    the story of my life

    It is quiet. Around here, around me. In me. Birds stopped singing, trees stopped moving, waters stopped flowing. Everything came to a halt. It is silent. Who am I? What is my purpose here? Will I ever have a purpose? Will I be fighting alone in my life? Alone. Lonely. Will I be able to cope with...

    Struggle to take my meds

    I have an appointment with my psychiatrist this week, which I really need as I'm struggling a lot, but I'm also scared because I haven't been taking my fluoxetine. I was on the highest dose but just stopped taking it, which I know is really stupid. I don't think I have taken it for over a week...

    Should i go back to therapy

    I heard therapy makes you feel worse before it makes you feel better. But how long does it take to feel better? I went to therapy with one very sweet caring involved therapist for a year and a half. By that time I was totally re traumatized and stopped going. It made me feel suicidal. Then I had...

    I need an urgent reply from ALL of you plzz

    I have told you in my previous thread about my therapist that I am very close to her because she was always available 24/7 but now she has changed her attitude. Although I know this is right attitude because she wants me to become strong (I assume this reason because she hasn't told me). But...

    So I kind of messed up

    Hey guys, so I kinda messed up. I stopped taking my medication. I didn't deliberately stop I just kept missing dosages or forgetting to take them to a point I'd convinced myself I was fine without them. I'm a total mess by no surprise and I would just start taking them as normal again but they...

    Got diagnosed

    I haven’t been on here in a good while, but since then I’ve finally gotten my diagnosis: schizoaffective disorder, depressive type. I can’t say I’m surprised, considering during my last episode I was so delusional that I stopped eating because I thought I was going to be kidnapped and I believed...

    Is this relationship fufilling me

    So as someone who has been fighting mental health for 5 years now. I found myself in a relationship. I am so happy and he makes me so happy. He treats me well and is so caring. However I keep getting this feeling of loneliness emotionally from him. I don't think I ask for much and perhaps...

    I'll try and keep this to the point. Basically in 2013, during my second year at university, I was walking home from a night out alone and I was attacked by a man who sexually assaulted me. I have always suffered with social anxiety, but up until that point it was manageable. After I was...

    Here I go feeling down again

    Yay me, I had finally stopped having suicidal thoughts, hell I'd even entirely stopped thinking about anything near it. Just until today.

    Hello, you guys are my only outlet on this, since anyone else I tell will probably put me on medication in a heartbeat. I stopped medication a little more than a month ago. I had gradually diminished it with my psychiatrist over a year and a half, but she didn’t agree on my stopping, and I don’t...

    Unofficially Dead

    I have stopped living. My brain has stopped functioning. I have no motivation to do anything besides refresh the same websites over and over again. I have no passions anymore. I have no future. There is no hope for me. The only reason I am still breathing is because my death would leave my...
