13 craziest mental disorders

Reakcije: 
Triskaidekaphobia: fear of the number 13.

Adolf Hitler was triskaidekaphobic. A specific fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia or friggatriskaidekaphobia. Tetraphobia is the fear of the number 4 in China, Japan, and Korea.

Kleptomania:steal what you can

Inability to resist impulses of stealing. A person with this disorder is compelled to steal things, generally things of little or no value, such as pens, paper clips, or miniature toy cars (dinky cars). They are often unaware of performing the theft until some time later.


Bigorexia: working out too much

Bigorexia or Muscle dysmorphia is a disorder in which an individual becomes obsessed that they are not muscular enough. Sometimes referred to as bigorexia or reverse anorexia nervosa, it is a very specific case of body dysmorphic disorder (BDD).

Muscle dysmorphia can cause individuals to:
- Constantly check themselves in a mirror
- Become distressed if a gym session is missed
- Take potentially dangerous drugs (e.g. anabolic steroids)
- Neglecting jobs/relationships/family due to exercising


Bibliomania: collecting too many books

Bibliomania is an obsessive-compulsive disorder involving the collecting of books to the point where social relations or health are damaged. The purchase of multiple copies of the same book and edition and the accumulation of books beyond possible capacity of use or enjoyment are frequent symptoms of bibliomania.



Exploding head syndrome: a loud noise in the head

It causes the sufferer to occasionally experience a tremendously loud noise as if from within his or her own head, usually described as an explosion or a roar. This usually occurs within an hour or two of falling asleep, but is not the result of a dream.


Trichotillomania: urge to pull out scalp hair

Trichotillomania is an impulse control disorder characterised by the repeated urge to pull out scalp hair, eyelashes, beard hair, nose hair, pubic hair, eyebrows or other body hair. It may be distantly related to obsessive-compulsive disorder, with which it shares both similarities and differences.


Androphobia: fear of men

Androphobia is an abnormal and persistent fear of men. Sufferers of this disorder experience anxiety even though they realize they may face no real threat. Androphobia is one of infinite possible phobias, and as such can be traced back to a specific triggering event, usually a traumatic experience at an early age.


Munchausen syndrome: faking illnesses to gain atention

In Munchausen syndrome, the sufferer feigns, exaggerates, or creates symptoms of illnesses in himself or herself in order to gain attention, sympathy, and comfort from medical personnel. The role of "patient" is a familiar and comforting one, and it fills a psychological need in people with Munchausen's.


Celebriphilia: pathological desire to have s.e.x with a Celebrity

celebriphilia is an abnormally intense desire to have a romantic and/or sexual relationship with a celebrity.


Dr. Strangelove syndrome: hands with a life of its own

Alien hand syndrome (or Dr. Strangelove syndrome) is a neurological disorder in which one of the sufferer's hands seems to take on a life of its own.

Sometimes the sufferer will not be aware of what the hand is doing until it is brought to his or her attention. Alien hands can perform complex acts such as undoing buttons or removing clothing.



Foreign accent syndrome: speaking your language with an accent

The syndrome causes people to speak their native language as if they had a foreign accent; for example, an American native speaker might speak with a French-sounding accent. It usually follows a severe brain injury, such as a stroke.


Capgras' syndrome: believing there's an impostor in the family

The Capgras delusion or Capgras' syndrome is a rare disorder in which a person holds a delusional belief that an acquaintance, usually a close family member or spouse, has been replaced by an identical looking imposter.


Transvestic fetishism:wearing opposite gender clothes

Transvestic fetishism is a sexual fetish for the clothing of the opposite gender. It is one of a number of cross-dressing behaviours and is primarily a psychiatric term.

Transvestic fetishism, fetishistic transvestism and sometimes transvestism are also often used to describe any sexual behaviour or arousal that is in any way connected to clothes of the other gender. Especially the latter is problematic, because transvestism and cross-dressing are neither a sexual fetish, nor do they necessarily have anything to do with sexual behaviour or arousal.

I have emetophobia, fear of vomiting. It's really wierd, like, I know it's no big deal, but it was so bad that I had to go to a pshyciatrist (or however you spell it). I'm a lot better now, but it used to be that if I would get a little nauseous, I would get scared that I was going to throw up, which would make me more nauseous, and so on. But it still sucks because now whenever I get nervous, I get nauseous, and it's quite annoying.

Hypochondria is feining an illness in oneself for attention. Mun. by proxy is when you harm another person usually a child (perpetrated most likely by a parent or other close caregiver) in order to be treated like a hero or be drowned in sympathy by others.

I have trichotillomania. So do both of my sisters. It's annoying, and problematic. I've shaved my head so many times with the hope that it would go away with my hair. And just so you know, I'm pretty sure it IS an O.C.D., because I can't stop, no matter what I do. It's always the 'one more, just one more' thing. Check out a few forums for it. It's actually pretty intense.

Given that they had a photo of a drag queen, I'd like to point out that like 90% of the transvestites out there are straight men, not gay men. Drag queens are the ones that are portrayed by homosexual individuals.

I have ADHD, it's absolute hell. I didn't realise I had it until I was 15, and I was put on medication for it. I'm 20 now and I'm still taking the medication. If I don't, I run around like crazy, fidget, obsess over small things, feel the need to question anything and everything, explore places thoroughly, run off during conversations, randomly start a new sentence in the middle of a totally different one... etc etc. I really hate it and often my partner gets really frustrated about it.

Yeah, to whoevre posted above this, im not really sure what its called, but its probably a subconcious thing, or maybe even a self-image thing, or your paranoid of ppl tryin 2 see ur balls,
anyway,

Ive always had a HUGE fear of anything supernatural, im not sure why, but i can like 'sense' when something wierd is gonna happen.
whenever i watch a scary movie (ie the Haunting) Ill get a wierd, burning sensation (and its a different one than fear) just before like a ghost or something comes into the screen (and this happened the first time i saw it as well), or if i have a nightmare itll happen, and sometimes i just cant walk into a room because of it, i get into the doorway, and this sensation runs thru my entire body, and i just KNOW something is in there. Like the one time i got the feeling when i was about to go and do the laundry i got this feeling all thru my body, and was debating with myself whether or not to go open the dryer, and i opened it and then outta nowhere the clothes leapt into flames...its really wierd and scary, anyone know what its called? if you do (or just got any other comments) email em to me at joedude200@hotmail.com

First I would like to say that for about one year I thought that I had OCD, I had a bad fear of germs and throwing up but then, when I heard about OCD I began to create phobias that fit the illness, so that I could blame it on something. I started to count my steps and then I would order everything, color order, alphabetical. anyway about a year later I convinced myself I was fooling myself and got rid of everything except the germ freak and throwing up. AND certain noises drive me crazy. If ANYONE can PLEASE tell me what I have, I would be VERY VERY THANKFUL. AND is there such thing as a small case of OCD?

Whoever it was who said they get really scared all of a sudden...for no reason....like n bed or in the shower. I completely understand! For me it's mostly in bed though... I feel like I can't move...that something's outside of the bedroom and I break out in a cold sweat. What makes it worse is that I'm a 24 y/o mom/wife...so my husband lies next to me w/ no idea that I'm freaking out. (He tells me to wake him up...but..it's not that easy and I feel like I'm crazy) I get sooooooooo paranoid that something horrible is happening to my daughter...so I HAVE to get up to check on her...but it's terrifying. Even after I see that she's ok ...I can't shake that feeling. If anyone knows wtf this is... email me... Inked7482@aol.com

I used to have a fear of adult men. Not guys my own age, or teenage guys, but older men, especially overweight ones. I still get really nervous around them, which is understandable; I was abused by my dad for years. I also have a fear of cockroaches, and of driving over grates. And of crowds in elevators. I get terrified when I'm close to people I don't know, especially if I end up having to touch them... it scares the bejeebers out of me!

I have one of the above disorders, Trichotillomania. I'm almost 14, nearly 15 and have had this since I was 11. I told my friends about it after I found out what it was, and eventually I got up in front of my class and told them. I used to wear a bandana everyday to cover it up.. soon I just shaved my head and got a wig. I've had a few wigs now and it's so hard because I don't know how to tell my boyfriend.. it's frightening the whole thing. I can sympathize with anyone with some disorder like this.. it just happens and you never know why.

I have some kinda strange phobias too. First of all, I'm dead scared of cows. When I was younger I had to ride my bike through a meadow filled with cows (I live far, far out on the country) but I just broke down. I even get petrified when seeing a picture of a cow that faces the camera or a miniature cow. I hate it, it's embarrasing and it screws up my life.

Another phobia I have is for wrists. I was traumatised when really young when a friend of mine tried to kill herself by slitting her wrists. Since then I scream, bite and kick if anyone touches my wrists, I can't touch other people's wrists without freaking out and I especially can't stand looking at people "faking" that they're cutting their wrists.

On top of all that I have some obsessive compulsive things that I need to do. If I don't I get anxious and might have a panic attack.

This was a very long comment... Anyway, I appreciated this "13 craziest mental disorders"-thing, although the title could be seen as somewhat offensive.

I personally don't have any phobia's, but I do get those spontaneous moments when I get freaked out or surprised. Although I've never experienced all your phobia's and such, couldn't it just be called over-reacting or simply Paranoia? I mean, really, life can be scary, but not so scary that you cant do certain things. Don't take this personally though, just expressing my opinion.

I to have the exploding head thing. For me though, it sounds like more of a crescendoing roar. I used to always be afraid that I was dying when it happened (until I figured it that it always happened, and it never killed me)...I had never made the correlation but it does usually happen not too long after falling asleep! Heretofore, I had always ascribed it to a personal quirk, not some kind of disease!

I think I may have a weak form of exploding head syndrome, except it isn't exactly explosions, and it doesn't happen often. Once it was a loud burst of static, and another time it was like an electrical shock. Everytime it happens it scares the shit out of me.

I have exploding head syndrome. It comes and goes. But it is NOT a mental disorder (and yes, the title is offensive). In my case, it is connected to a brain injury caused by toxins. Sometimes, it has sounded like a very loud scream, sometimes like an enormous chime or doorbell. It's something like an extremely vivid dream, except that it's only a noise. I wake up, look around, and there is no question that it was not at all real. Then I get on with my day. I wouldn't say it's harmless given how I got it, but it definitely doesn't mean you're crazy.

It's weird, I have Anorachnophobia. Unlike Arachnophobia (fear of spider) Anorachnophobia is fear of small spiders. I'm fine with tarantulas etc. but I can't stand common, house spiders. LOL

P.S. I agree with the above comment.

Here's something no one has mentioned; I'm like deathly afraid of bees. I've never been stung by a bee in my whole entire life because I always run away even if it's 3 ft away because I know it's going to smell my perfume and come after me. I'm also very claustrophobic, if I'm in a tight space or crowded by people I panic. I used to be afraid of heights, or so I thought, a couple years on a roller coaster (the kind with the seats that are hanging from the track) stopped in mid-air all the way at the top and I literally almost fell out, till that day I am so afraid of falling anything. The whole time I thought I was afraid of heights, I noticed that I would actually go on the tallest roller coaster in the world if I could but I'd be sooo afraid I would fall out. I get scared sometimes if I have to jump off a platform 2 feet off the ground.

i had OCD, but like a few months ago i saw this show on mtv, and this girl was talking about her OCD. She showed all the things that she does and it was similar to mine. Also she mentioned that someimes she does things to please God, and i was like that too. Before watching the show i didnt once stop to think that what i was doing was rediculous and that it had nothing to do with God. But after i saw it i realized that it was stupid and childish. i stopped doing all the weird things even though i was very used to it. I still have OCD, for example i randomly touch very weird things out of noowheree....but its not like before.

I think I can relate to the head explosion thing. Often I am woken up by a loud "BANG!" that no-one else hears. It doesn't happen often though. Oh yea, and Maunchausen syndrome by proxy is when a mother makes her child sick intentionally. Hypochondria is NOT making yourself sick, it is the persistent and irrational belief that you are ill.

I think a lot of you guys are over exaggerating about 'having' a phobia. You might think you have one but it might just be a fear of something.

Anonymous said...

A phobia is an irrational fear. So just being a little jumpy around something like spiders is not a phobia. Never wanting to see, hear, feel, or be near a spider, and having sever anxiety attacks around them is a phobia. There is a fear of confrontation, can't remember the name for the life of me.
http://www.phobialist.com/
Go there, has a list of many different types of phobias. Not all of them, because there are many names for different ones.
There are several ways to try to cure, most involve medical treatment and Therepy. Another way, not used so much by anyone, is flooding. I will take the example spiders for instance.
You stick a person in a room filled with spiders, and they assumption is that the person will have their anxiety attack for awhile and then burn themselves out. It isn't a very good practice, doesn't always work.
I know I sound like a know it all. I hope this helped someone.

Whoever said that hypochondria is faking an illness for attention: you are wrong. Hypochondria is genuinely belieiving that you have a disease because you heard about it and are convinced you have the symptoms. I know because I used to be a hypochondriac...luckily for me it subsided over time and now I just have generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder...I'm telling you Zoloft works miracles for anxiety!!!

I have phasmophobia (fear of ghosts/supernatural beings). I can't control it. I will hide and stop breathing because I feel a strange feeling like there around me. I also have paranoia. I have a hard time taking a shower because I think there are cameras in my bathroom. I also think that everyone (even people I have never met) hates me and would do anything to humiliate or kill me.

For some reason I get really agressive when there is going to be an earthquake. I get to the point where if someone says a single word to me I could bash them in the head with something.

I also get the weirdest obsessions. Currently I'm filling a 16oz glass Faygo bottle with the ashes from insence. I also can't stop playing with fire....I lit my hair on fire on accident.

I also have the worst luck. I'm 15 and I've been struck by lightning, hit with a car, and mugged at gun point.

Anonymous said...

I used to have that feeling that cameras were setup in my house, especially in the shower, like if i was in the shower or my bedroom or whatever i could just picture everyone in my family in the lounge room watching me having a wank, along with many other strange feelings, i wouldnt call them phobias or obsessions even though thats what they are but i just try to convince myself it is all in my head before it gets to an extreme stage of paranoia, it seems like i go through all these things at different stages in my life and i do believe it has alot to do with events that happen in ur life,right now i am going through this stage where i find it hard to be myself,act naturally, and i strongly believe that is to do with my brother dying as a result from heroin addiction, i hate the feeling of people talking about me as if i am a scarred individual and a kid bound to lose control but it has gotten to the stage where i feel retarded, like i know i'm not but thats the feeling i get after i say something stupid to someone. but luckily with all the other things i have gone through what it takes i think, is a lot of willpower and the strength to believe that they are all in your head and to just carry on with life.

Thank you so much to the person who created this because I always used to think that I was the only person in the world who got so deadly scared in the middle of the night for no reason. I would want to cover my head with my pillow but I would be too afraid to move, I think because I thought if I moved something might notice me and try to hurt me. Also, I don't know if this is a phobia or just a fear but I have an obsession with eating in circles around anything that is like a sandwich, a burger, a burrito, etc. I can stop if I really wanted to but I don't. No matter what I always do it. A lot of times I don't even realize that I'm doing it. It's strange because it's not like it's going to make a difference but yet I have to do it anyway. So, If anyone knew anything about that that would be great.

Anonymous said...

I think I have emetophobia because I always freak out when someone is feeling sick so I can feel my heart pumping faster and faster and sometimes you can hear my voice tremble when I say something. Plus, when I was little my brother was just faking being sick and I started to cry. I was being rediculous now that I realize it, but it's not that big a deal. Oh, and you'd think I'd have a fear of hights because I fell down the stairs when I was little but I actually want a two-story house and I'm not afraid of the hights; I love flying. But my phobia isn't intense or in need of attention so I'm pretty good.
For now.

I used to have Levophobia, but never really thought anything of it. I noticed it, but didn't realize it was any sort of problem. It might not have been a phobia either, because I wasn't really scared.. just disturbed. I thought It was just OCD (which I don't actually have, though I have Asperger's Syndrome, which has a few similar symptoms). Having assigned seats in school cured it; if I didn't have assigned seats I always sat with the wall to my left. I don't anymore, though.

All these fears are brought on by dodgy, violent, abusive childhoods. I use to have a fear of tons of things buttons, boys drinking milk at school, parents over eating, going to school confronting people, bald men, germs, writing, learning, spiders, snakes, moths, hairdressers, bosses, people touching me or coming up behind me, car boot sales, sergical equipment like seringes.
Then I went to Australia and lots of people said, "Have no fear your in the southern hemisphere", then suddenly all my fears went away, and I swam with the crocodiles and sharks, gardened with the funnelweb spiders, made clothes with big bottons, donated blood, became a teacher, wrote alot.etc. Fear is brought on by tyrants and bullies who want you to fear so they can rule you. Tell the fear to go away. Also fear comes from the stomach, where there is lots of nerve endings, eat well and do stomach excercises.

I have that throwing up phobia.. Ive had it for as long as I can remember.. Whenever my stomach starts to hurt, i start sweating and my heart starts beating fast.. I hate the feeling it makes me want to get sick even more.. Im not as bad as I was when I was younger, well since I turned 21 and can drink when I want, (I have a VERY low tolerance for alcohol) but even after one beer Ill feel like I have to throw up..

And I used to be scared of heights, well I still am to an extent, but my dad made a comment that makes me laugh whenever Im in a high place.. he said "It isnt the height that scares me or even the fall, its the sudden stop at the bottom" Thought I would share that

And in responce to a post a few up, not all phobias are caused by a tramatic childhood event.. what tramatic childhood event would cause a klepto to start snatching things? or cause someone to be scared of peanut butter being stuck to the roof of thier mouth?

I have the fear of throwing up, i dont know what caused it, but whenever my stomach starts hurting i start sweating and my heart beats fast. which makes my stomach hurt more.. and when i have a single beer, i get the feeling, i hate it because i cant even drink with my friends..

and i am mildly afraid of heights, but what helps me is i think of something my dad told me and it makes me giggle alittle. he said "it isnt the heights that scares me or even the fall, its the sudden stop at the bottom" thought i would share that

oh and to the post a couple up, not all phobias are caused by an abusive childhood.. yeah some are, but hello, read about them.. let me guess you are the type that says homosexuality is a mental disorder and it can be cured with drugs.. HAHA

Hypochondria is actually the belief that one is sick without any actual presence of illness. In Munchausen syndrome, the person either fakes, creates or deliberately alters medical tests in order to gain attention. Munchausen by proxy generally occurs in caregivers who will deliberately make their charges ill in order to receive attention.

i think i have a fear of being attacked wich sucks cuz i work the night shift at a hotel-alone. and at night before i leave i have to take the trash out to the dumpster and i have t lock the door behind me and the whole way there (not a very long walk AT ALL) i feel like someone is hiding around the corner ready to grab me and the whole way back i feel the same way then if i cant get the key in fast enough or if i turn it the wrong way and dont realise it and i dont get the door open quick enough i get even more scared. and i have severe anxiety, i have panic attacks that cause my chest, shoulders, neck, jaw, and arms to hurt, like a boulder is crushing me, ive actually bee nto the hospital over it

i have Apiphobia. fear of bees. and i'm not just one of those "i dont like bees because they sting you" people. whenever i see one i get really scared, even if its far away, or just a bumble bee. even if they couldn't sting, i'd still be afraid of them.

I have sleep paralysis. When you are dreaming your body brain has to paralyse your body so that you dont act out the dream and hurt yourself. sleep paralysis is when your body stays paralysed when you wake up (or in my case just before you fall asleep). its realy scary because you cant move a muscle for about 3-4mins (it seems alot longer tho) and you also holucinate while its happening, my last one was a man sat in the shadows of my room laughing at me. Thats pretty crazy

I don't know if this is common but I have social anxiety disorder. I worry a lot and try to control it around different people, even have trouble sleeping. It really sucks.
