    Psychosomatic Symptoms & Depression

    Hi Everyone, So I went out for sushi yesterday with a buddy of mine. A good hour and a half into the evening I without paying attention took a fair sum of wasabi and ate it. It was a little bothered, but soon after it stopped bothering me. However, I remembered reading something on the dangers...

    I was raped.

    I haven't told anyone but I needed to say It somewhere. It took me a year to accept that I had been raped. I made every excuse for it. He was my boyfriend. I wanted to have sex with him earlier. But the truth was, hours later, I was blackout drunk. I did not consent at that time. An intoxicated...

    Hi. Not really sure what sort of thing I’m meant to write on here but I am seriously struggling and feel as though I have nowhere to turn. I have suffered from depression and anxiety for as long as I know but I am the worst I have ever been at the moment. I have never had suicidal thoughts...

    I have been on this Earth for 44 years and I do not want to end it inconsequentially. I will continue to live without deviation. However, if death comes I welcome it. I am tired and no amount of talking or drugs will persuade me of this belief. The normal life struggle for me is almost...

    Thank you

    Hi, This is the first time I’ve ever joined a forum. I was in bed staring at the ceiling at 4am and decided to do a search. I have bipolar disorder and bpd apparently.

    Perhaps anxiety is more what I have

    I used to suffer quite a bit from social anxiety, even in my teens, but what I'm observing now is a bit odd. My thoughts seem to seek for stuff to be anxious about, and it slowly builds up during the day until I experience a kind of crisis of anxiety and I can't sit still anymore. I start to...

    I want to harm myself and others

    Is this normal behaviour for someone with depression? I won't go into specifics of course, but I keep on having thoughts of harming myself and my family (not kill, though). I'm quite concerned about this though in case I actually go through with something at one of my worst moments.
