    I posted that I have an "unsettling feeling". I think it is akathisia. It is more internal than external, though. I wonder if there is a solution to this side effect.

    I know you will say yes but... My pdoc prescribed me Ativan months ago to use when I really need it. That's when I want to hit my head to the wall, namely, irritability, mixed episode etc. He never prescribed benzos before but on those days I was highly irritable. So, I have taken 15-16 times...

    Feeling Unhuman

    I'm not really sure if this has anything to do with mental illness, but I guess that's what I'm here to find out:unsure: It's difficult to describe, but I suppose in essence, the things that should be the most "natural" or "human," seem the most unnatural to me. The most prevalent examples of...

    I am really fed up with this life

    Never could I think of my life as the misery it is nowadays. Now that I have fallen into an abyss of loneliness and despair, no one even deigns to hear me, let alone understand and help.

    Fear of monsters keeps me up at night

    That's right, I can't fall asleep at night because I'm afraid of monsters attacking me. And I'm 18 years old, so it's kind of embarrassing.
