-No sense of identity

-Fear of growing up/growing old - afraid of the future/change

-Problems with, for example, tying shoelaces, driving,... learned how to ride a bike late (8 yrs)

-Always scared when going to bed - in the dark; scared my mind will play tricks and that I'll freak out

-During the day wanting to keep everything as dark as possible, curtains closed etc

-Harmed animals/insects as a kid, but not extremely


-Scared of new things

-Not willing to go over personal boundaries or overcome fears

-Dislike touch, like shaking hands, hugs,...

-Few friends

-Extreme need of praise, shutting down when stressed

-Emotionally sensitive but also physically sensitive and low pain tolerance

-Overanalysis (making lists is a hobby, I've been obsessively looking for an answer for the past weeks)

  • You said you are drinking alone. How many drinks do you have per day?It comes and goes, sometimes I drink a couple of times a week and every time I drink it's enough to feel drunk. I can also be sober for weeks.
