    Suicidal thoughts

    Hi there. I have not posted in a long time but tonight I am having some bad thoughts. I'm trying not to engage with these thoughts and images but it just won't go away. I don't know what has triggered this but felt if I reached out they may go away.

    My experience.

    I've been here once before and now I'm here again. I'll talk about the first time I ever experienced this, which was three years ago when I suffered withdrawals from my anti-depressant medication. It triggered off depersonalisation in me and I had it for roughly 3 months. During that time I...

    Lamest Intro Ever

    I dunno what to say really. I've been dealing with mental health issues for over half my life now (I'm only 26). Some really stupid, irrelevant, minute bs happened tonight and for some reason it really triggered me. So here I am.

    I need a break.

    I've been feeling really triggered and just feel like I'm pushing everyone away. I have been having a hard time trusting my therapist, and she just keeps things so light and casual, while I'm feeling like shit at home. I don't know how much longer I can handle going to her, if I am not even...

    Advice for Dealing with Mom That Gets Triggered

    So basically, my clothing rack broke and then my mom got triggered. She used that to say that I bought too much clothes (which I have stopped doing after I went to therapy and got out of depression) and then she said that I'm in limbo for getting my bachelor's degree (now I'm currently finishing...

    Been doing everything thing I should then start to crack

    Great. Quit drinking. Changed to a more effective med. And still just one thing can start sending me paranoid and stressed. Well I know what triggered me and my symptoms were not severe but it shows me that I can be triggered even if I don't drink. Kind of wondering what the hell to do...

    New relationship & borderline personality

    I am in a new relationship of 6 months. I was diagnosed with BPD a few years ago & I am receiving regular therapy treatment. I was very honest with my new partner about my diagnosis when we first met. Over the past few weeks, I have been triggered by comments that have reminded me of my past...

    Hello :)

    I'm new here. I'm struggling with severe anxiety and panic attacks at the minute, and have suffered with depression in the past. I had a career change last year which I think may have triggered it a little. I'm really finding it tough to cope lately and could just do with some like-minded...

    Just been for my depot

    Got the talk on what you would rather be, delusional or on meds. Wish they gave you that choice in the hospital before they force medication down your throat. Mentioned that I went 4 years once without meds and they said yes but you relapsed. My reply was yes but I triggered that relapse by...
