    So screwed up.

    I am absoluely screwed. I've been thinking about suicide. I dont mean to but it comes when i feel bad about myself, low mood etc then the feeling comes back. I am the worst sort, no fight left just want to do what my thoughts are telling me. All of this positive stuff is a farce. I need help. I...

    Do good people have bad thoughts about others?

    I'm very liberal, I try and treat people as I'd expect to be treated myself but I still occasionally get bad or prejudicial thoughts about people based on appearance etc. They occasionally just flash up in my mind and I have to tell myself that's a horrible thing to think. I wonder sometimes if...

    Cold turkey

    So I have come of all my meds for a week now.. I feel utterly rubbish and emotional. Im tired of taking meds all the time and all the side effects. Everyone thinks this is a bad idea and I will crash and burn no one has faith that I can beat this illness without meds. I just feel alone.

    Citalopram withdrawal

    So I'm wondering if anyone else has managed to quit citalopram after having a hard time with it. About a year ago I changed to mirtazapine to help me sleep, and over the course of this year I've gradually reduced my dosage of citalopram. I went from 40mg a day to 10mg every few days, just when...

    Hi-yo, my name is Tom

    Hey folks, I decided to start posting on here because I'm in my 30s now and I deal with constant, massive waves of depression. It's not a constant state, but when it gets bad... it gets so bad. I get very focused on aging and dying and death and endings and it all makes me so incredibly sad...

    You humans are beginning to annoy me

    Time for a mass Extermination I feel. Humans suck the life out of their own species. No other life on this planet does such a thing. We are horrible, a virus that has infected this planet. Too much genuine suffering yet we stand by and watch it happen. Me me me me me. How many times do we...

    How do you feel about yourself?

    I'm not sure how to word the title but how do you feel about yourself? I strongly believe it is impossible to hate yourself. You can be embarrassed by your looks or reflect by how or what others say about you. For instance when I look in the mirror I think, honest to God and not in an arrogant...

    Bad Habits

    Mine was smoking cigarettes, but when I quit I turned to marijuana. When I had to quit that to get a job (and my doctor drug tests for some of the medication I'm on) I turned to alcohol. We're all dependent on something. What's your bad habit?

    Do You Agree With Your Voices Opinion Of You?

    If they say a bad thing is it not something you have thought about yourself before or maybe are likely to? Do you hate yourself? Do the voices therefore hate you? Are the voices wrong about you?

And my boss doesn't help and doesn't want to hear me out. --That and the way she speaks to me about anything about this just sucks. She was...

    I Don't Know What To Do Anymore.

    I'll start by saying that I don't believe I am depressed? I mean there are people who have been through way worse than what I have so I'm not quite sure and I feel bad thinking I am. Regardless, This is about a heartbreak, I know how original. I had been with this person for a while, shit...
