    Hi I was put on a CTO and my capacity has been taken away. Does anyone have experience getting off the meds and the CTO? Also, the pdoc said I was paranoid. I was basically writing everything down he said.

    I talk too much for people

    I just don't follow norms... All my friends have jobs and they don't respond all the time because they are too busy, though they read my emails. I struggle between being myself and writing a lot, versus being polite or conforming.

    Claiming PIP

    I have a 21yr old son with learning disabilities. I would say his reading, writing and maths was similar to a 9yr old, if that. He hasn't been diagnosed with anything specific but he is very immature for his age.....when he visits me he often plays with Nerf guns with much younger children...

    I'm leaving :/

    No one really posts to my questions or concerns on here so I don't see a point in writing here anymore.

    Keep fighting. Never give up. You're the strong one.

    As I've mentioned in another anxiety forum thread, I have anxiety problems which give me obsessive intrusive thoughts, debilitating fatigue, and emotional numbness. I've been living with my problems for over 15 years but I'm not giving up. I have contact with a doctor who can hopefully prescribe...

    Am I okay?

    I've been feeling irritable and depressed. I start to think that work and school are meaningless. I want to be a writer, but I never get anything done... which might be my depression, but could also be my negative symptoms. It seems like I've been wasting time for too long. I haven't had a job...

    What to do with the voices you hear, how to put it into a book

    Snatch conversation writing :) If your hearing voices and you do not know how to cope with them you could turn them into snatched conversation . This means writing down a little bit of what the voice is saying but only a few lines not everything. Let’s say the voice says (in fact you’re mind is...

    Having trouble writing the letter "s".

    My anxiety is so bad I'm having trouble writing the letter "s". I try to write it and it takes a while and I can't explain it. I don't remember this happening before. Maybe I'm losing brain functioning? I don't know.

    Hi there... I would try and say it in other languages but is that a worthwhile use of my time?

    Hi there... I would try and say it in other languages but is that a worthwhile use of my time? The answer to the tile is no but it's more worthwhile than what I did write... Oh well nobody is perfect. So yeah I'm new to this and enjoy rambling on, you may have guessed. I'm from the UK, God...

But im done using this website, for a while. Reading others struggles made me appreciate my life more...

    Is this GAD? My mind keeps creating associations between things and anxiety, and they're ruining my life!

    fear pardox

    Hello! I am writing from Poland. If I fail, if I writing incoherently, this is the reason ;) I want to talk about popular paradox: When you're driving car, it is risk of accident. You could die. But most people are not scared. Often they're going too fast just for fun. When you're talking to...

    Thinking of writing a book

    Hello! As the title suggests I am interested in writing a book, specifically a book designed to help others understand how their friends/family/workmates may be feeling when suffering from depression/anxiety, since that is an issue which I and others like me often face. I am well aware that it...
