    Thank you

    Hi, This is the first time I’ve ever joined a forum. I was in bed staring at the ceiling at 4am and decided to do a search. I have bipolar disorder and bpd apparently. Personally I think a seriously messed up childhood may play a big part. My life feels like it’s crashing down around me right...

    Rant about stigma and mental illness

    I swear to God, I give up!!! We will never lose the stigma about mental illness and I have to give up. If I don't, I will be posting video's and shit until I'm dead. My fucking family won't change so I guess its just me. I'm the loser. Something is seriously wrong with me and I deserved...

    What is " :3 "

    Hi, I see some people here type a :3 at the end of their notes. What does this mean? If I had to guess, I'm thinking it might be a cat? Are you telling us that you like cats? :confused::confused:

    How to overcome health anxiety?

    Does anyone here have experience with health anxiety? I've had it for over a year at this point, but I still don't know how to handle it. I have periods with little anxiety, and periods where I think I'm dying almost every night. Right now, it's the latter. And I guess I should specify that it's...

    Is it okay to go to the store with a cold

    If it's perfectly fine to go out somewhere with adenovirus, then why do we even have medicine for it? I guess it's one of those psychotically charged questions, on my part.

    Hello Friends :-)

    Hello, I'm going to introduce myself and I'll write as I like, I guess, because I sincerely do not mind who knows this. I'm 33. In USA. I have a degenerative spine; it is a disease where the discs degenerate and causes bone spurs and lots of pain. There's no cure for it. So far. I also have...

    Feeling Lost, even good news is bad news.

    Hey all, So this is my first post and also kinda the first 'public' time I've expressed this, so I apologize in advance if this is a long post. Since around late 2016 I've been fighting with what started to be depressive thoughts and now all around depression and feeling of not being motivated...

    Alone again

    Yesterday my best friend of 8+ years decided she no longer wants to be my friend. She says I know where she lives yet I never come over. What she seems to forget is, I’m the one that has always been there for her, I’m the one who sent her good morning text when she was suffering from depression...
