    Self-harm- research

    Hi All, I am a Clinical Psychology student with an interest in gaining a deeper understanding of self-harm. I believe self-harm is often misunderstood and therefore wanted your views of why you may self-harm. Have you had experience of self-harm with the past 12 months? If so, you may be...

    Please delete my account or old posts

    Hey I would like to have my old posts or account deleted to make a new one because I am TRYING to be anonymous here but that is very easy (not) when you cannot delete posts.

    I Don't Want To Know Anyone

    Pretty much what the title says. I have my partner and that's it. I stay isolated and a recluse and I'm happy that way. People cause me stress and distress and I want to be anonymous and a recluse. People are untrustworthy and will only eventually stab you in the back. Why is there no place is...

    It's okay im on the internet.

    It's cool. Im anonymous now. How many paranormal experiences can one have exactly? I've only not seen leprachauns and bigfoot at this point. Ghosts, faeries, ufos, spirits, gods, light beings, shadow people, nde's, visions, the greys, met a witch(he could do magic), getting burned, getting...

    Alcohol, my favorite demon

    Well it has finally come down to it. I'm going to have to quit drinking or progressively poison myself until the drink kills me. I drink way to much I know but I'm only 33 so I figured I'd have a bit more time left to party. I got a call yesterday from my doctors office regarding a recent blood...

    Credit Card Discontinued

    I feel so ashamed, but I have to get this out. I can't hold it inside and not tell anyone, and here I am anonymous. I have been behind on my payments on my credit card for too long, and it expires in December. I just got a letter today saying that it will not be renewed because my card is not...

    NHS Direct / NHS Direct Wales

    Does anyone have experience of calling NHS Direct (when it was operational in England) or NHS Direct Wales (still operational)? I was led to believe that you could remain anonymous if you were just phoning for advice rather than for actual medical help, however, I've always been asked for my...

    ATOS Forms Arrived Again

    Funny that? Not really for me though, worrying about a existential lifeline in the run up to Xmas again. Want to say be careful. ATOS have enough technology to swipe IP addresses and home in on folks even if you want to be anonymous and bloody well left alone.

    hi everyone

    Do i need a counsellor?

    I'm in two minds. It's expensive but is it worth it? Should i just rely on the samaritans? Are they just as good and anonymous too which is good. I just can't make my mind up. It's £15 per hour so pretty cheap, and she is experienced.

    Do YOU think that you are mentally ill?

    I'm again thinking hypothetically: If you forget what the doc has told you. If you forget medicine. If you lived somewhere away from people who are judgmental. If you think of YOU. And who YOU are, do you think you are mentally ill? - I'll put up a poll. It'll be anonymous, but I'll...
