Re: Diagnose me..

No idea, but if you haven't seen a Dr. please do. I just saw one for my hormones and depression and just the hormones she put me on, in 1 day, I am telling you, it's like the weight of the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I could cry thinking of all the years I've spent feeling tense/worried and thinking I just needed to "deal with it" when it was some simple brain chemistry. You may not have to feel all this fear and anxiety.

All of the things you describe are symptoms of hypervigilance which is in itself a symptom of both PTSD and Anxiety disorder. Without more information it is not possible to know. Only a qualified mental health provider can properly document a history and provide you with a diagnosis. You should seek assistance. I suffered with hypervigilance and PTSD for years until I found a counselor who had a similar childhood experiences and was able to unlock the answers I so desperately sought. In a very real way she saved my life. I don't know your situation but I know how debilitating and exhausting hypervigilance can be. Help is there if you seek it.

Re: Diagnose me..

Low self esteem
Insecurity
Acting-out
Generalized anxiety disorder
Introvert/agoraphobic
Borderline tendencies (but impossible to make a diagnosis on such limited info)

Please get yourself to a therapist pronto. In the meantime, stop by Barnes and Noble and pick up as many books as you can find on the aforementioned topics. Or Google them all and take lots of notes/printouts.

Un-Aware.

Attachments are the cause of your suffering.

Read this:

"A healthy choice to enforce boundaries by walking away from a dysfunctional relationship has more to do with recognizing the likeliest outcomes than with wanting to punish or retaliate against one's wayward spouse."

See a Doctor to see a therapist. Not on-line amateurs.

Re: Diagnose me..

It sounds like you already started diagnosing yourself when you made the list. Now that you are aware of them do the same thing a professional has done and research them. I am positive that as you do a common thread will connect them all. Tug this string out of the twine ball that is your life and you are on your way. A good therapist may help. I would avoid a doctor for now, since in all likelihood their response will be to pull out the script pad and put you on medication.

These are the only ones I find troubling but even fear of abandonment can be normal-ish, depending on your history. I think most of these issues are childhood related, would you like your childhood experiences with the rest of the class?

I can't comment much on the other psychological issues, but I was thinking for this one maybe try some Velcro shoes. OR shoes that stay on easier without you having to tie them. I too worry about my shoes falling off since they're always coming un-tied.
