    Feeling really overwhelmed right now

    I don't know how in the real world anyone does it! You got all those responsibilities in the world and people are still happy and enjoying their lives. I find it hard to do that when you're so overwhelmed and it's like you're falling apart. I don't understand how some people can stay in...

    What do anti-psychotic drugs do to you?

    I am on clopixol 300mg injection a month and I used to be on 600mg a month. It makes me feel lethargic and causes me to leave my mouth open and not look directly at the PC monitor when I am typing.

    The Burden of my Whole Life is Before me

    I try to remember what it was like in my thirties. I remember the hyper sexuality and the crying every month when I felt shame for my adultery. I don't necessarily believe that this was a bad thing to have hypersexuality. If my husband had been interested, it could have worked out fine and...

    Promised support is non-existent

    Before I left hospital the psychiatrist told me he would arrange someone to watch over me and support me when I was discharged. The CPN assigned to me visited and told me he'd ring me once a month to see if I was alright - and that's it. I need someone to keep an eye on me and make sure I'm...

    Latuda tapering withdrawal

    Hi all, I was hoping for some insight. My doctor recently prescribed 20 mg Latuda to replace the 40 mg I was taking. My anxiety has skyrocketed even though I was only on it for a month. Is this normal or is my hypochondria rearing its ugly head? Thanks!

    Don't Want to get off Xanax...

    Hi. I don't really want to be writing this. I feel like in some ways this makes me accountable, and I don't want to be. I want to keep living in my bubble of blissful denial while I float on Xanax clouds. I need to stop. But I don't want to. I don't take much (0.5 mg). That's why I've let it be...
