Because eating is never cheating

Hey there :wave:
I've just updated this thread so that we can use it as a place to add more playlists :thumb:
First off, we were inspired by the mental health charity Sane who have been running a campaign in partnership with Spotify - it's all about how music can lift your mood :)
Sometimes sad songs with lyrics we can relate to, or that reflect our mood can cheer us...
Here at TheSite.org we have a commitment to looking out for those who are affected by self-harm - whether you're harming yourself or know someone else who is harming themselves. Members of our community and TheSite Leaders have come to an agreement about how you can use our message boards and live chat to get help, while considering the feelings of others who are reading and responding.
This is the guide to the health board of TheSite.org, but don't forget the registration rules you agreed to when signing up.
The Health Board
Using these boards to post spam, advertise any or product or to ask for help with projects, surveys or any other activity is not permitted without first obtaining permission from either email@example.com.
Please note we have a few rules:
i'll post the scale i use on other sites and you can just reply telling me how you all are doing relating to the scale
1 - Horrible, the worst, hopeless, not functioning, extremely
depressed; Hospitalization needed
2- Not much better, barely functioning, very depressed;
Wondering "What's the point?"
3- Low level functioning, still so depressed
so this is for anyone on here with mental illness (i figured i'd start a pole and see how you all go about it)
if someone asks you (someone that understands) a question about your MI, how do you respond?
anser the pole..
So I braved my appointment with the Psychiatrist, but he told me I had a personality disorder. Although I can't figure out how, or why I have it, and still can't make sense of it.
Has anyone else been diagnosed with this? Or had experiences with it? How did you accept and handle it?
I'm not happy with the psychiatrist I see on the early intervention in psychosis team, for various reasons that I won't put here for confidentiality reasons, and I tried to change to the other one but that person has a full case load... I don't know what to do. :(
I am Bethany, I'm 16, and addicted to self harm. I've been self harming since I was 13. I really would love to stop self harming but I can't do it on my own. I have told one person and it didn't turnout well. I don't know where to go to get help.. can anybody help me? I want to get better. :(
Hey folks :)
I have just been discussing my mental health in chat, and how it has had a big effect on my relationship with my mum and family. I thought I would start a thread on here about it, and hopefully receive some advice, and maybe see if anybody else has or is going through anything similar.
So I don't have a very good relationship with my mum anymore, things took are bad turn in...
I'm on microgynon 30. iv missed around 5 pills this month (I know, I'm rubbish?!) when I missed the pills I didn't take them late or anything, just left them in the packet. I'm on my 7 day break about to start my pill again tomorrow and I haven't had a period which is really weird for me. I took a pregnancy test earlier today that was negative. should I just start taking the pill again like...
Weirdly it's taken me until close to my 27th birthday to work out that the above two words are the reason I am so alone, the reason i struggle to make friends, the reason i tend to lose the friends i do manage to get, and the reason i am still a virgin.
I always thought i was just really introverted/private and that eventually things would happen for me, but now i realise it's a big problem...
Well basically.. I got referred to CAMHS a few weeks ago, and today I went back to the doctors, and within being in there for like 5 minutes.. He's put me on Anti Depressants, I have no clue how i should feel about this, I dunno, not sure if it's sunk in... but yeah.. I dunnoo... :confused:
i iam still got the same tintums now iam on it puts in more pain. i fed up being ill and i dont know what to do now i tryed lods of things :( i just want it all to go away
Got admitted to hospital yesterday with suspected meningitis because i had a massive fever, vomiting (which had been going on since wed) and bad head neck and eyes. Turned out not to be, thankfully, but I'm still waiting for other test results, though they let me go home today.
Now I've been asleep almost all day so I'm trying to be awake a bit so I can sleep at night. I feel hideous, and i...
i am so angry at what the discharge papers say from my most recent sectioning, i'm really pissed off with so many things about the mental health team, and i'm really fucking scared that they are going to section me again, seriously seriously scared. i cannot go into hospital again, if they try and make me i am going to run away, and if need be, kill myself, but i hope it doesn't come to that...
firstly i need to appologise to you that have contacted me. i've bee away from thesite because i could have died.
I had emergency surgery for a perforated appendictus. I didnt go to hospital when i should as i thought they'd think i was making it up because of my self-harm. in the end i went with my support worker and they thought it was minor. The A&E dr said that she could take bloods but it...
Suicide cross my mind sometimes, it's like my mind is pointing to that direction. it's like s/h isn't good enough.
Don't know what to do anymore :crying: i am really fed up.:(
So for months I was itching and the doctor told me It was bed bugs for months,(i asked everytime,I visited was it scabies) So I moved out of where I was living, throw away all my bedding washed everything on a high heat and dried everything in dryer etc
only for two weeks later my boyfriend was told it was scabies.
We found this out about a week before christmas, we have applied the cream at...
as the title suggests, i want to know if i can get something like 5-htp on prescription so i don't have to pay (i'm disabled and on benefits), instead of being on antidepressants...
does anyone know if this is possible?
also if anyone knows of any natural remedy that can alleviate psychosis/anger, please tell me, especially any success stories.
Does anyone experienced burns?
I did burn my arm today with a sigaret while i was smoking, i don't really smoke but sometimes i do it when i feel down. And today i burnt my arm.
I'm used to cutting but i guess it wasn't good enough to deal with myself :((:no:
So yesterday was a crappy day! Like, seriously crappy.
I was blogging about how well I've done, that I haven't self-harmed since November, blahdy blahdy blah. Then last night I did -.- how annoying?
I guess it's because I saw the scales at a higher number, so I lashed out, shouting all sort of abuse to myself. To realise later on, I was wearing a gazillion layers. I'm terrified of putting...
I use the gym when I can because I want to keep healthy as exercise certain times of the week is important. I also suffer from an eating disorder so I know that keeping away from the gym is important to make sure I don't over do it. I also have the Menopause which is something I developed at the age of 16. I've had
Lots of trips to hospitals and had medication but nothing seems to...
Okay it seems that everytime I Google my sleeping symtoms I get narcolepsy as the results. This link sounds like lot like me http://ask.metafilter.com/175207/Disabled-Sleeper-Seeks-Advice .
Okay I'll go through exactly what happens. I can sleep at 8pm and wake up at 1pm and I can wake up to an alarm clock once then the night after I sleep right through it. I've tried changing the wake up tune...
Hi, thank you for taking the time to read this and i'd really appreciate anyones advice.
My brother is currently volunteering in another country for the year, he has just found out his girlfriend has been cheating on him. He's devestated and i fear he may have been depressed for a while but now he's in a bad state. He's had panic attacks today, not been eating and hasn't been able to sleep....
I got absolutely wrecked last night (predictable) and sobbed my way into new year. All I could think about was how I should have been spending new year- as a mummy with my little girl. I miss her so much, my aches ache because I just want to hold her. I know that I should think about the good times, but the final image of her fighting for her life, and losing, wired up to machines, doctors...
