    Unfortunately I have been to quite a few of these. They have always been for a techincal role. I know it's kind of Dragons Den situation asking people to make quite a big financial gamble on me, but still I feel like I am always elimated based on some kind of personal bias on behalf of the...

    Just looking for advice

    Hey, I have had depression already for 6 years. And had Anorexia , now I try to be healthy. To get better I did sports. Since I was a kid I have always ridden a horse. When I started to feel gloomy, I stoped riding. My doctor and teachers at that time encouraged me to get back at horse riding...

    Annoyed About "Key Worker"

    For the past couple of years I had a great Key Worker (Bob) now I'm with a new Guy and he (seems) kind of condescending.

    Obsessive fiaxtion on therapist

    Hi, I'm new here and I thought I might try giving this forum a shot; I hold everybody at a distance and as such I have nobody in the real world to talk to about this, so I thought I would try here for like-minded people. I hope others can perhaps relate without judgement. I'm 20 something yo...

    Bpd and comorbid OCD

    Hi. I was wondering if someone have experience of BPD and OCD and if yes what kind of therapy you have received för this? I will begin DBT for my problems with BPD but im not sure how to adress the OCD parts, perhaps the OCD will remit once I start working with the DBT therapy? Any kind of...

    I'm lost?

    I don't fit in society. I am very introverted, introspective and contemplative. I like to be alone, to admire and to reflect, I like the night and the silence. If I participate in social interactions, I lose my energy, it's very painful. . I do not like polluted environments, either visually or...

    SA has been a thing in my life for as long as I can remember. I see it as sort of a parasite that has attached itself to me and controls me. I feel like SA has almost intertwined itself with my personality in that it tells me how to be, what is acceptable, what is right, what you do in certain...

    Nagging Feeling

    I was wondering if anyone has felt like something was just nagging at them? Like your stomach just starts feeling sick and you feel like someone's trying to get you to do something bad like hurting yourself. It feels like some kind of anxiety but I am not really sure.

    Kind of a positive thread tonight!

    I don't have anything negative to report right now lol. I am editing the captions to the video I just recorded last night (Little Inferno) and I am finding this even more annoying than editing my video! Ahhh! I am going absolutely crazy (so to speak) doing this tedious work, but I am so glad to...

    Hi, This is my first time posting on a forum, and genuinely have no idea how it works, or what I'm supposed to say! But i'll give it a shot... I'm 27 years old, and I have no idea how to be by myself. I have 'traits' of BPD, by the way (apparently) as a bit of background. I have realised more...

    I’m kind of annoyed

    Didn’t expect to come to a social community and be ignored... I get enough of that in normal life.

    Words cut deep

    I’m very self aware and know I’m a bit strange, but hearing someone else tell me this fact, ain’t easy. Especially when it’s said out of spite. I’ve been told some of the following: “You’re not normal” (this was said to me following my brother in laws stag do, sitting around a table, the...

    Mental Illness is "Weakness"

    OP: "Why the f*** are people so god damn weak these days? Jesus Christ." Response: "Lack of Jesus Christ" Those were two comments in response to an article about Millennials waiting a long time for mental health treatment. This was posted in a Reddit page for fellow countrymen who support the...

    Sorry for my last posts

    Hi, in a slightly better place now. I kind of had a mini breakdown (number 99 and counting). I would like to thank the people who replied for being kind and supportive including the moderators who pm’d me.

    Why don't ppl tell you why they hate you?

    I have always been the type of person that is willing to change to be more likeable or less upsetting for others. But when people become offended by something I say or do. They don't say why they just start treating me badly and if I straight forwardly ask them they will laugh or make something...

    Hi everyone. Just thought it best to introduce myself and say hi before thinking about diving in and making a few posts. I joined because I don't want to feel alone in my struggles and, as we know, having MI's can sometimes be quite an isolating kind of life. Anyway, it's nice to be here and...

    So I kind of messed up

    Hey guys, so I kinda messed up. I stopped taking my medication. I didn't deliberately stop I just kept missing dosages or forgetting to take them to a point I'd convinced myself I was fine without them. I'm a total mess by no surprise and I would just start taking them as normal again but they...
