    What causes mental illness.

    The love of money is the root of all evil. Money makes the world go round. What causes mental illness? Money. Simple as that.

    I don't want to go out

    Some days i get like that, the thought of going out is too anxiety provoking. Was given recipe with option to go out over the weekend and get ingredients but stayed in. Rehab team are due round and i am thinking of making up an excuse to put them off. Bed is very tempting.

    Back on meds - mixed feelings

    It's all just got a bit too much the last couple of weeks topped off by a massively distressing phone call with a ruddy junior doctor from my GPs surgery yesterday (my practice is a teaching practice). She clearly wasn't experienced enough to be dealing with someone like me and the GP...

    I may be headed for another high! Got super hyper playing games after dinner with friends this evening. I won nearly every round and with every round I won I got more and more intense and excited. Hope I can come down without a big crash. Don't want to up my quetiapine again.

    How do you deal with people dismissing your disorder?

    Today at work, for the first time I told someone that I have social anxiety, they then proceeded to totally put me down, saying that she knew someone who was much worse than me, and so basically I was making a fuss over nothing. This one reason why I don’t talk to anyone, as I always reveal...
