    Why should I do when I feel so hollow?

    Hi, everybody. This is my first time around here, and I have been reading a couple of threads here and there, and I wanted to know if anybody has an advice for me. I have been diagnosed with depression, and I have a therapist which I visit monthly, but even with that, I have been...

    Are these manic episodes?

    Hey all, I have been diagnozed with depression for around 7 years. However, I have always suspected there was more to it than that. I get periods where I am incredibly impulsive. For example, I decided on impulse the other day to embark upon a drawing course. I bought all the resources and set...

    I Miss My Therapist So Much

    And it hurts a lot. I just miss her. And now I've quit spiritual direction and stopped going to the soul care monthly meetings. That was my only social connection and I've dropped everything.

    Depression/Social Anxiety

    My head just tells me I am an annoying patient etc. Not many CBT sessions left I don't think - apparently they review on 6, I think I've had 3 or 4, and I feel quite down about that today, as it helps me to talk things through with someone. It's not like I'm not learning stuff from CBT...

    Not sure if this is the correct thread here but anyway.. I had a contraceptive implant for three years - as a result of this I had no monthly cycle and as far as I am aware no significant monthly changes in any form. I had this removed (it had ended) about two months ago - I decided not to...

    Not my money

    I've quit a job around 6 months ago and they are still paying me monthly. I have been spending the money without thinking of any future repercussions. Am I in the wrong, or is the the companies fault?

    Clean everything I touch with rubbing alcohol

    Hi, I'm new here. & I have OCD. I have always had OCD, but it exacerbated once I got raped. Since the rape, I clean everything I touch with 91% rubbing alcohol, & I find myself using 40 + bottles/month. It's about $90 out of my monthly budget. I want to stop, but don't know how.

    Can afford two holidays a year abroad while on benefits.

    I'm not bragging honestly but my predicament is I have surplus cash from my benefits totally around £400 monthly, is this the norm on here. I like to go on bus travels within Europe 5-7 days max. It helps my illness to get away.

    Monthly shot what do you think?

    Monthly shot what do you think? Toying with the idea of the new monthly risperdal shot, it would basically mean I would only be in contact for 130 minutes with mh services in a 12 month period. For all intents and purposes completely independent from them. I signed myself off from any other...
