    Anyone Taking Brentillix?

    Hello, I have been taking Brentillix for the past 10 weeks, and it seems to help me. However, I have a lot of trouble sleeping. It has helped me get out of a deep depression, although I am certainly not symptom free. I was wondering if anyone else has experience with this med and how it has...

    Meditation not Mindfulness

    Hi Guys. I've been searching for the right type of meditation that helps for years. I came across Raja Yoga Meditation at Brahma Kumaris Centres that are all over the UK + totally free of charge. The one I go to is near the Opera House in central Manchester, as it's geared to help cope with...

    Food Banks

    I wanted to start a thread on food banks and free food places in general and after the no deal Brexit that people seem to so desperately want, and to be worse off and food prices rising I might not be able to afford food anymore if its to expensive. So what are the requirements for food banks...

    Do you question if you're really sick?

    How often do you question whether you're sick or not? I've been thinking lately that I'm not really ill. That I've confused and misled multiple trained providers. But then i have a visual hallucination I can't explain. I'm so confused. But I don't want to go back to hospital. Now that I have...

    No meds?

    Is there anyone here that has Bipolar 2 that has decided to go meds free? I have been reading about the side effects of the common drug treatment and they all have drastic side effects. I'm wondering if it is better to go meds free? Any thoughts?

    I wish I could just walk and be happy.

    Peaceful life: Simple job a few hours a week. Spending my free time hiking the countryside. I would be happy. But instead I want more. I want more and its killing me.

    Freedom of choice

    I’ve been thinking about where my life is at, and I came to an interesting insight. Most people seem to let their choices be determined by a very small set of ambitions and factors: they want a family, they want to own a house and a car, they want to go on holiday... They literally chain...

    Making life-changing decisions on small evidence

    I’ve come across a few autobiographical stories lately where people have made life changing decisions on very slim evidence... for example there was one lady who met an Indian man casually in Germany, and when he said he was going back to India she had a feeling she would go with him, and she...

    Borderline Relapse After 15 years recovery?

    Hi, I was diagnosed with bpd 15 years ago. Took DBT, CBT, therapy, meds and got off disability. Then worked 12 years relatively symptom free. Now I'm having a complete relapse and I'm off work. Is this normal for borderlines to go through?
