Embarrassing question?

Embarrassing question?

I find myself biting or picking my skin a lot. I used to bite my nails and when I got an infection (nothing too serious) I stopped by just picking the skin around it and I find myself biting my skin of my fingers or rubbing my teeth over my nails. Now it seems that I'm doing it without really noticing.

Depression/Bipolar II (hypomania)

Depression/Bipolar II (hypomania)

My particular type of Bipolar II is called ultra rapid cycling (ultradian), which means there can be several significant mood swings in a single day. Here's a typical day: I wake up feeling… read more

High sex drive

High sex drive

Hi all,

Thanks for taking the time to read my message, I am at a point of being desperate and don’t know what the solution is.

I have suffered with depression all my adult life (I am 31) and have had periods where I have been perfectly in control with medication.

However when I am not in control my sex drive is dangerously high. I have been in a (generally) happy relationship for 13 years but in the past 18 months since turning 30 I have been uncontrollable. I still love my boyfriend very much… read more

I don't think I hate my family I really really dislike their company. I'm so different from them, I feel relieved when I don't have to. I get very bad anxiety if I have to. Anyone else deal with this?

Anyone else experience a cancer diagnosis or medical condition that greatly impacted their Depression?

Anyone else experience a cancer diagnosis or medical condition that greatly impacted their Depression?

I was able to scoot by for several years dealing with my depression up until 2017 when I was diagnosed with melanoma cancer. After getting through the treatments I felt like my depression went downhill significantly and became very unmanageable, especially after my second melanoma diagnosis end of this last year. I know it sounds silly but I feel like my brain changed in some way after dealing with those… read more
