Hi sorry to hear your feeling this way, I've been there too and have a really hard time coping with it. I have a diagnosis of BPD with dependent personality, obsessive compulsive personality and GAD. So it was a shock to find this out although I obviously knew mentally there were issues evident from a young age.

Personally the quietipine never helped me I just found the more anxious & depressed I felt the louder the voices became. The self harm and eating problems for me were a way to try and control something as I felt I had no control over anything else that was happening to me. It's a vicious circle that at this moment you can't seem to find a way out, but I promise you things do get better. I had a mental health team that came to my house and without them I would of been sectioned without a doubt. I now have a plan in place incase I ever become so ill again so that's reassuring.

Are you in the UK? Do you have a diagnosis? I waited twenty odd years for my diagnosis but I found once I did get it the health professionals took me more seriously. Maybe your meds are not for you? Discuss this with your nearest mental health team and be truthful about how you feel and what's going on. Your not alone, I depended on online communities the samaritans and Mind when I was ill. Please don't believe your life will be like this forever as it won't. I know four years is a long time and you feel like loosing hope but mental health is no longer something that's to be ashamed about anymore, it's recognised as a serious illness nowadays.

I don't know your age but please speak to a professional or a support network, even if it is online and you will see there's so many of us suffering with this your not alone.

Take care

Hi there, the answer is yes and theyre everyday, sometimes my mood can change within minutes. I spent so long trying to stop the mood swings or trying to prevent them rather than accepting that they are part of who I am. Also the voices fluctuate with anxiety, the less anxious I am the quieter they are or the less I notice them. I know it’s so hard to get any sort of diagnosis here in the UK I waited so long.

Are you seeing any psych as yet? The first step of the ladder is to see your GP, do you have someone to confide in? Could you speak to a family member?

Don’t suffer in silence, the more you analyse yourself the worse you will feel. Also remember mental health does not stigmatise, there’s no history of it in my family and I had a great childhood so there’s not always an obvious reason why it’s affecting you.

Try to find things that maybe relax you, believe it or not I have colouring books to chill me out

Let me know how your getting on

Take care

I have no family , im a foster child and im currently in a impatient unit and have been for 9 months. Do you find your mood swings affect your relationships. I know why people think i have mental health issue but dont always agree with them. I have a colouring book but find it hard fue to voices being so loud but i try using coping skills. Have you done DBT and did it help you if you dont mind me asking.

Hi there, god yes people didn’t know where they were with me, one minute I was joking the next sitting in silence. Personal relationships were hard work too, for myself and the other person.To be honest it was worse when I was younger.

Yes I’ve tried CBT, is that what you meant? Listen try everything they offer you ok, one of the therapies may work, I preferred the one to ones with the psych it just allowed me to speak openly without being judged. Your in the right place, use it to your advantage to try and feel better, trying new methods is a good thing.

Take care

Hi I am so sorry you are feeling like this, it really sounds like your going through a tough time. I would definately seek medically help to get meds checked and make sure they are they right ones for you, how long have you been on them? Do your nedical team know about the voices in your head? and how your really feeling? I mean REALLY feeling... xWe need to be honest with them so they can help us. You are worth having a life a good life at that. You deserve to be well and to like yourself again, we all deserve that... Please carry on talking to us or your support worker.. Hugs xxx

Hi. I hope you find some comfort that there are other people going through the same. We're all here for you. Don't forget, the diagnosis is hardest part. Things do get better, even though it's hard to believe, but time is both a friend and enemy. Practical advice - cherish the moments when you are happy, and time yourself to keep that feeling for as long as you can. Record your times in a notebook or journal , and challenge yourself to get a new personal best. It's also good to write in a journal or diary once a day, and just let your feelings out. Please accept whoever helps. I know it's hard, but people love you.
