Conditions with symptom: 'lack of emotion'
So I'm 33. I am confident in my abilities in work and confident in my social life. Any change in emotion makes me red and blotchy. I get it all down my chest and try to self talk, breathe and wriggles my toes to remove excess energy. I was in a meeting today, like every other day found myself heating up in my face and suddenly nerves came over me. The nerves are totally not anything to do with what I was saying but simply as I could feel the redness with the feeling my head would burst. It's so frustrating as I look like I lack confidence. I spoke to a psychologist and said its self talk (negative self talk) - I am paying attention to the possibility but don't think that's the issue. What can I do? Is there a tablet?
How do i know if I have ADD/ADHD? I dont know if i have it or is just me being pure lazy, i kick my self up the backside because i can't complete things. went to 6form droppedo out because i was always late and never in, Went to college dropped out and always late but i enojoyed the course but stil.... Is it because i lack willpower? Ive made a appointment with a doctor soon but i can't help feeling its just me lack of will power
I am 18 and was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 8. It sounds like a posibility and I can relate to it because I was expelled from school in year 10 (age 15) and since then have had to sort myself out pretty much. I've been on loads of different dosages and medications and have got the right one for me now. Everyones different with it as I have a friend who's also 18 who has had ADHD diagnosed since he was about 14 and he takes no medication as he learnt to control it better. See someone, take advice and see how you feel
I can relate to you on this one. Im a 25 year old female and has recently just be diagnoised with Adult ADHD. Reading your comment I noticed you saying you droped out of education few times, A few years back i was the same, Just about managed to get through college, however I had two atempts of going to University and only lasted two months. I always felt different like there was a blanklet covering me. I battled with depression for few years and that was when I did my own research. ( what the internet is good at) I researched ADHD and i was surprised that all the symtoms of it i have and have had all my life! I managed to get my doctor to refer me and now my life is on track with the help of different kinds of therpy and medication. hope this is some help.

I AM 37 AND HAVE ALWAYS STRUGGLED WITH EYE CONTACT AND SCORED 36 ON THE TEST WHICH CONFIRMS MY THOUGHTS THAT I MAY HAVE A FORM OF AUTISM. I AM ATTENDING A CPN FOR DEPRESSION AS I LACK THE ABILITY TO FORM ATTACHMENTS BUT NO-ONE WANTS TO GIVE ME A DIAGNOSIS WHICH I CAN WORK WITH. I MANAGE IN DAY TO DAY LIFE BY TRYING TO FIT IN BY BEHAVING AS I SEE OTHERS DOING, BUT JUST DON'T FEEL NORMAL AND PEOPLE HAVE NOTED MY LACK OF EYE CONTACT AND DON'T KNOW HOW TO GO FORWARD FROM HERE. WHO DO I SEE TO GET A DIAGNOSIS IF I KNEW WHAT WAS WRONG WITH ME THEN I COULD WORK ON FIXING IT, AS IT IS I FEEL SO LONELY BUT CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. I CAN FORCE MYSELF TO MAKE EYE CONTACT BUT AM NOT COMFORTABLE WITH IT AT ALL....
Hi, I am 24, its come to a point where I am erected all day nearly on average 7 hours. Or sometimes there is no erection but I want to make me ejaculate. And often I give into my desires and do it, I am ejaculating on average 7 times a day to a point now where I don't have much semen, just a bit of fluid comes out. It looks fairly normal, apart from the head, it gets bigger or stays small depending on the emotion of how Sexual arousal I am, which I read to be normal and only few can manage the thickness of their penis. However, coming back to the situation am I normal or should I be worried and consulate my GP?
I am a 51 year old woman. I have never found sex enjoyable and have never been given an orgasm by another human being. Over my life, each partner has had an affair due to my lack of interest which has also left me distrustful. My current long term partner of 8 years is now losing patience. I am seeing a sexual therapist but the appointments are a month apart. The first month I had to do pelvic floor exercises, the second month I have to play with food in my mouth ?? It is 8 months since I approached the gp for this referral and quite frankly am feeling desolate at the lack of help it is giving me. I have said this is my last attempt. If sexual therapy cannot help then I feel I am best to simply withdraw from relationships and any attempt at sex. Help....what do I do, where do I go ???
I am a 21 year old hetrosexual male with very little body hair. I have no hair whatsoever under my armpits and only a small amount of wispy, very fine pubic hair in my genital area. I have no facial or chest hair either, however I am of normal stature (6ft tall) with a normal head hair and a normal sized penis and testicles (6" x 5 1/2") I find it extremely embarrassing in changing room situations with other men but the worst situation by far is when a new girlfriend, (who so far have all been much hairier than me, by the way) sees my virtually hairless body and says something like 'I wish I didn't have to shave all the time' - and 'you're so lucky' which is not really what I want to hear. Do you think my lack of body hair may be down to a lack of Testosterone or could it be something else?
