    I'm addicted to someone who is terrible for me

    I met someone online a bit over a year ago and he has been pretty terrible for me. At first he acted like he had feelings for me, pictures were exchanged, phone calls were made, promises of visits began, it seemed great. Until I learned that it was actually all a lie and he was just using me to...

    Depressed about life

    Apologies, this could be a bit of a ramble and will probably make me sound like a complete disaster zone... I wasn't quite sure where to post this post but the depression forum feels like the best fit. I don't feel suicidal at the moment, it's more a general sort of misery with life. I'm...

    Hello I am new here too!

    Hi, I am a Schizophrenic, and don't have people I can talk too freely. I heard about this site and I hope to be able to get support and help others too if need be. I no longer see the mental health services, so this site may prove to be a bit of a life-line as I am all alone with this now.

    Rexulti - the good the bad the ugly?

    Heya folks, I'm after patient experiences of taking Rexulti. I am currently prescribed 4mg as well as my depot injection (80mg flupenthixol). So far so good, it has really curbed my paranoia and my visual hallucination (the redman) are gone. My auditory hallucinations are almost gone too...

    New Diagnosis of Schizoaffective Disorder

    I normally post in the schizophrenia forum as that is what I was diagnosed with. However I went to see my doctor today and she now thinks because of my depressive episodes and sometimes of elated mood she has changed my diagnosis to schizoaffective. I am to start lithium next week after some...

    So fragile

    I am terribly fragile I can't take any kind of stress. I've been thinking about self harm all day. Spending the whole day trying to distract myself I did do a tiny bit. I just feel in pain (inside) all the time.

    Unsure about how "open" to be at work

    Afternoon all, I'm posting to ask, or get a gauge on how wise it'd be to open up about certain parts of my mental health. I'm recently promoted into a job, my boss is great and supportive of my progression. Work has known for a while I get mad levels of anxiety, and my confidence is in bits...

    I think I'm actually enjoying something. ( Hitchhiker's Guide)

    Hi I know you guys don't know me. But I feel like sharing a bit. I hope nobody Minds. But the last couple of weeks I was going through some sort of dysphoric mania depression thing. But hopefully it's coming to an end. My doctor added antipsychotic and it seems to be helping somewhat. I hope it...

    How do you control your thoughts

    All I constantly can think about is not wanting to be here anymore and sex. I know there is more out there. I am bipolar I think I have a bit of hypersexual episodes as well. What do I do?

    Schiz at night and sleep...

    Does anyone get voices really badly at night when they are trying to sleep? I take zolpidem sleeping tablets twice a week, they get me to sleep fairly well but on the days I do not take them it takes me a bit longer to drop off. I get bad insomnia and sometimes that combined with the voices can...

    I just confessed!

    I told a friend about my past addiction to a stimulant. Felt weird. Can’t tell if he was really ok about it, he kind had f seemed ok, but looked a bit awkward. Fuck, part of it is I don’t care anymore.

    Today, some posh kid tried to mug me off.

    I don't go out much, as I " look vulnerable":rolleyes: And I am, it's true. A "little old lady", these days, as I shuffle along. We went to the local Co op today. It's a safe place, the staff are kind, and don't diddle me. Husband parked up, I said to him, "don't fuss, I'll only be a minute."...
