    I've been reading up on a bit of the nonsense in diagnosing.....which got me to wondering, where I fit into those "lables".

    It seems I fit into a few....

    I've been depressed for 5years now, I can tell you I 100% have depression of some form.

    But I've been noticing things about myself.... such as the way I talk in monotone, how I laugh when I see car accidents and massive tragedy. How I could care less how you really feel today. I cant make small talk.... I cant talk about my problems.

    I constantly lie...if/when I do talk, its a lie to cover my own ass or get what I want...lmao.. I dont even "love" my family... I'm somewhat considering mass-murder...though I'm trying to not let it get to that.

    how I have to force myself to make eye contact.....

    I find myself yelling at myself....I dont hear voices....

    I may be delusional....I dont think people are real, sometimes to the point of thinking people are secretly playing some sort of a joke on me, that life is some sort of "punk'd" show..lol.

    I noticed that I am unable to drive.. I dont have a license yet but I cant get one anyways. While vacationing with my parents I noticed that I cant keep attention and I frequently, if not most of the time zone out... when I get back to the "real world" I realize I while zoning out, I told myself to drive over a mountain or into another vehicle.

    I've got some not-so-common views to this thing you call "reality....which I'd rather not go into now (though I have made posts about it)

    Thats about it for now... lemme know what you think, I know none of you can diagnose but going to a real doctor is the last option. I just want an outside opinion or a few......

    thanks

    We could sit here and guess all day at disorders but it doesn’t mean they would be right. I have an idea of a diagnosis but it doesn't mean it's right. Only a psychologist or psychiatrist could really tell you. Some times a diagnosis isn’t even that important and sometimes it is unclear. To quote something my psychology professor said in an e mail

    “...YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT ALL OF THESE DISORDER NAMES SIMPLY DESCRIBE SYMPTOMS THAT ARE MAKING THE PERSON (OR OTHER PEOPLE) MISERABLE. SOMETIMES I DON'T STRESS SO MUCH ON THE DIAGNOSIS IF IT'S A LITTLE UNCLEAR....I WORK ON THE PROBLEM...”

    Then again even that's doubtful. I've known it can also depend on the frame of mind / mindset / mood of the psychologist at the time of diagnosis. :wink:

    Thanks guys, I didn't ask for you to tell me you can't give me an opinion or even why doctors may be wrong..... I put a disclaimer up in the original post, I know these things. I simply asked for an opinion, so if you're not gonna help me out then dont post... I'm not looking to be told things I'm aware of.

    I was just curious, never said it would help me.... it piqued my intrest a little, just wanted some opinions....
