    New Here, hoping for a better understanding ing

    Hi All, Not sure if I should even be on this or if what I have or think I have or do is enough to warrant being on here so apologies if it’s not. I’ve been suffering with anxiety for a few years, and maybe even OCD but I don’t know if it’s severe enough to be called that, I worry about...

    Going to talk to someone professional

    OK. I called my psych and got in for later today...in a little while in fact. I don't know what to say to her. I am scared to death. I don't want to be locked away again (I know I am not a danger to anyone or myself) but I am always afraid to talk to anyone because I have been locked away so...

    endless unbearable minutes

    Each minute feels unbearable a never ending hamster wheel I wonder what if I had made different choices responded better. How does someone go from a first class degree and working with young people to total disintegration sleeping in a corner of an empty bedroom on the floor not be not having...

    Need to get away from the government

    Hi my name is Hayley and I am new to this forum but not to mental health. I started getting locked in psych wards in 2012 and at the moment I am very angry with the whole mental health system. I just got out of an 8 month stay at the Austin where I was so badly confined and treated by staff and...

    Memory shot

    We all know that depression messes with your memory. Like this morning I had a pizza bagel with coffee (don't judge). But right after eating it, I forgot what I ate. I walked around trying to remember. Finally I gave in by looking in the trash at the wrapper. Passwords, don't get me started. I...

    How many of you think others should be locked up under section and for how long?

    I'm hearing voices I've never heard before. I'm very very scared. I have my dogs in my room and I know they wouldn't hurt me. But I'm still scared. I have all of my doors locked and my room door closed. I have my window shut and locked. I'm still scared. I'm trying to sleep so I may not reply...

    Talking to my self.

    I've always done this, its always felt normal, I've always had an answer, and can hold full Conversions, with my inner voice. My partner says this isn't normal. Am I not normal? Would I be locked up if I told my doctor? Doesn't everybody do this?

    Stop hate uk

    I wouldn't recommend these. They don't actually do anything. They say they can refer to the Police but you have to give all your details and they can't say what if anything the Police will do and you have the option to tell the Police yourself. But the Police want everyone locked up for life...

    Worrying about locked door

    Hello, I have been diagnosed with OCD where I have to constantly check I have locked a door or turned a tap off. I'm having a mega stress at the mo as I locked up after work, set alarm and then closed the door. It's a keypad locked door so when closing it locks itself I think. I did this on my...

    Got to say it after visiting that site for years and I mean years,the people on the diagnosed forum are a serious bunch of freaks and weirdos.People firing off posts like a machine gun one after the other 24/7 with the first bit of dross that comes to their dysfunctional sick minds. Even though...
