    A little bit lost

    My story is I think too long to put here, at least I don't think anyone could or would be willing or able to read all of it. I suppose I will end up writing a lot anyway. I am coming here out of, I suppose, a degree of desperation. I have had many therapists and many pills over I guess now at...

    I wanted to say a thank you to people on this forum because it has been such a great support tool for me. It's very difficult for me to vent or seek advice with people in the real world if I am struggling, so this is a really important place for me. Most of the time people here try to help and...

    Hi, so I’ve just signed up because I am feeling pretty low at the moment, so I was hoping to just find somewhere to talk about how I feel and stuff. - female - 21 - live in the UK - love birds (and pretty much all animals☺️) - for the sake of anonymity, I’d like to just go by “Para Siempre” 😂

    Falling back into old patterns

    Not sure if this is the appropriate forum, but given my condition, I think it is. I'm a 26 year old guy. Last year I was diagnosed with type 1 bipolar with psychotic features, along with schizophrenia and pstd. I was in therapy and on medication. I was doing pretty good and my therapist said...

    Whatever Happens ...

    "... I'll be OK." That's what I sad to my Dad over the phone one time when I was experiencing heavy symptoms and had to go to a Hospital several miles away (rather than the usual local one). And although it was another difficult time, eventually I was OK. And I think that applies to the...

    My Partner told me he's had enough and isn't comming back.

    Hello, After pushing my boyfriend away he has decided not to return and says he can't do this anymore. The cause of this, is because I hate myself so much and have constantly been speaking to him about how great his ex girlfriend is and that I'd never be able to reach her standards of beauty...

    No voice hearers in Torbay, Devon

    The group was shut down by the MH trust. Pretty much indicative of Devon all over health wise.

    Hi. New member

    How long does it last?

    Almost from day one I felt as though I may be struggling with my baby and feeling very depressed a lot of the time. I put this down to the circumstances surrounding my pregnancy and the fact that I'm doing pretty much everything as a single parent. But now my son is a year and a half and I still...
