That 'Flight' moment

So, you ever seen that movie Flight with Denzel Washington? It's good right!

You know the last scene where he says he had reached his lifetimes limit of lying? Couldn't tell one more lie? Well, I think I've reached that point.

This is my first post on this forum and I'm not sure it's in the right place. Maybe the moderators will move it to the right one. Anyway, this is ...

Need Help! Pre Employment Physical

Hello everyone,

I begin my new job in mid-November. I need to have a physical beforehand, which I assume is to make sure I can perform my work duties. My question is this: I already know that they will ask about my current medications etc. Now, I need advice about this. I take medication for Bipolar 1 and I am VERY nervous that I will be labeled as a crazy and denied my employment because ...

PD's and personality type

I did the Myers-briggs test a while ago and although the test is rather old I am really amazed by how accurately it describes my personality. I did the test first time when I was in high school, then again 10 years later & got the same results. I am having avoidant traits, and got INFP.

If you guys have the time, take the test and report the results.
It would be interesting to see ...

Need a rehab center!

My brother in law is in need of major rehabilitation and I am trying to find a non profit one. If anyone knows of any that he can be sent to please let me know, it can be anywheres but in Louisiana b/c that is where he lives and we rather not have him do this so close to home. Maybe like a charitable rehab or something along those lines. Thanks

How To Get Unbiased Professional Assessment?

I have been in and out of mental health services for 11 years starting at age 15. It seems like every professional I have ever seen is convinced that (A) something different is wrong with me, and (B) the other professionals were either entirely or partially wrong.

I am very easily lead by the nose and persuaded, mostly because I am unable to trust my own perceptions of my mental and emotional health, combined with ...

Possible signs of mental illness?

I suspect that I may have some signs of mental illness, which I'm having difficulty coming to terms with.
To begin, i'd like to give you guys some background information.

My mother died back when I was 12. At the time, being a teenager chalk full of hormones, I wasn't really self aware. I began cutting myself around that time but eventually I got over that phase. Throughout middle school, I made plenty of acquaintances ...

My messed up head.

I didn't know whether to post this in relationships, bpd, schizophrenic, bipolar or sexual abuse forum.

I am ill I cut down my medication and my thinking started to change. I find myself thinking that life with my abusive ex who sexually abused me for years was actually fun because there was more passion.

I hear voices they encourage me to go back to him.

I feel so traumatised from my childhood I don't know ...

My sister is 33 years old and she had got 3 psychotic episodes till now. They all came at the same time in the year, something between October/November (November 2010, October 2013 and October 2014).

What could this be?

I was debating whether or not to put this in the General Health section or not, but here it goes.

Whenever I get tired, I try and stay up a little longer. I enjoy staying up late, I'm young. But whenever it get to the point where I say "Alright, it is time for teh night nights," ans I crawl into bed, and I get comfortable, and I just lie there for quite some time, ...
