    I'm addicted to someone who is terrible for me

    Prejudice & Favouritism In the MH System

    This is something that's still a huge issue for me. Many times I've heard staff talk about Patients who have Bi-Polar like they are extremely special (even when they've done terrible things). Bi-Polar's will always deny it but they get the best deal by far in the MH System.

    Not sure where to start really. I've had depression for many years. Last night I self harmed. My 15 year old son knows what I did and I've had to talk to him about it. I feel such a terrible mother for putting him through this. It was totally my fault as I had alcohol and I know I just can't...

    Do you see yourself as an outcast of society and a total loser, reject? Mental illness isolates you; doesn't matter your psychiatrist says you have to get out and meet people, you will still be alone. Normal people in a group stare at you and wait for you to say something stupid. Ever notice how...

    Over thinking

    Does anyone have a therapist? I've been referred to a new one after quite a few failed attempts at help and I'm freaking out. What will the place be like? Who will they be? Will it be like the other times. Will they help me or judge me. I can't do group therapy sessions as I'm to awkward and...

    Terrible State

    I'm in Bed mostly and feeling totally wretched. I'm Alone far too much. Feel like Overdosing but scared of what happens at Hospital. Wouldn't like to pass away alone. The suffering is terrible and my coping ability is waning rapidly. No Motivation or pleasure at all. Not a Life Worth living.
