    Hearing voices from the heavens?

    This is about my aunt, but she texted my parents one day asking if she could stay at their house for some time.

    I've had the worst few days

    It's not simply one thing, just things piling on one another. I lost it today, several times. Helpless, hopeless, isolating myself. I am hoping my meds will bring me back. I don't have a lot of support but I do have a wonderful therapist. Thank you for having me on here.

    Is it reasonable to cut toxic people from life with no warning?

    I've found myself in a situation where I have had to remove negative people from my life because I am tired of the drama they bring. I am currently too exhausted to care anymore and I just don't see any benefit of having them around. 1. Narcissistic 2. Complainers who bring nothing positive 3...

    Sex and Self-Confidence

    Hello, I'm asking about an ongoing dilemma I'm having with myself over my girlfriend. Simply put, we have differing views on sex.
