What is it with laymen who like to diagnose people with all and sundry mental health conditions

Having a general sense of dread is not a pleasant feeling.

I flipped out this morning. No idea why, nothing happened to set me off or anything. I know I've been stressed about some things and my best guess is that's what it was, but still, why this morning, wtf. One of the things I dislike most about myself is my difficulties with dealing with stress. I am too old to be this incompetent where these things are concerned, yet here I am anyway. Meh.

I find being yelled at very triggering.

^ agreed. I also find it triggering to me when I yell. Yelling in general is bad for me.

My tendency to get stuck in routines is sometimes a blessing, other times a curse. Right now I'm stuck in a pattern of inactivity and I'm beginning to dislike the person I'm becoming in this mess of nothingness I'm lulled into. I don't think it's depression, but I could be wrong. I lack the emotional self-awareness to know for sure. Maybe the reason why is irrelevant. I should, perhaps, think less on the whys and think more on the whole how to knock it off part.

I think "a mess of nothingness" is usually related to anxiety more than depression, not that I can feel or identify either one.

Over 12 months of intense therapy and I feel like I'm back to square one again

Although to be fair I don't feel suicidal anymore. I hadn't even realised that I was suicidal. I suppose I've been that way for so long that it just became part of my personality.

I don't think there have been many days in my life that I haven't thought about how I would "do it" but for some reason those thoughts have gone. I don't know how I'm supposed to feel about that.
