Am I harming my children by telling them that I am planning on paying for their college? I am afraid they will have nothing to work toward, etc. I have 15, 9 and 6.

Living with BiPolar 2..until I discovered NAC

For the longest time, i've yearned to feel. I wanted to connect to others, but my mind wouldn't let me. I would drift into obsessive compulsive thinking.

For the longest time i've been socially immobilized by fear, however I have worked through this ...

Daily intense mood swings - help?

This is my first post so apologies if this is not in the appropriate place.
I have been suffering from daily mood swings for quite a while. It all came to ahead about 3-4 weeks ago where there was that 'last straw' and I had a sort of break down. I've always thought I've been particularly moody (usually angry, irritable, hostile, restless. Sometimes I can actually be pretty happy and productive and want to chat ...

Depression mania existential crisis and heavy withdrawals

Over a year now I’ve been reducing seroquil from 700mg to 250mg. This seemed to trigger a manic depressive spell that caused me to more or less lose my mind and reflect on my entire life and where I’ve gone wrong in the past. Facing everything I took lightly and my worst mistakes it’s changed me as a person. It turned itself into an existential crisis where the order of my life began to make ...
