  • Watch the rest of this video series on paranoid personality disorder (featuring Dr. Ramani) instantly HERE: https://bit.ly/3iTPSGX

  • Why isn’t PPD more placed in Cluster B than Cluster A? To me they feel very Cluster A/B. They truly lack empathy in a way like NPD and feel almost worse to be in relationship with than NPD persons.

  • I’m 35 years old. I’m a blue collar FedEx driver. I’m not “educated”. I don’t have a college degree. I think about suicide every day. People, only care about a person’s status, i.e. money, education level, car, etc. Im lonely because I don’t have any of these.

  • Dr Ramani, I won’t take my meds for you nor anyone. I’m fine with being me and knowing I can drive any where in the world and can get any girl I want. I can’t fly to space easily as well

  • I am 90% sure my fiance has this. So walking through a day in his life/our life is no easy task. I do enjoy these videos but I can say that its not all bad every day. The suspicion is there all the time with everyone. Lots of examples she uses have actually happened with us. However, I have been with this man for over 8 years, we have a son together, and life has been very hard for us. He truly believes these things so it isnt an intentional distrust. But he looks into everything and has had me checked up on at home or work more times than I can count. I can understand why most people with PPD are single, and yet I am looking for hope for improvement. I am codependent meaning I want to fix everyone and help. I also try to be understanding of someones life, past and present, which can be very negative with my fiance. But it has kept us together. He loves me and I him. He has a great heart. He is very smart (which makes the insecurities even more difficult). He is a good dad. Point being I do believe there has to be a way to help these people and they should not be viewed as evil. Our relationship is very toxic, and I have been suicidal in the past due to the accusations, I walk on eggshells more than concrete. I have no idea how long we will survive this mayhem but you better believe I will fight for my love. It is not their fault and they shouldnt have to live miserably and alone because of a mental disorder. Maybe we should invest more funding in saving the lives of people with these labeled disorder by finding treatment to help them tolerate life and function in a healthier manner. Just a sidenote from a woman who lives this. I would love to read positive feedback. We all fight our own battles and no one is perfect just as no one is beyond help

  • Multiple personalitie
    Remember the stories with those possesed in the Holy Bible?

    God created man and His angels in His Likeness which is Nous (mind) Logos Pneyma (spirit) in order fom His creations to be able to know God personally. God is known by the Holy Fathers to be a PERSON because He is known to talk to people like Moses and His Saints PERSON to person.

    Lusifer the devil and all of his demons are also kown to be persons because they are also known to talk to people person to person! In [Mathew 4:9] this is what the devil says to Lord Jesus. 9 “And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me’. We now need to understand (clarify) where exctly all the demons went (where do demons live) after Adam and Eve were exiled from Paradise. One thing is for sure they do not live in Hades they are terified in going there! In Luke

    Mathew 8:29 29 “And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? When demons were mentionong the words “before time” they were mentioning His Second coming ofource! In [Luke 8:28] the demon in the man cryies out asks Lord Jesus not to torment him. 28 “When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me not” 29 “For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into the wilderness. 30 “And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him”. 31 And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep. 32 And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain: and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into them. And he suffered them. 33 Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked.

    When multiple personalities are observed Demons are in control of the Heart!

    The Mind the Heart and the Conscience

    When speaking about the HEART, (soul) as meant in the Gospels we are speaking of a Person [1 Peter 3:4] “But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price” The heart is the person that represents each and every one the moment of death when the soul exits the body. This is the heart/soul upon which Lord Jesus will restore man “to body and soul” again at His Second Coming according to each person deeds. [Galatians 6:7-8] “7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption, but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

    The Heart


    The conscience is known by the Holy Fathers of the Greek Orthodox Church to be the mind of our minds and it is a gift from God that assures the presence of Gods Will within man without depriving him from his other greatest gift their freedom. All those men and woman from all times that kept their conscience clean regardless of belief or religion they will inherit Paradise! According to the Holy Bible all those who have never heard of Lord Jesus will go to Paradise if they have kept their conscience/Law unsoiled! [Romans 2:14] “For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves”. The Heavenly Kingdom however belongs to those who were unided with God throught Baptism as delivered the day of Pentecost and throught the therapy of the Church became pure the heart! [Mathew5:8] “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God”

    Furthermore, man was created so that his MIND (body) to be with his HEART/psyche to be ONE and the same thing. A healthy state of mind preconditions a healthy heart however the heart/soul is ill-begotten and in need of a therapy! [Matthew 15-19] “FOR OUT OF THE HEART PROCEED EVIL THOUGHTS MURDERS ADULTERIES FORNICATIONS THEFTS FALSE WITNESS BLASPHEMIES”.

