  1. I'm afraid of noises to the point where my heart starts racing, most times, a random noise startles me/gives me a fright and my heart starts racing. I jump like when something scares you and this happens often. Another noise can cause the same reaction. I feel afraid, scared of moving, even. I can describe the sensation to feeling as though I'm about to get beaten up. I don't know if anyone's parents beat them up growing up, but a similar sensation to that, basically feeling scared/afraid. Can anyone relate? If so, how do you cope?

    Seasonal Affective Disorder

    Something I've been thinking over the past few years is that I probably have Seasonal Affective Disorder. I've suspected that I have it for a long time, but I'm absolutely sure of it now. Over the past few days, there have been a few more brief spells of sunshine, and although I'm very unhappy most of the time, my mood almost instantly improved during these short times, and decreased as soon as they ended. My depression is mostly a result of my circumstances, but there are days when I feel okay or even truly happy in Spring and Summer. At the moment, the way in which SAD affects me is that I don't feel worse than I normally would every day because I already feel awful most of the time, but on days when I know I would be feeling better during Spring and Summer, I do not. In the past (before I became severely depressed) it has affected me in more of a stereotypical way though (i.e. suddenly feeling bad for no apparent reason halfway through Winter). I know other members here deal with this too, so does anyone have any advice on how to deal with Seasonal Affective Disorder?
  3. ....That's it. That's all. Material gifts or even cold hard cash are meaningless to me, unless I can have that. Everyone's asking me what I want for Christmas now (as if I didn't have enough to worry about) but if I told them, they wouldn't be able to get it for me anyhow. I just want everyone to be happy, and I feel as if the only way that can happen is if I either get "all fixed," or if I'm just not here anymore. My therapist isn't here anymore, and my psychiatrist never cared about me....she just heaps empty praise on me so I'll be okay with her pumping me full of the drugs that aren't even working anymore and just give me horrible NC-17-rated nightmares. I wear a DNR wristband all the time now...it's like another one of my comfort items. So yeah, that's all I want for Christmas, and all I wanted last year, and the year before; is to just be normal. But I know it won't happen.

    Help :(

    I’m not going to go into this much but things have gone bad for me recently. Culmination of things, you know. I’ve had some counselling but it’s not worked. I’ve been offered Zoloft but I’m very scared about taking these meds. I’ve had some dark thoughts that have gotten worse recently. I’m sick of being scared, anxious and down all the time. I’ve thought about killing myself quite a lot. Thing is, I don’t want to die really, I don’t think so, if I did do something it would be a cry for help. No one in my family is taking my condition seriously. I do want to do something so the people around me notice and take me seriously. I’ve tried talking to them but it’s difficult and nothing changes afterwards anyway. I don’t know what I should do to make a ‘mark’ on the people around me, know what I mean?
  5. So, I need some advice. My niece is six years old and I'm pretty certain she is on the spectrum. She also has difficulty listening to people and staying focused (possibly ADD?). My sister has taken her to the doctors one before and her case was referred to CAMHS but the case got rejected. She approached her school and is supposed to be receiving emotional literacy support(?) but nothing has really come from that. My sister has gone back to her GP a couple of times and is awaiting a call from them regarding help for her. I really would like to do something for my niece, as I feel I understand her more than anyone else. My sister often tells me that my niece reminds her of me so much. We share very similar traits. I'm also undergoing assessment regarding Aspergers. Due to her lack of concentration, it's really hard to talk to her, she also can't write well, so asking her to write down her feelings is out of the question. I managed to get some information from her today at a family party after a meltdown regarding another family member and my nieces small teddy bear - she told me she doesn't like people touching her things (I also get like this) and being with lots of people is sometimes 'scary' and makes her upset - which I interpreted as she gets 'overwhelmed' (totally get like this too). My sister said she is easily bored but absolutely loves crafts and it's the only thing that keeps her focused. She also doesn't talk sometimes and communicates by pointing and the 'thumbs up/down' hand gesture. She also 'takes' things from school like small plastic gems and the plastic blocks they use for counting which she has got in to trouble for. I was just wondering if anyone could offer any advice on how I can help her? Is there any other way I can get her to share her feelings? I just feel so helpless, like there is nothing I can do for her. It's heartbreaking because she is such a polite little girl and is so grateful for everything yet she thinks that no one loves her. It's almost like she feels not good enough. I can't afford to take her to any classes and neither can her mother, but I just want to do something to help her as I feel I understand her so well, yet I also feel like there is nothing I can do.

    I wish i wasn't anxious

    I don't really know where to write it, but it seems like the right place. Many times i feel like i'm afraid of almost everything. I haven't feel like that for a while, but now those thoughts are back. I feel so hopeless. Like there's no future for me. I will probably end up pretty bad after i'm finish with studying. I also worry about everything every day. I'm scared that i will not make it throught the day. I really, really hate it and i wish i could stop feeling this way. Can't sleep at night because i have too many bad thought and i'm so afraid. Especially when i'm alone. I'm really glad that i get a support from my boyfriend, but i still feel like shit. And i'm tired of listening to those who tell me that i have no reasons to worry about anything. They just can't understand it.
