I use hydroxyzine pamoate to help me sleep. It works pretty well for me for that.


Worked too well for me. I’d be a groggy mess most of the morning too

Any idea how many days they can postpone joining date due to BGV process. When I check with recruiter, they are saying 80% of BGV process is completed and trying to get the approval from bgv team. I am bit worrying that how many days it takes for onboard.

I have been going through a rough patch with my boyfriend. We have been together for over two years, with about 6 months of regular dating, 8 months of long distance and the remaining time during the pandemic (not living together.) Note- I am fortunate to have next to no anxiety.

The pandemic was very difficult for my boyfriend as he is a hypochondriac (which i found out a year after dating) was living in a new city with no friends, and started a job remotely. He began to get extremely (cont)

Hi friends, need to share a podcast that I found the other day that has been so incredibly helpful: Dr. Margaret Rutherford’s SelfWork Podcast. She talks about mental health issues from a therapist POV with so much knowledge, caring and empathy. It’s so calming to listen to and has kept me sane this weekend. I hope it can help others here too.


Anyone else think firms should sponsor digital / online therapy resources? It'd make this traveling thing easier. I can’t seem to find a therapist that works with my schedule.


I have my kids this weekend and took them to get groceries for some fun meals. On the drive home, my 8-year old asked me “do you love your life?” As I gave them hugs and kisses before bed, she asked me “are you happy?”

My kids are my whole world. I wish I could have said “yes” and meant it. I hate that my daughter feels she needs to worry about me.


Started a new job after 3 months unemployment and anxiety/depression has returned with a vengeance. Nothing stressful has happened yet…but I can’t sleep and generally feel on edge. I work out and am on medication…how do you manage your anxiety?!


If nothing else, teach yourself how to get through a bad night. Sleep. Read. Binge watch a TV show. On your worst nights, have a plan of how to keep yourself safe, even if that means avoiding thinking

I haven’t been diagnosed but have suspected for a while something is up. I have been pretty unmotivated for years even though I was a high performer. Currently feel as if my career is going sideways/backwards and struggle to really get any motivation to do something about it. I know I need to switch jobs because my current employer lied about compensation and my development is not happening. Any tips on what may be going on or how to overcome?


25 but i feel like my city is suffocating me.. and I ready for new experiences or am i just running away from my problems?


My therapist just told me I'm you ever feel like they tell you things you hear a lot or could have figured out on your own? Like take care of yourself, it's ok to feel such and such, etc. I'm still newer to therapy so wondering if that's the common experience? Do you ever have moments where you're like wow that actually is eye opening and I wouldn't have gotten that from reading self help books and websites etc?


I had a one on one work meeting with a partner and I noticed hyperventilation was coming. And I was having trouble breathing. I did talk through what I needed to quickly but then again I said out loud I can't breathe, twice. Partner didn't say anything about it after a brief silence. And proceeded with the meeting. I did get better towards the end of the meeting but..
I don't know what response I was expecting. I just wanted to share this experience where I feel safe to do so here.
