    Fairly certain I'm schizophrenic

    So I know people are going to tell me that It's not likely but hear me out. I've been trying to find a diagnoses for severe hypersomnia for over a year, but my sleep doctors have given up on trying to figure it out and have labeled it Idiopathic hypersomnia, which is just medical jargon for: is sleepy, but we don't know why. Figuring that I still need a way forward, because 400mg of modafinil and 30mg of adderral feels like it's doing more damage than helping, I decided to talk to....

    Will it increase my insurance costs if I admit to my doctor I'm an alcoholic?

    Hi, I’m an alcoholic and suffer from depression. The depression has gotten worse over the last several years. I have never taken medication for it. I realize it’s a cycle.

    I feel so lost and overwhelmed

    I see a psychiatrist and a therapist. I just lost my therapist of over 3 years and that's so hard for me. She moved to far away for me to follow her and she's amazing. I go tomorrow to see my new one for the second time. I want to just keep myself secluded most of the time. I don't want to talk to my friends or family about anything I'm going through. I don't want to be felt sorry for nor worry them. I also have PTSD and triggers. I'm so tired of the pain but that doesn't....