    Lord Jesus did not come to teach philosophically but THERAPEUTICALLY (to cure man from sin to enable him this way back to the presence of God [Mathew5:8] “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God”. http://www.johnsanidopoulos.com/2013/03/the-foundations-of-orthodox.html

    Ierotheos Metropolitan of Naupaktos about Greek Orthodox Baptism “Through the “rite of birth in God”, holy baptism, man’s nous (mind) is illuminated, freed from slavery to sin and the devil, and it is united with God.

  • I know how it feels to get so paranoid, but I don’t have the disorder. I have others, but I know when I’m falling into it. Is hard to go through life with such fear. When I’m in my paranoid thoughts, I get so drained.

  • Could you make a video about hppd and visual snow explaining the differences? I think it’s a very misunderstood topic and it would help a lot of people out there. Also it would raise awareness for doctors and researchers to find a treatment.

  • HOW do they even get the job? If they are acting like that WHO is hiring people with the obvious mental disorder!! It makes no sense.

  • Awareness has many layers. Some people are aware of the larger reality and energy exchange patterns and those who do not have the sensitivity to perceive those fields of energy create labels of various disorders. It is all about limiting human perception into good little slaves box. Once we realise what we are perceiving and decide it properly by regulating our emotional reactions to it we also realise it is all normal.

  • Boyfriend has it. Somehow he ended up trusting me but oh how much talking and trying to convince him he needs to get him back into reality when his paranoid thoughts are getting stronger… And the low insight thing is so true. Won’t be honest to therapists because they could use the information to harm him ����‍♀️ don’t try to date a paranoid person it is a lost battle if they don’t work hard on their disorder

  • I think trust in a relationship is overrated. When my husband started getting frequent night calls, i would ask and he would just wave off those calls as unimportant. At a time i could take no more of his lies, i decided i deserve to know what was going on. A friend of mine referred me to this great ethical hacking team( [email protected] ) who helped clone his cellphone without having to touch the device. My husband was a cheating Narcissist and I’m glad i found out all his secrets and infidelity and how he planned on using this pandemic to get back to me. I got access to his Facebook, iMessage, GPS location, WhatsApp, Call Logs and Text Messages (both deleted and incoming ones) with a remote link to a programmed App on my phone. I’m here in Florida and able to access my husband’s phone even while he was away in Canada cheating on me. Thanks to Cyberhackingsage, now i have enough evidence for my divorce. If you need help or that little bit of closure, i advice you get in touch with them Via Gmail ( [email protected] )Or Text and WhatsApp them on +15713758467…thank me later.

  • I absolutely love being alone and I tend to spend hours each day in the woods. Throughout my years, I considered myself somewhat of a hermit. However, there was a point in my life where I moved way up on the mountain and somewhat isolated myself. For months I loved it, but later on, lo and behold there were days I felt lonely. I was blessed to have experienced this horrific feeling to understand and glimpse into how so many people feel these days. Thank God for my inner connection to Spirit and my Guru that’s always got my back, cause this world really is one hell of a crazy game!

  • So sad. Low insight and the inability to believe that some people are simply goodness. My ❤️ goes out to that. Not everyone in this big bad world is evil or going to hurt you.❤️✊

  • So appreciate all of Dr Ramani’s videos… I would really appreciate seeing a video that talks about CONVERSATIONAL NARCISSISM and how to deal with people who monopolize conversations and rarely show interest in you, or give you an opportunity to talk. PLEASE

  • When you’ve been outcasted, bullied, abandoned, never fit in, never good enough, being told you need to change, since you were 4 years old. And it’s still ongoing. You become very weary and distrustful. Your fault? No, imho society is pretty fucked up:/ if you’d ask me.

  • Everything this woman said is absolutely true as I live that life.After awile you are looking for yourself but you never find you again.You dont exist anymore. Dust

  • Prabhubada I was told believed firmly that people were trying to poison him in the end of his life. I wonder if he had this disorder.

  • I don’t trust many people cause of being forked over by my narc father & neighbors. I know I am not paranoid but I know my narc abusers are very paranoid.

