Why its okay to be an Introvert

Its Okay to be an Introvert

Society encourages us to be social. It is built into and engrained into our whole way of function. Socializing does in fact have many psychological and physical -health benefits. Social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter have made billions of dollars, capitalizing on our "friendships". However, with all of this pressure and encouragement to socialize with everyone, the billion dollar question might be, "What if we just don't ...

feeling like I've run out of options ...

I have no idea what to do, I'm sorry this might be long or jumbled. I'll try my best to be coherent.

I suffer from anxiety and depression, I'm unmedicated for reason's I'll explain in a moment.

To try and cut things short a bit, basically last year I had cancer, because of this I lost my job. Cue money troubles. I did have some savings but I've very nearly reached the end of them ...

SSRI ...weight gain....will it come off?

Hi everyone

I've been on SSRIs for almost three years and I've steadily gained weight in that time. Over three stone in all! In fact, this is this is the most I've ever weighed.

Originally I was on sertraline but at the beginning of the year had to switch to Prozac. That's when I put on the majority of my weight (I would say at least half of it in the last six months).

I've ...

Short-term antipsychotic course for a healthy person

Hi all,

To what extent and how quickly does a mentally healthy person recover after a short-term course of an antipsychotic?

I am curious about this because I was prescribed Zyprexa (olanzapine) despite not having any mental disorder and still suffer from its effects.

Zyprexa was prescribed to me off-label just for an acute insomnia that began just two weeks before the prescription was made.

The dosage was 5 mg/night, and I stopped the course ...

My blog from a psychiatric unit

Hello guys,

I've only just registered so please don't take this as spam. I am currently in a psychiatric ward after trying to kill myself three times within a month during a pretty rubbish breakup with my wife. As part of trying to deal with everything I have started blogging about my experiences, what I have been reading about and what I am learning about myself on a daily basis.

It started as a journal ...

Advice about my little brother please?

Hi guys. My name is Royce and I am new here. I don't know if this is the best place to ask this question but it appeared to be the most fitting. So I hope you guys don't mind.

I have a younger brother who is 23 years old (I am 32) and he is very sensitive. He is very shy and like I said, sensitive. Doctors agree that he isn't on the spectrum of ...

In pain, meds don't work, attacked my wife, suicidal.

Hello. This is my first time here. I find it very confusing with all the different sections. I'm in Ireland not the US as I guess most here are. Anyway, I posted a question on another site and someone said I should ask here. Two weeks ago a psychiatrist told me I had a personality disorder but doesn't know what? A couple of years ago a psychologist I saw told me I needed years of ...

Feeling/worry that I don't exist, or that nothing else does

Hi. I know it's not Depersonalization disorder, because I don't get the feeling that I'm an observer. At least I don't think I ever have. I get the feeling or worry that I don't exist. It's a little scary usually, but sometimes it's actually calming or calming and scary, because, well, no one knows what non-existence would mean exactly, but if I don't exist, I don't think I can mess up. No worries, the logical ...
