Hi everyone,

I wish I could read and reply to everyone but I can't. I'm new here but I was on a different mental health forum for a while.

Hi Gareth! I hope you were drinking decaf because caffeine can be bad for anxiety, I think. Don't worry about going to a café on your own. I actually do that a lot.

Hi swimmingintherain. I'm really sorry that you're lonely. You're not alone, ironically, it's a big problem in society nowadays, loneliness. I can only say that you could try and join in with things like going to a book group or something, and hopefully that might lead to making new friends although it might take time. Maybe sign up for a course at a local college, in the evening. Online courses are no good socially, nor is the Open University, although some people do enjoy those things, I don't.

I've been thinking about radios. It seems when I stop taking my meds, the radio starts to get really weird. Sometimes I just get static, and sometimes the conversations on the radio get really weird.

Anyway I'm going to look for an appropriate place for me to join on here. Thanks for reading!

Hi everyone.
It's good to read other people's experiences it somehow makes me feel comforted i suppose in a strange way.
I am a newbie, I am also fairly new to mh problems,I am suffering with ptsd and gad.every morning at 7am when I wake up I have a panic attack I cry through out the day and hide in the house,I feel so lonely and pathetic,but mostly I feel fear which is all consuming.i feel there is no light at the end of the tunnel and I'm a burden to my family.i find it very difficult to talk about my problems,I am hoping that this will help.

Hello everyone,

I haven't been diagnosed but I think I might be depressed. It got to the point where I asked my GP to refer me to a counselor. She asked me a few questions about how I was feeling and decided it would be appropriate. I didn't get the call from the counselor until about 3 weeks later, and at that point I thought I was feeling better so I decided not to book an appointment.

Anyway, I joined up because I think it might help to talk about it.

Thanks for reading.

Hi All,
I am Kitty Pae from Philadelphia USA. I just recently joined this year (2018) and am incredibly amazed by the support and information that this forum has to offer for us.

I had no idea that this forum was available since year 2008! It's incredible to see this and I feel more accepting of my mental health and disability. I used to feel alone and it was difficult for me to talk about it. So, I am on here to support others as I continue my journey to be confident in supporting myself and who I am - accepting that it's alright to be different, and maybe also be understanding of why (or why I am not) like others, and remain faithful to myself.

Thanks for reading.

Kindest Regards,
Kitty Pae