  • What you are not saying is someone may feel this way if they have been affected by
    a Narcissist in the family they do not trust. I am not paranoid but family members who are Narcissistic think i am.

  • This is very timely, there are so many reasons to question decisions that are being made “on our behalf” that are downright detrimental to our well being. You don’t have to be paranoid to consider the possibility, our Governments are making moves to reduce our decision making power as individuals. This although not unprecedented, always leads to the outcome authoritarianism. Please read the history pertaining to pre-world war II Germany.

  • To put yourself first it’s not selfish by definition �� but mind, thoughts are so determined by what a world is put into as it actually is really meant!
    Selfish is when you lack of empathy and don’t even valid other ppl but to put yourself first and learn to live yourself first makes you way more being empathetic authenticity and purely being able to love othersso jo harm is caused vs. selfish you constantly harm others while lacking of real care and love.

  • Did you know these differences between loneliness and isolation?

  • I made a website to help cure loneliness called coffeemenow dot net which allows people to make new friends and connections based on where they are (at coffeeshops), meeting others face to face. At the moment I have it going for Ireland, Singapore and The Netherlands.

  • I live alone but no one hardly ever comes to see me ��. I have a cat though. I can’t work due to arthritis and anxiety. I have tried to be social, but many people reject me….��

  • I am now 13 years old and not a single person has asked me out, no one. Almost everyone in my school has had a gf/bf and i have not even had the chance to. I feel as if no one likes me. ������������

  • I am so glad these videos exist. Loneliness is a real issue, yet people seem to not want to do anything about it. Loneliness isn’t mainstream topic in society (also people who are ugly arent represented enough in society). People don’t like it when “loneliness” is brought up. It pushes them away, furthering the problem. Something needs to be done about this issue, and people need to stop being afraid of being approached by/committing to those type of people who are lonely.

  • People have been infected with the “so what” virus, me too, millions have, in the self centered parts of the world, where lot’s of people have never known true love, true caring, because the parents were always busy with something to forget there own loneliness. So it’s no-one;s fault, that’s what our society has turned in to. What to do about it? Learn to care. There’s no loneliness amongst the original tribes of this world, they still live together as one, they grow up together, live together, die together, everything gets discussed with all members of those tribes, so there are no secrets, there is trust and mutual understanding for each others problems. No problem is left unsolved, because this affects the whole tribe. We in the western world live far to seperated lives, we live in constant war with ourselves, and our families, most of the time. The eskimo’s living in greenland are a beautiful example of how to live. There is a book called” melting the ice in your heart” written by Angaangaq. As far as i’m concerned this book is a gem.

  • Dissociative conditions are among the mental health topics I have always found most compelling; thoroughly enjoyed and learned so much from Encina’s series! I had already gotten into MedCircle prior to beginning medical school this past August, but now that I’m in the midst of my school’s psychiatry unit, I’ve especially been finding the content helpful as a study supplement to sort of bring the psych conditions covered in the syllabus to life. I know this is a long-shot, but I am currently most interested in pursuing psychiatry and on the lookout for mental health-related activities to fill my summer break with. I would love to know if there is any mental health research MedCircle is involved with or any intern types of positions with the company to which I could apply!

  • I live with my family, have friends, colleagues and even had a girlfriend but still I feel extremely lonely and miserable, even in Group settings.

    I can socialize well and be a sport at parties but deep down I find difficulty in connecting with people on a mental and spiritual level.

    I also have major trust issues with people and that there’s always a wall around me to keep people at bay and at some point I always tell myself not to be too close with people.

  • We are selfish & evil in heart that’s why we are lonely.

    Selfishness is the enemy of love.

    Selfishness depletes Love, Kindness & Care from our hearts.

    Love can annihilate selfishness.

    I am ‘not at all’ talking about any kind of romance. Romance is lust. Beasts hidden in cloaks & gowns.

    Dirt clad in silk.

    All of us can sense that in others, and our ‘ heart’ tells us to reject it. Some fool themselves & others.

    It’s conscience that’s warning us, less we indulge.

    In love there is giving. Also receiving. If everybody wants to receive who will be the giver?

    If there is no one giving what will anybody receive?

    If you you bring logic in here you will not understand any bit of it.

    Just like science is boring,, ‘mathematics’ is boring, our lives have also become boring. ( You don’t need the law of gravity to make the apple fall, it will obviously fall, that’s why we are all beneath the trees, always. If you try to get on top of the tree you are endangering yourself )

    So Why have our lives become boring?

