    I'm worried about psychosis...

    For a bit of background, I've never been diagnosed with mental health problems formally although I've been told variously by my GP that I probably have depression and by other professionals that I probably need counselling and in the case of one individual (Who to be fair was in the final stages...

    What To Do?

    Hi all, Hope someone can help. My sister apparently has BPD. She doesn't live at home but in charity housing and is on benefits. For the last 2 years she has been an utter nightmare. She constantly harasses my mum for money and threatens to kill herself if she isn't given it or she makes up...

    What is going on??

    This is my first post on this site, I’m currently sat at work in one of the changing rooms wondering why I am in the wrong? Why I have done something that I don’t even realise I have done! I’m 26, have a good job, earn decent money, have a beautiful fiancé that has helped me in the past. But...

    Provocation when doing nothing wrong

    Anyone been turned away from a UK hospital/medical centre

    Because of their mental health condition? I was deemed serverly mentally ill with BPD but apparently I'm not too bad and it's things like schizophrenia that they normally exclude.

    EUPD is a dustbin diagnosis.

    This is what the psychiatrist Iam seeing tomorrow said,he told me I don't want to be diagnosed with that as it's seen as a dustbin diagnosis . Yet they have ramped up the support massively Iam getting. Don't really understand that. They are apparently going to do 'graded exposure therapy' for my...

    Does anyone else attend group therapy?

    Thanks to my dual BP & BPD diagnosis I get drugs for the BP (apparently that's all BP people get!) and therapy for my BPD, which is quite complex. I had about 15 months of 1:1 therapy to basically get me ready for group therapy. I am six months into three years of group therapy. There are six...

    disgusted by psyd who claimed to be a specialist in trauma

    I believe I have been exploited by a private American therapist, a Psyd, who takes medicare. Her boundaries were poor and my first intuitive thought was that she liked money. I terminated with her out of fear. I checked the medicare page and she charged me 500.00 per session after the first...

    Help me please, how do I smile again?

    The thing everyone comments on when they meet me is my smile. I'm apparently always smiling and laid back and make people feel better. That was me a couple of years ago. Now I rarely smile, I'm constantly on edge or numb. And I probably make people feel worse because I just ignore them...
