    I need someone for a meeting.

    I don't know how this whole thing works. I've never done this before. I need to talk to someone personally. I just can't talk to the people I know. So If anyone shares the thought, please let me know.

    Mood disorder

    I have recently been diagnosed with a mood disorder. My question is regarding the medicine I’ve been prescribed and the side effects I’m experiencing. I was first given Abilify which helped significantly with my mood but caused uncontrolled restlessness and much difficulty sleeping. I was then changed to Latina which has had the same basic effects. Does anyone know of mood stabilizers that do not have these nasty side effects?
  • Falling deeper into depression

    I had it all. A beautiful house, 2 amazing kids, a loving and supportive husband, a job I loved. We don't have a ton of extra money, but our home was overflowing with love. And then I found the messages between my husband and another woman. She lives in another state, so he never physically cheated, but this almost feels worse due to the circumstances. The messages spanned across 4 months. I went back in the messages between he and I during that time, to see if we were fighting or to find anything....

    This is hard for me to write this but I’m feeling miserable everyday I’m down and I don’t know why. I have a beautiful daughter who is my world but for some reason I’m always depressed. Yes I’ve had relationship problems in the past and that’s where it first began but now I’m afraid to get close to anyone for fear of rejection or getting to attached and then losing that person. I know this all sounds like I’m being a big cry baby. I just don’t know where to turn anymore.

    I have BPD, and have been trying to do all that I know to overcome the absolute hell that I experience every day in my own mind. I was asked by a someone in my support system yesterday if I want to be “normal.” Of course that is my number one goal. This one statement has caused my thoughts to race, and all my mind is telling me is that I’m worthless, a burden on everyone around me, and hopeless. I’m discouraged because I’ve fought daily to improve, but to no avail. I always fall back to feeling like....

    What's the point???

    I've been struggling with bouts of depression for the majority of my life. But the past year few years have been extraordinarily challenging. I got divorced from my best friend after a 13 year love affair. We had our ups and downs, but we always loved each other deeply. We just kept having the same fight and he finally decided to give up on us. We are still very good friends, and he will always be my person! But he has been struggling with some very serious health problems over the past few years....
