    Taking pain relief to deal with mental illness

    Hi all, I was diagnosed with PTSD (as well as agoraphobia, depression and anxiety) over 5 years ago after leaving a violent and controlling relationship (I am a male and this was a same sex relationship. The reason I am advising of this will become pertinent later in my post). Whilst I have a...

    Fears about Coronavirus

    Thank you everyone for your responses. As I’ve said, I’m not concerned at the virus per se, I’ve been at peace with my own mortality for a long time now. However my Mother falls into the at risk category, with her suffering autoimmune diseases so if she was to catch the virus, it is highly...

    Fears about Coronavirus

    I don’t think you’re being irrational especially with how poorly our governments are reacting to the outbreak. It doesn’t instill much confidence.

    Hey all, I’m guessing I am not alone in this and others are feeling the same, but I am really struggling with the current Coronavirus pandemic. I am not really concerned about the virus myself but the whole uncertainty of it is causing me tremendous anxiety. Not knowing if I will be able to...

    My grandmother, my only real source of emotional support and the only person that seemingly understood my diagnosis, passed away just over a month ago.

    My Grandmother has periods of cognisance so I have tried to tell her certain things but this is quickly forgotten and she often makes statements that contradict her previous statements that leave me even more confused than I did before. The hardest thing for me is that it would be my...

    Death Updated - Cannot come to terms with grandmothers terminal cancer diagnosis. Cut ties or be institutionalized?

    She has recently been sent home to die but I was unable to visit her owing to certain family members conduct. Yes she does have legal documents which I have seen and many of those who are already appropriating items are not in the will. I fear this will cause further repercussion when she...

    Death Updated - Cannot come to terms with grandmothers terminal cancer diagnosis. Cut ties or be institutionalized?

    My Grandmother has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and only has a short time left to live. Although I am 35, I have no experience of death other than my Grandfather passing when I was only 5 so do not really recall it. This experience alone is causing me great upset and anguish...

    Death Updated - Cannot come to terms with grandmothers terminal cancer diagnosis. Cut ties or be institutionalized?

    Thank you for your reply Esterio. It means a great deal that you took the time to respond. I know I’ve done the best by my Grandmother during her life and know she would want me to do what’s right for me, but only I can ultimately decide that. I’ve never really experienced death, only losing...

    Dissociation - new ‘symptoms’

    Apologies Digger. I didn’t see your post. No, I’ve have no medical causes ruled out as owing to my illnesses I have to conduct my doctors appointments and such via telephone. My illnesses as a whole are very niche with my PTSD meaning I cannot engage with males face to face (I am male too), my...

    Dissociation - new ‘symptoms’

    I’ve spoken with a doctor and they seem to think it’s migraine associated but as this happens during dissociation I don’t believe it is, hence posting here.