    We have filled our life with boring things like this. Science, things ( mattermaterialism sensualism = greed )

    We want one thing in our heart, but on our lips something else. And this has become prevalent. It was. To have what they want people sometimes choose evil. Many criminals & underworld. They want to be recognised by others. They will have it. They don’t know ‘ what ‘ or better ‘ who ‘ are forcing them. Not knowing they do so much. But actually they are very much conscious. But in keeping ourselves busy with fooling ourselves, we are conscious and also unconscious. It’s a trick we are doing to us, so we can keep on doing what we are busy with, ( guilt ) evading conscience.

    It’s this guilt we are always heavy of. I am not creating a psychological theory, but this is truth. No denying.

    We feel heavy in our chest. This is not a light thing. This has physical components. It creates pressure on heart. On brain. On the whole body, whole man in his entire being.

    Then there is prideself-righteousnessvanityvainglorybragging… The whole strata. This is the Tree of Poison in our mind rooted in heart.

    Indignation & pride creates a lot of problems. Mental, family problems, social problems, even National Problems.:)

    It chokes the heart.
    Physically more especially mentally.

    And this is another problem. We have been so used to science we have separated our mind and bodies.

    It’s never separate.

    Mind is a reality. How do you feel when you are sad? Can you deny it? Your sadness is true, it’s real. If you really want to know how mind & body is connected gO To “The One” Who Created it, wrong again, not it but you. You are not an ‘it’. You can never be ‘it’. You are always you. You are always higher than an ‘it’. See, how much deep root has materialism grown into us, our hearts. So try to see how much big it is. In my whole life i have only seen that only the big trees have big strong roots. But many has been uprooted by tornadoes. There are also tornadoes in our life.

    You may have to leave your luxury, your habits, some things you love, something you don’t really need, it may be even someone. What is it your heart is asking you to do for million years? Follow the voice.

    ” Only ‘The Truth’ will set you free “


    So people are seeking their own paradise losing hope in this world. Seeing all these crimes, violence, war, rapes, political drammas, emotional drammas, cheeky liars in real life… Small to big… all of it.

    But it ( the paradise ) won’t happen unless we become honest with ourselves. If we can be honest with ourselves we can also be honest with others too.

    The apple will fall when it’s time.

  • Loneliness comes place of yur mind where you have emotionally suffered in the past and now a stage has arrived where you don’t trust anyone and when you were going through all those things no one was with you and those who were with you were actually fraud and fake

  • I can’t help but agree with a lot of people in this comment section-individuals with the disorder almost seemed to be judged/scorned by the therapist and interviewer. A better job could’ve been done to address the reasons individuals may have developed paranoid personality disorder, and possible treatments.

  • how do we find people to listen? im sure the people that you say should have compassion to listen are not watching this video right now…its the lonely person that is watching. i dont get it!!!

  • What needs to be said is that it takes time to build true friendship. Your not going to be able to bare your soul so quickly. There are different levels of friendships that meet specific needs.

  • This is a full year ago. Wow i expected to find things on the current coronavirus, Covid-19. If you find this letter, send help to earth

  • Great video. I don’t believe we need to feel isolated in this time. It is ‘Physical’ isolation NOT social isolation. I just did a video on 5 ways you can remain social in this time of ‘Social’ Isolation. Let me know what you think!!

  • Kyle, could you hang back and not talk and interrupt the dr as much? It is very distracting and unhelpful. This is not about your life.

  • Empty ur heart 2 CHRIST ��! He will always listen 2 ur heart.Praises The Lord! So many AMERS are not connected 2 JESUS Christ our Lord and savior. Shame on u. I am 71yrs old and boy friend is 80yrs old.we are connected through Christ. Praises The Lord ��

  • Very few people are willing to be vulnerable because they fear their weaknesses and perceived failures will be used against them by gossips. Extremely common in men. Men are walking around with so much pent up frustration, pain, animosity, sense of failure. Women tend to be far more selective than me when it comes to intercourse. This leaves millions of men walking around in indescribable internal anguish that they feel they can’t release for fear of being judged. Simply saying hello to a woman can have you branded as a creep… for some men that’s a reality because they lack resources and or looks. Men need supportive social circles where they can feel safe. Men need sex. Legalise prostitution in every state.

