    Anxiety and insomnia

    4 years ago I developed insomnia and then I had anxiety about sleeping. I feel like I'm losing my mind and I'll never be able to function again. Some days I can't drive if I've had no sleep. Has anyone with an anxiety disorder experienced anything like this.:low:

    Car insurance

    I'm sure that others have had this problem in the past. I am waiting on getting my driving license back from DVLA. So I rang them today nearly 4 weeks since I first contacted them. They said that they had only yesterday sent the letter off to my Doctor. However, I can still drive my car while I...

    The long wait for receiving back my driving license

    It seems to be taking forever. I returned my license to DVLA when I was hospitalised back in March 2017. Its now the end of September 2018 and I still have another couple of weeks to go. I know that a section of the law allows for me to drive while waiting for my license back. The trouble is...

    My rage is getting worse

    I posted twice last night, mostly in my journal thread, about what irritated me last night. The hornet's nest (which is me) was poked again, and of course mum denies knowing that flask is mine. Dad told me to respect them, or he'd kick me out. I exploded. I need arguments like this to give me...

    anxiety issues

    I think I’ve always had anxiety issues but I’ve never addressed them. I first truly acknowledged it when I went for a smear test. I managed to get so worked up over it that they couldn’t do the test. Still haven’t had one. Sex is impossible to. I get so worried about how much it will hurt. Then...

    Driving Anxiety

    Does anyone else have driving anxiety? I do and it terrifies me! I wish I could drive. How do you over come driving anxiety? How do you go about getting your drivers license when a psychiatrist says you can't drive? Thank you.

    I feel depressed almost all the time, and have taken test (online) on depression that suggests that I am depressed.

    30 years later, bipolar

    Well, the bipolar has tripped me up, again. It's incompatible with my leg problem. I had a stomach ache and thought I could drive the car to the pharmacy/drugstore. I can't drive the car because sitting up straight makes my leg hurt severely. I know this but I was in the mood to drive the car at...
