    I'm going to stop going to the appointments.

    Because I'm tired of the pills, of the waste of my time and theirs. They're only fucking "helping" because that's how they make a living. I'm tired of talking about me, me, me. Me and my fucking problems. I don't know anything about him or her. And who the hell are they to tell me that they know...

    " I'm sorry, I couldn't make that out, what were you just thinking?"

    " I'm sorry, I couldn't make that out, what were you just thinking?" Try thinking " I'm sorry, I couldn't make that out, what were you just thinking?" to real people and in mockery to your voices. Then realize that 0% of your time is spent listening to other people's thoughts, worrys, or...

    Sexual Disfunction with Invega

    Just begun Invega over the past few weeks and feel like a unic. I think invega is basicly risperaldal and had the same problem with this in the past as well as chronic constipation. I mentioned my concern with the shrink and was just shrugged away as nothing to worry about, and not worthy of...

    I don't have an art style. I feel depressed about this.

    I feel like I don't have a certain style. I like many artists like Tove Jansson and John Bauer. But you see, they have a certain style. And it catches peoples attention. This is some of my work: I don't know what to do.

    Whose opinion is valid?

    i find it hard to take a lot of the opinion of most health professionals seriously. i can't take the armchair psychology / psychiatry & pseudo analysis of the untrained mentally ill & 'normal's' with hardly any seriousness at all. i am reaching a stage where i don't care what anyone else thinks...

    Depersonalisation vs psychosis

    Derealization as it's also called is what I struggle with most with my BPD. I read somewhere once that it is a distortion of reality as opposed to psychosis which is a loss of reality. What are people's thoughts? Do u suffer the same as me? If so what are your symptoms?
