The long road to recovery

I feel like recovering is taking forever. It's like I am fighting two different personalities. One personality wants me to reduce my medication dose; the other wants me to keep it the same or possibly raise it. This sounds like Bipolar, but I think I have schizoaffective or schizophrenia. I was once told by a Bipolar patient in the psychiatric unit that Bipolar involves one's mind being split into two "sides", and that the two ...

Does anyone else find interaction so hard?

Hello,
does anyone relate? Knows ways to cope?

(it's the first time I post here I hope this is ok)

I think years ago I was just shy but now I really don't care about what other people's judgment could be, yet I speak even less.

Simply getting a word out is tiring and seems unnecessary. Explaining stuff is exhausting and difficult.
Words can feel so heavy that I have to speak slowly.
Other times ...

how to mentally relabel/recondition a situation/circumstance

(This is my first post, please feel free to edit/move)

Dear all,
I am interested in figuring out how I can mentally relabel/rebrand a situation.

Concretely, I am living in a city for several years now and the first five years have been really tough due to education/job situation (I have been borderline depressed and developed a anxiety disorder). While that is now past, which I am grateful for, I unfortunately still somewhat associate the ...

« Thoughts » I guess

Hi so I’m gonna go straight to it because It’s getting really really bad
So uh a few months ago I started having these horrible, disturbing thoughts (usually they’re related to my toe nails don’t ask me why haha) at first it was just things I hated but it escalated really quickly and right now I can’t even focus, think straight for a minute or sit still because of these, which is bad because I’m ...

How Can I Stop Being A Perfectionist

I'll admit that I'm a bit of a perfectionist. I feel that I have to succeed the first time I try at something. I'm not very good at dealing with criticism. Nor am I adept at handling failure. This applies to all aspects of my life. Whether I'm cooking a meal for myself, baking a treat for myself, writing something, or even in gaming. In fact, I feel that everything in my day has to ...

Feel like a black guy when going in stores just looking/shop

Mainly when I am by myself but sometimes with family too.

Anyone else feel like this? I am not being racist promise. I am not racist at all. Just didn't know how else to describe it. Sorry.

Long Absence Long Silence

It's been awhile, since I've been on here. Hello, again. I have Facebook, but I like this format, sometimes. Not that anyone cares, but it's definitely been a journey! There's so much and so little to talk about, it's baffling. I guess I can describe how I'm doing currently: better, after getting on medication (again), for the first time—around—since I was posting on here. Isn't that funky? Well, after getting off of benzodiazepines, I was ...

Why is my normal behaviour treated as mental illness? TW

Trigger Warning: anger at situation.

Also not looking for sympathy, just comments if anyone wants to.

Normal behaviour - If I am able to be straightforward, speak my mind and stand up for my rights I end up being prevented and treated as if it is mental illness. There is no avenue for expression or playing through any personal issue through accurate social interaction. Also Bluntness and disagreement is necessary sometimes.

Instead I am expected ...

Remotely-accessed electronic devices and hypnotic suggestion

Has anyone here ever heard of people having various electronic devices in their possession (e.g. cell phones, televisions with internet access, etc.) getting remotely accessed by total strangers without the informed consent of the owners? It's come to my attention that certain sadistic people have the capability to transmit hypnotic suggestion in order to induce the symptoms of various mental illnesses eventually resulting in full-blown psychosis. It's also come to my attention that this can ...
