Hi I just wanted some input on what happened with my old psychiatrist as it's really bothering me. Four weeks after my dose was increased I started to get more and more sleepy and tired to the point that I was bedridden most of the day. I also felt weak and dizzy like you do when you have a flu, but I'm certain I didn't have a virus or anything like that as this has happened to me before when I've been on too high a dose. I was like this for a week and basically… read more
Because we live in a very remote area and because of health reasons, I don't drive much, I am scheduled to see a tele psychiatrist tomorrow. I saw one a couple of times in person, but he didn't say it, but he didn't know how to help me. My anxiety is horrible, but they didn't do controlled substances. Then, I drove about 40 miles to see a psychiatrist on the screen and she said, I will see you in a month and didn't do anything at all. What's with people that everybody wants to wait? I'm loosing… read more
A year ago I sent a text to my cousin railing on her for not attending my son's high school graduation party. I have three cousins and two of them have 3 adult children each. I have attended many if not most of their functions including: high school graduations, college graduations, assisted with wedding and baby showers, funerals, and attended weddings. Only 2 family members came to my son's graduation.
Obviously, it bothered me.
So I… read more
Do you think there is a correlation between having depression or bipolar disorder and being abused? Has anyone felt like they areistreated, looked down on, even harassed in their places of work? Is this normal? Do we open ourselves up to it or do people take advantage of our disorders?

When they say they've tried 12 times and they aren't much older than that in years it's just weird. Don't get me wrong, suicide is awful and tragic but some people trivialize it by saying things like that. I'm sorry if I offended anyone in advance because I know I have.
I'm meeting for the first time my niece who is 12 who I've noticed has some very dark posts about feelings (kids these days are too grown up) on FB interaction. Also my 19 and 17 yr old nephews will be meeting me. I've said in the past when I was cutting and bandaged up that it was an accident. I'm not good at making up lies, so I say it was an accident then try to change the topic as a distraction hoping they… read more
My partner seems to struggle to comprehend the illness, doesn't understand how crippling it can be, and isn't always supportive. How are your partners? How can I help him to understand? Thanks in advance for your help
I know some of you might find it strange that I ask this, but I need the answer to this. I find it really hard to tell people what exactly is on my mind, so I just don't say. I can't even find a way to open up to my family. Every I see them I have the urge to say something but the words don't come out of my mouth. So how did you do it? You'd help me a lot.
Thanks in advance.
