How do I tell my psychiastrist that i think I have borderline? I don't want to diagnose myself, but have almost all the symptoms. I have bipolar aswell

Speak openly: Simply tell your psychiatrist about your concerns, and that you've been studying about these conditions. In some cases, bipolar disorder can be confused with borderline pd, because mood instability can occur in both. That said, most humans have some emotional conflict in the same areas described in borderline pd, without having the full disorder. Do have the conversation with your doctor! ...Read more

I really need some answers! why am i constantly having delusions of thinking i killed people as i walk past them and have to always check?

Obsessive compulsive: Disorder. This is likely a form of obsessive can disorder. These are unlikely to be true delusions.

You didn't cause or choose for this to be the case, it is likely genetics and possibly other factors we don't quite understand yet. Be strong! ...Read more

I have chronic migraines and I have had neurologists tell me there is nothing they can do to help me. What do I do now?

See Osteopath: Imo, many migraineurs have chronically slightly tilted head, which can occur for variety of reasons. As a result, neck muscles on one side, side away from the tilt, become chronically spastic. In these cases efforts need to be made to relieve the chronic muscle spasm. Massage, acupuncture, yoga, relaxation therapies, and biofeedback can help. See an osteopath. Check ergonomics at your worksite. ...Read more
