    toxic family influence - have stopped seeing my dad for the time being

    I've long felt that the cause of me having mental illness was because of my childhood and family relationships. Finally, in my forties, I've just told my dad - by text - that I think a good way for us to keep in touch would be by email - as opposed to meeting so much or having so many phone...

    Pushing the envelope or not

    Some say you have to push boundaries to progress but what if where you are at provides the level of pressure/stress to keep you falling over the edge?

    Thought Broadcasting: what I think is happening

    Delusions of reference I gather is the popular term. But I'm talking about the version where actual people are involved, in real life...not over tv or radio or internet.. From what I understand, my agitated state is getting picked up on by people around me at a subconscious level. At this level...

    Just had my Lithium level taken and it is .5 and I feel like it is working for me at that level. My pdoc wants it to be around .8 which means I will have more side effects. What is the lowest lithium level that has worked for you? Thanks, Matt

    The day of reckoning

    The day of reckoning . Not at all confident. Extremely anxious. Resisted temptation to go to Co op buy spirits and get plastered. Not putting myself through this again. The whole thing is above my capability level. I could have done without the stress.

    Is there a theraputic dose level of this drug for it to work specifically as a mood stabiliser? Or is it a case of just having it at a level you respond well to? Cheers

    Crash on the horizon?

    I feel like I'm gonna crash soon. I've been smoking lots of dope, been having sex with randoms and also been serious about dating sites. On a personal level there's too much going on - fucking and fucking mainly. I don't know what the fuck I'm doing.

    The basics

    Even keeping up with(or attempting to) the basics seems like too much effort, day in day out. Anything more than that is several bridges too far. Surely existing at such a low level shouldn't feel like this. It's hard to remember when i had any 'get up and go'.

    Thoughts on Seroquel

    The doctor said seroquel has AD properties. I find that hard to believe because it's so sedating. If it does have anti depressant properties at which level is it? Thanks. Peace.
