    Well I'm not really sure if I actually have personality disorders or not because I haven't been diagnosed but I'm pretty good at hiding things. Anyways I always feel like something bad is going to happen. I periodically check behind my back to make sure nobody is there. I have a bad feeling that my parents got in a car crash every time they go somewhere and are gone for a while. I hear something in my head that tells me to do something or be killed. I always fear I am going to see somebody I know when I go out in public. Along with these I am distracted very easily and read the wrong word when the word is actually another word and sometimes type the wrong word. And on top of that I have mood swings and I think anger management problems. I can't have all of these disorders can I? Is it possible that I am just imagining that I have all these? How is it that nobody has caught onto the disorders if I do indeed have all of them?

    I don't know much about personality disorders but you certainly sound paranoid and have some sort of social anxiety, maybe generalized anxiety disorder. Every night before I go to sleep I check under my bed, even though I know there is no one there, its paranoia. I highly recommend that you see a doctor about this as it is obviously severely affecting you a lot. I wish you the best of luck hun :hug:

    Could be generalized anxiety disorder, Go see your doctor.

    Well I'm not going to see a doctor because unfortunately that is out of the question. Is there anything else I can do??

    you could start by doing research on your own. since you know your symptoms best you will likely be able to recognize a description of yourself if you see one. its kind of a "voila-epiphony" moment, like the last puzzle piece sliding into place. the internet is a veritable cornecopia of information. search through mental health websites and see what description fits you.

    if you find something that will at least give you a place to start. also i've found just hanging around here to be pretty helpful. a place for support when i'm down and a chance to help others when i'm doing okay. its good stuff.

    Other than the "I hear something in my head that tells me to do something or be killed.". I'm pretty much the same as you. And I also sometimes feel that I'm just imagining it because I do imagine quite a lot of things. Don't know if this bothers you as well, but something that bothers me a lot is the fact that I like to be recognized and acknowledged for the things I do, but I highly dislike compliments. I sometimes dislike compliments even more than criticisms. :dry:
