Why do some folks (talk therapy world) are adamant against mental health diagnosis?

Is anyone else seeing repeating numbers besides me? I have been seeing multiple numbers every time I look at the clock! 11:11,1:11,2:22, 3:33..etc!

This started on Christmas Eve 2019 after I returned home from surprising a single father with Christmas for his two children - he had been posting his progress in recovery, and had gotten his children back but had no money for presents and an empty apartment ,so I hit my basement for decorations and household items,then stopped at the store for gifts,food and a snack - I brought Christmas to his front door,even a tree ! They came home and shortly after I got videos from the kids, introducing themselves and thanking me- later, after the kids were put to bed, I got one from the father, crying and thanking me for helping a complete stranger in his time of need ! The numbers showed up for the first time that night, and have been coming ever since - EVERY time I look at the clock - what does it mean, I have the distinct feeling something is trying to get my attention , and everything I have read says they are "Angel" numbers sent from a loved one who has passed- has anyone studied numerology to help me interpret the meaning of why I have been chosen to receive this repetitive message? I've even had my transactions total $111.11 and $55.55 - 🤔⏱️🔮👁️⚠️☯️

One, little, thing..

Hi guys - I’ve got something weighing down my heart this evening. Now this weight is nothing new, at all. It’s something that has burdened me since my teens and into adulthood. My rational mind knows better and always has, but. I am so unbelievably threatened when my partners engage with an attractive member of the opposite sex(I am hetero/monogamous). The only sense I can make of these obsessive and compulsive thoughts is my BPD and trauma, but even acknowledging that doesn’t ease the pain. I can remind myself that I as anybody finds other people attractive aside from my partner - this is natural. It’s not even that I don’t trust my partner, I do with all of my heart. I don’t know what it is. The thought of her liking a photo or commenting on socials(I don’t use any form of, which helps considerably) or tells me a story of her day in which she runs into somebody that was cute or which I perceive as flirtatious - sends my nervous system into a state of hell. I don’t get angry with her, or I try not to. I try to approach it with curiosity and openness, trying to understand how normal people remain at peace without devaluing themselves through these comparative threats which we create in our minds.

Does anybody have an tips or tricks on how to self regulate, assure and give into radical acceptance? Thank you in advance, we survived Monday guys.

With love and care,
Lucas B.

Birthday blues

Today is my birthday. But also, it has been exactly 7weeks to the day since my dad died. The depression and grief are crippling. All I want to do is ugly cry.

I’ve been finding myself to be really confused over this past year. Got diagnosed with depression and anxiety in about 6/7 years ago. About 2 years ago added a bpd diagnosis and am suspected of having ocd as well (my dr was a mess so that never got to be explored further - but it fits the bill). Lately, I still feel like I have symptoms that don’t fit in to any of my diagnoses. For example, if the smallest thing goes wrong I have a meltdown (I ran out of an ingredient for a recipe so I can’t make it anymore, my fast food order doesn’t come as specified or they’re out of what I usually order…). I find I also at times get overwhelmed by a lot of noise, I have trouble finding words for things (I’ll just stare blankly at my husband, or replace the word with a hand gesture to describe what I’m trying to get across like if I’m looking for my hairbrush pretending to brush my hair but no words come). I’m always in a state thinking someone close to me is mad at me or hates me. And then sometimes I feel like I’m just putting on an act to appear like a normal girl in social situations (I’m 26 and like to avoid doing things if I can). I’ve taken a bunch of online tests for an asd but my result is always puts me as having about 1/3 of the symptoms, or mild-no symptoms but on the highest side before the results saying I legit have symptoms. Just looking for any thoughts or opinions or if someone else has a similar experience. It’s just so confusing to have symptoms that don’t fit anywhere and then when I do research the symptoms I do have don’t quite fit in anywhere else. I’m horribly messy it’s embarassing, have no routine and I can’t even work lol
