Loving someone with mental illness?
Long story very short...... He suffers from a host of mental illnesses... Anxiety and depression being the most prominent. He's been diagnosed but never taken pills or seen anyone. We've been together for 4 years. I love him more than anything in this world. But he's controlling, jealous, selfish and a lot of other things that make me very upset a lot of the time. I really don't want to lose him, I just desperately want him to be kinder to me. I know I deserve better but I don't want anyone but him. He hurt me really badly recently (emotionally), he keeps saying he's extremely sorry and wants to make it up to me. But he's lost all of my trust. I don't know what to do. I want to be with him more than anything, I can't imagine my life without him, but I don't want to be hurt anymore. I know he wants to change. I see it in his eyes. But he's obviously going through a lot of things on his own and there's something stopping him from trying to improve. He skips out on work, isn't motived, ambitious. I just want him to be happy but I'm scared it can't be with me. I know deep down this isn't him, it's his mental illness. But how can I convince him he needs to help himself if he wants to be together? I don't want to lose him.
Is it possible to COMPLETELY overcome a mental illness?
i have a freind who was just your typical kid and teenager growing up. The guy all the gurls liked growing up. But when he was like 15 a drastic change took place overnight. He hadda argument with his mom and left the house to live with grand parents where he grew up most his life. But as he went to sleep one night he woke up in the middel of the night to have the room moving and turning on him. sense then hes never been the same and missis the days he was NORMAL. Now he feels uneasy all the time cant stand being around to manny people at once and doesent feel safe far from home. Now i heard that gramadic thing in life can mess someone up brain wize. No one in his family execpt his uncle is mental unstable. Is it possible for him to ever FULLY recovor?

Is this possible?? your answers are much appriciated thank you.
What is mentally wrong with my boyfriend?
ok I have been dateing my boyfriend for 2 and a half years now, but I think that there is something mentally wrong with him. He is always depressed about his life and talks of suicide from time to time. He is what I find out now to be a compulsive liar, and a sex addict. He tends to say things he don't mean all the time and change moods quickly, he is also very influenced by his friends as if he has no mind of his own. He even told me a coupe of times that he is going to flip out and either hurt himself or someone close to him one day, because he so stress (over nothing). He even told me like 3 times that he wanted me dead, that revenge on his behalf for something that happen long ago between which is not even that serious would be death to me, he said the only way he can get even is if I die, if he kills me? What is wrong with him?

LSD. Your answer can change my life?
my english is not good, sorry please do not judge me for what i have done, please just answer my question truthfully without putting me down for the decision i made i am already experience short term effects, i took my first trip 2 weeks ago and i have been different ever since. This is my story after taking LSD nothing has been the same. I have been more opened to the world around me, to nature, and the unseen. before i was very closed minded, but LSD opened my mind. It's like looking through a microscope when taking LSD, you see a whole another world. that part is ok, but since i feel like i have been seeing slight hallucinations such as, bugs running across my foot, or a black smudge on peoples faces. i also feel like what i am seeing is not real, i feel like i'm staring into a picture and it is impossible to see the true world, the true world being the LSD world. if you have seen the American movie "Matrix" it is like this. You know that what your seeing is (cont.)
