi. I'm not really sure what to put here. I'm a 20 year old female from Arizona. I've been diagnosed with OCD (with hypochondria), clinical depression, and panic disorder. I'd say that all of those go along with each other, hand-in-hand. If I'm obsessing over my health (OCD and hypochondria...
