    Mental Health Assessment

    Went to the doctor's today for my mental health assessment. As usual I sort of froze up and hid behind my walls. I had to recall some upsetting things that had happened over the last year and it felt like I was caught back in the trap of dwelling. He prompted me to discuss in more depth what had...

    Worrying over stupid things

    Had a bad bout of anxiety yesterday. I keep worrying over silly little things, and I try as best as I can not to talk about it and deal with it myself, but I confided in someone I know who also suffers with anxiety. They were really understanding and assured me I was worrying over nothing, which...

    Old Demons Resurfacing

    It's been a while, last posted around 6 years ago. Some old demons have resurfaced due to some life changes and unexpected obstacles, and it's really ramped up the anxiety. Up until the last year, it was more my depression that was the problem. Had a few years of doing ok, not necessarily fully...

    I miss my anxiety.

    I used to have terrible social anxiety. I wanted to die so bad because of it. However, this year I’ve gotten so much better. There was a point where I was truly normal. I got nervous sometimes but it was just, like, normal person nervous I think. I was so so happy. However, lately I’ve been...

    Is this dissociation?

    Hello! I’ve had (social) anxiety as well as OCD for years now, and I’m finally getting my life back. It’s great, but I’ll still have serious mood shifts where I’m super happy and then go down to feeling depressed super quick. I can have a lot of breakdowns, where I don’t think straight and am in...

    Pros and Cons of having Mental Health Team

    I am starting to realise that mental health teams are really more of a hindrance than a benefit. They don't do anything worthwhile and they just fob people off with excuses and bad attitudes. My psych doctor called me a "bully" cos I disagreed with his opinion, not something I expected from a...

    Does anyone else get anxiety about medication availability?

    I take 50mg Desvenlafaxine, I used to be lower income and not have insurance, fortunately I now have a steady job and insurance but I obsessively count my pills and whenever I get below a months supply I freak out and feel the need to get more. Has anyone else experienced anything similar?

I still have compulsions. But I sometimes want him to go away so I can not have the anxiety and obsessions I have around...

    Great anxiety over appearance all the time, mentally exhausting.

    Hi. Bit of a long post, but please bare with. There's a good chance I have body dysmorphic disorder (Not self-diagnosed as such, long story). I'm going to be referred to a psychiatrist soon for a diagnosis and treatment, but I wanted to reach out before then as well. I used to be normal in...
