    99.9% of hallucinations are gone AMA

    I fell into psychotic depression in late April and since then, I've been on a roller-coaster ride of ups and downs. Some of those big and small. I've learned a lot since then (still learning). Go ahead and ask me anything you want to know.

    breathing issues, deep breaths

    Even when I'm sat down I feel like I need to fill big deep breaths and sometimes I can't and it worries me. But why would I need big deep breaths if I'm just sat watching TV?? Is trying to take these big breaths causing this issue do you think??

    I've found that my voices are the worst whenever I'm eating. I might be slightly neurotic about eating and thus this happens, but I was wondering if anybody else gets this too. Is eating a big voices trigger for anyone, and if so, how do you deal with it?

    I can't look myself in the mirror

    I can't look myself in the mirror. Not because i've done anything horrible. But because of what my partner thinks about me. I've been in a relationship with a man for 2 years. He doesn't work, but I provide 100% for him. I've bailed him out of jail because he's hit me. I've paid his way through...

    I hate life

    Just that, I wish the world would just eat me up. I'm a bad person and don't deserve to be living life. I have a big mouth and have torn my family apart by saying my brother sexually abused me.

    Mariah Carey reveals she has bipolar

    Interesting but maybe not surprising. It has to be quite something to be a performing artist on the big stage with bipolar though... Mariah Carey reveals she has bipolar disorder | The Independent

    Not Sure. Am I Making a Big Deal Out of Nothing?

    So a few years back in the 7th grade I had an experience with a classmate that disturbed me. Basically we had a group project and I was paired with the guy who was basically the class clown and a female friend of his. We were working on something and he made this inappropriate joke then before I...

    What is the spiritual message of a voice?

    I got a few voices through that made jokes... one said, “not everyone thinks their big toe talks to them”, which was a previous voice hearing experience. Funny. Everything I think could be a load of bullshit. I make big complicated schemes in my mind about how my soul could be in danger, but it...

    Writing a recovery story

    I think once you have a recovery graph, you should be able to write your recovery story, a simple tale about what happened to you when you had your mental health episode and what helped you afterwards. Most mental health episodes are characterised by a period of slow recovery afterwards. The...

    I've caught myself in a bit of a rut lately and I'm not entirely sure how to help myself out and could really use a listening ear. Just about anything anyone has to say would help. I've always considered myself a fairly happy individual. particularly these last couple years I've been...
