    Decided to Open Up About Myself

    Hey all! My name is Juuso, I am from Lapland, Finland. I have had various mental health problems since from very young age (OCD, anxiety, panic, insomnia), and I had very long time the taboo that only like really crazy people go to therapy why I avoided it, I also think there might be the...

    Fed up

    I'm sick and tired of feeling depressed, hopeless, suicidal. Nothing seems to be improving. I'm a fat, ugly failure. I have tried so many times to be "positive" but it just doesn't last. My antidepressants clearly aren't working. I don't want to kill myself because I know my mum just wouldn't...

    Howdy doody

    I am now an official member of the mental health forum where losers like me cry about their problems and others fake the empathy cause they got nothing better to do. What a life.

    Hiya, I decided to sign up to this just so I had somewhere to put all my thoughts. I've been dealing with some issues for the past few years (since around Year 10- I'm now an undergraduate, so roughly 4 years). I'll probably put up a more detailed post in an appropriate section later. I...

    Building a better boat

    I have suffered in silence for as far back as I can remember. I was close to ending it a few months ago until I decided to seek help. I have severe anxiety and depression problems. I’m starting to pull out of it a bit.

    Hi, so basically I joined up because sometimes I feel speaking to others who also live with mental health problems is far easier then speaking to those who don’t necessarily have any experience with mental health problems. So Hi I’m Devilyn and maybe I’ll speak with a few of you soon. I have...

    Getting off of seroquel

    My doctors assistant met with me since my doctor was on an emergency call. This assistant heard not one thing I said and gave me samples of Latuda to start taking and he told me to stop my 200mgs of Seroquel. I told the provider I have been taking seroquel for 14 years but he said go ahead and...

    another bad day...

    I've only posted once here. I don't even know what to say, i'm just feeling really bad. I don't want to bother anyone, work just sucks. Drama drama drama. And my boss doesn't help and doesn't want to hear me out. --That and the way she speaks to me about anything about this just sucks. She was...

    BED - Managing the gap between diagnosis and treatment

    Hi, all. After a long period of trial/denial/fear, I spoke with my GP on Thursday and he agrees that I am deep into BED territory. I have a fasting blood test on Wednesday of next week with an appointment the Wednesday after for the results so we can eliminate any underlying conditions or...

    Goodbye: I'm leaving this forum

    I'm leaving this forum, to who it may or may not concern. Once this thread goes up I'm deleting this account and I will not be back. I've disabled my yahoo account because everyone's blocked me there too. I'll just cope with my problems on my own because nobody understands me nearly as much as I...

    Relationship problems and BPD

    Surprise, surprise. I'm having relationship problems and I need help. Every single time I meet someone I like I begin a very unhealthy pattern. I feel so intensely that I message them or seek them out all the time. Sometimes, in the beginning, they're flattered and seem to enjoy the attention...

    I need love

    It's so hard, I get hit on by my friend but he is one of the most stable and reliable people I know action wise. He is respectful and it is just his intrusive advances that bother me. He also has other problems, some ego and pride and a lot of emotion and can be a little vulgar and nosy. But...

    I had this treatment back in the 70s. The whole experience including hospitalisation did make me ill and I never properly recovered. Now I have the idea that having the same treatment now may reverse things or maybe even hide the memories of that time which are causing a lot of problems for me...

    Hi First time post. For half my life, I have suffered bowel problems which have led to numerous operations, some quite invasive and some with significant complications. The initial problems have settled down over the last few years but I have been left with other problems due to the amount of...

    Tinker the Psycho

    Tinker gets the itches and I spray her back and legs with an anti-itch spray. She doesn't like it, but it stops the itching. After I spray her, she goes into the bedroom and sulks. How mean I am. She is afraid I'll grab the anti-itch bottle and spray her, so she avoids me. I don't like doing it...

    new person

    I found this online sight today because I don't like talking to people about my issues who can't relate. I don't think I will get any better but it will sure be great if I'm able to find others who have similar problems. That will make me happy. So hello everyone!
