    First post

    Never had a worry until a few years ago. In the last 3 years I lost my mother and had health issues. Well it was a bit of a battle but it looks like I beat my health issues. Problem is metally I am a wreck. Every little ache I think is fatal. Cant get passed the loss of my mother. I am a 56 year old male and proud dad of teenage twin girls. Not to get totally in to it but I am basically sole provider to them both financially and emotionally. Always was so strong until these last few years. I see....

    Reducing quetiapine, withdrawal and hypomania.

    A couple of weeks ago, I reduced my dose of Q from 200mg to 150, with my pdoc's agreement. But after only one week, I started going high - nothing serious, but noticeably wired, VERY chatty and overly cheerful and friendly. I don't usually get hypersexuality, but I did notice my interest in the opposite starting to spike a bit, which I found surprising, because, as I say, that's a new symptom for me. Anyway, I saw my pdoc this week and he's advised me to increase the dose of Q back....

    I don’t know what to do.

    I’ve not been feeling normal for weeks. Let’s start with my mental state. I have anxiety, depression, and PTSD. I have struggled with these since about 6th grade. I haven’t eaten a lot over the past 6 months so I’ve bevome malnourished. But I’m trying to eat more again bevaude things aren’t right. I don’t feel “here” I guess. It’s hard to explain, but I just don’t feel like I’m on earth. I also have horrible memory loss. I’ll forget things I was just talking or thinking about. I overthink everything....

    I can't deal with what's going on in my family's life

    I have 4 children. Years ago one of my kids was admitted to a psych hospital. Through therapy I find out that my 12year old molested my baby girl who is 10years younger than her. They were both naked and my older child put my baby on her stomach and bounced up and down while using a vibrator on herself. The therapist said that my older child was too young to know what she was doing . Nothing further was done about it. I didn't think that my young child would remember anything . I found out recently....

    Alzheimer's or mental illness?

    My mother has just remarried her husband of 25 years after an 8 year split. He has numerous health problems including diabetes and heart disease. He has a pacemaker. My mom finally confided in me that he wakes up at night hallucinating about beings that are in their bedroom. He shouts obscenities at her and scares her to death. I have tried to talk her into seeing his doctor by herself so that she can get help with what is going on. She insists that his doctor would be upset if she went behind her....

    Can a change in generic lamictal manufacturer cause bad side effects?

    I take lamotrigine 150mg twice daily for the last 3 years. My most recent refill had a different look, so I'm assuming a different manufacturer.this wouldn't be the first time, but it had never had a different effect. This time I immediately noticed strong side effects which I had not experienced before. They are bad enough that I cant drive or go to work after taking them. Is it possible that the change in manufacturer could have caused this?

    Feeling unwell

    I’m not clinically depressed (never been to a psychiatrist to confirm that, at least). Recently, I feel really overwhelmed. Generally, I feel like everyone around me will be happier without me around. I feel like an absolute burden to my family, my boyfriend and my friends. I feel like I’m drowning idk. I feel helpless too. When I ask my classmates for help regarding assignments, I feel like I don’t get any. I don’t want to bother my boyfriend because I know he’s burdened by other things. I can’t....

    My depression

    I suffer from depression and anxiety. I find myself lost, and confused. There’s a voice constantly in my head, and I can’t get it out. I can’t focus at school anymore, and my grades have dropped. I have panic attacks in the middle of the night, and I cry myself to sleep. I feel alone, like there’s nobody there for me when I seem to be there for everybody else. I can’t trust anybody, because everybody that I trust seems to hurt me. Most of my friends have left me, I’m afraid of judgement, and rejection....
