Hey there, people who are familiar with bupropion.
I've been on wellbutrin since last winter because of depression and lack of energy, though I have other problems too. It has lifted me up quite a bit. I now have a pretty normal amount of energy and I feel empty less often. It also causes less uncomfortable side effects than other meds I've been on. So I'd say I'm pleased with it.
It also made me ...

Dysfunctional Parents??

Posting here because I don't know where else to post this.

I'm in my 50's. I have a sister a few years older. We both have been married 4 times each. My sister is about to get married for a 5th time. We both have periodically seen therapists....... my sister more than myself.

Our father was an emotionally abusive man. He was physically abusive to my sister. Since I was much smaller than my father ...

Extreme Disappointments?

I'm not quite sure what I'm looking for here, but I guess I'm looking for some perspective from anyone who might be able to offer some? ^^; Maybe if anyone has had any similar experiences.

Firstly, I've posted here before but I'm making a new thread for something specific and new. I'm also not certain what I have, although it has been suspected I could be borderline, possibly bipolar, possibly autistic... and I have never ...

Is it rare for someone to act out in violence in society?

When not fueled by any intoxicants (drugs/alcohol)? My psychiatrist told me this, he said that violence and murder against random people are extraordinarily rare (at least in my country). Only 25 people in Ireland die from homicides. That surprises me.

I wonder why? I know the law exists and murder can land you in prison but surely I don't think people in the heat of the moment are thinking about the law? Same thing with ...

Scared for my son. Dont know how to help.


My son is 12 years old and has been diagnosed with OCD. He's always been a perfectionist and anxious about doing everything "right", but it started spiraling out of control last summer. He got really into religion. I figured it was just a phase and when he came to terms with his beliefs he would relax. The next thing I knew, he was constantly saying prayers under his breath and doing little rituals that ...

Alternate reality creation stemming from anxiety??

I was diagnosed with anxiety over 2 years ago, for around the past 3 or 4 years I have been creating an alternate reality that only exists in my bedroom. I lost my dad almost 5 years ago to illness which is what my anxiety is related to and stems from. This alternate reality is filled with people I look up to, mainly youtubers I admire and wish I was friends with. They have changed ...

A little shaken

I’ve been being stalked and it’s getting old. I had a guy shoulder bump me, hover over me and quietly say “punk, you ain’t going anywhere while at work. Damn right I’m not and thanks for your money. I had another incident while taking a lunch where three guys took all the seats around me. I said nothing and when I was finished I stood up and they all stood up in unison, I had ...

ADD Diagnosis

I met with a new therapist at the end of last week and I apparently have pretty serious ADD. That on top of already having issues with dissociation/depersonalization, depression, OSDD, and anxiety makes things make a lot more sense...
But I also will most likely need to change/get new medication. And learn how to manage/cope with what feels like a growing mess.
How on earth do I manage all of this together?

BPD, Dementia Threats. Need Thoughts.

I'll try to keep this short with the initial issue. Please ask questions to guide me to a fuller context. We are being terrorized by a Borderline w/dementia in my extended family. All mostly older here. She's the oldest. There are daily suicide and false allegation threats. My 80 year old ailing Uncle is being threatened, screamed at and ridiculed daily by her and it is wearing heavily on him as he he tries to ...
