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...

i must be really stressing out i found a grey hair and im only 18 this makes me worried even more.
i have the strongest urge to cut myself
Ok my mother and sister knows i cut its scary i dont know what todo with them knowing and every one is directing me to samaritans like i am a risk to myself why do i feel so scared
Firstly, sorry for posting here when I've not been much use to any one else of this site. I just feel incredibly unmotivated at the moment. I've stopped working for a while to try and focus on "fixing myself", I've started applying to courses (well a course) and have applied to do some volunteer work but I need to wait until I get the all clear for that.
Yet even though I'm doing all of these...
So I have clinical depression and I was on antidepressants for a while...well...I was meant to be but they made me feel weird...I didn't feel like ME so I stopped taking them and threw away my prescription because taking them and being labelled as depressed made me feel crazy...taking drugs to keep you sane? It didn't feel like I was sane with them and I was happier thinking I was normal. Anyway...
Hi everyone, I'm Cat, age 23, from Edinburgh.
I was wondering if anyone could help me? I have just been to my doctor due to feeling depressed and having strong anxiety and stress lately due to my partners drinking problems (which he is now getting help for). I also explained to my doctor about my history of anxiety and self-harm and how this is now greatly affecting my ability to get on with...
I was happy yesterday, until my mum told me (more or less) that I was inferior to my brother. Even today I am hurt/offended, but then if I discuss it she will deny it and make excuses and not suck it up and take responsibility for her actions.
does this happen to anybody else, and should I essentially cut ties with my family since they're just out to get me?
I have lost so many friends and partners to my disorder.
I hear voices and they are NOT AT ALL kind.
I want this to end. I hate it. I'm sick of blacking out and waking up the next day to find that I've been destroying the room, biting, scratching, punching, etc.
The voices that I hear control absolutely everything I do. I am an emotional wreck. I can go from bright and...
So I am being referred to services for an Aspergers diagnosis. This may take a few months, but I am going along because I think it'll explain a lot with some social things that are difficult for me.
I was wondering if anybody else has been through this as an adult and what to expect?
I am born and raised a female (though have a genderless identity), so I can imagine I have more female...
I got offered a psychological assessment in January to assess my needs by a therapist in the CMHT. Now this is only a assessment I've had lots before but in other types of services I have accessed. Never for psychology not properly. but what can you expect from one? I'm not even sure I have the courage to say what I want which is that I am struggling each day and need someone to help me. All I...
Any experts on diabetes here? Or at least people familiar with the disease / have (a relative with) this disease?
My mother was diagnosed with diabetes type 2 last week. Apparently her blood sugar levels were sky high and mortally dangerous. As far as I've read about diabetes that could mean that I am next in line (as diabetes is usually inherited - runs in the family).
Due to recent events, I have started to view my life differently, to live a little for myself. I've pretty much packed in the beer and don't really feel like drinking much or taking drugs, I am learning more about my health and starting to crave the great outdoors...
I discovered today I am 12 stone 5 pounds... 2 stone 4 pounds out of my healthy BMI and two stone heavier than I would like to...
Ive just found out that im not wanted and inm not worth any thing anymore my friend dislikes me and needs space im always the problem its always me that causes pain to others and makes people hate me perhaps i shouldnt be alive!!!!!:crying:
Since my stoke I am paranoid every time I get a headache but I really hate doctors and hospitals with anything to do with it. With both my strokes the headache was in the same place which was on my right side just above my forehead and along with it I felt really sick and unwell.
This morning I have woken up with a really sharp pain at the back of my head on my left side almost where my neck...
why is it that pills hardly work and you tend not to take them well i sort of take mine but whats the point i cant think properly when i take them and the thoughts of dieing can get really bad. my family dont know but my mum has just found out that i cut and i didnt even tell her the last time she found out the next days after she was saying was i alright all the time how can i get over knowing...
i have been going through a really tough time and i dont know what todo sometimes i think that cutting is the answer and other i just think maybe i dont deserve to live im loosing all my friends and the only person i have a great friendship with he wants time away from me my depression is getting worse and the antidepressants arent working im to scared to go to the gp got any ideas:crying:
I live in an undeveloped area. I have a cat. It has scratched me. I am afraid about rabis. I know that the cat has to be checked for 10 days. What symptoms should I look for?
I had been scratched 1.5 months ago and 2 weeks ago. recently I had discontinuing head ache, little pain in muscles, temporary high temperatures, chills, and digestion problems. Now, are These the early symptoms of...
So basically, I see CAMHS every 2-3 weeks and that means that I have to catch a bus, for an hour long journey, have my session then catch the bus home (another hour long journey)
The problem is, I HATE buses, I can't stand having to take them in the first place, they're always late (it didn't even turn up today) and you're left out in all kinds of weather waiting for them (I keep getting stuck...
Did anyone watch this programme (I think it was on last night) on bbc3 ? :)
Sorry if someone has already posted about it, I couldn't find one though
I'm currently two days out of hospital after swallowing a large amount of paraceptamol.
I still feel ill and awful.
When I talked to the lady who tested my mental health she asked if I still wanted to die, I said yes.
The next day I was released from hospital after being told I was mentally and physically sound.
I have a strong feeling of suicide left in me and still want to die so badly, all...
I'm not good at writing things like this but I guess it would be to give it a go
I've been feeling very stuck with myself lately
My mental health hasn't been the best and I have been faced with a lot of bad thought and a lot of self harming :( I wrecked a good 6 weeks of not doing it by doing it again
all over the fact that people don't care
People don't support me
Hi, I am new to this forum and people seem to be receiving a lot of advice so I decided to make an account and maybe someone can help me.
I am a sufferer of mental health, I have Borderline Personality Disorder, depression, panic disorder, anxiety and an eating disorder. Quite a lot I know. I have been suffering for about 8 years but as I have become older things have become a lot worse and...
I'm coming up to 30 and quite confused as to what I want from life?
I'm single (through choice and have never been happier after a very violent and messy relationship and lots of off and on silly ones, much easier to be in my own little world), got a good set of friends around me, a pretty good job too (I work in Higher Education, it's nights - it's 4 on, 4 off but I also get all the term...
my name's cameron and I'm 16 years old.
I come to you with a major problem in my life; anxiety. To my knowledge my anxiety problems started when I was in 6th grade, when I experienced my first panic attack.
Since then my anxiety has seemed to come and go, without any real explanation as to why. I can go months, and even whole years, at a time without feeling any anxiety,...
