    Chemo And Hearing Voices

    I'm a cancer survivor. :) I had stage 2 cancer. After this I had to go to the psych ward of several occasions. The psych said the chemo may have given me a chemical imbalance in my brain. I don't hear voices, but a voice that torments me day and night. I can't find medicine that...

    Stop self diagnosing yourself with mental

    health problems. It's not a fashion accessory. Just because sometimes you're happy then sad doesn't mean you have BIPOLAR. Just because you get worried before an exam or interview doesn't mean you have ANXIETY. Just because you get down in the dumps sometimes or your...

    Admire Yourself

    This is something I read in a book lately and it left a real impression on me. It's very simple, but powerful especially for someone with a low self esteem like me. It just talked about the fact that one should admire himself if he wants others to admire him. It doesn't mean to...

    I Am NOT Bipolar

    You see, Bipolar Disorder is a medical condition. I'm a person. But now that you mention it, I do happen to have the medical condition of Bipolar Disorder II. You don't say, "Poor John, I hear he is cancer." I am not Bipolar; I have Bipolar. I will not be reduced to a judged...
