  1. So I joined this forum to talk about my various mental health issues and try to find a solution or two with people who can relate. I been diagnosed with autism, clinical depression, and oppositional defiant disorder at various points in my life and I'm currently 16 years old at the time of this writing. I hope to have a great time with you guys.
  2. Holy cow this site is AMAZING! I’m in love! I’m a psych nurse who loves her (my?) job, currently on disability leave of abcense from work in order to ‘deal with’ my multiple substance addictions & corresponding compulsive behaviors that are vying with my ADD as reasons that my executive functioning is lacking... I was still outstanding at my job (once I showed up and while I wasn’t locked in the bathroom for 45 mins) right up until I had a full blown panic attack outside the inpatient psychiatric hospital where I work causing the admission team to call the paramedics who insisted on taking
  3. Hi, very good question one which I ask myself frequently I have had depression since my teenage years due to a crappy childhood, but in the last few years it has got progressively worse. I have severe depression and severe anxiety. I have tried many different medications none of which have lifted the dark cloud that suffocates me every day. I have also tried numerous therapies and am currently in CBT treatment. Meds wise I am taking Fluoxetine 40mg for depression and Propanolol for the anxiety daily. It helps to some extent but I still have days where there's thoughts t
  4. Hello friend. I'm Grey Matter, I guess I'll start with I've been lurking this forum board for almost a year now. I have trouble interacting with people online sometimes. I have skitzoaffective disorder bipolar type so when that fleeting moment comes that I get manic, I tend to make an arse of myself. I also have anxiety so that's fun. But this seemed like a decent forum people here seem pretty OK so after isolating myself and living under a rock I decided to give it another try. Hope it goes OK, so here's to rolling with the punches. Heh.
  5. Have you ever woken up somewhere and have no idea where you are or how you got there? Like the guy in the first Saw movie. Well that's me. Except I'm not chained up in a dank room with a stranger and a in the room. So yeah. No idea what this place is. Or who you people are. Or how I got here. But I'm here now so I guess I should just try and make the most of it. While at the same time never quite being sure of who I can trust, who is out to kill me/eat me/wear my skin or some other thing that strangers do to each other. Should I be scared? Probably... Let's just see what happens.
  6. I am crowduck. I am mildly autistic with GAD, a strong sense of right and wrong, and a very hot temper in regards to wrong things. I have two physically and emotionally abusive, brain damaged parents and a wonderful little brother who I love more than life itself. After 25 years of drug cocktails that helped calm my temper and GAD by leaving me in zombie land (wasn't the worst, I was able to go to college, swim competitively, and even convince the stupid city council to not be so Scrooge-ish.) I have two pharma drugs left due 25 years of severe side effects to everything else - Lamictal and Li
  7. Hi I'm Chiaroscuro, I've been away for a few years. I have bipolar type 1 and Generalised Anxiety Disorder which I (& a GP Dr) believe has worked its way up to Panic Disorder. I also have an underactive thyroid and asthma. I'm a wife and mother and am just trying to work out how to live my life and be the best, most happy and mentally stable person I can be I look forward to getting to know you all and to getting reacquainted with others I already know.

  9. I wish I could pinpoint just how I got here... but I had probably 30 tabs open, and I have no idea which one brought me here... lol To the introduction... I'm 27, I live with my fiance and my cat, and have been dealing with various mental issues and their fallout since I was 12. I developed my father's no-fuse temper at 11. By 12-13, I was taking my junk bike full-speed around gravel corners because the road-rash felt like something. 14-year-old me discovered razors and how to keep dangerous secrets. 22 found me in an abusive relationship, far from my parents, with insurance I couldn't afford
  10. Hello. You can call me rotten, candy, pink, or the whole name. I will respond to any way you say it. This isn't my first time joining one of these forums, but this one by far appeals to me the most, I think. There's not much to say at the moment. I am doing pretty well, I am on disability leave from work and college and in semi-recovery. I might have to go into a day rehab clinic in February. Otherwise, we shall see how things turn out. Thank you for reading, and I look forward to meeting you!
  11. Hi everyone, nice to meet you all. I'm a young female woman who's suffered from depression and OCD since she was very young (think strange 8 year-old jumping in front of cars). These days, however, I'm on the SNRI Cymbalta, and combined with a strong support systems my symptoms almost disappear. I'm getting over Cymbalta withdrawal right now - I only missed a day and a half, but the symptoms came back like a chair to the face - but I thought I'd introduce myself to y'all right now. I've stumbled over this board a few times before, and I admire your no bs attitudes. And because people ar
  12. Hey everyone! My name is Nora, I'm twenty-two, and I'm currently working part-time as a barista and a nanny. Eventually I would like to move to a commune in Virginia, then pursue a career as a doula and childbirth educator. My offical, documented dx include dysthemia with major depressive episodes (rapid-cycling), GAD, psychophysiological insomnia, PTSD (and all the fun side effects that come with it), and EDNOS. I have had two suicide attempts (only one of them was serious, the other was in a moment of panic and I realized I didn't mean it). As a result, I've been psych-hospitalized t
  13. Hi, I'm new here (obviously) I'm 32 years old and have been dealing with some sort of mental illness for as long as I can remember. Currently diagnosed with severe depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder with panic attacks and agoraphobia. I feel as though my fears and phobias are really what feed my depression. If I were able to get those symptoms under control, I might not be so sad. I am currently in an intensive out patient program which has been great. I still have a long way to go. I fear I will never have the skills to function as I once did and I will never be hap
  14. Hmm, how should I start my first post? How about "HI!" No, no, not subtle enough. It will have to do for now. I suppose some stats would be nice, huh? 39 F Midwest. I'm not very creative, hence the nick being the same as my cat. Two kids, one of which is in jail. Husband, 44 had a heart attack in November of '12 and occasionally gets the blues. Me? Today is my birthday! GO ME! I was in the hospital five days ago for a "heart event". They put two stents in me and placed me on Caredevilol and Efficet. I'm shaky as all hell so this post is taking forever. I was on medication
  15. Hey! So, I'm new here obviously, and this is going to be my attempt at an introduction (man, am I awful at these! LOL). "So, the Username, explain?": Thirteen, YES from the doctor on "House", but I also quite like the name. Plus, my first choice was taken, I wanted to be Batman. Shame. "That's fine, but what about the person behind the Username?": I'm known as "Julz" (pronounced "Jewels", but that spelling is hella lame), I'm 25 years old, a chick, and I live in Ontario, Canada. I'm a vegan (have been for 3 years), and I'm in a happy relationship of over 2 1/2 years. "So why did
