    I’ve been struggling with chronic anxiety/panic attacks for 5 years. To make matters worse 6 years ago I had a heart attack. An anxiety post heart attack combo, well it’s a nightmare and it’s been going on for 5 years.

    Nightmares, how do any of you cope and deal with them?

    I have nightmares sometimes. I can blink in a nightmare to wake myself up. Can anyone else do this? Sometimes I have nightmares and when I when I wake up the low feeling that was in the nightmare stays with me for hours, does anyone else suffer from this?

    Like everything is a living nightmare.......

    We've all heard the saying, "like a living nightmare" but has anyone ever actually felt like they're living in a nightmare? Like still dreaming, a bad dream, even though it's reality and you want to wake up so bad? I've been feeling like this for a while, could it be my adjustment disorder...

    Hirsutism. Being a hairy woman is a nightmare.

    Nothing works. There's no cure for hirsutism. I went to the gynecologist and she did an ultra sound to check my ovaries. No cysts. So that means I don't have PCOS. I got my hormones checked years ago and they said it was normal. Where does this hirsutism come from?! The hair is getting thicker...

    Why do I always feel like self harming?

    I don't know why but even when I have a day which isn't too bad, I still have the craving/ urge to self harm. It's more prominent at night time and it's a complete nightmare because I feel myself tense up.

    Sugar Addict

    Hey. I really think I'm addicted to sugary foods. I'm scared because I just had a lot of it and I just feel a lot of shame and I'm afraid I'll become diabetic and have to have a needle in me (which would be a nightmare). Anyone have any tips on how to get over a bad sugar addiction? Thank you.

    People's attitude changing when they find out you have a MH issue?

    I have tried to keep my issues hidden for as long and from as many people as possible. It's getting harder as time passes and as I lose control over what others see. I expected lots of people to change towards me.. look at me with pity, wariness, being more watchful, trying to 'keep an eye' on...

    After all these years...

    ...I don't know why I expect my mother to be sympathetic and understanding. I don't know why I told her that I had another nightmare about my youngest nephew. Stupid, stupid me. All she could say was "I don't want to hear it. I don't want to have to carry your nightmare." Well, guess what...

    Another Nightmare About My Nephew

    Ok so yesterday after the section they put me on this drug. Reading through this forum it seems there is Nothing but Nightmare Stories. I struggle with my weight and most people say it caused them to stack it on. In view of this, is this REALLY a good drug for me? They have me 50mg yesterday...

    Others seeing the Devil where you see a brother.

    Has anyone else had someone tell them that they had a nightmare about a man, and you're like "Oh, you can see him too?" This happened the other year, but I've just been thinking about. Dets visited her twice; once in a nightmare and once in a coma. She told me in great detail her nightmare...
