    I've been feeling pretty disappointed in myself. I feel like I'm not making progress fast enough. I've been afraid of disappointing my therapist because of this.

    What are you grateful for?

    If you say 3 things you are grateful for before you go to bed it has shown to make your happier. I am grateful I can walk ( my mum just had a hip operation) I am grateful for my family I am grateful for my boyfriend. What are you grateful for?

    Schizoaffective friends?

    Does anybody else out there have this? I do, and it's hard a lot because sometimes I feel good, like I can do a lot with myself. And then I feel like I can't because I remember that I have to take it easy. Overloading on activities is a stressor, which always leads to breakthrough symptoms...

    Being Judged By The Way You Look

    Sorry but I had to get this off my chest I really get sick of people who judge others on the way they look, they should have a long hard look in the mirror and they will see that they are NOT perfect. In fact they are flawed, they may not be as ugly as me on the outside but they sure as hell...

    Wishing I didn't exist.

    Just found this site. I just can't find anything to look forward to. Every day is a battle, and I feel more and more down. I feel so very alone. I wish I was not alive, but would not do anything about it, as my children need me. So I have to go on with this life. I should be grateful for the...

    1 step forward, 2 steps back

    Hello all, I'm pretty hesitant to start this, as I am terrified of someone recognizing me. I hardly know where to start, or how to put my feelings into words. I'm probably going to rant a lot. I have all types of anxiety... social, general, panic disorder. Panic attacks usually once a day...

    Hi all, I have symptoms that fit the spectrum of cyclothymia (I think), and I will be seeking professional advice on this. I sometimes wonder if I'm being dramatic about the high vs the low. To me they are significant and notable, however I am asking what others have experienced? Particularly...

    Llike a weed in my head

    Evening all. I'm new to this forum so I'm not quite sure how it works, but here goes! I've been suffering mainly with depression for nearly 17 years. The anxiety part is a more recent thing. It can start with a small thing, that normally wouldn't bother me. My brain then decides it's a good...

    what's love?

    I'm sitting here whilst my partner is in the next room with DD. I know it's the end of us, I know that to him i'll be nothing more than 'that crazy girl'. But what about all of the things he has done to me? It means nothing because I have mental health and he doesn't or at least he doesn't...
