Hi,

I came across this website this evening and joined as I have realised I have a few long term issues that are affecting my life and I need help to move forward in my life!

Hello

I have just joined sane online but have supported it before but never used the support myself. I have bpd and suffer from panic attacks, anxiety and have trouble sleeping. I was on a downward spiral with my illness that i lost my job. Whicb has set me back socially and mentally. I did try and get help, cbt ect but psych team said i had therapy about 3 years ago when diagnosed so i wouldn't get it again. So i thought i would see if talking to people on here would help better than just struggling.

Thank you for welcoming me to the family

Hello sailorastrid

Welcome back to the forum. I hope you find it helpful.

Maybe try and start a post of your own as yours might get a bit missed on
this one.

It can be difficult getting the help these days so I'm pleased you have reached out and not just struggled yourself.

Take care. Chris

Hi there. I joined this forum, because I feel like I am in the biggest slump since my breakdown 3 and a half years ago, and I am trying anything to make sure I don't go there again and to find new coping strategies for depression and hopefully help others too.

Hello, I joined because I don't what's wrong with me and I'm scared of what's going to happen. I can't get help, I can't explain why because I'm not sure I even know. There is so much in my head and it won't stop I can't breathe. It's not new, it's always been with me but for the last 36 months I have struggled to mask it and now I am making decisions that are seriously impacting my life and the lives of those who depend on me, I know I need help, I know I've never been normal but I've left it too late, they can't help me and even if I could face asking for help then I will lose the only things in my life that make me wake up in the morning. I just want it all to stop!

Hi Emma

You actually posted in a bad place because nobody ever reads this thread, although not your fault.

To answer your concern, its never too late to get help. Get an appt with your GP there is good medication which will sort you out.

Let us know how you get on. Also, repost your original as a new introduction on Newbies section so that you get more replies.

Isap x

just joined x spoke to sane on the telephone, thought they were wonderful which led me to trying a forum x I have been hospitalised for physchosis almost once a year for the past 12 years xxx 6 months ago I doubled my anti-physchotics so I was on the maximum dose x I haven't been hospitalised yet this year x until speaking to sane I hadn't realised just how long I have been scared of the physchosis happening again x

I was so unused to this new feeling that I didn't realise what was going on x I was ready to burn bridges and throw away all I had recently built up x until I spoke to sane and they helped me to recognise that I'm relieved x funny x I felt so silly x but it helps to talk ;) thank you

Hi Just wanted to say hello after discovering this site and joining tonight. I am 50 something female dealing with depression only really starting to come to grips with my new realty after many unexplained 'episodes' since my 20's that have completely undermined me. Its been a long journey to get here. Recently found out have emotional disregulation which goes some way to helping me understand and accept myself when it seems like no-one else does, Has taken me a long time to accept that I have a mental health issue but now that I have I am starting to make some sense of my roller coaster life.
