    Keep forgetting to take my antidepressant

    I keep forgetting to take my antidepressant, and I'm not doing so hot right now. I know it's my fault that I am sitting here at home, barely coping. Actually, not really coping at all. Avoiding all the things I need to do and sitting here watching Netflix and crocheting. Thinking about...

    What causes the human tailbone to wag/Dizzyness?

    So I haven't figured out specifically what makes the human tail wag other then its tied to emotion but that's known about dogs as well. wagging at different speeds seems to be related to attention. When your tail is wagging, and it slows down and then stops, its a sign you that you have become...

    Lurasidone (aka Latuda)

    Anyone tried this? I strted on it 3 days ago. I think it is making me more jumpy, less able to sit still. Which is less than ideal. Sitting still is one thing that helps me to stay alive.

    It had to be done. :eek2: Sometimes I can’t go and I refuse to take laxatives or any other oral medication to go. The quickest way to the problem is with an enema and it works immediately. I don’t have to worry about getting hit with the need to go, 3 hours later, when I’m sitting in my car...

    Over exercising

    I’ve always been a normal eater (far as calorie intake). My problem has always been exercising. I can do it for hours. Not keeping still but in constant motion. Not sure what that’s called. But I’ve messed my knees and back up. Making it impossible for me to run, anymore. I ran a lot for over 15...

    Sitting for long periods of time and often is bad for you?

    So last night as I was doing some research into exercise, i also searched through google about sitting for prolonged durations of time, which is what i do. The NHS says about how this is bad for you and can increase risk of diabetes, heart problems, etc and increase risk of dying earlier. I...

    Should I commit myself?

    Recently I've had a string of very bad experiences. My life has never been what I would call enjoyable - growing up in violent poverty, my friends dying or abandoning me, my family has all but shunned me - but recent events have pushed me past my limits. My mother, grandpa, uncle, and sister...

    Do I have social anxiety?

    I had dizzy spells every day for two years. I went on anti depressants 3 months ago and haven't had one since. Now I seem to get "close" to those same feelings of "about to get dizzy" when I am in a semi private social situation (being in an area with only a few people: 3-4, having dinner with...