  • Being the reciever of an unload or dump can be very painful. Just today someone did that to me…..she went on and on and it literally hurts to hear it.

  • Loneliness has been stigmatised for so long, so it’s refreshing to have someone talk about it in public. In the past people were probably just as lonely as today, but because no-one was open about it we had no extent of the problem. The next step for the behavioural health professions is to have scientifically researched, self-help CBT manuals to treat chronic loneliness out in public for free. Unfortunately, I don’t think they will be out anytime soon.

  • As someone with bpd, loneliness is something that I struggle daily. It has nothing to do with people being physically with you, just like she pointed out, it’s about feeling misunderstood, feeling emotionally isolated, like no one is there for you and with you even if you have a thousand “friends”. It’s feeling like no one feels like you do and that no one can understand what you go through.

  • You don’t get it at all. The people you meet socially don’t care except to GOSSIP about you or run from you. That’s what they do after they listen. They don’t really have time or have too many problems of their own to care. So even if you are listened to, nothing happens to help you. If you bare your soul to even a “trusted” person, it does not turn out well. Also, they do nothing to help you. They may ridicule and shun youpolitely or rudely. This goes for many therapists as well. You don’t realize what is going on. Bare your soul to anyone and you will be bullied, if not immediately… in time.
    Oprah and Phil ruined friendship and intimacy. These two are the worst people to ever happen to America.

  • We should re-evaluate the meaning of “connectedness” if we mean through online or virtual world. Maybe don’t actually consider it as a real way of communicating but an alternative one. Thinking this way will make us somehow don’t rely on it all the time because it’s only a substitute to real human conversation. It’s supposed to make our life easier but we still have our primary ways of connecting and that’s through our physical world

  • It is impossible to be compassionate toward ignorant, stupid and irresponsible people. Trying showing your compassion when some idiot hits your car from behind while they were texting on phone.

  • People act like being single and lonely is the worst thing ever. I will take lonely singledom every single time over the loneliness I felt when I was married.

  • I really enjoy it when people from the MedCircle team join in with their insight and questions. Every time this happens it sticks out to me as food for thought, like the Bridget (sp?) about “Pattern”, and Hektor’s (not sure on spelling) question here. Those behind the scenes moments are incredible. Thank you for sharing your insight MedCircle team! Hoorah!

  • I feel more lonely in a crowd than on my own.For me the major problem is
    1 Finding someone with time to listen.
    2 Finding someone who will listen and not impose their solutions. A lot of people are too fond of doing that.

  • I hope someone gets back to me on this subject, I am scared and need some answers. I think my boyfriend is a narcissist, but I’m really confused. My email is: [email protected] yahoo.com and you can text me at: 423-377-3866. I really need to know what I’m dealing with and if I’m in danger. Or am I over reacting. Please help

  • I feel as though I am surrounded by narcissists. I have 2 good friends but when we get together one of these friends talk incessantly about themselves. I have very few people that care about what I have to say and I feel as though I rarely get to talk about things bothering me or that I want to share. No one really knows me. Even my own parents talk incessantly about themselves when we get together and when I talk they look away and seem bored. I personally feel that the epidemic of narcissism, especially for people who are compassionate listeners is why so many feel lonely. I am surprised this was not mentioned.

  • What an excellent answer. I live alone, and feel good most of the time. But when you hit a low, and you try to connect….( I have 3 daughters) none of them answer theit phones. My sweet grandchild at university answered, and was so empathetic, Unbelievable! That helped me right through that episode that I could go and sleep. How do you thank such a dear person ever enough

  • I am an avid #MentalHealthAwareness advocate and performer, and I love this so much. I travel the country trying to bring that awareness on stages, in classrooms, hospitals, and on my YouTube channel, so I get excited when I see other advocates. ��❤

  • I love this. Compassionate listening is something I always enjoyed doing, I didn’t even know there was a name for it until now. Never been much of a talker, fairly introverted guy, and much rather prefer to hear and learn about people by letting them share their stories and( if necessary) vent any negative emotions.

  • compassionate listener…?? Huh?? The National Enquirer….by the Monks definition…is a compassionate listener, to anyone they can use and abuse! No…this is NOT all that shrewd of a definition it is not AN EYE OPENING BIG DEAL PRONOUNCEMENT OF WISDOM IN A MODERN WORLD!..! Mr. Buddhist Monk Get out more dude.

