Like for example;

Roll Call 198

All I needed was this... It's not difficult, Idk why people found it so hard to understand what I was asking for..

And I want to keep myself in tune with;
13 Approval seeking behaviours you need to stop - liveyourtruestory.com

The way I've been interacting with people, it seemed all fine (But people in high school - I think they really judged me. And all they cared about was whether I was gay or not - Even though being severely depressed with AvPD, and eventually psychosis). If only I talked to people instead of being so "quiet", although I didn't even want to be there.

I was so stressed out (From so much homework in Ireland, learning 3 different languages etc), and moved to the middle of no where, where no one cared what I did.. I was given the permission to go completely nuts..

But w/e, I'll stop talking for now..

I think you're doing a great job with continuing to make goals for yourself. Meditation is really helpful. I read somewhere that usually you notice the most benefits 8 weeks of daily practice. But obviously there's immediate benefits from it too, I've kind of slacked off on it recently but will get back to it. It's great to help with focus too.

I hope you're able to find a good app, the one I use is pretty simplistic but it has helped me. There are a lot of good apps out there though

You don't have to stop talking if you feel like posting. I'm always here to listen and give support when Im able to. As for the video chat people that is very traumatizing. When I was 13 years old I was on a forum and people could anonymously leave private messages. Someone kept sending me messages harassing me literally telling me to kill myself, to commit suicide, over and over. I ended up attempting suicide at 14. That wasn't the only reason, I was already struggling mentally and with my environment. But I told the mods and they did nothing about it. It really hurt a lot. Some people are just cruel and I'm sorry you had to deal with that

But anyway, I think creating goals is great. It's always good to have something to strive for in various areas of our lives, just take your time and you will get there

Also it's completely okay to not have goals for awhile as well, if you need a break or are content/happy with things in your life

I'm so sorry BB.. That happened to me as well. I went onto a depression chat, and the owner (Out of all people) would leave a message (Every time I entered), "Gay and autistic - Kill yourself" (In all caps), and I kept going in (Because I thought that it wouldn't bother me - And that I was stronger than that), but it happened like 100 times - To the point of it being disturbing. I was 16.. Around that time, I attempted too.

But thx for the supportive words ^-

I feel like I ate too much. But I know its not bad. Ugh Im just so torn in my mind.

I ate some meatballs with marinara, then a bowl of taco dip with chips.

I feel so full and I hate it.

I ate a burger and 1/2 a bowl of sweet potato fries last night.

Now this. I still have to eat dinner.

I just dont know.

Edit:

Posted from somewhere else I was posting in:

Like again its not even about losing weight anymore. I havent lost weight lately. Im stuck. And I just dont want to eat and then I eat and I hate it and then I try to convince myself its okay because my doctor and family would be happy that I ate. Then I eat one meal a day next thing you know.

The prior authorization for my crown replacement was approved. The one being redone is 7 years old and according to my dentist needs to be replaced/ recemented. They called me and left a voicemail telling me to schedule an appointment since it was approved, so I called and left a message saying I was ready to set up an appointment. Now I'm waiting on them to call back.

Also got a foodstamp recertification thing I had to fill out. I still qualify but it still makes me nervous, I have a phone interview with them on the 23rd of March. Have to mail out the recertification paperwork filled out back to them first.

What is even wrong with me? Depression?

I thought I had/was diagnosed with OCD, and then told I have/was diagnosed with schizophrenia...

But I have a low mood disorder.. and have been hypomanic. I have trauma. And dissociation from drugs. I respond well to stimulants.

I'm very aloof IRL.

Anyways, I hope you're all having a good day =]

Hey everyone sorry for the hiatus. I am doing fine. Just realizing that Abilify is not for me. So I am going to stop taking it and revert back to the meds my U.S. psychiatrist had me on. Anyway, it's not like I'm not following a pdoc's advice, just reverting back to what my doc in the U.S. wanted me on anyway. So that's that. Anyway. I need some support around that. It's been really hard lately (stress). (Stress) is destroying me it feels.

Got to figure out what to eat for dinner tonight. Ugh. Eating has been a struggle for me lately. Just figuring it out is exhausting. I sometimes just have oatmeal or yogurt for dinner.

The only thing I really look forward to right now is a cup of black coffee that I'll make myself tonight. I don't know why it seems so exciting. Maybe just to get rid of some of the anhedonia?

Sorry for the excess of posts, but I also was going to do this mindfulness diploma thing at my university down here. Turns out the director wanted to talk to my psychiatrist to make sure I was like fit to do it, you know? I still haven't heard from the director even though we talked like two weeks ago. It is just silly, I feel like giving up on the whole thing. They're literally making me feel worse about myself by acting like I wouldn't be able to handle it.

Hugs WA.meds are rough but staying on a particular med that works is for the best.
