    Given up - The hypocrisy of people

    Hi all, Long story short; I've had mental health issues all my life, in and out of CAMHS from about 8 years old. When I was 21 I got diagnosed with Depression and Anxiety and put on meds. My doctor helped me off meds just as I moved country to a new job then 6 months later I was put off work...

    Trying to separate from depressed partner

    I tried really hard for 5 yrs to cope with my partner's depression and alcoholism but my health was suffering and things weren't improving. We are living apart now but he's in touch by phone and text continually. He is not coping well and I regret that. Tonight he's drinking and I'm waiting for...

    So angry and upset right now

    I'm so angry now and can't stop crying. I had an appointment with the psychologist today. My care coordinator told me this is when I'd start seeing the psychologist on a weekly basis (after already waiting over 3 months) and now I'm told by the psychologist it's only an assessment and I'll need...

    Break from therapy?

    She wants me to take a break from therapy. We are discussing it on Tuesday. I NEED therapy. I know I do. I'm just so scared if I stop therapy it'll be so much worse. I don't want to stop. I feel I can't stop. I'm so low and this is making me worse.

    It's been an interesting week. I haven't been on here for close to a week compared to being on most nights.

    I'm an IDIOT

    I haven't left the house for quite some time (I think last time I left the house was when I went to therapy on Tuesday). I have no motivation to do anything, except for B&P. I hadn't had soda for weeks until today I caved. My windows and mirrors are covered because I feel someone wants me dead...

    We are under a flood warning until Tuesday. The river is already flooding. I hope it doesn't get as bad as 2011, but I'm scared it will be. I didn't know where to put this. But this is affecting my well being.

    Why do I crash every week end?

    I just don't know why I crash every week end. I do absolutely nothing. I sleep in, watch CSI DVDs, eat crap, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, and then on Tuesday I go back to work and I'm fine. Sort of.
