View Full Version : Any mental "abnormalities"?

I picked the subject from another forum, PUK, and I thought I'd post it here since I think it's an interesting topic.

Please note that the definition of being "normal" is highly arbitrary, and subject to change over time. Therefore, this thread does not aim to discuss mental and psychological normality. However, you can post whatever you think characterizes your mentality in such a way that you are different from others in your social network or whatever is negatively impacting you. As an example, I'll start with myself:

I believe I have serious mental issues. I have not been diagnosed before, and I don't think I'll ever go to a psychiatrist for that; mainly because it's so freaking' expensive.

I think I have failure issues; anything that is not perfect is considered failure to me. Getting 98% in school is failure. Being the second highest grade in my class or school is failure. Although this is a fairly normal vision of an idealist, I took it way too far in all horizons.

I seem to have severe depression, and I'm constantly confused, headaches, and I feel lost. I keep wishing I had a decent gf (which is why I'm meeting new girls). Although she is kind and faithful, she's very dull, and she doesn't provide me any attention. That might not be a clinically mental disorder, but it's definitely not healthy.

Well... I'm paranoid, social phobic to the point if I'm around too many people I get sick, low self esteem, I daydream too much(I have to tell myself to pay attention), feeling watched even though I'm alone, always a bit worried and nervous, and basically I always feel like I'm different. Yet, I believe I'm average in every way. Oh, and I'm always confused. There is other things. But, I have trouble putting things to words.

I have EXACTLY the same issues ontop of what I've already mentioned. I hate the fact that excessive daydreaming is a part of my routine because it might ultimately lead to severe disappointment.

I'm normally finding myself talking to myself as a strange habit. I'm sometimes quite depressed even going as far of thinking of suicide. I also daydream a bit as well and also seem to do other things in lessons...

by abnormalty, i assume anything that you might consiter weird.

There is a word for this,
but-
I have sort of a "deja vu" thing going on.
Sometimes, when I sleep, I get pictures of almost anything,
sometimes, it's longer than one second, and continues for perhaps a few moments.

Then, at one point in time, It happens.
and I see it exactly how I saw it sleeping.

It totally throws my focus off though, and makes me feel like i'm in some sort of confusion.

Just recently, I found out that I got it through genes.

I don't know if this would be considered a "mental abnormality" or not, but I used to/still have pretty bad social anxiety. Like, I'd hate going into stores when I was out with family members, or going to shop for clothes, or anything like that. I'm slightly better now,I don't mind going out as much, but I'm still not like most people, I suppose. When I was at Anime North, with friends, it wasn't as bad, but since most of the time I'm not around people like that... yeah :[

Oh yeah.
This is the thread for me.

Here's the list:
ADHD
Depression
Anxiety
OCD

I have some issues...

EDIT: Oh yeah, I can also predict things and sometimes read people's minds.
Like songs that play on the radio, answers to multiple choice questions, so on so forth.
Once, I had a dream of a day at school, and everything that happened in that dream happened that day.
Because of this, my friend calls me Liza. :/

Yeah, I've got issues. I know I have issues. But I have very good self-control and all of what I'm about to list is all internal stuff, so...

I think about death and suicide too much. :/ That may just be pessimism, or maybe I'm just a sadist. Part of me isn't surprised though, since I've always had some depression and anger issues and I know I went through some serious crap at random points of my life...particularly my early to mid childhood.

I'm also always daydreaming. Whether it's about anime, my life, death, or whatever else I always seem to be daydreaming; especially when someone is talking to me. I think I inherited that trait from my mother though, only to a lesser extent.

I cannot be around too many people. Unfortunately for me I live in the most crowded city EVER, and I'm claustrophobic. Whenever I'm cramped in an elevator with too many people or waiting in a line with too many people (which happens...daily) makes me want to set fire to a small child...or just run. Run very fast and away from them.

Paranoia. Ah, paranoia. Someone is going to sneak into my apartment at midnight, shoot my parents in their sleep and bash my skull against the wall until I collapse then pop bullets straight through my brain. Someone is going to push me into the train tracks while I'm not looking and I'll either die by train accident or be electrocuted to death. I think you get the idea.

