    What we can learn from the Natural World

    I find it interesting that after years of living I still have things to learn from the natural world. There is a certain quiet contemplation to the observation of nature and the world around us, that most things there happen in response to physical processes or the instincts of animals. One...

    How can I get things done?

    This may sound silly but I have a serious problem of not getting anything. I spend most of my time daydreaming and spaced out. I don't seem to care about things but, when I reflect on my life, I tend to panic because I have't done anything. When I say I don't get things done, I mean I can't...

    Hi, I'm new here. I don't know what I'm doing on here really. I have moved to a country with my family where I barely know the language, I'm extremely isolated at home with my young kids, and I have no idea how to go about getting help here. I've seen professionals in the past, but I just...

    Hi After reading lots on here, I felt this is an interesting place to rant/discuss mental health. I’m complex as we all are, many times diagnosed with bilopar type 2. With each year that passes, I accept this more and learn more about myself. I’m more than the technical label, changeable and...

    Depression and Learning

    Hi All! Anyone got any tips on what to do to "switch" my brain on when it comes to learning? I am currently studying at university and find it extremely hard, in fact, nigh on impossible to learn anything. Every time I try and engage my brain to learn I either feel really fatigued (after as...

    Hi all! New to the forum.

    So the last almost 7 years have been the worst of my life. For the last 4 or 5 months, I have finally been able to start healing. Each day is better than the last. But I don't have friends anymore and my family isn't a ton of support when it comes to self improvement. So here I am. I plan to...

    Here for the muffins and the support.. and I ate all your muffins.

    Hi there. Simply.. I have been diagnosed with major depressive disorder and it's more than likely that a medication I am on (for a health condition I don't want to talk about) is making it worse. Alternative medication is well and truly out of my price range. I just have to push through this...

    How do you learn to love yourself?

    I wish I could love myself and I don't know how. How can you love yourself when you are broken from the inside and fundamentally flawed? How do other people on here do it? Relying on other people's compliments for self worth is not a good way to build self confidence which is what I do. Does...
