Re: Social Anxiety.... Advice please!

Re: Social Anxiety.... Advice please!

Hi Em, I totally get what you are saying about the 'mental health' feel. See how you feel when you visit next week. It is such a shame that you have found the ED team to be so crap. But do remember it isn't anything against you as a person- it isn't that they don't care about you- just the system an...

Re: Meds to stop racing mind

Thanks Guys- helpful as ever! Funny enough i wrote out a mind map yesterday just detailing all of my thoughts and concerns about my MH. Yes it was helpful. I also thought that it would be a good way to document my journey. To be honest it isn't interrupting my sleep too much it is just really annoyi...
