    Looking for someone to share my mind with

    Hi everyone, Not sure how to begin, but I suppose that is a beginning in and of itself :) I wish I could just invite you all inside my mind - have a look around, and see if I'm someone you want to have anything to do with. It seems a futile effort for anyone to describe who they are and how they feel, but I'll do my best within the limited framework of a forum post. At least the basic facts are easy. I am diagnosed as BPD2 with obsessive compulsive tendencies. I am Male, 40 years old, married....
  • I tried to die last night~~~~

    For as long as I can remember, that I never felt happy since I was a little girl. I always felt very alone, and not worthy of being loved as I never really felt loved. When I tried to commit suicide for the first time in 1988, I know that it was more of a cry for help. I was put on meds. and after a week my mother decided that I should stop the meds and threw the medication in the toilet. Not much longer after that I started to self-medicate with drugs & alcohol. So I lived my life like that....

    Anyone feel unaccepted because of mental illness?

    I am getting up there in years and have never been married. It seems that most men who don't have an illness don't have the resources to cope with my illness,or can't be bothered to try,and I don't fit in with men who have an illness. don't get me wrong I am not looking for a date, I just want to know if any of the other women have this problem. I work with children, therefore I don't have much money, and am unemployed right now because of my illness. People at my church have....

    mania

    I was diagnosed last summer with bipolar disorder after a manic episode and I was doing good, but I feel that if I don't take my meds I go back into mania. I don't know whether I want to get better or just like the feeling of being manic.

    Help?

    Hi. I'm 15 and have been concerned about my mental health for quite a while now, but I have never mentioned it to someone who could help in an effective way. My states of depression are getting quite hard to deal with, as I usually feel so low that it's tough to do various activities and be around people in general. I also experience high periods where I feel overly-happy, or even get in trouble for being too energetic. I usually don't sleep much during these high periods. I've done....

    Guys, I need herbal remedies for paranoia. I really need help. This paranoia is ruining my life and I can’t afford legitimate medications and therapy. I won’t have the ability to get that kind of help for almost a year. I need any kind of herbal remedies you can suggest. I can’t try Kava Kava as it has alcoholic type side effects and I work all day and can’t have that. Please somebody help me.
