    Coping With Bad Reactions From Others

    Mental Illness: Coping With Bad Reactions From Others "Having a mental illness can be tough enough, but when we’re brave enough to tell people and they have a bad reaction to it, that only serves to validate those horrible thoughts of being a burden, worthless and helpless. In addition to the...

    I have a phobia of dreaming/dreams and its ruining my life

    Disclaimer: I am terrified of being actually physically harmed by my dreams - not the dreams themselves. I am scared that the violent people in my dreams will harm me, and I will wake up with injuries. I remember one small article which I read in some magazine long back had one experiment...

    Frustrated

    I'm going to stay off the forum for awhile. IN addition to the study, I'm in like a manic state. My brain is going a million miles an hour and I'm just not safe. I don't want to say something that will upset someone. I will check in every so often but most likely not post. You have got to...

    Should I or shouldn't?

    My hubby has business in Florida so I thought I'd tag along. But my eye isn't healing so well and I'm afraid of it growing worse while I'm away. In addition my husband will work all and then we have dinner together but this trip has dinners every night and I anticipate feeling lonely. Any input?

    Depression makes one inferior

    Does depression make you inferior? First off, let me ask you this. If you had the choice to either be happy and excited towards something in life as opposed to just having no feelings of pleasure or excitement whatsoever with nothing more than just a good thought towards these things in life...

    Celebs who give Bi-Polar a bad name and discredit the whole picture.

    Flippin Stephen Fry and his so called new book, get this, 'more fool me' and exactly how foolish is he? It should be called all about me and my idiotic narcissitic delve into cocaine addiction? How quaint. Used to think he was ok, done some good TV and is funny. This new venture however, what...

    Brain is giving up.........

    Don't really know where to put this but seems to be more SA related than ED so... went to meetup tonight. Nearly didn't go because I would have preferred to have stayed home and binged. I am getting more and more detached from other people, I can barely participate in the discussion. I know I...

    Maths advice

    Okay first of all I should mention that I had an illness up until recently which lasted 2-4 years, it was a mental illness, and I've heard that with mental illness your memory can fade. That's my excuse for being disgustingly bad at maths anyway. Now that I have recovered, I know that I need to...
