Don't know about lots of facial hair growth, but for the first time ever I've become a little conscious of my "moustache" - I'm blonde and the hairs are very fine and light, but I wasn't sure if I was noticing them cause I'm getting old and everything is starting to look crap or if my makeup was too dry or something...

FIFTEEN WEEKS?? ok. well good to know because i've been wondering if it's worth just tapering off, and thought maybe I should just stop and deal with it for a week or two, but 15 weeks?? that's wrong. Why didn't your doctor taper it for you? I've taken nearly a year to drop from 300 to 150...

I haven't read all the answers thoroughly but we have an 8 yr old who is really similar in terms of horrible moodiness and swings of mood. Of course, me having bipolar I am always looking to see if my girls have any signs of any mental disorders in case it's genetic.

it could be an anxiety thing, not wanting to think - which we tend to do when we are on our own!! So instead of drinking/taking drugs or some other self destructive behaviour you are seeking people's company which is not a bad thing in itself. Insecurity is if you only like yourself if other people like you. Maybe it's just a season where you don&#x...

V. embarrassed to have to ask this, but has anyone else gone through a period of infatuation with their therapist? Do you think it's probably related to being hypomanic, orhaving someone finally "getting" you, or just that someone is paying undivided caring attention to you for an hour? I'm not stupid, I get all the rational stuff (I&...
