    How the schizophrenic lives a normal life?

    You should not pass a day of your life without achieving accomplishment. How it is done? Try everyday to act as the very healthy do. Do not talk too much, just listen to others. You will discover after a week that you are a completely different person. Congratulations on the achievement.

    Hey y'all

    Hello. I've tried forums before with little luck. It's probably because I am completely not capable of following through with anything. I've been trying to function with mental illness for as long as I can remember. I won't go too deep into my story, I don't think anyone has time for that...

    Not coping lately

    Hi, I’m not really sure what I’m doing here, I’m just going to write what’s in my head. I’ve always been an anxious person, for as long as I can remember. I’ve had good stretches where I barely notice it and bad ones where I’m completely exhausted by it and feel like I just can’t escape from...

    New to this

    Hi all! I have joined in hopes of meeting new people who suffer from terrible anxiety like myself. I have severe fear of speaking in front of people, or being the center of attention. My voice gets shaky, I start to sweat, and I just completely lose it, and I hate that this happens to me. I'm...

    Unusual feelings

    Hi guys, I've been diagnosed with GAD for 5 years now. Recently I've been experiencing a drastic change in my moods though. Usually because of my anxiety, I overly worry about what other people are thinking about me, whether they are talking about me, whether they secretly hate me etc etc but...

    Night Terror

    Hi friends, I have had problems dealing with my husband's work trips for years, they leave me completely distressed and terrified at night, real irrational terror. Each time it is groundhog day, chronic anxiety in the build up, in a mess when he goes, meltdowns, panic attacks and general...

    Down and Out

    Everyday lately I wish I was dead. I'm with this girl who sleeps around yet loves someone else. I'm so desperate for company I give into her. Songs fill my head to help me not completely fall apart. I been just trying go day by day. Very soon I'll be dead at this rate. If someone could say...

    Suicidal thoughts increasing in the last few weeks

    Hi, I'll try to keep it terse. I'm 28, have lifelong anxiety and depression and have been working hard to get my life on track since 19 with little tangible progress. I've been in therapy for more than a year with a psychologist and have tried all the antidepressants (and then some) that the...

    Advice needed

    I'm looking for some advice with quite a frustrating problem I am having. I keep making new email accounts - I've literally made one or two every single day. If I make a new email account and add it to my social media accounts and then don't use my accounts that day, I then for some reason feel...

    Attitudes towards MH at work.

    Hi. New to the forum so apologies if I've missed a related thread already started. I'm wondering what experience others have had at work towards their mental health problems. Personally my experience has been shocking. Colleagues - there is a few that show a personal level of...

    Constant thought of being teased/bullied

    I am 38 year old single male. I am working out of home and last 3 years i have had thoughts of constantly being bullied/teased. I am unable to focus and get distracted by these images. Sometimes i speak aloud "stop it" or act out like punching or slapping the bully. I have completely lost my...

    Throughout my whole life, I've felt a disconnect. Firstly towards my family, now as I looking back on my chilldhood I only have memories of other family members basically insulting and mocking me (this wasn't a cosntant, but occured quite frequently at least from memory). As I got older, I felt...

    Problems with severely interrupted sleep.

    I’m 63, and am currently recovering from a bout of Winter Flu virus that has now kept me off work into this third week. The physical symptoms of the flu are now, happily, receding, but I picked up an immensely worrying set of side symptoms along the way that are threatening to completely...

    how to cope?

    i've had problems for most of my adult life, but the fact that i have pushed away someone that i am very much in love with and connected to had exacerbated things greatly for me. Suicidal thoughts have been with me for a very long time, held in check by a phobia of death. But now realising...

    I think I should just give hope that I’ll find someone who wants me....

    I think I should just give hope that I’ll find someone who wants me.... I think it’s obvious now that no one will ever want me. Everything I try always end in horrible ways. I once wasted six months waiting for a guy that promised to call but never did. I apparently have nothing that anyone...

My daughter takes 350 mg ( which is not high ) and her doctor just informed us that she needs to cut the med to 250 mg and be tested again to see if her levels are still high. Im hoping that she won't be completely taken off the...

    OCD Intrisive thoughts

    Hey all, new to the forums, but have been a long time sufferer of Obsessive Compulsive Dissorder and the intrusive thoughts that go along with it. Recently, after 7 years, I decided to get off of Prozac seeing how it made me feel completely emotionless at times. Currently it has been around 2...

    Talking about mental health vs physical health

    Bit of a rant..bit of truth... Just had a lovely argument with my mum over how all my family do is complain about physical health problems and get all the sympathy in the world. But when I bring up my mental health issues it's like a taboo subject and completely ignored. Sure mum asks everyday...
