    A place to socialize and meet others with anxiety

    It would be nice if the community could have large cafes where people with mental illness can meet and socialize and hangout. People who are in similar situations. Wouldn't that facilitate and accelerate recovery? These cafes could be nice places to do homework, maybe even to find your soulmate

    Feeling ignored

    I'm in one of those dark moods. I just phoned my father who tells me that he'd received a lovely call from my son to say he's having a lovely time on holiday. That's nice I thought, I didn't receive a call. So I got pissed off and I sent him a message that I'll probably regret sending...

    Psychiatrist mean well, but do they really know what they are doing? They can't do a blood test, or a brain scan to know what is wrong with me. It is just their opinion. My new psychiatrist is young and beautiful, and she thinks I'm more crazy than my last one, who was old and fat. They are both...