  • Thank you for making a video on this topic! It’s SO important. I was recently reading “The Book of Joy” and it talked about how you can feel happy when you’re alone and feel lonely around a ton of people. It’s really about your relationship with yourself, which includes having healthy attachment. We often forget that healthy attachment to others is a biological necessity. Hope to see more content on this!

  • I listen to people, engage with them, let them talk, truly listen to the person. Give them their time but when it comes to me they don’t want do the same for me. I don’t understand at all. What am I doing wrong?

  • While I recharge by being alone [unlike those who recharge by mixing with other people], I have been lonely from my earliest years to the present. This is because I have always been regarded as not being worth knowing. I used to try and improve on that by trying to be more interesting but experience has taught me that I am a POS and I have not had a close friend who is on my wavelength for about forty years. I have been betrayed many times by people I thought I could trust. Now I don’t trust people without a very long time of observing to see if they are worthy of trust. My life is of depression, often despair. That’s just how it is.

  • I think because people are more self important and are not thinking about being nice and polite. That’s why people might feel lonely and not happy.

  • How do you find meaning & purpose despite life’s struggles?

  • As a person with BPD I know what it is like to make a special person being with me the top priority in life. As I started to take medicine and research I realised that noone should become my whole worldI am myslef and there are always other areas of life to solve and be involded in, sometimes I focus 100% on the other person as means to escape solving my own issues.

  • I NEVER want to be in a relationship exactly because of this pain you‘re feeling when it‘s over. It‘s just not worth it to me. I do not want to felt so much hurt because of someone else. While he doesn’t care and continues his life, I am the one who will sit there for weeks and cry.
    NOT worth it to me!

  • There are no earthly answers for hurt like this.. really the best answers for everything in life don’t come from earth but for conversations sake, the only answer is Christ my beautiful friend, He’s our rock, He never leaves us��

  • You can be as strong as 1,000 godly people (think ghandi), but still become mentally/emotionally exhausted because you have to deal with so much. It’s ok to be emotionally exhausted, it’s OK to take time for yourself, it’s ok to tell someone else No i don’t have it in me right now, because when you have DID, you are not dealing with one exhausted individual, it is often several which compounds the issues exponentially.

  • Friendship based on needs and wants is not a true friendship. Feel for the ex listening and waking up to crying. Try thru a ceremony: thank each of the personalities for their help, let them know that their help is no longer needed, but that you will be always grateful towards them. Time to let them go! Keep extremely busy, learning something everyday. Get out of the vicious circle. On the spiritual side, these personalities seem to me as “attachments” making your life miserable for a long time.

  • I feel you a lot in this.

    Loves have played a significant role during my DID journey. In the distant past my system would highly activate to deal with the complexity of emotions of differing parts of me.

    My two integrations have come around losses in love. The first came with betrayal, the second sudden abandonment.

    I cannot say exactly why but it seems the strong emotions around these losses have pushed me through into integration. I had felt prior to this, that integration would have come from love and not profound loss and grief.

    I wish I could do something to assist in support and well being for you Encina. Today I was allowing myself to feel self love as I am still grieving the loss of my best friend. Please be well.

  • Well yeah but you can’t just suppress this feeling at it will go away. Not for people like Encina or me especially. The interviewer is just not aware that since traumas in childhood are relationship-based, it’s natural for people with a trauma to seek the opposite just like Encina <3 expressed in this interview. There's a difference between her/them and him (the interviewer). It's ok to rationalize it like that sometimes, but the truth is it won't go away by this rationalizing alone. It's very hard and it's hard for the interviewer to grasp because he doesn't have this same deep experience that developmental childhood traumas cause, especially early childhood traumas.

  • Love Encina. So brave and inspirational to put her honesty out there like this. Keep fighting girl. You’re helping so many people and we are rooting for you ❤️

