    People don't believe I have delusions

    Hi everyone! So, I have delusions where I think people are following me, and watching me, and keeping tabs on me. I go to uni and the thing is I do want the uni to know I am sick but I am so afraid of judgement. I tell my university that I have a mental illness, but I don't specify...

    Help?

    Hi, I'm a 22 year old guy. I've been in and out of therapy since I was around 16. For the last 3-4 years I've pretty much been holed up in a number of flats, not really doing much of anything. I've been in university since I was 18, study a dumb music degree. I like playing tunes, that's why...

    Looks like I've reached the end of the line then...

    Disclaimer: I know countless people have it much worse than me, I’m being a little pathetic cry-baby right now but what the heck. I’m crying while I type this, that doesn’t sound like a big deal and it probably isn’t, but I’m never an emotional person so to cry for half an hour now is big for...

    Need Help

    So I have been struggling with anxiety and depression now for around 4 years. I guess the trigger was going to uni - not that uni was a bad place to be, in fact it was much better than living at home. I wouldn't say I wasn't an anxious person to begin with but during my first few months of uni...

    Ruining my future with my illness

    at the age of 12 I was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa, which over the years (i am now 18) included periods of bulimia and excessive binge eating. I would isolate myself, just dropping everything without a second thought, which evidently has affected my education. I used to be soo much...

    Hi

    Hi I don't really know what to say here. All I can say is the bad things that happened to me in life. First thing I was born with pretty bad parents. They didn't even believe I had mental health problems just because I looked normal to them. I have been depressed for a long time. I also...

    Got an appointment through for assessment

    So after the first referral was refused, my therapist wrote out another referral. I got the letter this morning with an appointment time. It's a relief but it has also hit me hard in some ways.

    Where do you think you'd be without BPD?

    Positives I think if I didn't have BPD I wouldn't be half as interesting. Never being content means I'm always looking for something new , I have random knowledge of all kinds of stuff and I think it catches people off guard because I don't look like I'd be interested in most if it. I don't...
