Overprotective Mother

I am a 21 year old female who has always been controlled by her mother, even now as an adult living independently. When I lived at home, arguments always ensued if I asked for permission to go out with friends and God forbid if I were interested in someone. Now that I live out of State, she calls me a minimum of 10 times a day and constantly wants to know where I’m at,...

I have a Dx of Bipolar Disorder and have had a few, brief dissociative episodes in the past (years ago before med compliance) in which I felt unreal, like I was floating and/or like time had stopped. However, something happened today that never has before. I was driving and very stressed for time due to work and I just became “unhinged” I guess. I don’t even have a vocabulary for it…I felt as if...

Terrified of Becoming a Schizophrenic

Ok well where do I start? I have been dealing with anxiety for about three years now. It started about 3 years ago after I interned at a hospital and was really stressed over getting hired there.

Lacking Motivation

I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I am feeling very clueless at times. I don’t know what I want out of life in general.

Pretty much I just sit and watch TV and just spend my time very unproductively and don’t want to be this way. I’m not depressed; it’s just my...

My husband and I have been married for over 10 years. Last Sept. I was admitted into the ICU for Serotonin Syndrome. I don’t remember much of it except for my husband telling me that I almost died, I suffered osteocrenosis of my left knee, femoral neuropathy in my left leg and that he was the one that found me unresponsive and feels somewhat responsible. Needless to say I was very dependent on him....

Advice Regarding Depression Treatment

Well, I must admit that I’m somewhat embarrassed about posting here for help. I find myself in a difficult position and would appreciate some advice. I guess you could say that I’ve suffered from a few symptoms related to depression for over the past three years. I’ve experienced memory loss, fatigue and headaches from a series of near-obsessive, negative thoughts about my self-image. My behavior has increasingly become more erratic, and I find it...
