Hi, not sure where to start but I'll try to keep this short, I feel it's time to ask for some other help on this forum, so I'll give it my best shot:

So for the past year or so, on and off I've been going through a very hellish time of feeling psychologically traumatized, which is hard to describe but for anyone who has felt the same they know what it feels like. In ...

Getting better

Take up hobbies, keep the good things for yourself, start eating better, get off the Internet, stop looking around for an answer. I find all of these things have been improving my mental health. I feel it can be a curse but you can allow its energy to transform you through the darkness into someone that needs to be. Naturally all energy receives a reaction thus is a curse. How that shows itself can be ...

Complex PTSD/trauma - help

I'm struggling with complex PTSD

I've had at therapy. Lots of it including EMDR and CBT.

I've tried meds. Many kinds over many years. Didn't work

I don't fully dissociate, but I'm rarely fully present. ...

Feeling ok But Not Ok

Hello everyone. I suffer from bipolar type 11 and have recently been tapering off my anti depressants which is a huge yay for me personally.

Sticking to a hygienic routine, exceeding regularly and watching what I eat for the most part ( it
Perfect). I’m writing though because ...

Loss of who I used to be

Does anyone else notice a major difference in who you were before that first episode etc. Or diagnosis? I used to be so outgoing, friendly, social and happy. When I went in the hospital the first time for a psychotic episode and took anti psychotics for years, it seems my personality is gone. I am always depressed, tired, lonely, I dont want to go anywhere or talk to anyone. I dont feel like myself anymore. ...

Distance. Help, please.

Hello . I am new here, and made this account for these questions. This may become rather lengthy, and I apologize in advance.

These past two, perhaps three years I have become aware of the concerning state of my mind. For starters, my mind is... cloudy. It's hard to think, everything feels so distant and hard to reach. I've been forgetting more lately. I stutter when I talk and use the wrong words, when I ...

Ex GF said I lack empthay. Could it be a mental issue?

I'm a 41 year old male and haven't cried since about 1993. Wikipedia says men cry on average about once a year. If that's true I concede I could be abnormal. I don't really feel depressed and I think i can relate to people when they feel pain or grieving but a lot of times I feel numb or indifferent. I seem to be able to cope with terrible situations better than other people. My ...

I have been wondering about myself for years, that Im different from most others. I will keep this as short as possible. Im male, 42.

I was a shy insecure child or so they say, but not too much so.

As a child I wasnt really interested in maintaining friendships with most other guys, instead I only had 1 good friend who I shared the same interests with. These interests were reading and discussing books, ...
