From the blog, Surviving Life
  “Hope” is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul And sings the tune without the words And never stops at all … -Emily Dickinson Hope.  A short four letter word filled with potential and promise.  Yet I struggle every day to feel and possess that optimistic emotion so elusive to me… I fight the demons that so many of us fight:  The moment-to-moment battle that occurs in your mind against depression, despair, and loneliness. ...

Yet Another I-Should-Really-Be-Sleeping Moment

From the blog, Finding The Missing Pieces
So I haven't been functioning well recently. Between my family being jerks (silence your cellphones, turn off your iPhones, and silence your pagers, because the latest film installment of Brain Wars is about to begin! * Kidding aside, it sucks), my memory playing tricks on me, and me getting headaches (plus my sense of self taking a beating from my family. **), I'm not doing well. And I'm realizing something...I think ... Read more »


Abyss (16/04/13)

From the blog, The Shadow's Voice
Ugh, out of the fire and into the frying pan. Yes I used the metaphor backwards, it went from really bad to bad. >_> Still not any good though. I won't try to draw on and on with it, but it's been a sucky day overall. My laundry, thanks to that escapade last week, has piled up due to everyone else's being done, when at the start of the week ... Read more »


Mania on Vacation

From the blog, Child of the Universe
I'm in between jobs at the moment. I quit a job at a fast food restaurant because of the horrible, horrible conditions and the brutal way the staff treated me, and found another job three days later as a housekeeper at a senior living facility...SCORE! The job doesn't start immediately. I've been told that it can take up to three weeks to have my application processed (which took me over ... Read more »


Overcoming my past to ensure a better future!

From the blog, Bittersweet Heartsongs
So, yeah. If you've been following my posts on the forums at Psych Central, you've no doubt read about my delving into the dating scene again. I was constantly asking myself what I was missing from my past relationships, why intimacy felt more so like I was just going through the motions just to reach some form of self satisfaction, rather than the anything meaningful or deep. Somebody was kind enough to enlighten me that I lacked ... Read more »


Blog #1: Hello!

From the blog, Hikari
Hi, this is ant0531 (ant for short), and welcome to my blog. On this blog, I will write and blog about some things that interest me, how I am doing, and just some of my own opinions. And may the randomness begin. :3 :) ... Read more »


Watching Netflix

From the blog, Fighting The Storm
Tuesday, one of my three days off. I would only have two, but they don't have mandatory overtime yet so I've been having three. Anyway, besides the point. I'm watching Nurse Jackie on Netflix, because I recently finished watching Leverage and I wanted to put some space in before watching one of my other favorite shows again. So I'm watching Nurse Jackie, not sure how I feel about it yet, ... Read more »


Shouting at the Wind

From the blog, Shouting At The Wind
Welcome to "Shouting At The Wind" - a weekly(ish) blog dedicated to addressing the day to day struggles faced by people with mental disorders. My name is Kevin Medeiros. I am not a psychologist, though I have a Bachelor's Degree in psychology. I do, however, have a family fraught with various different mantel disorders. I have learned over the years the strife of coping with Autism, Bipolar disorder, OCD, schizophrenia ... Read more »


Waking up crying

From the blog, My Bleeding Heart
I wake up crying because i dont want to live yet another day. it sickens me. not because of what i have or dont have to do. just because i have to be alive yet another day. and the more i cry every day, the less i want to live. i'll never get out of this loop. i just want to die ... Read more »


Today's Church isn't working for many

From the blog, A Blog of Thinking Allowed
It's a sad day when one realizes there just isn't a church to go to for worshipping God ... and dare I add "like we used to"?   I realize that when the baby boomers began to attend church as adults, they began to change some things.   The parents had dutifully taken their entire families to church for the weekly morning Bible Study and worship service and baby boomers continued this ...

Born on January 4, 2016

From the blog, impressions
I feel like Beth is back. I woke up this morning and she was there in my head and heart after what seems like a lifetime. I mean, I went with Missy for our walk and it's one of those gorgeous sunny days, but cold....a true gift here in Florida, no brutal heat beating down....and thoughts just flowed naturally. The vivid colors and beauty of the trees and grass and ... Read more »


When a loved one becomes Toxic

From the blog, kymaro
I've always knew my loved one was difficult to be around, she always would say "people with Bi-Polar are just acting out, jealous because they don't receive attention and need a good spanking". It didn't matter how much I attempted to talk to her and educate her. Leaving pamphlets and education print-outs, but with little hope, it always ended up in the trash unread. Sometimes before I could even leave ... Read more »



Many meds

From the blog, Bipolar Maturity
I saw a post in a forum today where someone was complaining about having to take five medications every day. FIVE! I was laughing because I take more than twice that, and have for years. Not only am I bipolar, but I have high blood pressure, and diabetes, and adult growth hormone deficiency. Taking this many pills requires commitment and organization. I sort pills into ...

Mental Illness Doesn't Discriminate (Or Does It?)

From the blog, Lost in the Supermarket
A while back I started attending my local Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) support group. It has really helped me to talk to "real" people who understand firsthand what it is like to struggle with mental illness. I find the diversity of the attendees interesting. While we are mostly white (I live in a mostly white area), we come from all backgrounds and income brackets. Some are in the depths of ... Read more »
