    People's attitude changing when they find out you have a MH issue?

    I have tried to keep my issues hidden for as long and from as many people as possible. It's getting harder as time passes and as I lose control over what others see. I expected lots of people to change towards me.. look at me with pity, wariness, being more watchful, trying to 'keep an eye' on...

    DBT on the NHS

    Hello, I wanted to ask if anyone else had attended or is attending DBT through the NHS for treatment of BPD, I am starting this soon, and to be honest I really do not know how I feel about it. It feels very unnatural, and I really am dreading it now. The thought about going is making me feel...

    Keeping my depression a secret

    I was diagnosed with depression and put on medication around a month ago and still haven't told anyone. I've just moved home after finishing university and am finding it really hard to hide from my family, having to hide my medication and take it in secret. I also need to register and go to the...

    Side effects or only anxiety?

    Ugh. I finally went to my doc after years of symptoms consistent with GAD and health anxiety. He prescribed Lexapro, and now my symptoms (after 1 day) are way worse. Jitters, racing thoughts, etc.) I don't know if this is just because I'm nervous about being on meds and what it'll do to me, or...

    I hate everything

    I'm 24 years old and I have never had a real relationship. I've had sex with lots of people, sure, but it never works out no matter how much time or patience I put into it. I'm extremely alone and I really have no one to talk to about any of this aside from my psychiatrist who I see once every 2...

    Old friends don't talk to me. Did I ruin something?

    I go off and on wanting to use Facebook and not use it. I know it's a simple fix to quit looking at it and then I won't become depressed by having my comment ignored while they give all their other friends' comments "likes." Or seeing an old friend reminisce with another but ignore my message...

    Something to share.

    Hi all, I'm new to the forums and have something I'd like to share because reasons. Any thoughts would be appreciated? Sometimes I'm sitting beside someone I really care about and every fibre of my being wants to hold them, to feel their warmth and never to let them go; to be held by them...

    What help is there?

    Feeling really bad at the moment. Well, that's not true - i'm not feeling anything at all and i'm also feeling everything. It's been no secret that I think the BPD label isn't accurate but hey ho, i'm stuck with it. I was so eager to appear 'good' and 'non-borderline' when I saw the pdoc...

    My suicidal friend smuggled self harm instrument into hospital

    I should have expected it as she is very rebellious and incorrigible. Reasons I also adore her. But the staff caught her and I'm hoping she won't find a creative way to SH. I miss her so much. She is my only true friend and I'm so glad she is safe. I feel kind of lonely not being able to phone...
