I Think I May Be Crazy….(mental Disorder?)?

Question by Riley: I think I may be crazy….(mental disorder?)?
I had a traumatic childhood. With an alcoholic father, who was nelgectful and emotionally and physically abusive. Now I’m 21. I’ve been addicted to drugs, food, alcohol, smoking etc. Lately in my life I have a hard time saying no to sexual encounters, whether really wanted or not I comply. I’ve now had 11 partners. One was a relationship the rest were either one night stands or casual sex. I’m unhappy most of the time. Can’t find anything fulfilling in my life. I don’t want to kill myself, though sometimes I wish I could. I have generalized anxiety disorder. Depression. In relationships I’m completely devoted, almost too giving. And I jump with everything I have. which some people call “doormat.” I give give give, until that person is basically my only concern. Thing is no one wants more than sex from me now. I haven’t had someone ask me on a date in a long time. My question is….is this a mental condition? Do I have some sort of disease? Or whatever…I just want to know what I have. So I can fix it. I can’t keep living like this. And I don’t want answers that say “seek counseling” I’m not stupid I know I need counseling. I just want a name for it. What is it…and how do I fix it.

Borderline Personality Disorder tends to do this but in general, this numbness can be a symptom in a number of different pathologies. It can be experienced in everything from Depression to Schizophrenia so you MUST get it diagnosed by a professional for a true reason.

It can be called Detachment, Apathy, Disassociation… Many things.

I get minor periods of disassociation in times of stress and because of Borderline Personality Disorder, tend to have a sustained numbness which then can switch to anxiety or anger, etc.

Therapists, Social Workers, Psychologists Etc…I Am a Social Work Intern and I Need Help Conducting Groups.?

Question by Working Mother: Therapists, Social Workers, Psychologists etc…I am a social work intern and I need help conducting groups.?
I intern at a residential center for girls between the ages of 14 and 17. There are issues such as rape, abuse, and drug addiction, Axis I of Major Depression, Bipolar, and Axis II of borderline personality disorder and histrionic personality disorder. Individual sessions are good but not group. The first group I discussed the purpose of group. The residents were very resistant and some walked out and stated they did not trust each other. The next group I talked about trust and explained confidentiality again however the girls almost got into a physical fight (not related to therapy) and additional groups appeared to produce major discomfort or walk outs. I have spoken with my clinical consultant about this and she says I am doing a good job because each time I was still able some engaged and participation has increased each group. However I don’t know what to do for the next group when I begin to discuss topics relating to their therapy some act out and disrupt group.

What Is the History Behind Support Groups?

Question by Kyle: What is the history behind support groups?
Support groups, group therapy whatever you want to call it, I’m curious as to how they began. I’m sure there were similar practices since recorded history but what about the formal group sessions that we think of today? Don’t just senda link I would like a detailed description.

Answer by Pandora
Formal support groups may appear to be a modern phenomenon, but they supplement traditional fraternal organizations such as Freemasonry in some respects, and may build on certain supportive functions carried out in families.

Since at least 1982, the Internet has provided a new and successful venue for support groups. Discussing on-line self-help support groups as the precursor to e-therapy, Martha Ainsworth notes that “the enduring success of these groups has firmly established the potential of computer-mediated communication to enable discussion of sensitive personal issues.”
