    Wife has changed personality dramatically overnight

    Hello, I'm really worried that my wife may have had or does have PND or some other depression - and is medicating with drink and cocaine at weekends. I've NEVER used drugs. We have a 21 month old son (our first and planned) and bought our dream home nine months ago. We are the most tactile...

    How can I tell?

    How can I tell if a headache is just a headache or if one of them wants out? I get headaches quite frequently but I can't ever tell if it's because one of the alters wants out or if it's just a headache. Like right now I have a horrible headache and have had all day that I can remember. I've...

    I'm NOT manic

    My sister thinks I'm going manic. A volunteer in the charity I attend was "concerned" and contacted the mental health clinic on friday and they've made an appointment for me on monday. Its pretty much all because I'm jittery and not sleeping and not eating and "self" harming and cos I've made a...

    If life gets back to normal, then it never happened

    Letting myself feel good, be normal, go to the gym, go to work, get back to normal, be okay, that means it didn't happen. I don't know how to live normallly like everyone else, and still have this thing, this disorder and the nightmare experience that came along for the ride. I don't know how to...

    Special needs along with bipolar.

    So, I went to my doctor the other day and described the symptoms I've been having lately, some of which are old and some of which appeared after my first episode. The old symptoms include not being able to understand what one person in a conversation is saying before the next person starts...

    Feeling like I don't matter.

    Hey everyone. This is my first post and I just need to vent and I need some advice if possible. Just a little background before I get into my story--I am 20 years old and I have ADD which I take Vyvanse for, and I was prescribed Prozac for depression back when I was 18 but I stopped taking it...

    Special Diet

    Being on social assistance one of my friends was mentioning to apply for special diet. Are you able to get the special diet benefits for a mood disorder? Would prefer if there was a Canadian on here that could shed insight if not it's all good. Later gators.

    I'm not special to anyone

    I feel like a burden. They're only being nice because they feel obligated.. Maybe I think no one cares because I don't know how to care anymore. Did I ever even care? I can't remember. I don't know how to act anymore. Its just another day today. Nothing special, nothing to celebrate nothing...

    Psychosis - The Ultimate Ego Trip?

    I'm not saying this is valid for everyones psychosis, but its kind of put mine into perspective. The insight into what was going on comes out of a conversation with a Tibetan Buddhist practitioner friend of mine that started to break down my delusional architecture. In some ways I feel I fed...
