My name is Burke and I have psychotic depression, as well as a host of anxiety-related issues and PTSD.


The "psychotic" bit sounds exotic but mostly involves a semi-constant stream of voices behind one shoulder and occasional visual hallucinations. I struggle with paranoia but I'm aware of my own delusions and can usually separate them from 'reality'. It's a bit embarrassing really.


I'm constantly depressed these days, and have been experiencing varying degrees of psychosis for almost twenty years. I am currently taking an antidepressant as well as an antipsychotic, which is handling my anxiety very well but not yet affecting my depression or my hallucinations.


I was recently hospitalized on the encouragement of my therapist and I just started these meds a week ago.


What else? I'm a doll collector and a writer, I love everything creepy / spooky / weird, I spend a ridiculous amount of time on Tumblr, and my favorite dessert is ice cream.. any flavor.


I look forward to getting to know you all better!

Hi Burke,


It sounds like you are a real creative soul! I'm sorry for all your struggles and hope that you'll stick around the forums. It's a great place for information, as well as giving and receiving support. It may be a depression forum but we do have some "fun" threads here too. There are a great many people that are pretty spectacular.


Take care :hugs:
