    An appeal to reason

    I've been trolling this board for a week again and wanted to speak to catseyes. It has been difficult reading many of your responses; particularly those regarding marijuana and other medications. I applaud you for completing the NAMI courses and taking time to educate others, but those courses don't replace medical school. As someone who has covered the Nami information and then some I can say you are wrong on so many levels. Your responses to medications in particular are usually inaccurate....

    Loss of feelings and thoughts.

    I am a 28 year old mother of three children. Married to my partner for 5 years, together for 12. I have no career, no work experience, no ambitions. I don’t see or talk with many people, other than my children. I know I have depression, I have been struggling with it for years. This past year has just been really intense. I cry daily, most of the time I don’t even know why.. I don’t feel like doing anything, ever. I gained a lot of weight and feel very unattractive, I have always been uncomfortable....

    Depression, Injury and self imposed isolation

    I am 47 and have a decades long history of depression that has been compounded by anxiety and ADD. I'm sure that anyone who is taking the time to read on has experienced mental illness in some form so I really don't need to go into details. Eight weeks ago I fell down a flight of stairs and usually I would laugh it off but this time it really wasn't funny. I am confined to a wheelchair and have no desire to leave my bedroom. There are two flights of stairs for me to scoot down just to....

    Always terrified

    I was diagnosed with anxiety a few years ago. I had panic attacks from things like people yelling, co worker drama, ect. But recently it’s gone down a different path. When I hear things like planes or helicopters outside I make someone check or check myself to see that that’s what it is because otherwise I start to panic that it’s a middle or a meteor. When I hear my phone ding I check right away to make sure it’s not the kind of “you’re about to get hit by a ballistic middle” messages like they....

    idk what to do

    Hi everyone. I am 17 years old and I really enjoy talking to others and hanging out with my friends. The thing is that my real friends live really far away and I feel really depressed when I am on my home. I have not a lot of friends here and I don't seem to be able to do anything to improve it. I have been trying constantly since I was 14. I have been bullied on primary and junior high school and I think that's the main source of the problem. Therefore I am way too scared to talk to people....
