    Teeth and bulimia

    The ceasing to exist button

    If you could press a big, red button, to no longer BE, would you? I know I would. My life went tits up when I was 17 and has been one mistake after another since then, I'm in my 40's. I have 2 sons, one is an adult, the other is in foster care, all due my shitty mental health. My MH...

    Own Body Phobia?

    What is the name of the phobia that causes a person (as it causes me) to be too afraid to even look at, or uncover/undress? I've had this for around 48 years and no therapist has ever even scratched the surface of it - many were stunned that they'd never heard of it, until they met me. It...

    I don't like the new mh clinic

    The interior layout is more complex than the old place and it makes me very anxious worrying about taking a wrong turning/getting lost. Then to get out on the ground floor you have to press a button to open the door except the button isn't near the door which would make it easier but a little...

    Google terminates voice

    On January 13, 2009 I started to hear a voice that was nearly as loud as normal spoken words. I think it was about 3 PM. As soon as I woke up, within 1 second I heared a message spoken by an angry male voice with aggressive intonation. This was repeated every few seconds the whole day long...
