    Travel insurance

    I'm due to jet off in June with my Son and Brother on holiday to Tenerife. I'm searching for travel insurance and the cheapest for the week away is the Co Op at £378 for the three of us. Can you suggest someone that is better value?

    Feeling really overwhelmed right now

    I don't know how in the real world anyone does it! You got all those responsibilities in the world and people are still happy and enjoying their lives. I find it hard to do that when you're so overwhelmed and it's like you're falling apart. I don't understand how some people can stay in...

    Shipwrecked and paralyzed

    I was relieved to find my way back here after all the medical wrong turns. I was happy to see many of the same people here and hope everyone is making progress or just holding on. Some days hanging on is the best I can do. I had major trouble finding a doctor that I could talk to. It turned...

    Really bad teeth anxiety

    Hi, I'm 22, and I have really bad anxiety about my teeth. I worry that my gums are receding, and that one day soon my teeth will fall out, and there will be nothing I can do to fix it. I have crappy dental insurance right now, and I might be able to afford better in a few months, but also maybe...

    Does anyone take Latuda?

    I started with med probably 3 1/2 months ago. It’s been very effective. I have a coupon for a year with my co pay on my insurance capped at a reasonable price. If it wasn’t for that I couldn’t afford it. Anyone else on it and found it effective?

    Did a stupid thing

    I lost it yesterday and listened to my urges to hurt myself. And now there’s no way my husband won’t see and know. I don’t know what to do or what to say. I don’t want him to know how badly I’m doing right now. I don’t want to go back to my counselor because I don’t like her and I have shitty...

    Have to be brave..

    My husband never was the type to watch his diet and exercise regimen regularly. I've always made suggestions, or would tell him how important it was in the long run to keep an eye on his weight, eating habits, etc. But, you know how some folks are.. You just can't tell them much until the...

    I think I'm going to take my own life soon and it scares me.

    The other day we went to the city and I got the bad news that I won't be getting health insurance. I just felt even more numb after that and I walked around the streets like a zombie. Probably the medication that's causing me to feel numb. But I feel like fading away. I think I'm going to take...

    They don't want to give me health insurance.

    So I've moved back to Germany (I'm actually from here. Born and mostly raised.) And they said they won't be able to give me health insurance because I'm not studying or working. I had health insurance in the US because my father used to work in the military. So everything was controlled by the...

    Life Insurance?

    Has anyone found it hard to get life insurance because of your BPD? I have tried a load of places but they refuse to insure me. It is getting on my nerves now. It all goes well until they ask about the mental health bit. I have been trying all morning for a quote and everywhere is the same "they...

    I just want help

    I was diagnosed last year. For the most part I was able to stay stable with the help of my meds.
