    Light headed/Off balance Feeling?

    I was just wondering if any well else has dealt with this symptom. If I'm going through something stressful I get a bout of lightheadedness/Off balance feeling for about a week or so. It also tends to numb my emotions. Having this makes it very hard to work or do anything for that matter. Just...

    Dizzyness and meds

    I don't know what kind of 'mystical wonders' everyone on this forum believes there anti psychotics do for them, but for me they simply make me feel sick standing and esp. dizzy, that I HAVE to lay down or else stumble around in a daze. The fact that they act on my balance system this way makes...

    My View Of Voices

    I think it can be like balancing two scales. If they say things that are negative and you know that what they are saying is wrong, you have to balance it again. I think it takes time to get the scales in balance again I think that saying it to yourself or writing the reasons why they are wrong...

    Hi all

    I've been on the hunt for a new outlet for my issues, since I haven't been to see my therapist for months now. Not by choice, I've just been too busy with work and home to make time. Besides, everything was going relatively well, so I didn't think it was terribly necessary. That was a mistake...

    Off the ledge

    After 3 days of being happy and hyper and productive I crashed hard yesterday. Sat in a parking lot googling suicide. I know I would never follow through unless the demons got more powerful and convinced me otherwise. A friend came and sat with me. I told her today that she pulled me off the...

    Balance i believe is one if not the most important thing in life. it's important in everything. it's when the balance is wrong that problems are caused. This goes for people, nature, everything.

    Frozen by Indecisiveness...

    Hi, I'm struggling to make sense of everything in my life and what the right choices are... I can dissect every single choice and both in a positive and negative way and it seems that no matter what I choose I will be left feeling guilt and shame for my actions. I feel like I've ruined my life...

    Are Narcissists Born Not Made? Article.

    There’s a saying that some artists or masterful musicians and craftsmen are “born, not made.” In some ways, our DNA imprints much of our future personalities and talents into our human form, but some paths that are followed are created by us, not born into us. Narcissism is one of those traits...

    I think maybe I'm OK now

    Tomorrow I'm going to see the therapist I've been meeting with for the past six weeks and I'm going to tell her I won't be seeing her again. I've been paying her £40 an hour and no - I'm not sure she has truly earned that. She is lovely and she has listened, that is true, but she hasn't offered...
