Does your level of pain change depending on your level of depression and/or anxiety level?

Does your depression and/or anxiety manifest as increased pain? I've found mine tends to. I have joint pain in my knees daily. The weather plays a factor in that, but I often find that if my depression and/or anxiety is elevated, so is the level of pain, and I tend to move around a lot slower. Does anyone else feel that? How do you deal with it?

How where you diagnosed with Bipolar?

So right now in my recovery process I'm wondering if there is more to my story and I'm seeking a reevaluation. I have an appointment but I have a feeling about what they are going to say. Does anyone have any stories that will give me a better understanding of bipolar because the internet can only give you a general scope. I have massive mood swings that have began to make life difficult for my family and friends. I can't sleep but I'm tired all the time. One hour I'm crying… read more

Ketamine

I took ketamine as a recreational drug for years. I've seen many people, including myself, have many dark times and seeing my friend take half a teaspoon in one sniff of this devil, is enough to make anybody want to stop using it. When dosed in large amounts, it's an amazingly indifferent feeling, a feeling that can easily ruin a life. Anyone else?

What do people class as self harm?

I have struggled with self harming, and urges to do so. By this I mean using a knife or scissors to cut myself. I still get the urges often but don't act on them. For some time now though I distract myself from acting on those urges by doing things such as picking at my skin, scratching myself, or biting into the inside of my lips etc. Is this still self harming? Am I kidding myself thinking I no longer self harm, when really all I have done is changed my methods, I don't know… read more
