Stuff That Makes You Feel Like Crap


  1. Bipolar Spectrum Disorder - The Pole Dance

    If life is a ride, BP's a fucking theme park. Whether you're riding the roller coaster, spinning 'round the demonic carousel, buying souvenir toenail clippers for your ex and their entire extended family, or weeping on the sidelines as some kid pukes on your head, we're here for you.

  2. Depression - Let a WHAT Be My Fucking Umbrella? (Sod You, Perry Como)

    Today's forecast: bright and sunny except for one dark, festering, soggy black cloud permanently stalled out over you. You've been in this funk so long you don't even feel like you deserve to live - in fact, you don't feel anything. You're convinced that you qualify for dual citizenship between Mordor and the Abyss. If the Grim Reaper came, you'd tip him. Any of this sound familiar? Step into the Abyssal Inn and put your feet up. You're not alone.

  3. Self-injury - The Cutting Board

    Anything to feel the pain, because you can't feel anything else.

    WARNING: This board may contain material some might find upsetting or triggering.  Please read the guidelines pinned at the top before posting.  The board is for the express purposes of providing a safe space for anyone who is struggling with quitting self harm, and supporting one another in finding healthier ways of coping.

  4. Personality Disorders - Fuck Off! No, Wait. Fuck Me Now!

    For when cutting, binging, stranger sex and staring at the mirror for hours on end wondering "Who Am I?" just don't cut it anymore. Although this board can be somewhat borderline-centric, all flavors of dysfunction are welcome.

  5. Eating Disorders - Hell's Kitchen

    For all flavors of eating disorders - anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, dysmorphic body disorders, sleep binging, and similar entries. Take note, though, this board is focused on recovery. While we encourage posters to be honest and not "walk on eggshells", any posts which encourage disordered behavior will be deleted, and the poster may find themselves warned or banned.

  6. Substance Abuse / Addictive Behavior - 8-balls, Highballs, Deal Me in One Last Time

    Discuss addiction problems here. Booze? Weed? Gets you high, or brings you down? Talk to it with those who've been there. No 12 Stepping needed. Talk about how to quit, not continue. But if the feds come knocking on my door I'm going to give them what they are looking for because I can't afford a lawyer. If you want to talk about manufacturing or your plans to blow up the Corn Palace, do so at your own risk.

  7. Panic / Anxiety Disorders - What, Me Worry?

    For Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, agoraphobia with and without PD, and all the lovely specific phobias. This board is a room with an infinite number of corners so everyone gets their own to hide in. We have a couple of couches you can hide under too. And closets. Closets are good hidey places. We have several of those. All windows are covered so nobody can see in. Door frames are padded so they don't slam.

  8. PTSD and Trauma- Duck and Cover. Again and Again.

    Post Traumatic Stress - Loud noises always make you jump? If a person walks up from behind does it make you want to leap out of your skin? Having nightmares and flashbacks that you fear will never go away? Dealing with traumas and their after effects is frightening. Talking about your experiences is the first step in healing.

  9. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder - Click Here Repeatedly

    There are six subtypes of OCD. Count them. Six. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Thank God it's an even number.

    2. Washers and Cleaners worry that germs and contamination will cause bad things to happen.
    3. Orderers worry that having things out of order will cause bad things to happen.
    4. Pure Obsessionals just can't stop thinking about bad things happening.
    5. Hoarders worry that bad things might happen if they throw something away.
    6. Scrupulous OCDers worry that they are a bad thing happening or about to happen.

    Six. Yep, that's six. I better count again just to make sure.

  10. Social Phobia - Behind Paranoid Eyes

    Button your lip, don't let the shield slip
    take a fresh grip on your bullet proof mask
    and if they try to break down your disguise with their questions
    you can hide hide hide
    behind paranoid eyes
    --Roger Waters

  13. ADD/ADHD - Could You Say That Again? I Was Listening to My Head.

    Thread titles seldom relate to their contents. Nothing is on or off topic. Topics are mythical constructions. So is time. And gnomes. I had a garden gnome once. I named it George. I'd walk out into my yard every morning and say "Hi George!". One morning George wasn't there, though. A few weeks later I got a letter in the mail that had a picture in it. It was George at the Grand Canyon. Oh, hey, when driving from Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon, have you ever stopped at the truck stop that has the playground with the giant Flintstones figures? It kicks ass! I bought a figurine there that had Jesus in the Arizona desert in front of a bunch of cacti. It had little rabbits in it too. Oh shit, the stove is on fire! Later.

  14. Autistic Spectrum Disorders - What Part of English Don't You Understand?

    "... but I told you I loved you a year ago. If that had changed I'd have let you know."
    "Is that angry? Are you angry? Why are you angry?"
    door slams
    "Fuck. Why does this keep happening?"
