    Professor anxiety

    Ugh, the nicer a school you go to, the bigger the egos of everyone around you, especially the profs. I had a neuroscience prof who never replies to emails like a normal human being. You can feel him reading your email and deliberately not replying to boost himself up over you. There is no...

    Depression makes you ugly?

    Does anyone else find depression makes them more ugly? I know a negative outlook will see the negatives, but I mean I do nothing different with my face/hair yet my hair gets knotty and stringy, looks crap, my face just looks worse - dry skin or whatever. Maybe I'm just not taking the time to do...

    There’s a reason I don’t speak with family. Because they get on my nerves. I’ve gone a couple months of not speaking and just checked in .. only to be met with stupid crap! About their kids... stupid crap. Then them analyzing me as to what my issues are. Ummm, I have a psychiatrists...

    Brain sapping

    I've heard about this but, it freaks me out. Has anyone had this done, or does anybody know anything about it? Electro shock to the brain scares the crap out of me!

    Relapsed again ....

    Not sure how many times I have written a post like this, but I have relapsed again. I cannot control my urge to drink and drug due to BDP. I haven't been taking my medication because it stops me sleeping and gives me restlessness. I haven't been meeting with my CPN or GP either, so I am...

    Life is not worth this hell

    I keep trying to find a reason to keep going on. I've always struggled and fought and overcome but I am just too exhausted. I can't keep this up. I was stable. I'm very high functioning when I am stable. Hubby and I divorced. Due to finances, I have to live here until I can afford a place. It's...

    Poor Treament

    i don't agree with the current mainstream / dominant understanding & approach to psychosis / schizophrenia. i don't agree with a lot of the past 27 years of ways that i have been treated. Surely with what i have spoken out on in my criticism of things, & in of alternatives is Not...

    Anxiety in the way of work and hobbies

    About 11 years ago I was diagnosed with ADD, severe clinical depression and anxiety. I was about 14 when I first started suffering from both disorders and while I am medicated for my ADD, and something to help me sleep, (I used to have VERY bad nightmares caused by the depression and anxiety) it...

    Another Strange Experience

    Sometimes (not very often) when I look in the mirror I see what looks like "The Devil" (with horrible eyes) and it says: "Are you f***king dead yet? I f**king hate you." To be honest, it doesn't really bother me because I'm not afraid of "The Devil" (and I know I'm a good person). However...
