What is your occupation??

I was just wondering what ya'll do for a living? I know there are a lot of people who go about their lives living with depression and anxiety and accomplish a lot! You people deserve an incredible amount of respect!! You show a lot of courage. People tend to think those that are mentally ill can't hold down a job or do anythign else worthy of praise. That is simply not true. I am living ...

Just an observation....

You know, after reading most of these posts I've really come to realize how incredibly intelligent most people with depression and anxiety and other illnesses are. I considerable myself to be a fairly intelligent person and I've really noticed the writing skills, vocabulary, and eloquence with which most of you write. I am very impressed. But aside from that it raises an interesting question. Are people who are more intelligent and thoughtful more likely to ...

Husband has a disorder?

I have attributed many of my husband's negative behaviors to alcoholism, but lately am starting to believe that there could be something more deeply ingrained into his mental or psychological realm.

Ever since I have known him, he has made a noise - similar to someone saying "mmm, mmm, mmm" either when he is made nervous by something or when he is trying to sit and relax. I don't think he is aware of it ...

hi new here :)

Well I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder this year. I am not sure what type I am we never discussed that. I guess as a child it was always there but not as bad as it got as a teenager and I don’t think I ever realized what it was. My symptoms do not really sound like some of the other posts here but I guess everyone is different. When I was 14 or 16 ...

i don't know

I bet no one will read this tonight. No one will care when they do because they have no ######6 reason to. What am I to anyone? I can't stand this, I feel horrible and I don't know why. I go up and down like a rollercoaster, but lately life is just awful. Almost constantly it's awful and I don't know why. I'm so angry. I'm angry at the world. I don't know why, but ...