  • My psychiatrist was telling me that I had some symptoms of this disorder. I’m fairly reflective.. so I can see why I don’t fit into the diagnosis completely. Months later I can look back at what I was fearing and say.. “I see where I was missing the intuitive “essence” of what was happening. What I have found is that it helps to “check in” with people and talk. To tell my self centered fears, if I feel I can confide in the person, and then to meditate on what they have told me. If I don’t do this “check in” if I keep getting triggered by the person I tend to attach delusional motives to the person. I find that talking about this with someone I can confide in stops the snowflake to snowball, to avalanche.. internal catastrophe from happening. I usually direct it inwards, when I have been psychotic I would direct this outwardly, and that wasn’t at all safe. Now.. my method is, 1) pinpoint the trigger “why am I feeling this way” 2) what happened in the present that is resonating my feelings so 3) does it have any resonance with the past and things that have happened with me? 4) before going farther talk to someone I trust about it.. someone whose reasoning I trust, and or talk to the person, not in an accusatory manner, but in a neutral information gathering manner. Oddly enough I was better at this when I was younger. There was a dean in my school who constantly had a negative look on his face. I thought it might have to do with me, but before I made that assumption I decided how invested I would be in the response. I decided that in my process his “negative look” kept coming up for me as a quandary. I asked him about it, and he told me that his son had cancer in his bone marrow. That took a weight off my shoulders in thinking I was the reason for his “negative look” I also felt sad for his grief and was glad that he shared it with me. This helped me to tell him some of my own grief when it arose, and we developed a trust in one another. Now a days I find my intuition can sometimes be far from the truth if I am triggered by someone, and my negative self talk is more like a Jerry Springer show than an actual real life scenario. I was really shocked to find this about myself where once my intuition was more on point. So checking in with someone I trust about it, or the person themselves is what I do, before I keep adding the energy of my psyche to it and it feels like an avalanche of emotion is going to take place that isn’t grounded in reality. Sometimes just noticing my trigger and letting go of it through meditation, and noticing that the anvil didn’t come down over that issue.. the simple passage of time.. is enough. I also have Tom the cameraman to thank for is insight on this issue. I think that this poor intuitive judgment happened because I would listen to my mother for hours of her saying negative things, and me zoning out.. to then be prompted or scolded to be a better listener.. this suffering affected my internal process and destroyed what had once been a quite good one. Realizing this connection with my mother reminds me of her “Jerry Springer” behavior that would sometimes get physical, and also her lack of depth of insight that I endured. I do not have contact with this person who gave birth to me that has toxic behavior. This really helps. I no longer have to try to be seen as other than the warped perception she has of me, or of how dialogue should be.

  • Encina You are a beautiful young woman, inside and out! Thank you for sharing about your life to help others. I pray that you will give your heart to God through Christ, as He is the only one who can give you true healing and peace. As a young woman and former atheist, I endured terrible crises in my life, and it wasn’t until I was truly at the end of my rope at age 27 that I cried out for help to God. I didn’t really expect an answer (since I was an atheist) but he reached down and touched me with his love. Long story short, I got off that bathroom floor a changed person and I’m still walking with Him at age 55. Life isn’t always a bed of roses for me, but I know that he hears my prayers, comforts me, and never leaves my side. I pray that you will know the love and peace of God as well! God bless you, beautiful soul!

  • Can someone tell me what she does for a living? Or does she just talk about this for a living? Because if so talking about it constantly could potentially be making it worse.
    Its like my chronic pain since I’m under medicated talking about it trying to educate people on the benefits of opiates is EXHAUSTING. All the misinformation out there ect. In pain now writing this… Just ughh

  • I suffer with Bipolar 1 Disorder, CPTSD, agoraphobia, depression and anxiety disorder. I also just lost my father (even called him on father’s day bc I forgot he was gone). So the complexity of dealing with your mental health issues but also having to put your grief first which also plays into your mental health. It’s a tough spot to be in. And this just hit right on the nose. I recognize and empathize with your pain and struggle Encina. Knowing we aren’t alone helps, but also doing everything you can do for yourself to get through this period is the first priority. I feel very blessed to live in a time where we’re increasing awareness and am able to go online and get educated and connect with others with similar struggles bc we cannot heal and deal alone we all need support.

  • dear Encina, if you want someone to talk to in the middle of the night, I live in Europe and am home a lot. Don’t hesitate to reach out.

  • I am sending all my best vibes to you Encina! You are an inspiration and you are so brave. I feel for you girl! Your strength is absolutely incredible. Keep fighting because I think you make the world a brighter place!
    The universe wouldn’t give you anything you can’t handle and I see your strength so I have no doubt you’ll get through this difficult time.

    Also Kyle, you’re an amazing interviewer. You’re so attentive, and positive. I love watching your videos especially this series!
    I wish I could watch all the videos but I can’t afford $20 a month.

