    Just can’t get chance

    I apply and apply but nothing. Applied for Unit Secretary job at hospital. Contacted recruiter on LinkedIn... she said she saw my application but I asked for too much. It was shift 6 - 3 pm, full time, and I asked for $40k. Her response made me spiral. Inside for 2 days now. Not motivated.

    When you feel well again

    Don't you just find it so unfair that after abit of an episode (for me caused by insomnia)or people find out you have a mental health illness all of a sudden everything you say gets made out to be bat shit crazy even if what your sayings true and your back to full health and mental clarity.

    too comfortable staying at home

    I'm not sure if I am agoraphobic or just introverted... I only go out if I have to, as it's the holidays I don't feel the need to leave, even if I get bored, the thought of going out doesn't interest me. In a way I kind of enjoy the fact I can sit at home all day doing whatever the fuck I...

    Levomepromazine. Has anyone tried this medication?

    We picked it up today from this psychiatrist. She told me to take it tonight. I got 100 mg. She told me to take half, but I'm going to take the full pill since I need to sleep. I know this medication won't work anyway, which is why I might take the full pill.
