    Work and anxiety help. Getting worse.

    I'm halfway through my notice with 2 weeks left. I have anxiety anyway, but since working my notice it's been so bad. My anxiety is through the roof, I feel low and I'm having more panic attacks. I'm crying more. I don't know if I can last 2 more weeks. I'm considering seeing my GP. I'm not on...

    Erratic Writing, Speaking and Thoughts.

    As part of my recovery I've tried to notice the problems with myself, those which fuck up socialising. I have concluded that my racing thoughts, distorted speech and bad writing logic is the main factor which is making me anxious. Does anyone else notice this/ have any idea how to combat it? I...

    Coping Skill- TW maybe on integration?

    Hi! This has a brief background but it is more about a newer coping skill and would like your opinion on. Many years ago I was diagnosed with DID and through many years all my alters have pretty much integrated on their own. Not that I don't notice another every now and again but they are not...

    Weirdly aware of emotions - has any experienced something similar to this?

    Weirdly aware of emotions - has any experienced something similar to this? I have this problem where I'm too conscious of my feelings, and where they come from. I had what might have been mild depression one or two years ago, and it largely feels like it has passed, but this particular problem...

    Went to Dr who said they don't see any point of me going back and have signed me off complete notice period just so scared of telling work.

    Had i been a hacker.

    I would hack all of the bank accounts in my entire country. I would steal one cent from each of them. With about four hundred million in my nation that would be four million dollars. No one would notice at all.

    Coming Out of the black hole.. Finally

    I've always battled depression and anxiety. Since I was 13 years old. Now 24. A few years ago it hit me hard. Life wasn't worth living. I couldn't think straight. I didn't know what was going on. Every time I went into work I would break down. I was in a constant battle in my head. I didn't...

    I've been really depressed today. I still managed to get up and go to work today but I didn't want to. All I wanted to do was lay there and cry. I feel so hopeless, worthless, useless, etc. I just want to fall asleep and not wake up. I'm tired of my life. I don't think I can handle working yet...

    Cure for loneliness?

    I've recently come through a bad breakup and I'm feeling incredibly lonely. I have no family nearby, and no close friends (none that would necessarily contact me prior to me contacting them). It makes me wonder whether anyone would notice if I disappeared for a while? Anyway, making contact...

    just need a bit of understanding

    hi, I am pretty depressed at the moment but as this is a common thing for me people basically take no notice of it now. In fact they think I am ok. I have been on ADs for years and also have BPD, which tends to be the reason MH services take no notice. anyway I am so tired, at the end of my...

    Voice hearing experiences.

    I was imparting some of the voices I hear to the psychiatrist earlier, who pointed out to me that they were mostly derogatory, something I did'nt notice before. this made them up the med dose.
