how to not think of something
Jan 26, 2015 - 12:43 PM - by Drogheda
so this has helped me a lot lately to exclude ruminating thoughts.

what I need you to do is not think of a pink elephant.

do not think of an elephant.

stop thinking of an elephant.

regardless how that worked on you(because it is rather old), we all know this exercise in futility.

we all seem to (or atleast it tends to be a thing) have a conception of the word "no" or " stop" as if it is some magic bullet. we associate it... [Read More]

Today hasn't been a good day, as with quite a few leading up to it.

I have been on Strattera since January 8th, and although the first week was wonderful, and unexpectedly wonderful at that, the following couple weeks Have been meh. I want to try Adderall, or something that can push me to do more, instead of simply just relieve my anxiety (to a certain degree) and depression.

That being said, Strattera may have reduced my anxiety and it has stayed at that level... [Read More]

Eyes are so distrtacting
Jan 19, 2015 - 7:48 PM - by Shockwaeve
When conversing, I find myself more often than not confused and unsettled by not knowing where to look, more easily when my opponent has a large size specimen. Happened when I was younger, faded away, lately a bit back again, but comes and goes. But once I'm aware, there is just not escape from it in direct face to face stand downs. And then I'm trying 'not to panic' - kay exaggerating but I generally in such situation try to find a middle way to compromise ending up pretending to have to think... [Read More]

what I really need
Jan 19, 2015 - 11:29 AM - by 1000koni
I wonder lately, as I return to the forum, what is it I really need? Is there still all this disconnect between what I need and what I want? Also what I think I want.

And how these questions fit into the traditional therapy formulas. The old fix /acceptance paradigm in shifting sands of life. I believe this much: that medications will not fix life work. They will not give me a purpose where I have not become clear with what I want. Probably they would help, but we all... [Read More]

I don't know.
Jan 19, 2015 - 2:59 AM - by KentUnknown
I hate this feeling, like im worried about something, I don't even know what I am feeling right now. I am here playing xbox, but at the same time I think I am hungry, Im tired, anxious, worrying, but nothing in particular is on my mind. I don't know is all I can really think when I try to get to the bottom of these feelings.

I don't know what to eat
I don't know what Im worrying about
I don't know what tomorrow brings
I don't know who I am
I don't know... [Read More]
