Living on own for first time in 50s?

Hypothetically speaking, where can a man in his 50s learn to live on his own for the first time in his life? That's right, the first time in his life! He has some learning disability, or mental problems that he has been in denial about that he never overcame. As a result he had problems holding jobs. Now his life is falling apart and he really should get out on his own. Are there any ...

Solipsism! Please help!

Help me I was camping with my family, and we were cliff jumping. I fell from a weird ledge and almost died. (Near death experience) I was traumatized and It was sad. The next day I was walking on a trail and a weird idea came in my head:

"What if I died, but god is simulating life for me till he can tell me I died at the right moment?"

That REALLY scared me. ...

Please, reasons to like people?

Tonight I am having a hard time liking people. A little bit of my past so you can understand me. May be 2 or 3 years ago I'm nor sure but I hated people so much I felt like killing any one that treated me incorrectly, I don't mean the light hearted I want to kill I mean I wanted to chop some one up and stab them to death. I've tried my best to ...

Temporary psychosis

It all started in November 2013 when I notice some
missing and broken off eyelashes, I immediately started to obsess about
then one day I started itching. My clothing felt funny and
uncomfortable. I hated the way my jeans felt rubbing against
my legs, and the back of my shirt against my back.
I was convinced that I was the victim of a parasite
Infestation, and that they were hiding around the house.
I was ...

I have officially met the biggest ableist asshat on campus.

Let me preface by saying this: I don’t care if you disagree about Batman being ableist or not. Some people have brought up some good points defending the comics. This boy did not. This boy’s problem was supporting ableist caricatures and not taking a PWD’s account of stigma seriously. Like Batsy all you want. I don’t care. I really don’t. That is all.

I was talking to a girl in the 4M about comics, and ...

5 steps forward 4 1/2 back. Dragging myself through life...

Hi everyone, sorry for what will probably me a rather long post. I've found that periodically venting everything can be a cathartic exercise. I've posted here before a long time back and received some very nice replies, not sure anyone will remember me.

At any rate where do I start? I'm a 32 year old guy with a life long history of depression, anxiety, and avoidant behaviour. My parents have enabled me like you would ...

Does health insurance usually cover therapy or depression...

I finally might have health insurance --- Blue Cross Blue Shield.

It says mental health treatment is covered with a small co-pay.

What exactly do health insurance plans usually cover for "mental health treatment?"

Talk therapy? Meds from a primary care doctor only?

Do you usually have to have a referral from a primary care doctor to see a psychologist/whatever to see a psychologist/whatever?

I haven't been to a doctor in years, and have no ...

Getting a clue?

Hey all,

I've lost a pretty big portion of my life (time wise) to mental illness and as a result, it's stunted my growth and I've missed out on a lot of lessons and experiences. I feel very stupid and ashamed. You are just oblivious to anything else, depending on the severity of your mental illness. A part of you is always absent and you don't notice things going on around you so you don't ...

Quarter life crisis

Hi everyone, I think I'm having a quarterlife crisis and I can't work this last bit out. Any thoughts much appreciated. I'm tossing up between:

- Study in the city of my dreams (one year program) then travel afterwards in the European winter (I'm Aussie, so this is a big deal). This study is purely for interest, not to retrain, so it's not like I'm trying to escape a career I'm not interested in. And ...
