    Does anyone hear like trains on a track noises? Also very distant voices that you can't make out what they are saying? It's driving me mad!! Is this worth telling anyone about? X

    Off my meds

    I decided to come off my venlafaxine last Wednesday, having increased my dose to 300mg without increased effect. I am feeling worse than ever and last night I felt like I was completely out of control. I have been on them for more than 6 years and they have been the only ever medication to work...

    finding life so hard

    I don't really know what to say other than I'm struggling so much. It takes everything just to move. I know there's nothing anyone can do to help me. I just feel like it's not worth them trying anymore. Sorry. Don't know how to explain properly.

    I may apply for ESA.

    I may make an appt with my GP. and tell him I wish to go on ESA. It is worth a shot, I reckon.

    Will professional aid even help me?

    This morning i woke up and instead of going to work i emailed my boss and told him i wouldn't be coming in again. I just felt like quitting and so i did, because what's the actual point in even going to work. I have to grind my ass off to make somebody else very rich. No thanks. Just lately...

    What makes you feel worth it?

    Okay so I don't do too well at feeling good about myself. In fact most of the time I struggle to say what is good about me. What I have achieved or whether I am a nice person... Although when I am low all I feel is that I am bad and wrong and unworthy I would like to start focussing on what I am...

    something i've decided to try

    it's called the self soothing kit. you just choose 1 item for each of your 5 senses- and when you get the urges, you are meant to get the box out with the items- and they help distract you. read about this somewhere and thought it may be worth a shot anyone else tried it?. or thinking about...

    Enough is enough

    Think I should go now. I've had enough. Can't handle it. Not suppose to tell anyone how I really feel. Nobody can help me. So alone. So scared. Don't trust myself. Don't want to be a burden. Don't want people worrying about me. I'm not worth it. Samaritans don't help. Nobody can.
