Re: Hello im new here

Hi Melanie, welcome to the forum! I used to have a lot of panic attacks but it got a lot better once I knew more about what it was and how to stop them early. I still experience anxiety but the panic attacks have pretty much gone away. How are you doing? Are you seeing a dr or mental health professi...

Re: Foreboding

Hi Chris, I'm very sorry for your loss. Grief has a way of making us see death everywhere and feeling like loss is inevitable. Particularly if you are already a perceptive person as you say, it's easy to see everything through that lens. Death is also something that can be very taboo to talk about w...

Re: Just come back from docs

Hi gemclare, I agree with andthistoomustpass. Unless you are having some negative side effects then I wouldn't worry about rushing to reduce your dosage. It may seem like a long time but 8ish months isn't that long for SSRI's. I think there's often a pressure (maybe from stigma around mental health ...

Re: Hello! Grateful for some pointers

Re: Not sure what to think

Hi Pati, Welcome to the forum! I think this part of what you've said really stands out to me, "He said he still has love for me and he is still looking out for me despite not wanting to be with me.I am not sure whether I should carry on fighting for us to be together or whether he is actually b...

Re: between two minds

Hi again, Good for you! "In the first meeting, I did say to her something along the lines of 'do I really need to get in to that?' (when she asked a very specific question) and she replied something like 'if you don't, I'm not going to know how much you are suffering'. I've felt obliged since b...

Re: Don't know what to do

Hello notagain, Welcome to the forum! I hope letting that all out helped. I'm almost too intimidated to reply (I don't want to say something silly or shallow) because it sounds like you are going through a lot of incredibly difficult experiences and I can only imagine how overwhelming that must be s...

Re: between two minds

Hi PureFrustr8d I'm a lot newer to forums than you but I totally get it. I've felt really comforted coming here and speaking to different people. But also obviously unavoidable triggers. I don't really know how to balance that, but I'm trying to come to this forum before my mood gets too bad - so I'...
