    40something, on the computer EVERY waking minute (what is wrong)?

    I am in my 40's, married, female, with two young children. I don't know why but I am on my phone or laptop EVERY SINGLE minute I am awake (other than when I shower for example). I'm happy with my life but need to stop this addiction. I have sought counselling but it doesn't work, and I have...

    Lamest Intro Ever

    I dunno what to say really. I've been dealing with mental health issues for over half my life now (I'm only 26). Some really stupid, irrelevant, minute bs happened tonight and for some reason it really triggered me. So here I am.

    My moods are out of control

    I constantly switch my views of people and I will be accused of being a bitch because I can feel as if I can't trust someone one minute and the next I'm lovely to them. I also feel as if I either feel all good or all bad, for example I can sometimes feel as if I love everyone and the need to be...

    Can someone give me a clue please?

    I realise I have been depressed since a young child. The results of being exposed to alcoholic abuse, and both physical and verbal by my mother. A long line of failed relationships followed by 15 years of marriage to a Sociapath. Now totally isolated. I cry to quickly, I know my thinking is...

    up and down up and down

    Well as the titles says, I'm just up and down from minute to minute. I certainly wouldn't say I'm high and low - more like low or really low. Does that make any sense? Generally my mood is low, even on meds and good days I'd still say I have a low mood. But at the moment I'm going from being in...
