    New PTSD diagnosis

    Hi everybody, this is my very first time posting on a forum but I thought I'd see if it helps.

    I have anxiety

    I have really bad anxiety and it is during every second of the day. I worry about anything and everything and a lot of it stems around what people think of me and if I did anything wrong, stupid, or socially incorrect. I am insecure about my looks, my weight, and I get little surges of panic...

    I don't wanna be alive

    Hello! Since I was 6 years old, I think, I've experienced anxiety! Because, at the age of 6 I started to understand things, about who I was and how people expressed themselves about other people regarding ethnicity and apperance. I don't wanna tell you where I''m from, but I can say that one...

    People don't believe I have delusions

    Hi everyone! So, I have delusions where I think people are following me, and watching me, and keeping tabs on me. I go to uni and the thing is I do want the uni to know I am sick but I am so afraid of judgement. I tell my university that I have a mental illness, but I don't specify...

    Do you think hearing voices is always a symptom of insanity or not?

    I had a literal voice in my head every time I had a psychosis, but when not actually in a psychosis it just became more of a personality living in me. Anyway, I am writing about my experiences about escaping insanity in a web-page book "How to Escape Insanity" (easily googled). Do you think...

    Escaped from insanity undiagnosed mental illness with psychosis

    I recently escaped from extreme insanity (undiagnosed mental illness with psychosis) and no one seems to care or believe me. My psychiatrist just recommended another antipsychotic. Some people have made it clear to me that people do not recover from this type of thing and that I must have...

    Lingering psychosis symptoms

    I have been taking lamotrigine to treat bipolar disorder for a while now and it has helped tremendously. Before this, I went through delusions where I suddenly developed fake memories of people I know in reality and believed I could communicate telepathically through those memories. Despite...

    Changing Medication

    I am changing medications right now and I feel like my old depressed self but worse. I angrily react to the smallest things and shamefully realize it's nothing. Then proceed to hate myself for it. I push the people around me away to protect them from me and so I don't blow up with anger. I know...

    Compatible or not?

    I've been wondering for a while . .should two people with similar mental health issues date? I've always been with people that have similar diagnosis to me but I can't hold down a relationship. My relationships are always abusive (both sides) where we literally fight for dominance or one of us...

    Constantly under attack

    Hi everyone and thanks for all your support in getting me through my hard times. I wasn't sure what to name and title this. Long story short, I'm literally constantly under attack.

    What am I Doing?

    Man, often times I just wonder if I’m existent or existing... It seems like everywhere I go, I’m rejected or overlooked. And it’s not like I’m a bad person or my hobby is to bully people.. I’m actually pretty cool people. I’m nice to everyone. I love helping. But then that battle in the...
