    My Journey with Depression, Anxiety and Life

    Greetings All, I've never shared, outside of a small network of close people, some of the struggles I've dealt with in recent years. My hope is that by sharing some of the things I've been dealing with, by opening up in a more "public" way, I can help make myself feel better about some of it...

    Hi, I've just joined. Getting to better

    Hi, I'm new here. Like many of you, I've had the "demons" inside my head tormenting me for my lifetime. Drugs help, but they muffle more than extinguish the pain. There is nothing worse than having your mind - the one thing you can't escape - turn against you. I'm hoping to learn how some of...

    I've never really used a forum like this before, so I don't really knew what to expect but I'm hoping to meet people who understand what I'm going through.

    Just moved in, need to meet my neighbours

    Hello. New here. Have been on another forum since my son became ill with schizophrenia in early 2013. Have found it more helpful than I can put into words to connect with other carers and others living with mental illness as a way of feeling less like an alien since our lives changed so...
