    How to help a friend with severe depression and insecurities

    Hello everyone, I have a very close friend who has had to deal with depression for many years. She has attempted to take her life in the past and is currently displaying some behaviors similar to that time although I don't think it's likely she will. However, it does indicate she's in a bad...

    Has anyone dealt with the burden of taking care of someone, especially you having panic attacks as a result? How did you overcome them?

    I'm going through this problem, and I want to hear your story for encouragement. How hard was it for you to take care for someone? How did you deal with the stress, especially the panic attacks? Did you have hope that it would turn around? If religious, how did your faith play a part?

    Do you guys ever wake up one day and feel uncomfortable around someone you like even though they didn’t do anything or haven’t changed?? Everything they do seems a little bit cringey in a way and when they try to interact with you it makes you annoyed?? This happens every time I make a friends...

    My friend worries me

    So I am looking for a wide range of responses and opinions of any kind whether you have experience or feel you can relate. A close friend of mine has been depressed for a while now, never understood why, never delved too deep in why, just gave him the support he needs. Whenever he has had a...

    It saw psychosis, schizo-affective, bipolair and schizophrenia appear on paper. It is favored, it understands the intention, but it is not true. It is well-intended, blessed but needlessly painful that this is made up for not yet feeling emotions, observing thoughts and opening the mind. These...

    Helping My Children

    My ex wife has BPD. At least this is my non-professional diagnosis after many years of a confusing marriage. It was the main cause of our marriage failing. I moved out a few years ago and our relationship is much better now. I'm no longer compelled to put up with her moods or try to fix things...
