I always isolate instead of committing myself even when I should definitely be committed. I'm amazed that I'm not dead. Also has anyone else failed to get a solid diagnosis? Every doctor I've seen had a different opinion (bipolar II, BPD, PTSD+OCD, PTSD+BPD) so it feels pointless to join support groups for specific disorders because I simply don't know. It certainly is much more than mere depression. A bit depressed today because I just learned that an old friend (who had type 1 bipolar) died last year.

Anyone else have a mental illness induced bad quarantine haircut? I do! I look terrible!



Oh dear, I'm sorry to hear about your suicide attempt (I've been in similar predicaments over the past couple years) but I'm glad you've found a good support group. (NOT having any friends with the same mental illness is terrible. It's so much easier to explain oneself when you do. It's a nightmare otherwise-- after an episode or something, I mean.)
I would recommend looking into a PHP or IOP program instead, inpatient only offers generalized group therapy and they really don’t talk to you one on one at all. And right? It really helps to be able to vent back and forth lol

And Chio, I agree with Lisna that any kind of support group is probably better than nothing. The people there will understand your issues better than people not struggling with mental health, I think
Thank you

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

I think I’m about as Dixie as any mf in this madhouse. Even down here there’s good folks. Kind people who at least want to help. That’s a hardcore question but if you’re at that level for God’s sake don’t hurt yourself. Reach out for help. Like for me, and I’m not equating anything but for me just changing to the community health folks and getting a new primary physician - just that fact that I can see she cares - it helps

That one right person can save your life.

That’s my take.

Glad you're still alive Tristan.

The hundred dollar a 5 minute talk over the phone psychiatrist is going to force me to talk to an even more expensive therapist because it's "part of the program". I feel like I'm being robbed at gun point. Except that's happened to me before and I feel more helpless in this situation than that situation.

Lucem, you're right, it's silly to talk about what I would or wouldn't do IRL. Glad you brought it up. Maybe you should write an instrumental about it. I recommend a piano paired with a clarinet. With ambient sounds of you hanging from your shower curtain you ****ing failure.

Art Is Dead. Buy My ****.

Glad I'm alive still, I have projects to finish. My first vinyl single is coming out soon with my friend Connor and I'm working on a compilation record for my label.
I'm happy you're still with us, man. Send me a link to that single when you get a chance.

Same boat. I've had some great therapists and psychiatrists, but I've been diagnosed with at least 4 different things over the course of my life in order to find out what my deal was. I've definitely mellowed out, and I couldn't tell you what I had/have, but the general consensus between my doctors right now is that I most likely have a combination of chronic depression and anxiety.

Do you mind if I ask about how old you are because aging seems to make me crazier

29. Puberty happened and hormones made me less crazy, or at least that's what my doctors thought.
