I have family but they don't truly understand. I just got out of a physically, mentally and emotional abusive relationship. Growing up i suffered verbal abuse. I was also bullied in school. I don't have friends, im a loner. I suffer from depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder. Ive dealt with this since about the age of 11. No mental health doesn't go away, it doesn't mean your life is over either. It's not a death wish. Its something you have to cope and learn to manage. Stay Strong! You got this! Don't give up. I'M 26.
Was experience hypomania and now think I’m crashing and am thinking about all the mistakes I’ve made 🙃
Hey Everyone. @tess-graham just joined the group. Please join me in welcoming them and introducing yourself here!
I hate it when I feel okay then I get side swiped by my own emotions and have a meltdown 😖😭
I just SH because my brother went off on me and my grandma and I don’t know what to do anymore. I’m here visiting so I’m trying to figure out if I wanna try to find an Uber or a hotel but I really don’t want to be alone I’m so scared I don’t know what to do. Everything is falling apart for the 100th time in my life and I don’t know if I can take it anymore.
I'm finishing now to watch the new Demi Lovato documentary and was thinking about a thing or two. I tend to run away from pain like I can't watch news for example, cause I'm too empathic and will feel overwhelmed by it. I can't watch those TV series like This is us cause it's too much for me to handle and so on, in the last weeks I am going through so much pain inside and I can't run away from that. I watch stuff like this but I also realised that I need to give myself a break cause that's not healthy, sure is not healthy even the other way around for which I only surround myself with happy stuff and self hype until I explode in a mental breakdown but at the moment if I want to feel better and recover a little from all of this depression episode I need to give myself a break from other pain too. Or am I wrong?
Hating jeez I can’t type sorry guys
I am in a huge a fight with my break up that I didn't call. I'm heartbroken over a relationship that keeps teasing me. I'm done!!!! My life sucks. I've decided to get off my lithium and Lamictal. I'd rather be manic than depressed. Thus is a go. So what if I've ruined my life, done it before. Don't give a shit anymore.

How many people are so stable on meds that they miss the intense emotions? I miss that full body “best day ever” high. I am just middle of the road. I can still get really happy and sad, but overall I’m middle of the road nothing extreme. It’s weird being “normal”. I feel so much better, but my brain is so used to the roller coaster that I miss it. (The good parts) side note- I’m starting counseling to learn how to live without chaos or self sabotage. Hopefully I can learn how to live a more positive uplifting lifestyle. What are you doing/have done to break your habits of self sabotage?
Hope you all is doing ok
Tired of feeling meh
My brain has been my worst enemy lately. I've been stressed about everything thats changing for me and everything I have to do to prepare myself. Instead of manic organization like usual, I shut down almost completely. I stopped eating, sleeping and drinking and didn't even notice. Im heading back up now but it was terrifying to realize how severe it got again. Spending hours in my head and not realizing my body needed care. There been such a disconnect lately

I need someone to talk to about addictions rn is here someone please
Anyone up to talk about this disorder we share, hit me up.
I was diagnosed with Bipolar after a nervous breakdown and several trips to the hospital... had a rough few years getting myself to a good place and since being diagnosed, I have had to wrap my head around the condition and understand it. What I struggle with is explaining it to others sometimes... like they just don’t get it and don’t know how to handle episodes or why they happen despite the information being there... it can affect relationships with people who don’t understand and make it difficult to express myself without annoying anyone... wish I didn’t have it
Hey guys, haven’t been active in some time, but I’m back, better than ever (well not really, but still really good) Sending good vibes to all☀️

Currently going through stressful times. Everything has been okay the past yr since finding somewhat right medicines, but starting to get akathisia from all the medicines I take (lithium, lamotrigine, aripripazole, buspirone) and now on propanolol to control the akathesia. I’m a hairstylist so the nervous shakes and anxiety on top of my moods and irritability make is extremely hard for me to work. Nearly impossible. The propanolol has helped considerably but I don’t wanna be stressed out this much. It’s causing my mental health to go down. I was a veterinary nurse beforehand and have an interview at an emergency vet hospital as reception tomorrow and this is a really big decision to step down and do something else. I have limitations and I know myself well enough to know that if I keep doing what I’m doing I’ll pay the price. Idk, I don’t wanna give up but sometimes giving up and trying something new that fits me would be better. What do y’all think? I fight daily to keep myself in check and feel stupid when I am off or strange feeling. Like I wanna explain why I am the way I am but can’t. I just know something needs to change!!!
Love all you
Live you all
I’m having a tough week. I’ve been on the same pills for over a year now (zyprexa and Zoloft) does anyone else take these? They work pretty well for me but the weight gain is an issue. And the weird thing is this last week I’ve been super depressed and it’s not like me. I’m graduating with my BA in May and I’m so excited!!! But I’ve had so much stress these past couple of months that now I’m getting depressed. Does anyone else get depressed with stress? And feeling so alone is always bad. Any advice would be grand! :)
Hi everyone, I'm here if anyone ever wants to chat. Don't worry about the timing or content. I'm in British Summer Time and will reply in the day if I get something overnight.
