    I'm surprised I'm not a raving psychopath

    really...! Mad parents. Mad jobs with 'mad' people! (Worked mental health!!) had homes, lost homes. Seen way too much inhumanity to man(as a social worker 25 years) Yep. Fully expect to lose my marbles in my dotage. Just surprised it hasn't happened yet.

    I get in very self destructive moods sometimes.

    I want to binge eat, or buy a pack of cigarettes, or be mean to people that care about me. But somehow it's so great. I feel powerful. I want to **** **** up, inflict pain on myself and other people, and it makes me feel so good.

    I'm battling anxiety

    and mood swings and it's tearing all of my relationships apart. I feel helpless and worthless and I don't know what to do or how to change. My emotional responses to seemingly small happenings will sometimes be inappropriate and grandiose. I'm terrified of losing my family, my...

    Mental Health

    I used to be very concerned about my mental health, I'm not any longer. I still have my moments and I'll take it as they come.

    Under a lot of strain,

    Iv always needed to hide how I feel, or be strong for others, but I'm cracking, there is nothing stable in my life, and I truly welcome a graceless fall.

    In my friendship group I am "the one with

    issues". And what's worse is that I brought it all upon myself.

    Probably Much To Concerned..

    on a recent hospitalization I was told not to go to any mental health practitioners.. I am on just a safe antidepressant whose off lable use is for sleep problems. I felt out of place when I was in the hospital, seeing the shape most were in.. a lot of the patients were all...

    Because the world doesn't look right to me.

    There are hungry people who need to be fed, homeless folks who need a place to stay. I can't understand how property can be private. I thought the earth belonged to all those who walked it. Money doesn't really exist, and neither does time. I think we've been brainwashed into...

    I Don't Know What To Do

    I am increasingly concerned that I may have suffered a breakdown of some sort. Maybe a few. I have done little to address my issues as I am crippled by fear. This is my first foray into admitting I am in trouble. So it is a positive step. It is a splendid day outside but I...

    This is kind of perverse to admit,

    My panic attacks are getting more frequent now,

    among other things. It's getting to the point that it seriously interferes with my daily activities since I can't get anything done if I feel like I'm going to die. I just want them to go away.

    as a child, in the same year I nearly lost my grandpa to alcoholism, and had to save my dad's life. Recently I've been very ill, I was hospitalised for a month. I think this stuff has had a traumatising effect on me, I feel as if I'm over it all now though, I feel that the...