I sometimes experience deja-vu. I'll dream of something (and I'll KNOW I dreamt it) and sometime later the exact same scene will play itself over. Like once when I was 9 I had a dream where I wrote the number '6001' on a piece of paper for Saturday tutoring. Guess what I'm doing two years later. :/ Rarely the deja-vu will happen while I daydream; it's almost always at night.
Also, every single dream I have relates to what will happen to me the next day to some extent. Does this happen to anyone else?

So yeah. Lots of problems in thar.
My mom calls it a side effect of 'thinking too much'.

I'm currently taking 20mgs of Prozac for my depression! :D
Yeah... ^^; I actually got taken away from my home once because my mom and I got into a huge argument, and I threatened to commit suicide. They got me a therapist and a psychologist, and more pills. LOLYAY :D

But recently I've become so much more anxious, and angry. I'm going to try working it out in psychotherapy, but if that doesn't work, I get MOAR PILLS!

Also, on a less depressing note, I don't know why, but I am socially inept. I have no idea what to say around people. I'm so bad. Rofl. I like hanging out with people, but I always feel awkward unless I'm hyped up on sugar.
I also seem to have damaged that part of my brain that stops you before you say something stupid, your inhibitions. I will say really inappropriate things and not care what people say. I don't say mean things, just... things that make people feel awkward, I guess. Sometimes I do it just to bug certain friends, but sometimes I can't help it.

LOLWell, there's the gateway to my messed up mind :D

I've got some pretty insane paranoia thing going on. I'm always worrying that someone, somewhere is talking behind my back. I don't even know why this would worry me, as I usually don't care what other people think about me. And it's not even what they're saying about me. It's the fact that they're saying something; it just makes my feel really self conscious.

Whatever, completely irrational I suppose.

I kinda have memory problems. For example I don't know the times tables even though I remembered 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. But can't remember them now.

Idiot!
November 5th, 2008, 11:59 PM
I believe I am antisocial. I hate humans in general. Everyday I see new reasons to hate them. So far, I see only one (very lame) reason to love them.

I go crazy at the word smart or any synonyms of it if it is directed at me. Somehow I hate being called smart. The problem is....... everyone IRL think that I am smart. That includes (but not limited to) my friends, my family, my classmates, my teachers, perfect strangers and also my enemies.

Well I don't know if this counts, I sometimes have this thing where the room looks like it's getting bigger and I see random colours appear, always blue red and green and it gives me a headache. I've only had it severely a few times where the room looked like it was massive and the ceiling (which is usually white) looked like it was red and green, I felt like a mouse compared to it and I nearly fainted but I get a minor one quite alot; I've had it for as long as I can remember and I don't have a clue what it is.

Same thing really. but sometimes i see events one month before. like yeasterday i had this event i saw but in my dreams i was without cruches and a semi-broken knee. Could it be that destiny and fate is controlled by you but the events in your life are not? Wow thats strange to think about really.

Mhh, well, I'm good in school, able to learn languages very fast. After a few weeks of learning french, I'm able to write texts in this langauge.
Ah yeah, I feel no pain, except for awful strong pains, like to get a nail in your hand, that drills through the hand. These are pains I feel, but not as really pain, but I feel that something is wrong.

Well, I am quiet and I have this "boring personality". Everyone seems to ignore me even in this forum. And I am gullible, I believe on the most unbelievable things like God. In my positive mentality, I can easily learn things, I am very calm even in a brink of disaster, and mostly I help other people with their "social problems".

That's what I used to take, but then it just made me feel worse...
Now I'm on zoloft (I think that's how you spell it).

My friends typically consider me 'very ADD,' yet when it comes to my family, I seem the most normal.

My dad's a friggin genius when it comes to... like... everything, and my mom's pretty much the same way, so I really have no choice when it comes to being able to learn / do things. Don't know if that's technically an 'abnormality,' but whatever.

Anyway, I do believe that I'm bipolar... not really much to explain about it any further.

Other than all that, I'm fairly normal, I guess.

I tend to "philosoph" a lot. For that reason, I also question myself on everything I do. I try to make my future step-by-step years before it happens. That sort of thing.

I don't believe that's abnormal. I think that's very smart and wise. I've just started doing that.

