how do you stop, your mind from just cutting you down? I have had depression, all my life, but didn't realize anything was wrong, until I was about 20 years old. I basically knew something was wrong with me, I was diagnosed with ADD, when I was young, probably around ten. I was always a dreamer, a lover, a pessimist? call it what you will. my parents had depression, my whole family had depression, in one form or another. my inability to make decisions, that… read more
How should you feel?
My dad was the most caring person I knew, always made the teas, cleaned, spent time with us made us a treehouse, worked hard he was my hero! We had a close relationship and I was his princess... until I turned 13 and realised, what he was doing wasn’t right. I wrote a letter and they took me from school to tell them in person. That was the last time I ever saw him in our home. My mum was devastated. When a woman is raped it’s an evil thing and hard to survive but… read more

I keep hearing people use "depressed" instead of "sad" or "OCD" instead of particular. Friends will say they had a panic attack when they mean they got freaked out over something. A cast member today mentioned schizophrenia while the other girls laughed while she sat on the floor. Does this offend/annoy anybody else? It especially hurts when your friends KNOW you have mental health problems and still say such insensitive things… read more
I deal with depression and many other things to add to that. Some days it is almost impossible for me to even want to leave my room or bed. Then there is the fact that I do have a seizure disorder which does not help with wanting to sleep all day or the depression. Well my family always tells me that what happened to me is not that bad and that I need to move on from the past since my grandmother had something similar happen to her and she suppressed it… read more
I have major depression and I just got over a rather bad episode and now my TN is just killing me. I am supposed to be taking gabapentin 300mg a day. I love the gabapentin because it does help but it takes three weeks to get into your system and it makes me so drowsy it drains me completely. Ive been taking it everyday like im supposed to the last four or five days but its just constant dull pain now. The ice pack helps a little… read more

Are there others out there that have been going through the "roller coaster ride" from hell?
What do you do to keep yourself from not going the same path? I don't want to be here anymore.
I had a boyfriend that I thought was finally the one and he turned out to be not the one. I found out he does drugs and is a womanizer and has p*** addiction. I end up leaving while he was at work. He said that I was wrong for not trying to see if it would change but he always fight against me. Even though I left him still I thought he was the one and I need to get it out of my system how do I go about doing that because I keep thinking about him all the time even though I… read more
In addition to Bipolar 1, I suffer from severe social anxiety. This is not an uncommon combo. And the interplay is complex. In general, the worse the one, the worse the other. The symptoms were visible from a very young age. Like, three. I never had any friends. Never went out. Could barely speak to anyone apart from my immediate family - and even that was difficult. Couldn’t interact with strangers at all. I wasn't just shy. I wasn't just introverted, or a bit of a loner. I was… read more
