    I have anxiety attacks all the time....

    To get me out of this place and back to where I came from. A sense of normality away from this miserablity. You can choose your friends but not your family! Especially when they say go speak to your social worker! Cheers! Such a great family!

    NDIS experiences

    After 4 months after encountering NDIS I had an interview. They admitted to me they had little to offer for mental health, so don't get your hopes up. Extra psychologist visits beyond your mental health plan already in place was it. I think the ndis is like the nbn, great idea but the liberals...

    is anyone here self employed? I am realistically looking into this as an option as I think I would feel better about myself if I was "employed" and it would be better for my health.. Pitfalls? I would expect my earning to be around about £7000 a year (a bit more than by ESA) so could I get...

    Why can't I just get help from someone!?

    So it turns out you can't even be honest about trying to get help on here. Why do I even bother trying. Well not anymore. I'm feeling suicidal. Cheers admin. I'm assuming I'll get banned now. No surprises there. No one ever wants to get me the help I need.

    At war.

    If i'm not constantly pushing myself forcing myself to go out there, and face up to my fears. Then i'm punishing myself for staying in hiding away. It's easier somehow to be kind to others rather than myself. cheers, supersweep.
