    who understand what I'm experiencing. I know some of the posts are a lot older, but as I'm just learning about neurosis, I need as much information on it and managing it as I can get. I haven't officially been diagnosed with any sort of mental disorder, but I have received high...

    every passing thought

    or worry i have turns into panic. i over think so hard that i can't stop spiraling into this feeling. i don't know who to talk to because many just think i'm overreacting and need to calm down. but it's hard to stop most times.

    Can't Shake Feeling of Self-disgust.

    I just realized something about myself. I live every day with the constant nagging feeling that I am not doing enough. If I am not always doing something "contructive" , I am in a perpetual state of guilt, shame, anxiety and paranoia. (I know this...

    The Perfect Word To Describe Me.

    I'm as neurotic as Woody Allen.

    Practically the female version of him. Always worrying about "what if's" or "it could be..." My life is a constant comedic act in tandem with a humiliating experience.

    I feel as though I put too much focus on myself.

    I'm sick of therapy, self pity, anger, everything. I guess you could say I'm a paranoid, "sensitive person." Basically, I convince myself I'm a terrible person and anyone who's not a loved one is out to get me- looking at me as useless, a loser, a freak. I ask questions- like if...

    Ok.. So I love attention.

    I crave attention. When I feel I have been ignored for more then the briefest of instants. My mind jumps to a very dark place. Perhaps this is an exaggeration. Perhaps this is the truth. Regardless. I hate being ignored. I hate being alone. I love being alone. Silence. Do...

    So I Tell The Guy, "Neurosis. Look It Up In Wikipedia."

    The guy was bonkers, driving me mad-- had been for more than an hour.  To keep it on a quasi-professional level and avoid directly accusing him I asked, "There a chance you know anyone who's neurotic?" "What's that mean?" I sniped, "Neurosis.  Look it up in Wikipedia...
