Medication prescriber issue?

I have a new ANP at the clinic I get services at, there has been turnover lately & I've had 3 different prescribers within the past year, was just getting comfortable with the last psychiatrist & they switched me to a new ANP.

That was the first I'd heard of that. Other providers there had given me… read more

Self harm. Scars

I had something happen the other day that embarrassed me and then made me angry. I used to burn. The inside of my left arm is a mass of scars. There are also some cut scars on each arm. There’s no way to cover them. Long sleeves when it’s 90+ out are not an option. I’ve never had anyone ask me to my face what was on my arm. The other day while sitting with other people this woman asked what was on my arm!!!!! I quickly hid it and mumbled a non answer. Now I’m furious. Has anyone else run into… read more

What are the differences between Persistent Depression and Depression?

Only way I know how to ask this question. It’s still foggy and convoluted in my mind. I have been having a hard time going out lately, even to the store. I had to force myself to get out for a bit. I’m not sad. I’m not happy, but I’m not sad. It’s what I would call an ordinary time but disappointed at the same time. I’d rather stay home and read a book.

The major depressions I’ve gone through have brought on tremendous rage and crying jags and… read more