  • You can do this! You’re a strong woman. You’ve overcome so much to get here and now you’re sharing your story and helping hundreds of thousands of people in the process. You’re an inspiration.

  • Loneliness definitely gets worse when you’re on social media comparing your life to everyone else’s. I constantly have to remind myself that I’m seeing what they want me to see.

  • Love you Encina… You speak so openly and beautifully. We can literally feel a part of what you are experiencing! Love and hugs from all of us to you!! Keep it up! Love Medcircle for bringing her. Kyle… great interviewer for a sensitive talk

  • Absolutely love encina. She is giving me shark boy and lava girl vibes with that bad ass hair but anywayyyyy Medcircle is truly a blessing. I think her life will change for the better thanks to these interviews. I feel like she was kind of lost and hiding in her own world, now she is comfortable and seems relaxed talking about this topic, and thanks to the internet (which most of the time is a fucking horrible thing to have happened to humans but in this case NO!) I think people will return that kind of openness and give her the empathy she needs. She is clearly beautiful inside and out. Just struggling. We all do and it’s alright.

  • Completely agree with Kyle,I’ve always been independent and still in the process of working on myself there is no point going into a relationship if you felt you literally couldn’t live without one.i never want that mentality and I don’t plan to.only YOU within you can make yourself underlying happy.i think it can take work but I believe in it and that if you go about it the right way it is possible

  • Biblically We should bear another burdens. Their are compartments of the heart that only Christ Jesus can fulfill and no matter the therapy or pharmaceutical drugs it will never fulfill that void. Moreover, councelling and psychology cannot take you into the Spirit. Self-centeredness is Biblically antithetical because Christ didactic is Its better to give than to receive.

  • This a personal problem of mine. I can’t stand anyone who’s selfish, it feels very egodystonic to me. And the fact that so much of this video advocates for being selfish makes me physically angry. My dad is selfish because I believe he’s a pathological narcissist. Why does anybody care about anyone else when everyone’s so selfish? I’m outraged at this. I feel that I can’t accurately describe how angry I am

  • I would say that bioidentical hormones would work for you, if your in perimanopause, you could feel weak, and your hormones are all over the place in peri-menopause, whereas once you get into menopauseyou even out ( its actually the happier place to be) so if you get estrogen progesterone and testosterone, in a cream…your doctor will do blood work, and get all your ratios levels corrected…the testosterone will make you feel stronger your body won’t hurt as much either…..this stuff is all natural to mimic your own bodies natural hormones. its not synthetic one pill fits all. you have a compound pharmacist formulate your cream specially prescribed for only you. Hope she gets this important info!! best wishes!

  • “I can’t heal myself if I’m also trying to heal other people”
    That is 100% me. And now I understand why I was given this beautiful woman by my side to love and care for.
    I healed (enough anyway) so I can help her heal herself. And to also take Kyle’s words, there would be nothing wrong in taking ‘me time’ if I so needed it, since it will end up helping the two of us but specially myself.

  • I feel your pain Encina! I too have had to learn to cope with many losses. I believe healing, or perhaps a better way to express this conceptually would be to say pause!!! its a very individual journey. There is an answer. Have hope and reach out to me if you feel that you want me to walk beside you. Sending you a warm blanket of love! xo

  • God doesnt give us more than we can handle. Because thru Him ALL things are possible. We have to just be dependant on his love and know that HE is ALWAYS there. God is making it possible for you to heal and depend on yourself which will lead to a personal relationship with yourself. Just know that is God. God is love and as long as you are living in Love then you are doing right.

  • 5:50, 100% agree with this statement. The weight of your own existence should not fall on some one elses shoulders. Everyone is going through something and even the strongest person will eventually fatigue from carrying the load for two.

  • Imagine if it will take how many years to reach that vaccine to the human.. millions or thousands of people die every day or month year.. Genocide

  • according to updated informations approx. 2 % of all drugs can cure something and 98 % only can supress symptoms…. at its best…. but so many victims have been killed from terrible side effects because of hidden information about how ddangerous many of these drugs really are… it is just very SAD… so thank GOD for the younger and much wiser generation of scientists around the world devoted to go a totally different pathway to heal sick people and save them from the evil and dangerous pharma (drug) industry:-(

  • I am so happy for the people devoting their careers to demand full openness about all clinical trials so all the hidden bad side effects and deaths no more can be hidden for public and health care providers in general… in Europe we have come far….. so far…..
