    You are beautiful inside

    It's been an odd day to say the least ! I'm still in a pretty dark place with an inner battle as to whether to keep going or not . There is something that really shone out today though . Even though we are all going through our own internal battles it is a wonderous thing to behold that even...

    Numb

    Hi all, Writing in my journal takes too long for me, because I have so much to write and it doesn't come out fast enough, so I thought, why not post here? I feel down, depressed, numb, call it what you want. I feel like crying. Scratch that, I feel like I am crying, but on the inside. Like if...

    When things are tough-describe how you feel with a sentence...

    Hi all, I have closed the original thread in the chill out cafe and created two "describe how you feel with a sentence" threads. A new one in the chillout cafe and another in experiences. The aim of the chill out cafe has always been for some time out from mental health struggles and a bit...

    My partner stops me from sleeping - advice sought

    My partner sleeps for a minimum of 14 hours a day usually in two 'shifts'. He can sleep at any time of day but unfortunately, I can't. I have to sleep during the hours of darkness. I am someone who doesn't need a huge amount of sleep - when I was younger and working full-time I could manage...

    Struggling with weight

    Soooooo, I've been struggling with an eating disorder off and on for about 12 years. I gained some weight when I moved into my boyfriends parents house. Now I'm struggling with what I am doing and it seems like the only surefire way I know to lose weight. How little is too little? Also, should I...

    Greetings!

    Salutations all! I recently discovered that group therapy is of no use to me; I feel incongruous and to me it's a waste of my time. So I thought giving a forum like this a try. :flowers: my struggles are real struggles but not indelible - so my focus at the moment isn't to erase them but keep...

    when is enough-ENOUGH?

    Sometimes/most of the time I wish someone else could be inside my head and understand all the struggles people with BPD (or like me with dual diagnosis-BPD & Bipolar 2) go through. I wish I was another person so bad sometimes. It's always the same thing over and over again. I feel like I'm not...

    What's The Point?

    What is the point of this life when there is so much pain and loss? Because of my illness I have lost my faith, my community, my friends. I just want to know what the point of living like this is. No one understands me, or why I react the way I do. No one understands my mental health...

    Hi, in the past i had a diagnosis of psychotic depression and for 17 years or so now i've been on antipsychotics and they seem to have exacted a terrible price - morbid obesity, diabetes, poor concentration, flatness etc. I'm now trying to wean myself off them. In the midst of this situation...

    Right or Wrong? The most complicated of all questions.

    For the people who have had great struggles in their mid-lives, after 5-10 years do you feel that it helped you? Also, if you had to take medication, do you feel that that helped you? The question relates to my mother, who I see now as far stronger than ever(having life threatening mental...
