    What has happened to him? I need some advice? I’m stressed out!

    Nick (my ex psychiatric nurse) used to pass me in the way to work of the morning every now and then. I’m also friends with his sister on Facebook but I do not know her personally. I look often to see if he has liked his friends posts as that is a great indication that he had been active and...

    A couple questions

    Good morning all, so when I first saw a therapist I remember her having me take a dpd test on my second visit, I saw her about 4 times before I ran into money issues so it's been a while since I've been able to see her. The test made it seem like in order to have the problem you had to feel like...

    Anxiety, mental fogginess, emptiness, emotional disconnect, social estrangement...

    My mental health story seems so long and complex that I don’t even know where to begin, although I guess most people who have struggled with mental health problems probably feel that way since the issues themselves are so internal and so chronic. I guess I’ll just go chronologically and try to...

    The Burden of Obsession

    Hey everyone, I'd just like to share my experiences with you guys - I'm curious to hear your thoughts. I find myself constantly on edge, in the sense that relaxation is an impossibility. If I am busy I am a lot more 'relaxed' in a sense. I never truly feel calm, and I find it hard to enjoy...

    I feel like a failure at everything.

    My name is H. I'm a 40 year old mother and I can say I think being a mom is the one thing, the only thing I have ever done right. I love my kids and think I'm doing a pretty good job of raising them. I live with a great husband, who loves us more than anything. I feel like I'm caught up in...

    Feel like Im stuck in a hard place (health related)

    So, Ive been to the dentist, and it turns out my stress from the last few years has damaged a lot of my teeth through developing bruxism. It's filed most of my front teeth flat and moved some out of place. I feel like my smile is hideous now and it really upsets me. If I carry on the way I am, I...
