I feel that. Adulting basically sucks and right now at times feels pointless.

All I can say is hang in there. Trying to do the same myself.

Ok, so do you have any way to stay elsewhere?

At least until someone can help you get set up on your own?

Yea, as soon as I was able to get the vaccine I got it.

I am so sorry you had so many people close to you die from this.

To me it makes zero sense not to get vaccinated. It’s for the good of everyone.

Honestly I would talk with a lawyer or the UK equivalent.

Would you be looking to get money for the negative impact of this?

This.

And as someone who drinks sometimes watching TV is not the same thing. At all.

why do some here, with mostly close scores, get a "watch out or else you'll backslide into sociopathy" whereas others get a "low risk" statement at the end? What do you define as a close score? And tbh, I would maybe google the test if you have questions about it. It’s the TriPM...

I think the test is useless lol. real psychos and narcs probably score like saints compared to us. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/af/e9/24/afe924699d9e90684f4524496b7b8d6a.gif Keep in mind that you could say this about any psych test. And if someone who is able to (i.e. an adult) really wants to th...

I've mentioned this before, but anyway.... Pathological Demand Avoidance (normally diagnosed as ASD + ADHD) can show a number of supposedly narcissistic or psychopathic traits, but they aren't driven by the same things . PDA is avoidant, defensive, over-thinking, risk-averse. But it comes across as...

I’ve been busy so I have not been on here or replying much. What I am going to say is that if anyone does get a higher score, don’t worry too much about it. This is a self assessment, and unless you have major legal/personal issues related to this pursuing a diagnosis would not be that wise due to t...

I'm sorry as well. To be honest I don't know of therapists being permitted to write letters, or to describe or situations to a third party other than a court of law, or for medical records. I thought it was a non-disclosure issue for privacy, and because it's not their place to intervene in matters...

I'm sorry all that happened to you. If you will continue to work with this therapist, I think it would be important to let her know how disappointed and unsupported her action made you feel - especially since she had not mentioned her stance earlier. I no longer expect very much from people, so I a...

Ok, So as some of you know I had issues due to a shooting and then break in to my unit. My Mom could have died. Basically I had no help after all of that for the most part. Even someone who claimed to be a good friend did not care that much. She was clearly in it to make me more anxious and be enter...

Questions like "Have you ever cancelled on plans last minute?" etc. Um yes. I've been a single mother since my daughter was six months old. My plans were frequently changed because of childcare, or her illness, etc. Also I'm autistic with social phobia so sometimes I'm in shutdown or burn...
