    Greetings, I figure an intro post is the way to go. I came across the forum when googling things and what with the way things are going presently, figure I should join. Hard to say in a nutshell but one thing I have noticed of late is that whereas I figured I'd had depression, it has become...

    Just diagnosed

    Hi all, I have just been diagnosed with BPD after years and years of suffering since I was about 13 (I’m now 20). I’m having an absolute nightmare. I currently take Citalopram for the anxious side of things but NOTHING helps the other aspects other than just riding them out. I’m currently...

    I'm not sure how this works. I haven't been diagnosed with anything and I haven't gone out to look for help nor do I plan to. I'm using this website to try and figure out some things.

    Existing is uncomfortable

    Existing feels really uncomfortable for me. I have no idea how to properly explain it because I barely understand it but I just feel like something is wrong, something is missing, something is out of place. I'm a deep thinker, it's just who I am, so often my thoughts will drift to how do I...

    wish I could figure me out

    On the outside I am doing pretty good. Not in a fake way but things are ok. Life gets done enough to keep everything in place. BUT when I stop to ask myself "how am I really doing" the deep insides of me don't feel so good. They feel low, empty and I don't want to do life then. Not that I want...

    Is Trazodone addictive?

    It is not a sedative to my knowledge(most sedatives aren't addictive to my knowledge). My doctor/NP seems reluctant to put me on it and I can't figure out why.

    Don't Care Fashion statement

Starting a little over 6 months ago I noticed my fiance, of 7 years, was...
