    Has anyone ever had yeast infection like symptoms while diagnosed with schizophrenia? I do. My primary care doctor said it was a psychiatric problem. It goes away sometimes when I'm at the store but it's just all really difficult. When I isolate myself it returns.

    Thinking about splitting from my boyfriend.

    We’ve been together about 4 months and we’ve broken up several times already. Yesterday I think I figured out why. I suspect he has Antisocial Personality Disorder and possibly a Psychopath, (his own mother has called him a Sociopath in front of me) but not sure about that because he got...

    Are you ready to do regular work?

    Here’s a question for you all: how do you know whether you are ready to go back to work, and whether you are able to do a certain job? I’m finding it difficult to answer this one. Currently I’m doing a series of job interviews, and its for quite a demanding job, involving difficult technical...

    Suicidal (hope it's ok to say that)

    But it's true. Spent a little while talking to staff, but it hasn't helped. Didn't help that after I'd talked to him, he told the next person that he was parched and did he want a cup of tea? I felt left out. There's so much I want to say but can't. About to take my nightly meds. Have...

    Standing up for yourself

    I've started a difficult conversation with my father, about how he can sometimes be very sharp and unsupportive, which is sometimes hurtful to both myself and my mother. It's been quite liberating so far, to articulate feelings I've had for a long time but have been unable to express, usually...
