    My family is holding me back

    What do you think it would take for you to make some changes, to help you move forward?
  2. I don't know about your other posts, but God-talk is hard for a lot of people. I think there is still a religious forum - you might get more response there.

    Chest pain again

    Something else you might try if you can is massage. I've had 2 episodes of chest pain (but these were not my first) and I started seeing a massage therapist, who said the muscles in my upper to mid-back were extremely tight and bunched up. I also have very, very tight neck muscles, which are creating arm and chest pain.

    Chest pain again

    I took this for a long while and could not function at all on it.
  5. I do understand where you are coming from but in my experience, lying about what's wrong can only create more problems. Also, I believe it only adds to the stigma. I have dissociative identity disorder and used to end up in places and not know how I got there or come to in the middle of conversations with people I didn't recognize. I made lots of excuses then and, while it helped in the moment, it's made being accepted for who I am very hard and it created a lot of mistrust from friends.
  6. I suspect you will need to rule out the medical before you rule out the psychological. Any psychological issue can cause physical symptoms, many like those you describe. I have them all - plus some - and my primary dx is complex PTSD. I also have depression and anxiety (both associated with the PTSD) and a dissociative disorder. All the best! rhyl

    what does the spleen do

    This is unfortunate. Is there a way to hide your profile? I want to leave but I don't want my stuff searchable.
  9. Worthless people???
  10. Hi and welcome. I was on Abilify and, although I didn't experience anxiety, I did have some troublesome side effects that my doctor insisted could not possibly be the Abilify. I stopped it and they did, too. Contact your doctor and talk to her about alternatives or lowering the dose.
  11. I generally agree, but Abilify was the ONLY drug that ever helped me. I had to stop taking it because of the side effects. They were not debilitating, just annoying.

    Scared. Angry. And like I want to die.
