  • Has anyone else had a complete mental breakdown, and have fear it will reoccur?

    While I was in college, my dad was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. I wasn't living at home, and I was having long commutes everyday to my classes (over 3 hours on the road). In addition to that, I had a part-time job where I didn't feel I was being appreciated. After my dad passed, I thought I was coping well. I continued on for about a week without any real problems. But, one day, I woke up and I couldn't understand where I was, or who I was supposed to be (I knew I was supposed to be someone, just no idea who). Everything was foreign to me (I couldn't understand what the digits on my alarm clock meant). I suffered a complete mental breakdown and was lost to the world. After years of treatment and my mom's loving care, I'm finally on the road to recovery, albeit very slowly. As I slowly try to rebuild my life, I feel a constant tug at my psyche, like a small dog wanting attention, pawing the back of your leg. It feels like at any moment, I could lose everything again, and this time... I won't recover. This fear gnaws at me, threatening to loosen my resolve. Is anyone else going through something similar?
  • Has anyone here been diagnosed as bipolar (1 or 2)?

    I was diagnosed as bipolar 2, once (though I'm not sure I believe it, as I've had a ton of different diagnosis-es throughout the years, and only one doc ever labelled me with BP2), and my boyfriend has bipolar 1. I'm more curious about BP1, right now as, though he's been doing very well for a long time, it's probably in my best interest to be looking into what to do if/when the BF has bipolar episodes...
  • lithium and geodon

    is anyone one these and did they work for you?
  • Tongue Picking Problem

    I'm not sure if I have anxiety or ocd but am very skeptical that I do. I have an odd problem with picking/pulling off taste buds. Ive had this problem for as long as I can remember, i get so into it I dont even notice when I do it until my tongue is missing chunks and my fingers are bloody. Its so disgusting, unsanitary, painful, and just weird. I dont know whats wrong with me and i dont know how to stop.
