I have a lot of difficulty with my sun-mercury-neptune conjunction (20-21-24' Sag respectively, 10th, 11th and 11th houses). I can't tell what emotions are real and what are not. I make things up, I convince myself of things that aren't true. I manufacture thoughts from somewhere in my brain to decieve myself. Any moments of clarity I have, I overanalyze to death until I no longer recognize them. Phew.

any suggestions?
