    Manic energy

    I'm feeling very energetic and over alert like my senses are wired and although it feels better than depression, I'm not sure if it's healthy or fair to feel so enthusiastic .... I'm trying to calm and focus my energy on productive things ... But it's so hard especially late at night, because I...

    I get strange problems with my body vibrational energy.

    In Asia they call it chi, life energy, which you can gather by waving your hands around for example. It's like there is energy in my body that keeps moving around of it's own accord, sometimes i can control it with my mind or muscles but sometimes i can't. It is often very disruptive and I...

    Acceptance of depression

    I guess I am looking for support for the times when I just have to accept I can't be capable of having energy to get out of bed

    Burned out. I haven't been doing much except playing in bed analyzing my thoughts. Internally i feel much better doing this than I have been working, but I wish my energy and concentration would come back. I want a job, I want to work, I want to study.

    It recently dawned on me that IMO I have PTSD

    I saw my GP today, he is referring me to a specialist to get a diagnosis; I can't go in to why I think I've got it because it would take too long & I have very little energy & am always tired (I've already been diagnosed with aspergers & anxiety & I've been on anti-depressants for 27 years ie...

    Two weeks ago I was super high energy - not really hypomanic, I don't think. But I was bubbling over with ideas to implement with the toddlers I work with. I felt great, motivated, excited about my work. A week later I started my period and came down with an insanely sore throat, and I...

    Is this normal for depression?

    Hi, is it normal to feel physically sick, and so tired that I can barely move? It’s a complete nightmare because I have 17 month old twins and I’ve gone from having so much energy to have less than none since the depression has hit me square in the face.

    Wonderland's lacklustre adventures

    After recently disappearing down the rabbit hole again into psychosis almost causing a hospital admission for violent hallucinations (violent towards myself rather than anyone else), I feel somewhat flat now.

    Clothes in this weather - dangerous and a form of torture
