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 ...

Life after 3rd episode! terribly worried, Please help!

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). She went to hospital where she stayed there for 3-4 weeks each time. Each psychotic episode starts by loss of concentration, weak memory and loss of interest in life, then it develops to positive symptoms like disorganized speech and behaviors, ...

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, ...

Some guidance please


Basically I would really appreciate any advice or guidance on what's wrong with me. Sorry if this in the wrong part of the forum, couldn't really see where best to put it.

I'm asking because things have got worse & I'm also getting different symtoms now which, for some reason I'm not sure about, have made me think differently about things - the symptoms are more physical rather than mental which makes me hope ...

Hello people, I'm in a very unpleasant state of mind and it's been going on for a few years now and I'm slowely starting to lose my personality because of it. I've been trying to fix myself for a long time, but no matter what I do I just can't kill the darkness in my soul.

I made it happen, I can make things happen.

Today i learned that an advisor I see regulary in appointments has had a car crash and is recovering in hospital.

he is not just any man, he is a nice person. The people you see at appointmwnts are not soulless robots with no names you know? they have feelings and history and names.

His name is gary.

But here comes the thing that might be hard for you to swallow, but i am admitting ...

Thinking of deleting soical media

Im thinking of deleting my social media because as always people assume the worst then wreck the experience. I made some media accounts including a FB without my picture (just a tree or random objects) and with a fake name so I could chat with 2 of my close friends. I didn't put any personal info either like phone or email. I made the mistake of adding others. I made the mistake of accepting other's ...

What to do when you don't like the person you are?

I don't like the person I am, I hate him. I never liked him. He's pathetic, with basically no self confidence, never had a sprinkle of confidence in himself, doesn't value himself and deeply doesn't believe in himself, he believes he's a loser and an abomination to humanity, and he won't achieve anything in life and eventually will kill himself, because he knows this is only a matter of time.

I feel like I'm stuck ...

Anti depressants in Japan

Please help!

I moved to Japan three months ago to work as an English teacher.

I have been on Pristiq 100mg for severe anxiety for about 2.5 years. I filled a 6 month prescription when I was back home in Australia and brought it with me, thinking I would be able to get more here. But now I realise that Pristiq, along with equivalents, is not available in Japan. I have 2.5 months worth left ...

unsure if professional helpful

Hi, I was referred for a psychiatric assessment which was done by a MH social worker. Whilst he was doing the assessment, I felt that he was not really listening to what I was saying because several times he repeated back to me what he had thought I was saying and it was not at all what I had actually said. This wasn't just once, this happened practically throughout the whole assessment which went on ...
