    Get medical help...

    ...seems to be the stock response from most people the moment you utter the words depression or anxiety. Medication aside... if you cannot trust people, and have pushed away those closest to you including family and friends as a result of severe depression, how can you place your undivided...

    Has anyone had anything like this happen?

    As far as I was concerned my dx was paranoid PD as on official correspondence that was what it said. However at my recent appointment the pdoc asked what I thought of my diagnosis. I said I didn't think paranoid PD was a good fit. He said that what he'd received from my old trust was that it...

    No voice hearers in Torbay, Devon

    The group was shut down by the MH trust. Pretty much indicative of Devon all over health wise.

    Feel like everyone's my enemy

    Hi all :) I'm a 20 year old bloke. Since my early teens I have been highly mistrustful of people. Growing older I seem to have become more cynical and more misanthropic than I'd like to be. I can't seem to shake the idea that people are inherently self-serving and selfish. I have friends who...

    Do You Trust Your Psychiatrist?

    I hope I'm posting this in the right place. But do any of you trust your psychiatrist? I don't trust mine. I'm always terrified they'll say something about me to get me kicked off my benefits. Or I'm afraid they'll lock me in a mental institution against my will. I'm afraid they judge me and...

    BPD, Isolation and Trust

    I ruined a friendship not long ago. Got pushy and mean. Feeling pretty lousy about it, but I'm such a stubborn SOB I won't back down or admit my true feelings. I've been alone a very long time. Almost no social contact or activities. This has taken a very heavy toll on my mind. Not much better...
