Drug side effects and hoplessness

I take an antipsychotic and I’m pretty sure I have drug induced akinesia (movement disorder). I can’t get comfortable and pace constantly to take the edge off. I got one of those apps that measures how far you walk a day and I was walking 24 miles daily. I’ve reduced that to 16 because even that is still ridiculous. Am i rift that this is drug induced akinesia? I’ve basically been depressed for my whole ...

Lost my spark for life.

I have had a lot of crap happen in my life, from the age of 19 I was diagnosed with GAD (Anxiety Disorder) and was put on some medication for it. That said I always managed to cope with it and managed to still retain that optimism for life intself, I always had that idea in my head that good things will come in the end.

At age 21 I stupidly got into smoking weed. ...

anyone suffer from this?

Recently i’ve been suffering from intense mood swings and perceptive issues. I’ve found that I am EXTREMELY sensitive towards my environment and I have no control over the switches between mindsets.

I’ve been recently in a place where they treat people with mental health problems, like a meet-up/therapy type thing, and i’m pretty sure it’s making me worse. Every time i’m there I feel like I don’t know who I am anymore. I switch to ...

Do I need a friend?

I have a partner and we enjoy all of our time together and I know when something is an issue that’s who you go to talk to and most of the time that’s fine my concerns easily go dismissed though but that’s ok I imagine that works between other couples as well. But their’s some sort of lack of presence in my life that I used to turn to a few friends for. I had ...

What's wrong with me!!

I'm having trouble doing what I'm supposed to do (have to), and that covers almost everything, eating, sleeping studying, going to university, going out.
Everything I know I should (must, supposed to) do, when the time comes to do it, I just find absolutely zero desire to do it and I go distract myself with whatever to pass the time. It has been like this for more than a year now.
Any idea what's wrong ...

Involuntary facial movements vitamin E?

I’m having involuntary facial movements and expressions. I’ve had this in the past and was able to overcome it. I originally was put on benztropine the first time until I got over it but now I have it again and was put back on benztropine but it was causing memory lapses so I no longer take that. I think my doctor fears putting me on another due to the amount of different meds I currently ...

feeling like a child

I'm 27 and often feel like a child. I hate adult things. I try to fake being more of an adult but I really don't like it. The adult world feels soul-crushing to me and absolutely FULL of ego. I only ever want to treat adult things as a necessity to survive and never define myself by them. I want life to be fun, and exciting, and interesting, not all work work work and posing ...

So Confused But Here I Am!

Hi everyone, I am new to the forum. I have never been diagnosed for several reasons:
1. Because Mental Health issues is taboo where I’m from, i.e. if you have mental health issues, people think you’re “crazy” and that you need to be locked up.
2. I have severe anxiety, I cannot make myself schedule an appointment, let alone actually attend one.

Why am I here? I want to gain clarity on ASPD. I feel ...

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 ...
