    Hi everybody

    I'm a middle-aged male with a history of minor anxiety, depression and a strong psychosis. The anxiety and depression went away by themselves and I used no medication for them, but I was hospitalized for a few months for psychosis, it was that bad. The medication, risperdal 4mg back then, helped...

    Keeping hens has helped me, anyone else tried it?

    I've always wanted to keep hens, but lived for decades in a flat in a city so couldnt. Then in 2015 I moved to a rented house in the countryside and the owners agreed I could keep up to 12 hens and we decided to get some ex-battery hens via the British Hen Welfare Trust. Right from the start...

    Coming off mitrazapine

    I’ve been taking Prozac for approx. 6 months, it has really helped with my depression but caused horrible anxiety-my doctor prescribed mitrazapine additionally, which has helped, but caused me to gain 17kg in 3 months :( My doctor has suggested I stop the mitrazapine, and instead double my...

    Hi everyone

    I'm a 23 year old man living in the U.S. Although I have it better than many on these forums, my main issue is both being depressed and being too introverted to make proper social relationships. When I was a young child I didn't interact with many people besides my brother, spending a lot of...

    5 years down

    So first off I'd like to say I've been diagnosed for 5 years now, had the usual carting around from therapist to therapist, each one saying the same thing that they feel like they can't help me with my issues. I eventually found one, who introduced me to psychotherapy and it really helped! I had...

    Psychiatry has ruined my life

    Am I the only one who feels like his life has been ruined by psychiatry? Nothing is working for me. I feel like I'm disabled and paralyzed. I'm not doing anything, life is just passing by.. I'm giving up my powers and just don't know what to do anymore. Are there other people like me who didn't...

    OCD. Is there any hope?

    Hello, I have had OCD, fear of contamination, since I was young (decades ago). I am having a rough time and am not sure I can be helped. Last year my insurance paid for 8 weeks of counseling but this year doesn't. My counselor last year had me meditate, which slightly helped the anxiety but...
