I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place, it seemed like the only subforum my question could go under.
Is it a good or bad idea to schedule a time to express your negative feelings, but to push them away at other times? Say it's a daily thing, in the evening, not too close to bedtime. And at that time you would just focus solely on negatives; venting about things that happened to you ...
Can people with mental disorders maintain a society and a country?
If there is a country and a society with only people with mental disorders will it be possible for people with mental disorders to maintain the society and country or do we lack the necessary skills to run a society and country?
I've been a lurker on these boards for awhile and have gotten up my courage to post.
I struggle with BPD, major depression, long term chronic pain, anxiety and life in general. Had a very rough childhood (as many have had), have had seriously abusive relationships and have struggled throughout much of my life. I know I need help, coaching and instruction on how to function like a normal, balanced human being.
I posted this on another forum because I think I have Narcissitic Personality Disorder. I also used to think that I had OCD/Anxiety in the past few months because of all of the worries that go on in my head. I've never been officially diagnosed with anything, I just need some advice because I don't want to be a person who lacks empathy/understanding.
For the past few months I'm not sure if I've become self-aware ...
Question: I'm not quite sure what's going on. I've been on antidepressants for over a week now. The other day I was praying to God to end my life. It was as if he put the words in my mind (not hear God...my voice, but his words) saying it would be ok. I need to wait to see a psychiatrist but last few days am beginning to feel both up and down simultaneously (it's a ...
I am desperate for answers on why I push people away who I love dearly.
I feel so lonely
I'm looking for a sight where I can receive feedback on a letter I've written to a county official regarding a controversial issue. I need perspective as to whether I sound like a concerned mom or a manic raving lunatic. Is this an appropriate site or can you suggest a place on the net?
This question is about a friend who suffers from alcohol abuse:
His father died some years ago from liver cirrhosis (caused by heavy drinking). My friend considered his father's drinking and demise to be a form of suicide.
Everytime I ask him about his childhood and how it was, whether there were any negatives, he tells me that there were none, that he felt loved and cared for. While at the same time telling me ...
My psychiatric problems are pretty severe - autism, bipolar disorder, panic disorder, agoraphobia, a very serious paraphilia, and I've developed physical problems as a result of the treatment of my mental illnesses. I used to be pretty thin and scrawny, but since I've been medicated for bipolar, I've become morbidly obese, and I can't even stand up for extended periods of time. I've tried, but I'm completely incapable of any kind of work or university ...
I have had this diagnosis since I was 23 (now 26) but do not believe I have it. I oppose the diagnosis becauseI have no fear of abandonment, I have never cut myself or attempted suicide, I do not have dramatic "shifts" in my identity or "splitting", I am not impulsive, I do not cut myself.
You may ask "then how did you get this diagnosis"? well I got it after multiple short stays in ...
