    Coming off the pills

    Could anyone share their experiences of coming off antidepressants? I am almost off after a gradual reduction over the last 9 months. It would really help me to know of others’ experiences as I don’t know anyone who has been in this position. Many thanks

    Stuck in a random cycle of foot problems

    I've had this problem with my left foot for probably over 6 months now It's really weird because it comes and goes at what seems to be completely random, some days it is about an 8/10 on the pain scale(also my foot will feel very stiff and I won't be able to relieve the pressure); which is when...

    Should I leave my church?

    This isn't something that anyone else can answer for me, and I know that. But after thinking and praying about it I still just don't know. Maybe it will help to write it all out in the open. Reasons to stay: - I vowed at baptism to be faithful to my church. - They are like a second family to...

    Some People Might Say....

    Getting your life back. It's hard to be confident even if you are quite right and fit and well lol :) It can be made a hell of a lot harder by the negative comments, attitudes and criticisms of others, especially if their intention would seem to come from a position of making things harder for...

    What are your goals for next year?

    This year for me has been all about recovery following a section last year and a diagnosis of schizophrenia. Next year, it will be about making lengthy, confident strides forward. This year I returned terrified to the workplace in a part-time position which hasn't been exactly taxing. But I...

    I think, therefore I am... but not?

    I’m sure you know Descartes’ saying “I think, therefore I am”. It points to a profound identification of the I with the mind. But it struck me this morning that much of eastern philosophy is concerned with getting the human being to let go of the mind and to take the position of a watcher...

    Being selfish or pleasing others.

    I have a habit of pleasing others at my own expense, normally just for a quiet life. I've got a real dilemma now at work. I'm in for two new positions my preference is position A, I've been offered position B. My manager wants me to take it and will be pretty pussed off if I don't, it's a good...

    Agency Contracting

    They really take the pi**. An agency called me confirmed that I was starting work tomorrow. They just had to let the client clarify a few details. Another agency company calls about an hour later and says they want me to start today. But I had already committed to and accepted the first...

    I am still that scared kid standing in front of my scary mom

    ...except it's not my mom anymore, it's a coworker who's bullying me at work, and I am so pissed but I can't stand up to her because I am a coward. Why, after so much freaking therapy, do I still find myself in this position? I need to be assertive, but instead, I freeze. She yells at me and...

    Waste of time

    Does anyone else think this place is a waste of fucking time? I'm not having a go but people just seem to respond to each other telling them what not to do. Clearly everyone on here has problems so why would they give an other person advice when they're hardly in the position to do so. Also in...

    The message of Ali, a realtive of the Prophet Mohamed, the first and the last

    The message of Ali, a realtive of the Prophet Mohamed, the first and the last Ali never took up the position of Mohammad, never demanded it or killed for it. He avoided it, as others christened empire, fighting for position, he stood on the side lines. At one point he was called, so he took a...

    How cruel is the state

    I've got a lot of health problems and suffer anxiety and severe depression on top of that. I don't get much help apart from meds and financial assistance from the government but surely it's downright cruel that someone in my position has to suffer for so long with no help or respite from that...

    Chat with Crises Team last night

    I am struggling to keep alive and am being contacted by phone daily. I can phone the CT out of hours. I chose this care plan because hospital is out of the question as a therapeutic choice. The CT worker did actually help even though today I am hanging by a thread. She did tell me something...
