not sure what to do

Had an appointment with my psychiatrist today. He's now decided that I have a cyclothymic personality and possible have borderline personality disorder. He sent me away to read up on things and I've just been doing that. The stuff about BPD is nasty...makes me feel like a terrible person. a lot of it applies to me and some of the stuff I didn't my fiance agreed with. I thought knowing what was wrong with me ...

Gonna bore you

I am new, of course. And I see there are lots of people with problems.

I suffer from depression, anxiety, fatigue, anger, irritability, rage, hopelessness, and headaches most of the time.

These headaches are so bad, I have to stay in bed for 12 hours.

My medical doctor cannot find a cause. Muscle relaxants help some, but I suffer from tense neck muscles.

I go to a counseling center, been put in the "happy home" ...

fed up

I'm going through diagnosis at the moment. Initially psychiatrist thought I was bipolar but now he says I'm cyclothalamic. I'm on quetiapine and fluoxetine and although I'm feeling happier, I feel very erratic. I sometimes have what i think are aural hallucinations where I hear people saying things about me but I don't know if people are or if I'm imagining it. I haven't really told the pyschiatrist about this. I have a terrible temper ...

Running Away

why has nobody written back to you? I see people have viewed your post, but no one responded.... I don't have time really to go into depth about your post but I will say one thing: You may feel the need to run away and feel more independent but you have to separate that urge from the urge to hurt somebody else. Those are two completely different things. Hurting somebody else or yourself is not ...

To what extent can we recover???

I hear so much about people who learn how to live with a mental illness but are there those out there who have completely recovered and lived normal lives again? I ask this because I think that I have to make myself believe it before it can become a possibility. Right now, I believe that I'll only be able to make some improvements here or there but, overall, I will always be this way and ...

all i can be is everyone's perception of me.
i'm a million different people at once while never changing, because there're a million different people looking at me; all of which who have different points of view.
imagine i'm here talking to two different people. one person is thinking, "i'm intrigued." the other is thinking, "i'm scared." i become two different people.same equation, just turn the two into a million. i'm a million different people. ...

Helping a family member get help. Where do we start?

We have a family member who for a few years now is breaking all ties with family. She becomes too angry for anyone to talk to. She thinks that people are watching her and that everyone is against her. She will not go visit a doctor and has no income. We don't know where or to whom we should talk to first. She wants to talk to a lawyer of all people to tell her ...
