Faking my way through life

I genuinely think that I'm crazy. I've faked my way through most of my life and I feel like I have trapped myself with the fake expectations I have set for myself. I am just waiting for the ...


Get it out of my mind.

I am not feeling too great at the moment, I just needed somewhere to get it off my chest and out of my head. I feel as though I am at sea, completely lost and slowly but surely drowning. Not knowing w...


Need to get life back

Hey everyone, i'm 26 and currently work in a call centre job. I only do 4 hours a day but even that is too much for me to take some days. I hate it. I hate it so much. I want to start studying again but was never any good at maths or science or stuff like that. So I made a decision to do International Relations as it is a bit of lots of things I enjoy, history, and languages. So I made that d...


How Do I Even Function?

Often when I get stressed I stop being able to deal with things. I can't cope so I switch off completely. Withdraw into myself and just won't deal with anything. Can't deal with phone calls, emails, how much of a mess my apartment is or even other people. I'm not a stupid person, I'm fairly educated but I just sit down, shut up and wait to stop being overwhelmed. But I nev...


Slipping back.

I've been doing loads better recently than I was. Had a few bad nights in college that really stressed me out but not so much that I couldn't cope with it. Everything seems impossible to me now. I want to get a place of my own, own it not renting. I'm moving to a new city where I don't have a job yet and student loans want $600 a month from me which is more than the rent on mos...


Talk to GF about my depression??

Hey Everyone – I've been able to keep my depression to an ok level last couple of months. This last week it has just got worse and worse. I really hope it gets better soon as my GF is worried about me. I don't know if I should talk to her about how I really feel as I don't want her to feel bad or even more worried than she already is about me. My brain is going mad and telling me that I am worthless, not good enough for her or good at anything and that she will leave me anyway because I am so miserable. I'm convincing myself she is going to cheat and leave me for someone else. How would I bring it up with her? I don't even know where I would start..... I think I should tell her but have no idea........


Anti-Depressants

As someone in active recovery, and having been prescribed anti-depressants for the better part of a decade, the first, and most important piece of advice I can give is; Don't Panic.  Many people are prescribed this form of medication for any number of illnesses, so you're not alone, and you're not the first person to be prescribed them. Secondly, don't dismiss them outrig...


Confrontation

So i will admit i get angry about things i probably don;t intend to get so mad from. However i am learning more why and figuring it out it's now just more of confronting it... which i also hate c...


Yes

So  Again  another fight over something like a shirt that I didn't get it because I don't listen I don't care.  I'm useless I can't do anything right.  It&...

Conquering the Stigma, for my sons.

Hi. My story is a bit different. I had pre-natal psychosis having been taken off meds to safeguard. But when my CPN tried to get me some support/to reinstate meds, nothing was available. I deteriorated and was deemed to have a lack of capacity. However, I was sent off, away from my son who was 10, and my family and support network, to an agency unit that was not a specialist psychiatric mum n baby unit. I was unwell and unable to eat well. So baby David became malnourished. He also had a blood disorder as do I.  The Trust should have treated him immediately after birth. They did not. After 5 weeks he was transfused. The social services took away my two boys. So, me, having passed a 4yr supervision order for doubting the meds were helping me, and winning, the year before, I lost my boy...


No idea whats wrong with me

Haven't eaten properly in days, haven't left my house. My grades at Uni are slipping, to the point where I don't think there is anything I can do to make them any better. I sit alone most of the time and can't get out of my head. Thoughts just overwhelm me and make me even more miserable. My boyfriend tries to help me but he doesn't really get it. He just says stuff like i...


No motivation to do anything

I've always been what you'd call an ambitious and motivated person. I've got qualifications and a good job but lately I feel literally zero motivation to do anything. I force myself to do what I need to but I am plagued with thoughts of “whats the point” and “why should I bother” I used to be so motivated and have plans/goals I wanted to achieve. I used to d...


Stopped going to work

My parents are on holiday, I live with them currently which doesn't help how I feel. Since they've been away I've just called in sick, stayed in and sunk into a pit of depression. I got diagnosed with depression a while ago and thought that I was making progress. No. I've just allowed myself to sink into this pit and now I'm probably going to lose my job because im such a ...
