    Do you remember?

    I'm awful with pills. Getting prescribed antibiotics is like asking for a resilient continuation of whatever lead to a prescription in the first place.

    Fear of being kicked out

    Legally I am an adult, but considering what I have been through there should be some sort of valid excuse for staying this long. I was raised by an emotionally neglectful father who also used emotional abuse in order to punish me for normal mistakes. If I happened to drop a glass cup that is...

    Bipolar Disorder

    Bipolar Disorder - A mental disorder marked by alternating periods of elation and depression. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder some time ago, and I've been afraid to tell people. I can be in a good mood, when one rude comment suddenly sends me into an ocean of angry emotions. I'll feel...

    Dealing with Depression

    I was recovering but I noticed that 2017 has been a whole down year. I went spiraling back again to my worst of moments and lately it has reached again the peak that leads to the end. But the end is now a problem that it wasn't before: I used to be alone, but while I was recovering, I had to...

    Being a productive member of society?

    Being neurodivergent in a neurotypical world is exhausting. *negativity, cynicism, pessimism ahead It's so tiring waking up every morning even less enthusiastic about living to see another day than the day before. There are just so many expectations! Thinking about the "sweet release of...

    Is it easier to blame our behaviour on our mental health problems than to take responsibility?

    Please do not read if you are easily offended or triggered. I realise that the majority of us here on this forum will have diagnosed and undiagnosed mental health problems. Many of us will have had terrible things happen to us in our past that have traumatised us that shape the person who we...

    My piece of mind

    It's so ironic when someone who picked you up from misery, ended up breaking you. That's why i hate living. It's all about being picked up and destroyed by others. And feelings, i hate them. I don't want to feel a thing. I wonder how's it like to be numb from everything. I barely know what...
