    My mood has changed for the better. Thank God!

    It's funny how one day your so low that you think the sky is falling. The next day your on top of the world, cleaning and enjoying life. I confuse myself

    struggling ?

    At the moment I’m struggling so much, my mum has been diagnosed with terminal cancer with months left to live. The thought of losing her is heartbreaking.......my world feels like it is falling apart. I’m watching her die slowly and I can’t stop it! I don’t want to be without her.

    Does anyone have any difficulties falling asleep or staying asleep on this medication. At first it helped to make me fall asleep and would wake up groggy from it. Now I'm having difficulty falling asleep and I feel like I can't breath and have to gasp for air and only sleeping a max of four...

    Tired of crying

    Went to the supermarket today. Didn't stop crying until just before I got to the checkout. I suppose that part's good at least. I guess it was nice that there were no nasty stares.. Only a few weird glances. Part of me wished that someone would have asked me if I was ok so I could have stopped...

    Hearing voices

    When I get asked if I hear voices I say no because I always thought hearing voices was constantly hearing a jumbled mess of different voices in your head all day long. I have never experienced that, so my reply would be no. But I do hear inaudible whispers and every so often a low voice simply...
