What is neurosis?
« on: October 23, 2013, 10:06:47 PM »
I saw this on wiki:

"...anxiety, sadness or depression, anger, irritability, mental confusion, low sense of self-worth, etc., behavioral symptoms such as phobic avoidance, vigilance, impulsive and compulsive acts, lethargy, etc., cognitive problems such as unpleasant or disturbing thoughts, repetition of thoughts and obsession, habitual fantasizing, negativity and cynicism, etc. Interpersonally, neurosis involves dependency, aggressiveness, perfectionism, schizoid isolation, socio-culturally inappropriate behaviors, etc."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neurosis

Is that accurate?

How bored are you? Don't you claim to read Freud or something?

I have been, but I want to be clear on it.

I've seen people throw around "neurotic" as if that means closely examining behavior of others and themselves.

Everything in bolded is me.

But are those really anxiety disorders?

Which would be neurotic.

This is what I don't get. I read Asperger's, Autism, Schizophrenia, Manic Depression, and now this...and why do all of these things have in common. All of these I read them and I'm like "Yep that's me".

Hypochondriosis.

Actually, your problem is that you quit before you get to disorder. Everyone is neurotic (some caveats) to some degree, the degree your neurosis disorders your life is the degree to which you have a problem.

I just told my sister this tonight that if the disorder starts affecting my life to where I can't function properly, I'll get some help.

This kind of goes along with that mental block thread I made, I dunno my perception of things has changed. I've become more obsessive over certain things and increasing my perfectionism.

I fall back onto old addictions to push aside it.

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Ignore people.

Especially yourself (if you're a person, that is).  Even more especially, "people" on the internet, particularly those who think they know something about......people.  ;D

Achronos,

This morning I realized you would be better fit by the neurotic analog in Japanese:

shinkeishitsu

For whatever reason Moritan therapy was on my mind.

Thanks for the link. Remember you are supposed to start ignoring me. ;)

In truth, I think you made me realize I need a break from posting here for awhile. I guess I'll need to do something else at work when I'm not "working "

My low content contribution:

Neurotics build castles in the air
Psychotics live in them
And psychiatrists collect the rent

And now I'm going to phantasise about that Irish coffee and the mornings Ulster fry.... ;)
