HIs strange and bohemian behaviour,his black and dark flat,black and dark like his clothes,black and dark like his mind....I fall in love with him, because besides of ...

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 ...

What could this be??

Ok, before I start off, I have to say that I'm really ashamed of this and I've never even told it to my therapist.

Ever since my depression/Panic Disorder started, my imagination has been totally over-active. I remember once, I was in my car and I looked up at a tree and I all of a sudden pictured my Grandpa hanging from a noose from the tree. It was so scary because I love my ...

What do you tell your family??

It seems that I haven't really been able to communicate what I'm going through with my parents. It's like I have to tell them I am gay or something. There seems to be this very awkward feeling surrounding my illness that derives either from simple unease with personal matters or from the stigma that mental illness so often provokes. My parents and I have never been very close at all and it is very strange ...

All of you people seem to have an interesting story or at least something to say about mental illness. I really ...
