    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...

    maybe I deserve this pain. it's punishment

    I deserve all this pain and suffering. Punishment for past behavior. My life isn't going anywhere. I thought I had a future with my partner. One that involved a child that was both ours, one that had family days out and just generally being a family. We have spoken about it in the past. Never...

    I was against the idea. But he wanted to have time off work etc and urged me, I finally accepted and now he's going about like I'm terminally ill and he's tied down. He's checking out other women ALOT, trying to find excuses to talk to exes, banging on about success he could have had as a...

    Drinking a blessing or a curse....

    Maybe this is something I should journal but want a broader view on it. I was raised with alcoholics. My mum turned to religion when I was 7 and quit and afterwards used alcohol as the evil excuse for everything and actually I was terrified to go into a beer store or liquor store well into my...

    Relapse?

    I was diagnosed with an eating disorder (Anorexia) when I was 13 and it lasted until I was 15. I was self treated, meaning my parents decided to force me to eat, which worked, except I went from one extreme to the other around 17-18 years old having BED. Since then (22 now), I've ballooned up to...

    There is a severe problem with the water pressure in my flat, I've told the landlord about it on several occasions - I've lost count of the amount of times, he just fobs me off, makes excuses, procrastinates & so on, he fails to understand how unacceptable the situation is. It seems to be...

    So apparently I'm hard work

    I've been avoiding my 'friends' for ages now, none of them understand mental health and they're perfectly happy getting on with life. One of my friends asks me how I am, if I hint about how crap i'm feeling, she ignores me. So last saturday it was someones birthday. I missed her 30th last year...

    Denial and excuses

    What is it people are trying to achieve when they resort to denial, or lying or making excuses ? My wife does this all the time, and I laugh it off when I can but when several people witness an event and still she denies it - what then ? And why ? With her, it boils down to self awareness; she...
