    Psych Referral

    My counselor referred me to a psychiatrist this afternoon, and sent forms to my family doctor for psychiatric intervention (whatever that actually means). I'm supposed to see him (my family doctor) first thing in the morning and I'm terrified. I feel like when I go he's going to dismiss me and...

    Nausea from anxiety. Please help :(

    My name’s Holly and I have been dealing with anxiety for 11 years now. Basically the only uncomfortable sensation that I experience is nausea, which has developed into a fear of throwing up/vomiting. This fear is obviously a result of me throwing up during certain panic attacks or at least my...

    So, I'm bipolar, but there's this girl...

    This girl I have a history with has been recently been diagnosed with BPD. She's intermittently receptive to my feelings, but on the other end of the spectrum, she starts arguments and finds reasons I shouldn't have feelings for her. Is it a bad idea to try to build a relationship with her? I...

    I'm a first class twat guys and I'm sorry. Just as I thought things were sorted I go and do something stupid and make an idiot of myself-some of it on here as well. Better off throwing me in a skip and listening to members who really know what they're talking about. Sorry again. x

    Still Throwing Up

    I don't know why I've been throwing up along with diarrhea. At first I thought it was because I missed a few days taking my Cymbalta. I threw up once yesterday and passed multiple bowel movements (sorry if this is too much info) and felt well enough to have some toast. I also took my...

    Why do I do this to myself?

    I have forgotten to take my anti-d for a few days again, and I can feel it's only a matter of time before I start throwing up. I get these most God awful burps, and that is the indicator I'm going to start throwing up, and I'm starting to break out into a horrible sweat. I've taken some...

    I randomly get weird urges. If im in the car i will get an urge to pull on the hand break. When im walking by a river/canal/the sea i get urges to push people in. Sometime i feel like throwing a drink over someone or something, Its usually when im startting to go further down.

    Sorry for writing again. The hospital got in touch with my doctor who is friends with my foster mum, consequently she now knows and wants to talk about it. I know she will throw me out and I want to do s/h now just to feel something. If she is throwing me out I may as well. Nothing to be scared...
