    31 May 19 – New member.

    Hello, I'm MNT_Bootlooper, I was (mis)diagnosed with Dysthymia a few years ago. It's a lot worse than I let on to my psychiatrist, out of fear of losing my job (mental health is an important thing in my line of work). I get anxious out in public, particularly while driving a vehicle on a busy...

    Feeling abandoned

    Hello, just found this forum and thought it would be a good place to feel a sense of community and support. I was diagnosed with depressive disorder with anxious distress and “psychogenic rumination”. I don’t fully understand what that means and I only saw a therapist very briefly, too brief...

    Hello to everyone

    I am a 41 year old male and have joined the forum to try and find out if what I am feeling is depression. I will write a separate detailed post in the appropriate forum. Hope I can offer advice to someone as well

    Hi, so basically I joined up because sometimes I feel speaking to others who also live with mental health problems is far easier then speaking to those who don’t necessarily have any experience with mental health problems. So Hi I’m Devilyn and maybe I’ll speak with a few of you soon. I have...

    New and I may have OCD

    Hi! I have noticed symptoms of OCD this past year. I haven’t been diagnosed or seen anyone about it because of the cost.

The medication, risperdal 4mg back then, helped...
