Only need the tittle: "Attention Whore Disorder"

Make a real question. This isn't WebMD.

Are you poor? If not, then go see a psychologist. All 4chan will give you is false knowledge.

I kind of get it. There's a strong chance i have DID. Go see a therapist. I didn't know i had it, but i did something that basically revealed who i really was.

I didn't put on costumes or lie. I was actually really honest but i just have had so much go on in life that different people see different sides to me.

Long story short. I did something. People knew but i didn't. I was still unaware of it, as most people who through that are. The way people looked at me....I couldn't interpret it.

It basically induced a manic episode and i really fucked up my life. Basically crippled myself. I can't even explain how deep and dark a hole i have fallen into but i'm climbing back out.

Get off of here. What you have needs to be talked to with a proffessional and a good one. Even after everything that happened, i still haven''t been diagnosed. Its retarded. But maybe if i went earlier. At least i would have stood a chance.

There is a specific kind of rush you can get from what you do but fucking around with the ID,ego, and superego can really screw you up man. Trust me. Get off of here. And shop around. Keep seeing different ones till one can really get you.

>Can someone diagnose my personality disorder?

No. Your symptoms don't match any of the DSM criteria for any of the personality disorders. Having a personality disorder isn't about having a set of quirks it's about being functionally impaired. Unless these things are causing you so much distress that you are having problems with social life, work, or school then I doubt you have a "personality disorder". Plus you're self aware of this and it doesn't seem like it bothers you?

If it is an issue you should probably see a psychologist.

I appreciate your advice and will do my best to see a therapist. Good luck to you.

I only work temporary jobs and my social life is short lived and "fake" because I move on to a new self. And yes I'm self aware when I'm alone but I know talking to a therapist would be difficult because I'd just lie about my situation. I don't even think I could bring myself to email a therapist ahead of time about my condition. I feel like I can only be "myself" alone or online anonymously

>Can someone diagnose my personality disorder?

A medical professional. If you seriously feel you have a personality disorder, schedule and appointment with your doctor

I don't feel capable of that. Hence why I ask anonymously

Ye obvs you have issues "letting people in" but a therapist job is working with that.

Protip though: If you start having sessions with a therapist and don't think it's going to go anywhere, let them know and switch to some one else. I've wasted plenty of time never getting anything done because I stuck with the wrong person.
