Effort and motivation

Although my more acute symptoms are well managed I still have the problems of decreased motivation and it takes an increased effort to perform even simple everyday tasks. My research suggests these are quite common problems. How do you cope with them?

Newly aware illness and relationship issues.

This is going to be quite the lengthy amount of issues.

I guess i will start off stating I finally found out I am schizophrenic sociopath. I also had episodes where I blocked out events that I've recently come to vaguely remember.

They were very serious and I will get to them, but first I will also add that all the episodes and memories are from a year ago. I had recently figured out that ...

I Think I'm Overdependent

Being the youngest sister, and an INFJ with an eating disorder(EDNOS), I think it all sums to me being too overdependent on my oldest sister and also on food. My sister has depression and anxiety worst than mine.. And when she's depressed/anxious in any way, I strongly feel like I should feel the same.. And because of the eating disorder, I constantly compare her eating habits to my own. I am very aware that these ...

I don't know where my delusions come from.

When I was 8, I would get visions of people, usually my classmates watching me through my house's windows. I knew it was just my imagination, and I was playing 'pretend' I guess, but then my classmates would say things that made me believe they really are watching me.

Then, when I was 11, I developed this fear that people were reading my mind because I was terrified of people knowing that I was gay. ...

So I learned not to tell others about my true self.

Good morning, Everyone! This may be a bit long, but maybe others can relate.

I'm 35 and I am someone that has always had issues with relating to others because all through my life, I was never really able to "feel" certain emotions. Some of these include happiness, excitement, being able to truly laugh, love, being able to form a real connection to anyone or anything along those lines. The feelings that I have always ...

Unsure of Where to Put This

Ever since I was 10, there has been this voice/other person residing inside of me. When we met, he told me his name was Alex and that he's always been inside of me but waited for the right time for us to meet. In my mind, he appears as male, around 6ft 1 with blonde, short hair and blue eyes. He has a seperate personality from mind, even a seperate voice for when he speaks ...

Didn't know where to put this...

So I went to the GP because I was certain that I had depression. He told me it was mild depression. But I'm sure it's more than mild depression, because I've felt this way for almost 5 years now, and things a progressively getting worse. Especially the suicidal thoughts and irritability. Then there's the fact that sometimes have thoughts of hurting myself and other people. Plus constant self-harm thoughts and temptations I just can't get ...

*** How are you feeling today? ***

New thread for those of you who hang out here and want to express how you feel today without making a new thread.

Me? I'm doing ok. Taking care of a Mom with dementia takes its toll, and occasionally I am depressed and/or anxious, but today I am ok.

Having An Emotional Day *Maybe Tiggering*

Hello Everyone
I got my things out of storage a couple days ago after having them in storage for a year so I started to unpack some of it today. I had to stop with how I was getting too emotional over it with how some things had belonged to my mum or my gamma or my favorite uncle. And they all passed away so unpacking everything was making me emotional. Somethings are staying packed ...