I have Body Dysmorphic Disorder.
Or however you spell that. BDD.
And depression.
Andd... I like to hurt myself but I'm NOT emo or suicidal. xD; It used to be really bad... biting my wrists, cutting, and gagging.
I'm doing better now though.
Plus, I have some thing... I don't remember the name...
You take conversations that you have had with someone and play them over and over and over and over and over again in your mind. You think about what you could've said different, how they would've reacted, etc.

I think I'm mentally ill in about 4 ways. \o/

Ahh, I know what you mean. Several times in the last few years, I've dreamt of something totally random and then it actually happens; either exactly the way I dreamt it or pretty close. :\


Paranoia. Ah, paranoia. Someone is going to sneak into my apartment at midnight, shoot my parents in their sleep and bash my skull against the wall until I collapse then pop bullets straight through my brain. Someone is going to push me into the train tracks while I'm not looking and I'll either die by train accident or be electrocuted to death. I think you get the idea.


I kinda had/have the same problem. When I was younger and I saw something scary or something that could kill kill me, I couldn't stop thinking about it no matter how hard I tried!! Unless something completly distracted me.

You take conversations that you have had with someone and play them over and over and over and over and over again in your mind. You think about what you could've said different, how they would've reacted, etc.


Yeah, I do that too. Which is kinda dumb because it's not like I can change the past.

This is the same problem that I had. I used to think of something and that thing should get into my mind. And after sometime or days that thing should be real. That was kind of weird. This thing happened even with my brother.

I've never fallen in love, laulz.

Anyway it's normal feeling you're different, 'cause you're most teenagers there and lots of teenager wonder if they are "normal" or not.

For dreaming and then have a feeling of déjà vu it's because you just don't dream it, but when you see it your brain mistakes and says "I've dreamt it", then because it's often things that don't matter in your life (for example seeing a red pich-up I don't know) doesn't correct this little error. It's the most rational explanation I can give for this.

meh, does it say enough if I say that I have PDD-NOS? no? are you joking? you really want to know more? damn.

well, I'm heavily paranoid. well, that's what I think of myself, seeing as how alone I am. just 1 or 2 friends. and I'm also very antisocial, I seriously can't talk to someone in real life. I get somehow very shy at that moment, and mostly say very short things, mainly "yes" or "no". worst thing that I even get red sometimes, and then I get even more shy. on the internet on the other hand, I can speak freely about everything (like now), since I know that no one knows me and that I never will met him/her. and if we did, we would never know that we know each other.
and I always either sleep (at day, litterally) or daydream. including at school. then I dream or think about everything, about the past, present and future. like I'm looking through time. weirdest thing is, even though I sleep or daydream, I seem to hear and memorize the important things around me. like at school, I don't hear what the teacher is telling the class when I sleep or daydream, but after the lesson, I can recall what the teacher told and teached us.
the weirdest but best thing is that I don't have to learn much. I just have to read and learn everything a few times, then I memorize it forever. I can't tell them from scratch, like now, but as soon as I get a test, I can recall everything and get a high score. I don't want to sound like a genuis or something, but last year, I got through my secondary school exams with flying colors. and I haven't learned anything. I just sat down and waited for my exams, and I got through them easly. everyone says the exams are weird, but I find them easy.

oh, and the real paranoid part, I always have the feeling that there's someone or something close by. both when there's a lot people like in a busy street (and no, it's not the people I feel, but truly something else than those people) and when there's no one. I've learned to live with it, it's way too familiar now... like I know it for years....

Where do I start...?
-Paranoia. That feeling of something behind you, watching, waiting for you to let your guard down for just the second it would take to attack you...
-Delusional parasitosis. Exactly what it says. Delusions of parasites crawling on or underneath your skin.
-Depression. Used to self-mutilate. Have an x-shaped burn-scar on my hand because of it, along with miscellaneous cut- and eraser burn- scars
-Low self-esteem. Nothing I do is ever good enough. Even for my family. ;w;
-Antisocial. I hate people. People, in general, are dumb, conceited, and have a tendency to insult people for the stupidest things.
-Dual-personality disorder. Well, kind of. Depends on what you believe in. My [ahem...children might be reading this] of a father decided to punch my mom in the stomach while she was eight months pregnant. Killed my twin sister. Now, I seem to hear her talking to me a lot.
