anyone here have this? I was reading about it and I check every single symptom. How serious is this? is a real disorder or just a meme?
although it's recognized by mental disorders books. I think it has something to do with my upbringing and the role I took within my family if that makes any sense. Anyway is this shit really bad like I think it is? its affecting my life a lot lately
"Personality disorders" are not medical disorders. They're bullshit classifications that can fit almost every single member of the population. They were invented in the 70s by pharmaceutical companies to try to expand their market.
Not even trolling.
I've been making great progress recently. 2 days ago I got my first haircut in a year. Yesterday I went to Panera by myself and got some coffee and a pastry and ate it IN THE RESTAURANT.
I had it for years and then fixed it with exposure therapy.
Start doing exposure NOW. Unless you are so fucking bad that you have shrieking fits, but I was so bad I couldn't go to the store without having panic attacks and mulling over how much of a loser I was for months afterward.
If you have it anywhere near as bad as I had it, you're basically going to waste years of your life for no reason and turn yourself into more of a weirdo than you already are.
Because you don't need meds for it you retard. Meds will treat the physical symptoms but won't do anything to fix the actual cause of it. R
Literally everybody avoids situations that make them uncomfortable. If socializing makes you uncomfortable, you'll avoid it. That doesn't mean you have a disorder, it means you're a rational human being who's projecting grave consequence son ordinarily benign scenarios due to your own misguided opinions and beliefs about yourself.
Guess how you get over it? By doing what makes you uncomfortable.
what did you doctor advised you to do?
cause its a funny face
Im not sure about that anon, its not just not wanting to go out. it goes as far as hypersensitivity to rejection. I've got chest pain before when I felt reject by an online friend whom I barely know, thats why I said it must have something to do with upbringing
you should've read the post I've replied to mate
and I agree with you but things are bit more complicated
you wouldn't have guessed that I have it irl
Exposure might give you the skills what to do, but changing how you feel and what you think is different matter
My last reply I'm going to Uni now
