    How to get my life back?

    I'm in probably the worst state I've ever been in. I graduated high school kinda recently. Ever since then my anxiety has worsened. I'm at the point where I don't really leave the house. When I do go out, it's a process of trying to "look presentable". Only to lead me feeling gross and...

    Trouble with doctors/psychiatrist

    I've been seeing the early intervention team since around august and that involves psychiatrist, psychologist blah blah blah. I'm not officially diagnosed with anything but I'm taking 15mg Olanzapine for what I presumed was a manic episode. But since I've not been diagnosed with anything I feel...

    Lost my son

    I have spent the last 2 years trying to get back to being a proper mum. Unfortunately due to lack of help it hasn't happened. I voluntarily accepted my son needed to be in foster care. He has been gone for just under 2 weeks. Is it odd that I don't miss him? Nothing has changed for me, if...

    I've been trying to understand more about this from every angle. It just makes me so damn angry though. Why would voices go out of there way to help me understand that mental telepathy is real & that i should filter what i should say in my head, or help me gain an understanding of how to be...

    I'm hurting myself

    You don't sound 14. Anyway, you don't self harm because of a girl. You don't get her to stop smoking by hurting yourself and letting her see it. There's no logic in what you are doing.

Anyway. It ended when he said nothing in our house is mine (which isnt true) He has worked for every thing...
