    So...I realized today...that my brain does not work...at all.. I have racing thoughts ...but I can't actually formulate any coherent thoughts...And when I am trying to get something done I can't focus on anything much less whatever I am working on...so nothing gets done.It's been this way for a while...but it has recently gotten worse. I guess years of untreated mental illness has lead to the...

    I Hate Depression!

    Hi All!I haven't been on for awhile, but decided to come back tonight. I was diagnosed with depression last year and was prescribed 50 MG Sertraline HCL to help with it. I stopped taking it after 7 days because it kept me up all night. It worked for 4 days and then the 5th day it felt like I wasn't taking anything. I'm noticing that I've been really depressed. It's been slowly progessing for...

    I don't really know which direction my life is going anymore. Have been having suicidal thoughts and dreams on a regular basis for over a month now. It's very hard to find motivation to do anything, feels like everything is too hard. Anyone else relate to this?

    Will this actually help?

    Ummm, so somebody told me that talking to other people anonymously would help. I don't really know what to say. Every time I think about the future, the next hour, the next second, I start to fall. I have no motivation to move forward. I have no reason to keep trying. I don't remember what it is like to be happy, to look forward to life. I am just so tired of trying to live it. The days never get...

    What do you believe your shrink thinks about you? I started seeing mine 6 years ago and I've been pretty much been on and off sick since then. She constantly tells me I need to accept where I am, that I have a disability, its alright if I can't work - in other words - pretty much no hope of a better life.But the fact is before her, I was symptom free for 15 years. She's only seen me sick so I...

    Relief

    So, I had my first counseling session today (no waiting list) so it was great to get me in so fast. It was overwhelming bringing up trauma and talking about heavy stuff, it always is, and telling your story again and again and again does NOT get any easier... BUT I DID IT! I OPENED UP AND LAYED ALL THE CARDS ON THE TABLE. Getting it out there is hard, but once that part is over, they know best...

    Anxiety attack out of control

    Nightmares have returned to the point of sleep being a fearful experience rather than restful. Fear driving a PTSD souped up on multiple medications measuring the days lately by how many or how few fear induced episodes happens to be in the majority. Returned from VA hospital today with an increase in both anxiety and sleep medication. Idea being to sleep through nightmares and not waken to a get...
