Not a good Friday, I just received my Mental Health evaluation for S.S.I disability. I’m not feeling to good today, actually it’s my stress. I knew I was a stress case, but my MH doctor wrote a lot of things that she never told me about in my disability qualification letter. I wonder if she […]

Kind of a strange question, but let me try to explain. I honestly don’t know where this comes from, but everytime I see or hear about my girlfriend drinking I have this serious negative reaction where I get really angry/upset, my heartrate goes way up, and my stomach turns in knots. It’s f’ing weird, and […]

I seem to have reached my stress threshold yet again. It’s 1:15 in the morning and I can’t sleep. Of course, I went the route of self-medication and drank a bit of scotch but I forgot that I hadn’t drank in a while and that it would only put me in a depressive mood. What […]

I don’t see why these psychiatrists don’t understand this. I’ve been Xanax for 3+ months and its been a godsend to me. I can function and leave my house without and panic attacks. It works fairly quickly and just gives me the edge to go about my day and get my shit done. I don’t […]

Hello all, I have a recurring issue with anxiety/panic attacks that I used to have constantly through college (19-20 yrs old), but recently they’ve come back happening about once a week (I just turned 25). My question is, what do the anxiety meds out there do. The issue I have is once an attack starts […]

I think I had a panic attack tonight. I was reading a book that gave a description of the afterlife. I would post what it said, but I don’t want to have another one. Anyway, it triggered me thinking of death and the fact that one day I might have the same mental faculty I […]

I think I’m OCD about money (long… ugh)

Maybe "OCD" isn’t the correct term, but I find myself thinking about money constantly. My mind is consumed with the notion of acquiring and building wealth to the extent that it’s intruding upon my daily activities. I think it all stems from a fear of not having enough money. I was talking to my mom […]
