    Salutations to everyone.

    Hello, I'm new here. I actually came across this forum by Googling "Schizophrenia forums", because I was hoping to find a place where I could get some answers to my always curious mind. I was diagnosed with Schizophrenia a year ago this coming January by my Psychiatrist. When I came to her to...

    In the end there was only regret

    I don't know where to start. But, I guess I am writing this to pull myself away from the edge. I may just be overthinking, I mean that has been the only thing I could do for the past few years as I seem to have lost most of my emotions. I've finished college in my late 20's, money was from my...

    20+ year diagnosis

    I got diagnosed when I was 20. It's been almost 4 years. I understand strategies and techniques may change as time goes on. Anyone in there 40s or 50s and diagnosed fairly young. What has made you the most stable? Maybe medication or lifestyle wise? Are you generally doing well and...

    Ready to give up!

    While having my morning brisk walk to work this morning it dawned on me that my life just sucks, and generally thought would anyone even notice if I weren't here anymore. Been on Citalopram for the last 9 months solid, after taking them sparingly for short periods over the last 10 years. I've...

    Strange

    I remember me and my friend fooling around (both male) when we were younger (I was 9 & he was 1 year younger) and for the past 3 days I have been unable to get much rest because this has been playing on my mind in the most severe way. I have a fear of not being able to sleep because it makes me...

    Guilt and Shame, Comparing Myself to Others

    It seems I can only be kind to others, and not myself. I have struggled with issues related to depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember. At twenty-six years old, I have a full-time job, but nothing in the way of a career... and I want to change that. I have several younger...

    Trying to make sense of the last 30 years.

    Hi everyone. My divorce finished a few months ago after being married over 30 years. I think I may move forward better if I understand what happened. Perhaps this is not the right place for 'victims'. If so please advise. Without going over all the characteristics of BPD or ASPD I can say that...

    Teaching Mental Health In Schools

    It occurs to me that we are so focused on the right school and universities we are failing to teach our kids some super basic stuff about Mental Health. Families (my own included) focus on Achievement and give zero coaching on how to actually be successful or fulfilled or balanced or happy or...

    I'm not even sure where to start my story is long and confusing and I don't know what I am but I have an appointment with the doctor later today and I guess I just need to get it out before then for fear of blabbing uncontrollably. It started around 6 weeks ago when I was cut out of the life...

    It's never going to end is it

    Something was said yesterday in the village shop which really shocked me and made me so distressed I could scarcely get myself back to the house through the haze of tears which I couldn't stop from falling in floods and tides. I was in the queue waiting to buy my milk for the day and these two...

    What to do with my sick younger brother...

    Hello, this is my first time posting and I'm not sure where to post this so if it needs to be moved to a different area that is fine. My younger brother suffers from mental illness (me and my family are pretty sure its schizophrenia, as it runs in our family) and refuses to be diagnosed or take...
