    Ocd

    I've had touches of it. My friend counts his steps. I don't know what satisfaction he gets from it, or why he does it. I DARE not try it, then I might like it and start doing it. The thought of getting caught up in it scares me.

    Depression

    Haha, the biggie. Since 15, I had suspicions I was sexually abused as a child. The the masochistic fantasies came. The the therapists and the meds at 18. Prozac was my first. My "hero" in green and white. Ever since, it's been different meds, and this companion of darkness has...

    Back Here Again

    Ok, so I doubt if anyone is going to read this, but I don't have anyone to talk to so here goes... I recently decided to come off my anti-depressants despite my doctor advising against it, I felt like I wanted a clearer head and ironically, didn't think they were working. I'd...

    Bulimia

    I did try it once, and couldn't make myself throw up. I can't imagine how traumatic it must be to do this on a regular basis.

    Anxiety/panic Attacks

    I'm afraid to go out of my house. I can't explain why. I just feel so exposed. I usually wear a hat that at least hides my eyes. I don't like people being able to see me from their cars. And the anxiety. Alot of days, I wake up with it. The nausea and the fear. And the panic...

    I Will Begin

    I am going to start by writing about my different issues and how they have affected me. I hope others will feel free and comfortable with joining and sharing their stories. Any abuse or harrassment will be reported.

    Schizophrenia

    I am lucky to not suffer from this, thank God. I've worked with people as a counselor, and lived with someone from when I was a baby to age 17 that had schizophrenia. I find the disorder itself and they way they think fascinating. If I could get a hold of a book that had...

    Anorexia

    I've had bouts with this off and on. Nothing long-lasting, but I can understand the mindset. Especialy I see pictures of models in magazines or wherever. Then, I'll tell myself "I don't want to eat today." It never wins out though. I can't take how much my stomach hurts and the...
