    I think I’m over-prescribed depression medication and need a second opinion

    Hello, Recently I spoke to a psychologist, therapist and psychiatrist about my depression and anxiety. The intake procedure seemed really short and making sure the medication I was prescribed would be a correct dosage accounting my body weight amongst other things was never really taken in. In other words, they prescribed me a dosage of 25mg of Zoloft. I’ve been told that Zoloft is addictive. I’m a female, mid 20’s and weigh around 90lbs. I do not have a history of taking anxiety/depression medication....

    What is this feeling?

    Hello All, Sorry for such a long post I’m having a very hard time figuring out what this feeling I have can be, so I thought someone here might be able to point me in the right direction. Maybe three or four times a month I get this feeling that I can only describe as time moving faster than normal? I can almost always recognize when I’m in this “state” because if I’m watching tv or music is playing they are talking so quickly, it feels as though my thoughts are “normal” speed but everything around....

    I am a 15 year old who doesn’t know how to talk about what I’m dealing with

    Hi I am a 15 year old girl who is struggling a great deal with how to tell my family and friends how I feel.

Sometimes I wonder whether everyone would be better is I ran away. I constantly....

    Can you compartmentalize a physical person

    I am a domestic violence survivor and know I have compartmentalized the entire event emotionally. My question can compartmentalization include a physical person and not their voice? Can you be afraid or have no feelings at all during an event in which you physically present, but on the phone have a positive response, laughter, joking etc but no fear? Can you mind make it so that the person only exists over the phone?

    Getting undressed at doctor's office.

    I don't know why but I remember once being naked at the pediatrician when I was very young and it made me feel very strange. Ever since I think I would always never have to get undressed when I would go to future doctors. And now my current doctor is retiring and I don't know what I can do. I don't like the feeling of not having my clothes on in that sterile room. What if I have to wear those gowns?

    Angry all the time

    I am 80 years old. All of my friends have either died or moved on. My children live far away (and one of them no longer speaks to me). My husband is non-communicative (and often drinks too much). I am very isolated (except for my little dog). And I find that I am angry and/or worried all the time. The current political scene makes me very angry. I cannot talk about it. The current coronavirus situation makes me very angry. But I really think that the anger is just another manifestation of a long....

    Help!

    I am so tired. Tired of waking up every single day and dealing with depression, anxiety, and all the symptoms that go with it. I have been on antidepressants for several years. They worked for a while but now I feel like I am at the bottom of a deep black well with no way out. I try so hard to fight but I always lose. I hate the way my family looks at me and how much they are hurting too. I just wish I had a "normal" life.

    Bipolar depression

    My life used to be great and I had no problems dealing with depression. I remember the day it all began. It was right before my 22nd birthday when my brother got sent to prison. I didn't go to the courthouse with him that day because none of us expected him to get sent off just probation for an assault charge. Every since then I've dealt with depression as I started spiralling that day. I started to think it was my fault that it happened, so I attempted to OD. I was self admitted to the psychiatric....
