Having difficult parent

My mother has multiple sclerosis , and I think that has the impact on her behavior. But I am sure that her behavior isn't the way it is, only because of her illness. I am prety tolerant, but the thing is that my tolerance doesn't lead anywhere.

She accused my father for all bad things that are happening to her, and it is quite funny how she can relate every single problem with my father. ...

Having a hard time!

I'm sorry for the long post in advance. I feel that if I don't get this the details across I won't be able to cope for much longer!

For as long as I can remember I've been different. It began with what should be a small insignificant hair colour resulting in years of what I have learnt to call 'banter'. The name calling, you hear them so much you begin to find them funny, associate ...

I'm having suicidal thoughts...

They're just thoughts, I don't have any plans or intentions to do something. I do hurt myself sometimes however.

It's been long since I had suicidal thoughts, but lately they have been returning. The main reason I wish my life would end is that I'm not very successful socially, and this is bringing me much suffering. I tend to think that there's something wrong with my personality, and to be honest I do feel I'm ...

New Job!

Welp, today is my last day as a Supported Housing Specialist! To those of you who don't know, I'm leaving to work in a group home. It's been a wonderful experience! To make a long story short, I'm leaving because things started to get to be more than I could handle, due to my low level of assertiveness, difficulty interpreting things, trouble concentrating, and struggling with managing a caseload. I'm diagnosed with Asperger's, ADHD, OCD ...

Frustrating situation

I was admitted to hospital in 2010 after experiencing paranoia during extreme insomnia brought on by stimulant meds.
The doctors decided I'd had a psychotic episode.

In 2013 I was threatened by my partner's uncle who was drunk at the time.
I didn't report it or tell anyone because I thought they'd think I was having a paranoid delusion.
Early this year when I finally explained to a family member what had happened and why ...

How to overcome Social Isolation?

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but here's my story...

I'm 17 and I've been isolated from people my whole life. I was taken out of school in second grade, because apparently I couldn't talk to anyone - and it's stayed the same ever since. I think the last time I've talked with someone was months ago (outside family). The only talking i get is with my family and I ...

What do I tell my kids?

I have two children, aged 10 and 5. Today their mother was admitted to hospital for pschyciatric help. She has been harming herself, never in front of the children. The children are in fact oblivious to her condition. My question is what do I tell them as to why she is not here and why she is in the hospital?

Cancer Survivor living with... a lot

So I'm a childhood cancer survivor living with a slew of mental disorders because of the cancer/(extreme and experimental) chemo/radiation/afteraffects... And I never know what to do.

I look at the family I have and my siblings and think- Of course it's easy for them- they didn't have to live through this. I look at the money they have and think of course it's easy- they don't spend all of their money to stay alive. ...

Fear of diagnosis.

Recently, I've been finding myself being fearful of being diagnosed with more mental illnesses. I've been noticing that my psychosis is getting worse because the visual snow is getting thicker and I keep having delusions that there are people living in my house's laundry room and that they are out to get me. I keep getting delusions that I'm dead and everything around me is just like a dream and that I have a "real" ...

disturbing side effect

I'm currently taking 225 mg Venlafaxine 100 mg Sertraline 40 mg Latuda and 25 mg Trazadone.

I notice that often my eyes have a "tired" feeling on movement, as if it takes more mental effort to move my eyeballs. If I move my eyes over a large angle (even without turning my head) I get a pulsing sensation inside my head that is accompanied by very brief rushing sound in my ears. There are usually ...
