    Toxic in-laws, but who's toxic? Or do we just not understand eachother... Hello, I'm new here but need to get something off my chest. I know it's a (very) long text, but it helps me relieve some stress by posting it. Having a conversation about it would be even better, but I don’t want to...

    What information should I give to mental health services?

    Hi, I am diagnosed with a severe mental illness. Firstly. Are there certain things you shouldn't tell mental health professionals? Separately, I have an SW, a CPN and a mental health doctor. I also have a PIP assessment interview soon. I'm worried that if I tell the PIP assessor that I...

    I don't understand my thought process.

    Hey, so I think there's something wrong with me. It seems that I focus too much on the possibilities, rather than probable outcomes. For example, I'll read a YA novel and spend hours just, imagining what it would be like to live that sort of life. I always say that, the thing I want most in this...

    Wish I could be honest about having Schizo-Affective Disorder

    One day, I would love to be honest about my mental illness so that I could encourage others and advocate for certain changes. But I'm always being warned to be secretive so I can get hired, and to avoid people hurting me. Or to avoid people automatically suspecting me of doing something wrong...

    my "white" lies are ruining my marriage

    My husband and I have been married for 3 years.

    How can you keep going, if you are unable to shake off the belief that you're worthless?

    How can you keep going, if you are unable to shake off the belief that you're worthless? How do I keep going? It's no use trying to rationalise the feelings. I've tried time and time again. It never works. I have always felt this ingrained conviction in me that I'm worthless and will always be...

    Generational gap

    Scenario: four people in my living room, eating. So it's a small living room and no, there's no room for me...even though I own the house. It's a very small house. I might have liked to cook a stir-fry or an omelette or whatever for myself but wait...they appear to have used every knife, pot and...

    The solicitor

    I would certainly say that a solicitor has effectively said he wants me to be sectioned. I am sure he wouldn't like it if someone said that to him. I remember the one time I met him and he laughed at me. And this is how we are treated. No respect and no dignity and no listening to the person...
