I moved into an apartment in June 2009 and I started having obsessive thoughts about cockroaches. To make myself clear, I've never seen a real, live cockroach and I've never seen one in my apartment either. I have been having severe anxiety over this, to the point where I will not sleep with my lights off or leave dishes in the sink or garbage in the garbage can. To make it even more clear, I've never even seen a spider in my apartment. To add to my anxiety, my landlord put gel in all the apartments in order to kill off bugs on Wednesday (specifically cockroaches) and now I'm really freaking out. My parents are coming on the weekend to use caulking on all the nooks and crannies in my apartment; this is what other family members have done when they lived in buildings where other people were having cockroach issues and they never got them. I am to the point where I want to break my lease and move even though I've never seen a bug! What are other ways besides the gel and caulking to keep them out? If anyone has any advice please help me. I would look stuff up online myself, but I can't even stand to look at pictures of the bastards.

I spent six weeks in the hospital following my overdose. I’m heading home now. I quit my job and will be going to intensive outpatient program. I’m just happy to be going back to my family. I missed them dearly
I remember how much I thought I had bipolar, I honestly still go happy sad happy sad happy sad every once in a while, not even realizing I’m doing it half the time. It runs pretty bad in our family, just any mental illnesses, really. My parents both take medicine, my mom’s bipolar and so is her dad, my grandfather. Things like that. I remember telling the doctor how my mood would go like that...
