getting nowhere

First of all, I'm not even sure I 'have' any disorder... but I've always been sort of 'apart' from the conventional/mainstream mentality. Never really fit in with any group. And seldom minded this - except when I was young and had terrible trouble getting to know the opposite sex, which I wanted so bad but whenever the chance came along I had no idea what to do.
Then about a month and a half ago, ...

mood swings

I feel more level today; my medication (Seroquel) seems to help me stay level part of the time, but not always. I've been depressed the last few days, severely on some days; other times I swing into a high...thoughts going fast...thinking in blocks of information.

I'm having problems with mood swings now, but not hallucinations and delusions, although I've had problems with psychosis before. I just don't know what to do about it. I feel ...

Loss of Appetite


I haven't been hungry for the last two weeks. I eat maybe 1 meal a day (usually something like a bowl of rice with SOME meat)and I seem to do well. It's weird. I've also been either sleeping too much or too little - it fluctuates. :shock: I've never been like this before and my appetite has been decreasing.

I have BPI and I'm on 450mg ...

Just get a job!

I feel pretty sure that if my cognition had not been impaired, that I would have figured out something was wrong when I was living in the hydrogen sulfide, way before I did; similarly I feel quite sure that I would not have gotten tetanus, and subsequently been unable to get proper treatment if I did not have this disability.

But it is not always visible to an observer.

About a year and a half ...

Made my Decision.

I've made my decision. I'm not going to try to get help or whatever you want to call it. I don't think i really need it, and I'm not going to even try to get it. My family is low on cash, and I'm not going to ask them to pay for that. And even if we were billionaires, I wouldn't ask them for help, because I don't want it and I don't need it. ...

Finally getting help

My parents found out tonight that I have been talking to people online, and they were furious. Basically, everything came out tonight in a really ugly fashion. I was in a discussion with my dad about mental illness, well, actually a heated debate.

He was saying all sorts of stuff, like how Christians can't be mentally ill, it's just a crutch, that OCD is not an illness, everybody has it, it's a sin to be ...

I DO have social anxiety...but confused about this...


I was diagnosed with social anxiety, and did not even really need to be diagnosed as I figured I had it. I tried medication but find that I'd rather deal with fighting it than the side effects of the medication.

However I have another issue that I always believed to be related to social anxiety and now I find is not. Even my past therapist and psychiatrist did not understand this:

I often feel ...

It is a pleasure to make your company here at psychforums.com

My name is Lizy and I am known on the net as Morgalis is the many circles I have travelled. I happened upon this site when I was searching for help with dealing with my son.

I have been diagnosed BP2 8 years ago and like most, have struggled with accepting my diagnosis and learning to live with it. Though I have used the ...
