Self fulfilling prophesy

I have this problem where, when I have a couple days in a row without major moods swings, I get SUPER paranoid that a big depressive slump is coming (It's happened before). The problem is, I seem to create drama in my life whenever things are going well. It's like I am so afraid of falling victim to mood swings that I make things bad on purpose out of a need to feel in control. I just had a huge fight with my partner, which I started, for this exact reason. Does anyone else have the… read more

I am starting a gratitude loop, and was wondering who would be interested, you post 3 a day, then send it on...?

I'll start it as soon as I get to see if anyone wants to do it, no matter how big or small of a group, I'll do it regardless. i have 5 people already, from posting to my wall. Send it on, then it goes as far as it's going to, every day, and also, if you're interested, a self-love to do for yourself, like getting a mani or pedi, sleeping in, getting your hair cut, going for a walk, anything that… read more

Are there any petite (weighing under 100lbs) 20 year olds taking antidepressants?

I'm 21 and I weigh 85lbs. I just wanted to know if there are any other young petite women who take antidepressants.

I'm going to start for the first time in a couple weeks and I'm a little worried about the dosage and possible side effects. I've never taken meditation before and I would like if someone could tell me what I should expect.

My psychiatrist recommend half a Zoloft pill every morning.

mental illness or just her?

My mother has always been up and down. Shes never been a very happy person, I think she has a TBI because when she was 18 years old she was in a car wreck and hit both sides of her head. They wanted her to get an MRI but she said she couldnt do it. Her mother said that she changed after that. Her downs have been major, she wont sleep and when she doesnt sleep or eat she ends up going in and out of reality. Shes better at taking care of herself now but she is still emotionally abusive… read more
