Psychology and Mental Health Forum


Have many of you been able to cope with your mental illness without medication?

Also, is there anyone on this forum that was so disabled by mental illness that you could no longer take care of the basic neccessities of life?

Am I mental?


For probably over a year now, I've doubted my mental health. I don't know exactly what the symptons are, since I'm not sure what's normal and abnormal, but I'll give it a go.

1. My moods tend to fluctulate a lot. I can go from being happy to a rage like state within seconds, then back to normal emotions.

2. My self esteem seems to be higher than normal, or what's considered healthy self ...

I just began seeing a psychiatrist and I'm a bit confused on what he wants from me. In the sessions he wants to know whats on my mind...I tell him, really I'm not holding back when I talk. But, then I run out of things to say and we just kinda sit there, it feels really odd. Then because I feel uncomfortable I ask what he wants me to talk about, and all he'll ...

at wit's end

I am at my wit's end.

My condo bedroom was built over part of an old privy pit (raw sewage).

I am sure that if people were concerned, not just for me but for what this means for everyone, that something would be done.

Please look at my web page,

and pass this on.

Your fingernails reflect your health ...

Hi I'm new

I'm new here so hi.

I thought I should find someone to talk to about the feelings of absolute hate I feel for the entire human race.

I hate every man woman and child on the planet and wish the earth would just explode and kill everyone including me.

I trust nobody. I have no friends. I havn't left my house for more than an hour for over 14 years. As soon as I see ...

sorry i posted this on the bipolar board too, but i wanted to double check by posting here.

if someone who is bipolar takes anti-depressants only, does it just take their depression away or is it more complex than that? what might anti-depressants alone do for someone who is rapid cycle bipolar 2? any insight?

So confused...just diagnoised

Up until June 14th, not one of my friends or family would have said that I had a mental illness.

On Mar 7th I got the mother of all migraines. It would not leave. I ended up having to go on medical sick leave. I was so drained I could not take care of myself. I flew down to Houston and put myself under my sister's care. She is an amazing sister and really came ...

I just want to shake that guy's hand

Since time immemorial, there have been people who claim to hear voices in their head. In the past, these were most often attributed as messages from a spiritual realm, from demons or demigods, holy or otherwise. But now we are enlightened, and psychiatry has found that those voices are actually machinations of the subject's own head. It is now known that there is no spirit realm, and no spirits... the voices are not to be ...
