Please help! How to get help for my family? Uk

Hi I'm needing help for my mother and dad and younger brothers who live with her.
She's making their life's miserable. She is undiagnosed but definitely needs to be but refuses.. It's been suggested by us and others in the past and she has gone absolutely flipping mental at it before... And will again. She's an emotional blackmailer with pretty paranoid ideas and fears.. She's accused them of hurting her and bullying her... Another of ...

This can't be normal.


I have never been diagnosed with any type of mental illness, but I have been thinking about going to see my doctor because I'm pretty sure it's not healthy.

It's been effecting me more recently for reasons unknown, it's difficult to find somewhere to begin and it's difficult to explain.

I'd say that people in general have always irritated me at some point or another, but it seems like its bleeding over to everything ...

I'm too "inferior" to live.

I lived in a figurative "time-out" chair my whole life. I was never really allowed to do or have much of anything. And because of the environment my parents put me in, I lived with an inferiority complex for the entirety of my life. Even in my kindergarten days, I looked forward to death because I didn't need to deal with the senseless $#%^ that everyone dropped on me.

My parents - although good people ...

Trouble coping with cancelled plans


I'm going to start by saying that I'm not diagnosed with any mental illness, but since this seemed the most 'general' board, I chose this one for my post. (Moderators, feel free to move if there is a better location for this) Also, I am aware that what I am going to describe here doesn't have a huge impact on my life and is probably a small thing compared to the stuff most other ...

Total Bipolar Burnout

It keeps coming back, this isn't new.

I have to drop what I'm doing and drive somewhere secluded and scream. I scream at God for failing me and getting off on it. *mod edit* I have no friends, a messed up family run by a narcissistic mother, and a delusional married to a narcissist brother.

I really have nobody. But its ok, I'm also Schizoid.

I just left class as I could stop having suicidal ...

Please Help-terrified of losing SSI

I have been on SSI for 2 years for multiple mental conditions. The only job I've ever had in my life lasted 1 week. Holding down employment in the general public is next to impossible for me because of my severe social anxiety. There is nothing that would trigger me to lose my benefits except for the fact that I'm about to become a single mother. My fear is that they will think I have ...

Smiling Through or Feeling It?

I wanted to see how other people handle this because my entire life, I've pushed through my depression. Never missed a day of work. Never turned down a night out. I've not reached out because of it, but when invited I'd go. Until today. I'm just too tired and I canceled plans to go home and mope.

As I've gotten older (33 now), keeping up that front has become more and more exhausting. And I've ...
